The state of Indiana now has another option for current and future online sports bettors. Joining the likes of FanDuel and DraftKings, BetRivers has now come to the Hoosier State.
Indiana has slowly but surely started growing in terms of the online sportsbook offerings since allowing sports betting in September 2019, becoming the 13th state in the nation at the time.
BetRivers has a foothold in Pennsylvania already. Let’s look closer at what BetRivers IN has to offer.

BetRivers IN does have a welcome offer for new players. The offering comes in the form of a deposit match.
Using the promo code “250MATCH”, BetRivers IN will match your initial deposit 100 percent up to $250.
Players will have access to the bonus money after a 1x playthrough, meaning players must wager an amount equal to the bonus in order to access the bonus money.
If you have a Rush Rewards or another BetRivers related account, you’ll be able to sync your data and be ready to go. However, for brand new players the registration process is three steps.
Across these three steps, BetRivers IN will ask for information such as your email, create a password, promo code (for instance the welcome offer one), your name, address, zip code, date of birth, gender, last four of your social security number.
Currently, BetRivers IN is offered for desktop, mobile browsers and Android. There is no iOS offering right now, but coming to Indiana as a fresh entity, this is likely something that will be addressed almost immediately.
With that said, looking at the desktop platform, this is an impressive interface. The combination of the blue and white with a touch of yellow on the site really make everything pop and allows for aesthetically pleasing experience.
At the top of the page, you’ll find links for the following: Get Started, Promotions, Rewards, Help Center and Casino Games.
Going down the left-side of the screen, you’ll find the sports that are offered, in addition to the live betting options, daily odds boost, and jackpot parlay.
By default, in the middle of the screen, the games that are actively in progress are displayed and upon clicking on a sport you’re interested in, those games will appear.
To access the betslip, what you choose the desired bet type of moneyline, spread and totals, the betslip pops up from the bottom right-hand side and you can place single bets or build a parlay here.
For Android app users, everything is almost exactly the same, so there’s nothing to worry about going from desktop to mobile.
Even being fresh in the state, BetRivers IN has odds right along with the top competitors. When it comes to BetRivers IN, one thing you do not need to worry about is the betting odds.
One of the best things about BetRivers IN is all of the features offered in addition to your traditional sports betting.
Live Betting: This is just as the name sounds—betting on live events. Here, you can bet on events as they progress through, up until pretty much the conclusion of the contest.
Cash Out: With this, players can exit a wager earlier, whether they are in a winning or losing position. You will not collect the full potential winnings or lose the entire amount you wagered, but the option to exit a bet early is there with cash out!
Jackpot Parlay: This is a unique system offered by BetRivers IN. Here, you can bet on three-to-eight legs that are pre-determined by BetRivers IN. Each leg, depending on the contents of the potential parlay will render a different amount of potential winnings. For example, just quickly clicking on it and picking eight legs, you can bet $1 and win close to $100k. Of course, eight legs is extremely difficult to pull off, but the option is there!
Daily Odds Boost: Each day, BetRivers IN will have a different menu of options of potential wagers where BetRivers IN has boosted the odds making it a bit more enticing to potentially wager on that event.
Outside of the welcome offer, the only promotion applicable to the sportsbook at the time of writing was the daily odds boosts specials. These specials allow you to get a better price for the biggest games that day.
In addition to daily odds boosts, returning players can also benefit from the iRush Rewards program offered by BetRivers IN. Like with any rewards program: the more you bet, the bigger your rewards!
At the north end of the home page, there is a “Help Center” button. Here, you are brought to not only the FAQ portion of the BetRivers IN site, but to the right, there are links to email and live chat support, which is available between 9:30 a.m. and 2 a.m. It’s not quite 24 hours, but it’s quite close.
Going through the Help Center again, scroll down and you’ll find an entire portion of the FAQ section dedicated to Responsible Gaming.
Here, there are articles on how to set limits for yourself in terms of spending, deposit and session. You can also set a cooldown timer on your account and check your recent gaming history. There are seven different articles all about how to keep you, the customer, safe and help those who may be experiencing a gambling problem.
Aside from not having iOS compatibility yet or the lack of new and fun promotions, BetRivers IN is yet another wonderful option for those looking to get into sports betting if you’re in Indiana.
The state of Indiana is continuing to add top tier sportsbooks to its gambling infrastructure and BetRivers IN is the latest installment.
