In May 2018, the US Supreme Court overturned decades of sports betting prohibition and ushered in an era where folks across the country can now place sports wagers legally.

This year, Illinois lawmakers moved swiftly to pass sports wagering legislation in the state.  The state has moved more slowly (and some would suggest more cautiously) in setting up state-operated retail sportsbooks and mobile betting platforms.

License applications were expected to be available December 19, 2019.  There are three mobile-only providers that are required to wait 18 months from the official launch of sportsbooks operating from the state before going online.

Sites like Bovada and Jazz Sports will benefit from the requirement that mobile wagering accounts must be set up in-person at one of the state's casinos for at least the next two years.

Bovada has licenses in both Canada and Antigua but will not be able to obtain a license in Illinois.
