If you live in Illinois and want to bet on sports, you can do so through remote registration. The state of Illinois recently passed a law that allows sports betting, and the executive order prohibiting in-person registration is set to expire on March 5. Gov. JB Pritzker has repeatedly waived the in-person registration requirement, and it will eventually be eliminated from all sports betting sites. However, before that can happen, there are some important things you should know about remote registration.
Luckily, the state is moving in the right direction. While Illinois is still very far behind New Jersey in sports betting, it is one of the most progressive states in the country. New Jersey now has more sports betting options than Illinois, and is home to dozens of online and retail sportsbooks. The state’s gaming expansion bill passed in June 2019 and is one of Pritzker’s signature bills. In Illinois, you can now bet on sports through your computer, mobile phone, or tablet.
Whether you want to bet on sports in the comfort of your home, or join a mobile sportsbook from afar, you can find a great sports betting site that offers remote registration. The state’s new law also makes remote registration easier and more convenient than ever. Online sportsbook operators use geolocation security technology to keep your information secure. It’s important to choose an online sportsbook that uses a secure payment system.
