Indiana Gaming Commission Welcomes PrizePicks

Process Underway for Obtaining Permanent Fantasy License

PrizePicks, the largest fantasy sports operator in North America, announced today that the Indiana Gaming Commission has granted the company a temporary license to operate its daily fantasy sports (DFS) business in Indiana, offering fans in the basketball-loving state an exciting new wrinkle to their sports viewing experience.

‘The Hoosier State’ becomes the latest state in which PrizePicks can now offer its skills-based fantasy sports platform.  As home to the NBA’s Indiana Pacers and the WNBA’s Indiana Fever, the arrival of PrizePicks and its industry-leading basketball offerings will be well received.

“Adding Indiana as a licensed state to our portfolio is an important benchmark for our organization as we continue to grow our national footprint,” the Chief Legal Officer and Head of Public Policy for PrizePicks, Jason Barclay, said. “We are extremely grateful to the Indiana Gaming Commission for its collaboration and we hope that this license can be a model for other states with competitive gaming markets.”

The temporary license in Indiana continues what has been a rousing year for PrizePicks, following partnerships with MLB’s Atlanta Braves, NASCAR, rapper Meek Mill and the BIG3 basketball league owned by hip-hop legend Ice Cube. On June 27, PrizePicks was named the fastest-growing company in Georgia among the upper middle market by the Atlanta Association for Corporate Growth.

“As an author of the fantasy sports legislation in Indiana, I’m happy to see Indiana continue to be a leader in creating a successful regulatory environment for fostering innovation in the fantasy sports space,” said Indiana State Senator Jon Ford (R-Terre Haute), who is also President of the National Council of Legislators from Gaming States (NCLGS).
