BetRivers Launches First Online Sportsbook In Illinois

BetRivers Illinois

Illinois casinos have yet to reopen, but sports bettors now have a way to bet online after BetRivers IL launched last week, becoming the first online sportsbook in the stlate

It has been nearly a year since Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker signed a sports betting bill into law and three months after the first-ever legal sports wagers were placed at a retail sportsbook, also through the BetRivers-owned Rivers Casino in Des Plaines.

BetRivers Sportsbook and Casino

BetRivers Illinois likely the first of many

BetRivers is being given a jump start on the online betting market as the biggest brands in the United States, FanDuel and DraftKings, are required to wait 18 months and pay $20 million for a license to operate in Illinois. In addition to BetRivers, 6 other casinos have been approved for licences in the state.

Players can register for their BetRivers account in Illinois today. Thanks to a recent executive order, players are no longer required to register for their accounts in person due to the coronavirus pandemic, temporarily removing the requirement.

BetRivers Illinois betting options

There aren’t a ton of sports to wager on at the moment, but some international sports and even some US sports have started up, including NASCAR and golf. Other offerings include international soccer, UFC and more obscure sports such as Korean Baseball. Major League Baseball, hockey and basketball could return over the next few months while football is slated to begin in its season in September.

As part of the launch of BetRivers Illinois, the online sportsbook is featuring a variety of “BetRivers Illinois Specials” on Illinois-inspired wagers. You can bet on whether the Bears will win the Super Bowl, whether Kris Bryant of Anthony Rizzo will win the NL MVP or even if Mitchell Trubisky will win the Comeback Player of the Year award in the 2020 season

New players who sign up for BetRivers Sportsbook are treated to a 100% up to $250 BetRivers Illinois bonus when making a first deposit in the sportsbook.
