“Our retail Barstool Sportsbooks at Ameristar Casino East Chicago and Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg have been very well received by our customers since opening this past December, and now Hoosiers from across the state will be able to engage with Dave Portnoy, Dan ‘Big Cat’ Katz, and all of the Barstool personalities through the Barstool Sportsbook app.”

The launch will be accompanied by a series of promotional offers, such as risk-free bets, parlay insurance and range of markets on the NBA playoffs and motor racing event the Indianapolis 500, which takes place on May 30.
