Sports Betting Success in Illinois

  • FanDuel was initially shut out of the Illinois market but has since charged ahead to become one of the most successful in-state options available.
  • Illinois sports betting reached another record in January 2021 with $581.6 million in wagers.
  • These numbers are up from December’s $491.7 million in bets and $23.9 million in revenue.
  • February could prove even more rewarding with the Super Bowl having taken place the first Sunday of that month.
  • Illinois became the fourth state to surpass $500 million in bets in a single month and sits in the number 4 spot in overall handle behind Pennsylvania, Nevada and New Jersey.
  • DraftKings led the way with $244.2 million in handle, or 42%.
  • FanDuel, however, generated more revenue than DraftKings, $16.9 million to $16.4 million.
  • Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Governor Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker had temporarily lifted the requirement to register on-site and that was continuing through at least April 3, which is the weekend of the NCAA Tournament Final Four. 
  • In-state licensed sportsbooks prohibit those under the age of 21 from betting, offshore books accessible from the state allow those 18 and up.
