Illinois Sports Betting

Illinois legalized sports betting in June 2019, and it went live in March 2020, unfortunately just days before Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19, prompting the shutdown of sports worldwide shortly after.

For a 54-day period during the pandemic, the state lifted its in-person registration requirement, allowing bettors to sign up for accounts online. But that will stop being the case on Monday, July 27.

BetRivers in Illinois was the first to launch in the state, but other books, including DraftKings, FanDuel, BetMGM, PointsBet and others, will be quick to follow with offering online betting.

When DraftKings at Casino Queen Sportsbook launches, it will mark eighth state for the newly-public company in the U.S. They’re currently live in Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
