Though Illinois had been requiring in-person registration at a physical sportsbook since sports betting became legal in March, Governor Pritzker has temporarily put a stop to that due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

UFC 251 — which will take place on Saturday, July 11 — provides bettors in the state a great reason to claim this offer for $250 in free bets. No trip to a book required, a premier event and major sports returning in a few weeks? Umm … yes, please.

You’ll soon learn that signing up online for an account is very simple. To take advantage of BetRivers’ promotion, all you have to do is follow these steps:

  1. Click this link
  2. Sign up using the promo code 250MATCH
  3. Deposit into your account via PayPal, online banking or credit card

And, boom! After funding your account, you’ll have your deposit matched instantly, up to $250. This match comes in the form of bonus funds, but don’t worry! If you’re used to seeing 10x rollovers, you can kiss those days goodbye. BetRivers only requires a 1x rollover, which means once you’ve only have to put your $250 in free bets back into play once before it gets converted to cash that you can withdraw at any time.

With mandatory in-person registration potentially returning at some point, this is a wise time for you to get while the getting’s good.
