In May, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb signed a sports betting bill and since then, several casinos have launched sportsbooks. Earlier this week, it was announced that mobile sports betting will begin next week in Indiana. Also this week, we have a record-breaking poker tournament for PokerStars, New Hampshire receiving sports betting proposals, a poker network closing and the sale of a Las Vegas casino.

Let’s begin with some big numbers from PokerStars:

5. WCOOP 2019 becomes biggest in PokerStars history.
The World Championship of Online Poker tallied some massive figures throughout its annual online series. It awarded a record-breaking $104.7 million across 20 days of action and surpassed its $75 million guarantee by almost $30 million.

4. New Hampshire Lottery receives 13 proposals for sports betting.
Thirteen vendors and retailers sent the New Hampshire Lottery a proposal to offer sports betting in The Granite State.

3. Microgaming Poker Network set to close.
Microgaming has announced that the Microgaming Poker Network is set to close in 2020.

2. Caesars Entertainment announces sale of Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.
On Monday, Caesars Entertainment said it had signed an agreement to sell the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino to a company controlled by a principal of Imperial Companies for $516.3 million.

1. Mobile sports betting heading to Indiana
French Lick Resort launched retail sports betting on 6 September.

Now, the Indiana resort has mobile sports betting in its sights. Rush Street Gaming was given the green light from the Indiana Gaming Commission to conduct mobile sports wagering through the resort, beginning 3 October.

“We are partnering with Rush Street Interactive to provide our guests in the casino and online with a premier entertainment experience for football season and beyond,” said Chris Leininger, Chief Operating Officer of French Lick Resort Casino. “Rush Street Interactive is a proven leader in sports betting, and we know sports fans across Indiana will be thrilled with our new in-casino and online sportsbooks.”
