Kindred Group’s Unibet brand was granted full approval by the Indiana Gaming Commission to launch mobile sports betting in the state.
Unibet Indiana LLC was issued a temporary vendor license in May. This granted them the rights to offer sports betting partnership together with Caesar Entertainment’s Horseshoe Hammond Casino in Hammond, Indiana.
The Commission has now explained that during the period that it operated under a temporary permit, Unibet has “substantially demonstrated” how its mobile sports betting activities satisfied all necessary regulations in the state. As a result, the Commission granted Unibet the right to launch its full mobile sports betting offering in Indiana starting from July 30, 2020.
Kindred signed a multi-state agreement with Caesars in February. Under the deal, Kindred would launch the Unibet brand in Indiana and Iowa, subject to approval in both states. The Iowa section of the deal includes a partnership with Harrah’s Council Bluffs casino.
