So far, there are eight regulated online sportsbooks in Illinois: BetRivers, DraftKings, FanDuel, PointsBet, Caesars, Barstool, BetMGM and Circa.
Two more new ones appear to be coming — Hard Rock Bet and Betway. Hard Rock Bet could begin taking bets in 2023. Betway could arrive in 2024. Also, look for ESPN Bet to take over Barstool’s Illinois Sportsbook sometime in 2023 and Fanatics to complete a purchase of PointsBet and take over PB’s operation in Illinois in 2024.
The more sportsbooks and the more competition, the better it is for you. Take advantage of welcome offers and bonus bets when you sign up at a legal Illinois sportsbook. All the popular betting options are available, including moneylines and same-game parlays.
