With FanDuel Illinois, prospective sports bettors can now join the sportsbook from anywhere in the state. You can sign up for an account online or in person to enjoy the $100 no sweat first bet promotion. To qualify for this promotion, prospective Illinois sports bettors must confirm their Illinois residency. Once they have verified their residency, they will be able to use the credit on launch day.
In-person registration was initially prohibited in Illinois, but has now been reinstated by Governor JB Pritzker, although it will be allowed again by March 5, 2022. Illinois sportsbooks face stiff competition from online and brick-and-mortar sportsbooks. BetRivers, the first sportsbook in the state, is owned by Rush Street Interactive, a company that operates online sportsbooks in several states.
Besides the $100 pre-registration bonus, FanDuel is offering a new user promo. The offer is valid until March 5 and a $100 site credit is included. Using the promo code ‘IL100’ during the pre-registration period will also get you a free $100 bonus. This is an excellent way to test the waters of online sports betting. The fan friendly design is an added bonus. In addition to sports betting, the sportsbook also offers racing and fantasy racing.
Despite the challenges Illinois faces, in-person registration is no longer a problem. In fact, it’s probably one of the biggest advantages of the mobile sports betting industry. Now, Illinois bettors can open an account, deposit money, and place wagers online from anywhere. The new laws should improve the mobile sports betting market in Illinois, which analysts predict will reach $1 billion in sports bets within the next month.
