The Indiana House previously voted to allow sports betting only at casino sites. But bill sponsor Republican Sen. Mark Messmer of Jasper said Monday not allowing sports wagering through smartphones would be an unreasonable limit and that House negotiators had agreed to the change.

Opponents of mobile device wagering say it would easily allow illegal gambling by minors.

The compromise expected to be voted on this week would also allow the Gary casino to move from Lake Michigan to a site along Interstate 80-94 in the city. It also sets up a competitive process for an operator for a new Terre Haute casino.
