The status of legalized online gambling in Illinois is complex. The state has embraced a longstanding opposition to online gambling, but this attitude has started to relax with the passage of Senate Bill 690. The bill expanded the number of live casino venues that are permitted in the state, but it also makes allowances for sports betting.

Many feel that the passage of SB 690 is a positive step in the right direction for online gambling in Illinois. Illinois has shown progressive approaches in the past by becoming the first state to allow online lottery sales.

The passage of legislation in late 2019 does pave the way for online sports betting apps, but it appears that this will take some time to be implemented. Illinois is likely to award online sportsbook licenses to land-based casinos in the state that have already established themselves.

Fantasy sports are also permitted by SB 690, and these platforms should be available to Illinois residents very soon. The state stands to gain much-needed revenue by making online gambling in all forms legal for Illinois residents of legal age.
