Where can Illinois customers bet on sports online or with an app?
Sports betting has been legalized in Illinois. It looks like legal sportsbooks will be in operation for March Madness 2020. The Illinois Gaming Board issued the first three sports betting licenses. They went to Penn National Gaming, Eldorado Resorts, and Midwest Gaming and Entertainment. For the first 18 months online only sportsbooks will not be able to operate in Illinois. This means no Fanduel or Draftkings.
Note: We will review the sports betting apps once they are released. They should be up and operational by the middle of March.
