So far, there are seven regulated online sportsbooks in Illinois: BetRivers, DraftKings, FanDuel, PointsBet, Caesars, Barstool and BetMGM.
As many as three more appear to be coming — Circa, Hard Rock and Betway. Circa and Hard Rock could begin taking bets in 2023. 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. Betway could arrive 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.
