Bally Bet Launches Sportsbook At Bally’s Evansville Casino

Posted on March 7, 2024

The Bally Bet Sportsbook & Bar is now open at Bally’s Evansville Casino & Hotel. The venue opened Feb. 29 and is now accepting wagers via betting windows open from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.

The sportsbook features multiple large-screen televisions broadcasting sporting events from around the world. Visitors can place wagers at one of three betting windows or six sportsbook kiosks. The sportsbook offers parlays, game prop bets, futures bets and player prop bets, just as it does via the Bally Sportsbook app and betting website.

The new Bally Bet Sportsbook & Bar is in the same location as the former William Hill Sportsbook.

Bar includes 36 beers on tap

Indiana sports betting got off to a strong start in 2024, as bettors wagered $480.5 million in January. Indiana sportsbooks handled more than $4 billion in 2023.

At the Bally Bet Sportsbook, odds are available for NCAA men’s basketball and March Madness, the NBA, NHL, MLB, MLS, international sports, tennis, golf, racing, boxing, and much more. Indiana prohibits betting on amateur athletes younger than 18 and on esports.

Bally’s also has sportsbook retail locations in other states, including Illinois and New Jersey.

Patrons must be at least 21 years of age to enter the sportsbook, where they can partake in a food menu or enjoy one of 36 beers on tap.

Bally’s Evansville was the first casino in Indiana

Bally’s Corporation President George Papanier expressed thanks to those who helped to launch the new retail sportsbook and bar.

“We are … excited to open the Bally Bet Sportsbook at Bally’s Evansville. I would like to thank the state of Indiana for its collaboration throughout this process. And I would also like to recognize our team members for their contributions to this … opportunity.”

Bally’s Evansville Casino & Hotel is located at 421 NW Riverside Drive. It’s owned by Gaming and Leisure Properties and operated by Bally’s Corporation.

It was opened in 1995, when it was known as Casino Aztar. Later, it was briefly called Tropicana Evansville. It was the first casino to open in Indiana.

The casino currently has close to 50,000 square feet of gaming space with nearly 1,000 casino games, including slots and tables.
