Currently, there are three online sportsbooks in Illinois. BetRivers launched on June 18, thanks to an executive order from the governor. DraftKings followed suit on Aug. 5. FanDuel launched on Aug. 28 and PointsBet did the same on Sept. 12. William Hill went live with its app on Sept. 15.
Casinos, lottery outlets, stadiums and racetracks can apply for licenses, along with three online-only licenses.
We expect other brands like Fox Bet and Unibet to offer sports betting via apps and online soon.
You can bet on pro sports and college games (as long as those college games occur outside of the state). As well as all the popular single match and parlay bets. Newer forms of sports betting will be available online, such as in-play betting on live events and cash-out betting.
