Welcome to the Indiana Gaming Commission's website.

The IGC has the statutory responsibility to license and exercise regulatory oversight of the state’s 13 casinos.  We are also charged with licensing and regulating Charity Gaming, which includes bingo, charity game nights, raffles, door prize drawings, festivals, water races, qualified drawings and the sale of pull tabs, punch boards and tip boards conducted by qualified non-profit organizations.  There are over 4,000 qualified organizations conducting charitable gaming in our state.  Our gaming control officers and license control counselor enforce the illegal gambling statute, contained in the criminal code, across the entire state. And last but not least, the Athletic Division licenses and oversees boxing and mixed martial arts contests. 

Commission staff takes great pride in our responsibility to ensure the strict regulation and the highest levels of gaming integrity in Indiana. On behalf of our entire staff, it is an honor to serve Governor Mike Pence and the members of the Commission in carrying out our charge.

Staff also strives to be responsive and provide education concerning gaming in Indiana.  If you are unable to find the answers to your questions, please contact us, and we will be happy to assist.
