Caesars Interactive Entertainment entered the Indiana sports betting market in May 2020 as the state’s seventh mobile sportsbook provider. The Caesars Indiana sportsbook app operates off a license held by the Horseshoe Hammond, which itself is owned by Caesars Entertainment Corporation.
The Caesars Indiana app is available to customers 21 or older and located within state lines. Customers do not need to be Indiana residents – and can in fact sign up from anywhere – but must be located within state lines in order to place wagers.
Caesars Sportsbook came to the Hoosier State with roughly three years of online sports betting experience following launches in Nevada (2017), New Jersey (2018) and Pennsylvania (2019). As such, the Caesars Indiana app launched with full functionality from the beginning. Customers can visit the Caesars Sportsbook website or download the iOS/Android app to bet on a wide range of professional and college sports.
Caesars Indiana Sportsbook launched in May 2020 in partnership with Horseshoe Hammond after receiving the approval of the Indiana Gaming Commission. Customers can bet on professional and college sports, claim a welcome bonus and place in-game wagers during most major games. A loyalty program that rewards both in-person and online play further makes Caesars Sportsbook an attractive choice for frequent visitors to Horseshoe Hammond and Caesars Southern Indiana.

Caesars Indiana Bonuses
Caesars Indiana sportsbook offers a welcome bonus for new customers plus regular promotions that are announced via e-mail.
Registration Offer: Up to $300 Free Bet
All new customers who sign up for an account, make a deposit and place a wager qualify for a free bet of equal size worth up to $300.
For example, a customer who signs up and places a first a first wager of $200 will be rewarded with a free bet worth $200 that may be used to place additional wagers.
Important: The first bet must have odds of -200 or greater to qualify for the free bet bonus. This means wagers placed at odds of -200, -150, +110 and +300 would all qualify while a wager placed at odds of -250 would not.
Upon receiving the free bet, customers may use it to place additional wagers at odds of -200 or greater. The free bet itself cannot be cashed out and is not returned as a part of any winnings, but anything won with the free bet may be withdrawn as normal.
Caesars Rewards Program
Caesars Entertainment runs an all-encompassing reward program that extends across its land-based properties around the world and online gaming brands, including Caesars Indiana Sportsbook.
Customers can register at caesars.com/myrewards and from that point on, all wagers placed online earn tier points and reward points. Tier points move players up through the six-tiered rewards system that unlocks increasingly valuable rewards starting with discounted hotel stays and moving up from there to include perks such as two free nights at Caesars Bluewaters Dubai.
Meanwhile, customers may also redeem rewards credits for perks of their choice – including free play at Caesars casinos, entry to WSOP events, dining credits, spa credits, show tickets, shopping credits and more.
Caesars Indiana Mobile Betting App
Desktop, smartphone and tablet users can bet online with Caesars Sportsbook at in.caesarsonline.com or through dedicated mobile apps for iOS and Android devices.
Note for iPhone/iPad Users: Multiple Caesars Sportsbook apps are listed in the App Store and each is specific to a certain state. Search for “Caesars Indiana Sportsbook” to find the correct version or point your mobile browser to in.caesarsonline.com for a download link.

Caesars Entertainment is partnered with Vegas-based Scientific Games on digital sports betting and online gaming in multiple states. The two renewed their partnership in mid-2020 following successful launches in NJ, Pennsylvania and Indiana.
When compared to other mobile apps, Caesars Indiana Sportsbook ranks above average in terms of usability and responsiveness. While it is common for other apps to hang for a second when switching between sports or menu items, the Caesars app responds to user input instantly.
Users should find the mobile app easy to navigate as it is organized in a straightforward manner. Visitors are greeted with a list of popular wagers upon logging in and can use a navigation menu along the bottom of the screen to view all sports, visit the in-play betting area and to see trending (popular) bets.
Tapping the odds on any wager adds that bet to the betting slip, which maintains a running list of all wagers that have been selected. Users can then tap the bet slip icon in the corner of the screen to view all wagers, adjust bet sizes and to combine them into parlays if desired. The betting slip always displays how much money is about to be risked and how much can be won so users can confirm their total risk vs. reward prior to confirming each wager.

