Hold 'em or fold 'em?

Recently, the state of Indiana passed a law allowing for sports betting. Prior to Sept. 1, betting on sports was illegal in the state of Indiana. On Oct. 3, online sports betting was introduced to the game.

With the passing of this law, anyone 21 or older, within the bounds of Indiana, can place bets online via certain apps. It is not uncommon for those who live near the Indiana border to drive to Indiana, place a bet and then leave, as you have to be inside Indiana state lines to place an online bet.

Since the introduction of online sports betting, betting on sports has seen a tremendous increase.
