In recent times it has been decreed that to open an online sportsbook account and to make deposits and withdrawals, you do not need to make a physical, in-person visit to a casino.
Great news and real help in being able to fully manage your online sportsbook account at your own convenience.
The even better news is there are a whole host of ways to make deposits and withdrawals
Credit & Debit Cards
While credit cards are widely accepted, we would advise using credit to fund your wagering accounts, especially if you do not have the funds to fully repay within the month. Betting with money you do not have is worse than betting with money you can not afford. Please see our guide to responsible gambling for more information.
Debit cards are a far better option; funds are available instantly in most cases. Withdrawals will often be processed by the sportsbook within 24 hours using this method, but depending on your bank, it could take up to 5 working days to receive your funds back to your physical account.

Quite often, sportsbooks and casinos offer their own branded pre-paid cards. You can load them up and make deposits and withdrawals with them quickly and be able to access the cash from ATMS. A superb addition to online money management that works seamlessly with most betting sites in Iowa
Will There be More Methods like EWallets Added?
Indiana deposit methods for sportsbooks are regulated by the Indiana Gaming Commission, which must approve all deposit methods. The IGC seems open to expanding the methods available so we could see more deposit methods coming for Indiana Sports Betting.
Some banks are still blocking all deposits to online betting sites. Many people have found that they must try different deposit methods, such as ACH transfers, to avoid the debit card part of the process. If you have any issues, contact your Indiana Sportsbook customer services, who will be able to talk you through the best methods for you.
So some banks may have an ethical stance on using them to fund your online gambling account with money. Still, prepaid cards and eWallet solutions are generally available in Hoosier State to make things easy for players.
Other forms of deposit methods for Indiana Sportsbooks will vary by provider but include
ACH Wire Transfer
A bank transfer can be a convenient way to fund your betting account. Do check for fees, however, which may vary by bank, and transactions can sometimes take time to clear on both deposits and withdrawals
E-Wallets for depositing and withdrawing from your mobile betting account include well-known brands such as PayPal, Neteller, and Skrill. Instant deposits and withdrawals within 24 hours are typical, and in most cases, no fees are to be paid. Double-check if you want to make multiple transactions this way, as fees can be introduced if this method is abused.
Minimum Deposit & Maximum Withdrawals
All sportsbooks will have a minimum deposit requirement, but they are, in the main, around $10, so they are not prohibitive.
Also, be aware when using deposit methods if any negate the qualification of welcome bonuses. Also, check Wagering requirements of any offer.
Being able to make deposits online also negates the necessity of a visit to a physical sportsbook to make a cash deposit.
