ELGIN, Ill. – William Hill US continues to expand its sports betting reach by launching an online sportsbook in Illinois. The sportsbook operator partnered with the Grand Victoria Casino for retail and mobile sports betting.
All Illinois residents are able to download the William Hill app from anywhere in the Prairie State and partake in sports betting as Governor J.B. Pritzker allowed off-venue sign up for mobile betting temporarily.
Now is the best time for William Hill to join the market as they are able to get sports bettors from anywhere in the state. William Hill can also supply sports betting to one of the biggest sports states in the country.
William Hill Continues To Grow
The Illinois sports betting market has truly boomed in the most recent months. Several sportsbooks have launched in the Prairie State and now America’s leading sportsbook joins that pool of mobile betting apps on offer.
“We’re excited to bring our top-performing mobile app to my hometown state of Illinois,” said Ken Fuchs, President of Digital for William Hill. “We look forward to providing millions of sports fans in the state with the best markets and great service.”
Illinois sports bettors now gain access to the award-winning proprietary platform. William Hill is known for its easy and convenient betting experience as well as its variety of wager options and betting lines.
Illinois now joins Iowa, Nevada, New Jersey, Colorado, and West Virginia as sports betting markets that offer William Hill sports betting online.
Illinois Sports Betting Boom
The Prairie State has been very aggressive in 2020 in regards to launching sportsbooks for its residents and tourists.
In the last few weeks, popular sportsbooks like FanDuel and PointsBet have launched in Illinois with Unibet also claiming market access to the state through a deal with Penn National Gaming. With a major sports betting fan base, it makes sense that sportsbooks want to get into this market.
Illinois is home to the Chicago Bulls, Chicago Bears, Chicago White Sox, and popular NCAA Universities. This makes Illinois prime real estate for legal sports betting.
This launch is just a continued sign that both William Hill and Illinois are continuing to expand in the sports betting arena.
