Best Illinois Betting Apps and Sites
Illinois mobile betting apps in 2020 and further: TVG, Betrivers, Grand Viktoria, Casino Queen, BetAmerica, and TwinSpires are the biggest horse and greyhound betting sites, and will likely be the first to offer mobile apps. Also expected in the future: Unibet, Pointsbet, William Hill, bet365, SBK, TheScore, Fanduel, Draftkings and more US sports books.
Best sports betting via IL app: When online apps become available in Illinois, local horse and greyhound betting will be included. Horse races such as the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes will be as well. All major professional sports (NFL, NBA, MLB, College sports, Soccer, Tennis, UFC, Boxing, Cricket etc.) are included in the sports betting bill in Illinois.
Mobile sports betting in Illinois
Illinois is one of the states that has legalized sports betting, but things have not yet launched in the “Land of Lincoln.” Not only is Illinois dragging their feet when it comes to launching sports betting apps, but the whole topic of online sports betting is even harder to understand.
Illinois wrote into their law that online sportsbooks must wait at least 18 months to open once sports betting is launched, meaning 2021 would be the earliest we would see any apps.
There is a long list of online horse race betting sites available in the state of Illinois, but none of them have any apps out on the market. The off-track betting establishments and the current horse race betting sites will likely be the first ones to offer a betting app when it becomes legalized.
