Originally, bettors were unable to bet on in-state college teams as we’ve seen in other states such as New Jersey and Virginia. Now, that ban is lifted, but bettors must place their wager on an in-state college team at a retail sportsbook.
The other caveat impacts bettors upon signup. Illinois required online bettors to complete their online registration in person at a retail sportsbook.
After March 5, 2022, Illinois bettors are able to sign up for an online sportsbook from wherever they please, as long as they are within state lines.
