HAMMOND, Ind.—Horseshoe Casino in Hammond will soon open its first sport book.

“The Book” is expected to open on Wednesday, September 4, a day ahead of the start of the 2019 NFL season.

The new sport book will offer wagering on sports including football, basketball, baseball and hockey.

Other sports wagering opportunities will include auto racing, bowling, boxing, cricket, darts and more.

The sports book will be on the casino’s main floor and will be powered by Scientific Games’ OpenBet. It will also feature a video wall, six betting counters and a lounge area.

Indiana lawmakers approved the law in the spring, which allows for betting to begin on September 1 on dozens of professional, collegiate and international sporting events.