Betting with the Caesars Sportsbook Website
Mobile and desktop users can visit in.caesarsonline.com to place wagers online through the responsive website that automatically resizes itself to fit all screen sizes with no download needed.
The Caesars desktop sportsbook looks and functions much like the mobile app but with much more room to view open wagers and see all available markets for each game. As users select wagers, a betting slip located on the right side of the screen is updated with a full list of all pending wagers. There, users can input amounts to wager, create parlays, remove wagers and confirm bets.
One area in which Caesars Online comes up short compared to the competition is a lack of stats or other handicapping tools. While other Indiana sportsbooks provide head-to-head matchup stats (such as how each team has fared against one another in previous matchups and scoring trends), Caesars Online offers no such functionality.

Types of Wagers Offered
Caesars Sportsbook tends to focus most of its attention on the major US sports and the most common types of wagers. Coverage of international sports includes soccer, which is further broken down into markets for MLS, Englad, Italy and Spain.
Although Caesars Sportsbook has offered online betting in the US since 2017, market depth is still lacking significantly relative to the competition. While it is not uncommon for competing sportsbooks to offer 100 or even 200+ wagers for a single event, Caesars Sportsbook sticks primarily to the major types of bets such as moneylines, spreads, totals and a smattering of props.
The major types of wagers offered at Caesars Indiana include:
- Point spreads
The Indiana Gaming Commission’s approved events catalog allows operators to accept wagers on a large variety of sports leagues and events, but Caesars Online has declined to take full advantage to date with coverage mostly limited to major US sports.
The current list of sports covered includes:
- Mixed Martial Arts
- Motor Racing
Caesars Sportsbook In-Play Betting
Caesars Indiana offers in-play betting markets throughout the game for most major sports events, including all the major US pro sports and many college games.
Coverage is adequate at the macro level but drilling down to the micro level once again reveals a lack of market depth. Most in-play events include just a handful of wagering options, particularly full-time and half-time outcomes, plus the occasional prop.
Additionally, a lack of live stats and other real time information further dampen the experience relative to other sportsbooks. The Caesars in-play betting experience may prove useful for hedging pre-game wagers or taking the occasional stab at an in-game market, but other Indiana sportsbooks offer a more complete in-play betting experience.
Caesars Indiana Deposit Methods
Page 23 of Indiana’s sports betting regulations permit licensed betting sites to accept a full range of deposit options. Currently, Caesars Indiana allows customers to fund their accounts via the following methods.
Credit and Debit Card
Customers may fund their Caesars Indiana accounts with Visa, Mastercard and Discover.
ACH eCheck (VIP Preferred)
Customers may enroll in VIP Preferred through the Caesars Sportsbook cashier to add their driver’s license info and bank account numbers. Once complete, customers may send money straight from their bank account to their sportsbook account.
Caesars Online Play+ Card
The Caesars Online Play+ Card is a prepaid debit card that allows customers to make instant online deposits and receive cashouts. After registering and making a deposit, Caesars will mail a physical debit card to the user’s registered address. That card can be used to make ATM withdrawals or purchases wherever Discover is accepted.
Online Bill Pay Deposit
The online bill pay method allows customers to use their existing online banking credentials to authorize a direct bank transfer from their bank account to their sportsbook account. Customers simply choose this method, select an amount to deposit and then login using their existing online banking info to authorize the transfer.
Online bill pay is only compatible with the following banks: Bank of America, BB&T, Chase, HSBC Bank USA, ING Direct, PNC, Regions, SunTrust, TD Bank, U.S. Bank, Capital One 360 and New York Community Bank.
Caesars Online accepts PayPal deposits.
Note: Only personal PayPal accounts may deposit (business accounts are not accepted) and the PayPal account must be linked to an active bank account. PayPal does not allow users to make deposits to online betting operators using a linked credit or debit card.
Responsible Gaming Tools
Section 3 of Indiana’s sports betting regulations require operators to provide several responsible gaming tools, including the ability to set limits for deposits, wagers and time spent logged in.
To that end, Caesars Indiana allows customers to easily set the following limits from within the account management area after logging in.
- Spend limit: Set the maximum amount that may be wagered on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
- Deposit limit: Set the maximum amount that may be deposited on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
- Session limit: Set the amount of time the user may be logged in on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
- Cooling Off Period: Prevent access to the account for anywhere from 3 days to 365 days.
- Self-Exclusion: Customers may self-exclude from all Indiana betting sites from within their Caesars Online accounts. Note that self-exclusion will also be extended to all Caesars Entertainment online gambling brands and properties.
