It took an extended weekend session by the Illinois legislature in early June 2019, but the state surprised some by getting its sports betting bill to the finish line this year. When Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed the bill into law on June 28, many expected the state would be up and running in time for football, but that did not materialize, as the state ended up launching on March 9, 2020, just ahead of March Madness. Illinois' bill is unique in this it gives its brick-and-mortar operations -- casinos, racetracks and sports venues -- an 18-month head start over online-only operators like FanDuel and DraftKings. The licensed brick-and-mortar operations can offer mobile betting right away, but there's a little more friction in the process, as in-person registration will be required for 18 months. Under the bill, sports stadiums such as Wrigley Field (Cubs), the United Center (Bulls), Soldier Field (Bears) and Guaranteed Rate Field (White Sox) could apply to have betting kiosks.
