Seminole Hard Rock Digital, LLC d/b/a Hard Rock Digital: Retail & Mobile, is issued a Temporary Vendor License by the Indiana Gaming Commission January 12, a condition precedent to a final permanent license to conduct retail and mobile sports wagering at Hard Rock Casino Northern Indiana. Hard Rock is the only Indiana casino to feature neither a retail sportsbook nor offer a mobile sports wagering skin. * Hard Rock’s predecessor/s in Gary, Majestic Star Casino I and Majestic Star Casino II, also did not have an operational retail or mobile sportsbook partner. USA Sports Gaming LLC, of Oak Brook, Illinois, initially sought to offer its BetIndiana mobile app via Majestic Star, but never got off the ground. Hard Rock’s almost quasi-step-sister property in Vigo County, Rocksino Terre Haute, was rumored to have been close to a deal with the Golden Nugget Online Sportsbook in a mobile sports wagering (and potential iGaming) partnership. While some might see an imperative to be up and running by the Super Bowl, we believe HRI is playing the long game, is more oriented initially toward getting the retail aspect running, and won’t be rushed into anything
