Is Sports Betting Legal in Illinois?
Almost a year after Illinois passed a bill that allowed sports wagering both online and in-person, legal sports betting officially arrived in the state. Betting on any minor-league sports event or any game involving an Illinois based collegiate team is prohibited.
While mobile betting is actually legal, it is still unavailable to Illinois citizens at this time and currently has no set date for launch. Sports bets can be placed at a variety of casino’s in person.
