- theScore Bet app will now be available under Indiana sportsbook offerings.
- Indiana has granted theScore a temporary license.
- Launch is expected by the end of Fall 2020, once the regulatory process is complete.
The Indiana Gaming Commission has welcomed theScore and their sports betting app theScore Bet to join their sportsbook offerings under a temporary vendor license.

All things considered, theScore Bet is late to the game compared to some other sports betting options and applications. They are just the most recent to enter the sports betting climate in Indiana. Their partnership with Penn National Gaming was a huge step toward becoming one of the nations top sports betting providers.
John Levy, Founder, and CEO of theScore, was positive when speaking about his partnership with Penn National Gaming:
“We are thrilled that Penn National believes in, and has invested in, our vision of an integrated approach to media and sports betting and we can’t wait to unveil the best-in-class mobile betting experience that we’ve been building for sports fans.”
Penn National Gaming and theScore have come to terms on a 20-year deal that will only cover 11 states. Their overall goal will be improving recognition of their brand in a sports betting atmosphere that boasts some historic companies.
Considering there aren’t many sports available for viewing at the moment anyway, theScore’s aims to launch seem to have optimal timing. Considering the processing time for their permanent license, they should be up and active when leagues return.
