Illinois Sports Betting Officially Online with BetRivers Sportsbook

The launch of retail sports betting was largely put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we wrote about how Governor Pritzker recently allowed residents in Illinois to register for sportsbooks from anywhere .

Attempting to strike while the iron is hot, BetRivers has opened up its online sportsbook through its Rivers Casino Des Plaines license.

While most sports are still on hiatus due to continued coronavirus concerns, states like Colorado have seen a pretty good handle, all things considered.

While those markets don’t draw the same attention as the NBA, NHL, and of course college football and the NFL, bettors have been keeping busy learning about new things and getting their action in somewhere else.

The fact that BetRivers is the first live online sportsbook in Illinois should give them a huge leg up on the market, which includes the third-most populous city and metro area in the United States.

BetRivers has partnered with Rush Street Interactive to launch the app, which is one of the best among the US operators and would be a great introduction for any aspiring bettors in Illinois.
