Online registration is back on the Illinois sports betting scene — and this time, it’s permanent! This means new bettors can complete registration at home and claim over $5,000 in Illinois sports betting bonus offers with the deals below, all from the comfort of home!
As of today, March 5, sports bettors in the Land of Lincoln can complete the registration process for sportsbook accounts without visiting a retail betting location. Just sign up, make a deposit, and start betting, all from your desktop or mobile device, from the comfort of your home or wherever in the state you may be.
Now that the in-person registration requirement has been lifted, you can claim a number of excellent Illinois sports betting bonuses and promos from various sportsbooks. Here’s a rundown of the top bonus offers available in Illinois.
DraftKings IL : $50 Free Bet + $1,000 Deposit Match
DraftKings Illinois is offering new customers a $50 free bet with a deposit of at least $5, plus a 20% deposit match up to to $1,000. That means if you deposit $5,000, you’ll get the whole bonus. But don’t worry, it scales. For example, if you deposit $500, you’ll still receive $100 in bonus credit.
There is a 5x play-through requirement, meaning you’ll have to wager at least five times your deposit match before you can withdraw the money.
BetMGM Illinois: $1,000 Risk-Free Bet
New to the state as of March 5, BetMGM Illinois is offering new customers a risk-free bet worth as much as their first deposit up to $1,000. Just like the offers above, should your risk-free bet lose, your account will be credited its amount. Should it win, your account will be that much richer.
PointsBet: Up To $2,000 In Risk-Free Bets
PointsBet‘s welcome bonus comes with a high dollar amount attached, though to claim it you must be willing to try something a bit different. This bonus comes in two parts. The first part is a $500 risk-free fixed-odds bet, similar to what FanDuel offers above. The second part is a risk-free PointsBetting wager up to $1,500. PointsBetting is a system unique to PointsBet, in which your payout or risk is determined by the degree of your win or loss.
FanDuel Illinois: $1,000 Risk-Free Bet
Register for FanDuel, and you’ll be treated to a risk-free bet equal to your first deposit up to $1,000. Place your first bet and get a refund in site credit if you lose. If your bet wins, you’re paid out as normal, and the bonus expires.
BetRivers Illinois: Deposit Match Bonus Up To $250
Illinois-native BetRivers is a great hometown sportsbook. When you sign up for BetRivers IL, you get a deposit match bonus up to $250. It may not seem like much, but it’s actually one of the more user-friendly bonuses for Illinois bettors. The $250 match comes with only a 1x playthrough requirement. For this reason, BetRivers’ bonus is easier to withdraw than with other sportsbooks.
