Online sports betting in Illinois appeared far off in the distance before the pandemic began. The 18-month in-person signup period dampened enthusiasm in Chicago and beyond.

FanDuel and DraftKings appeared sidelined by an Illinois law designed to punish the former DFS giants for operating in the state in apparent violation of an attorney general opinion from 2015. Both companies needed to partner with an existing casino in the state or face a competitive online license process requiring a $20 million license fee.

Pritzker’s order stoked urgency among operators to expedite Illinois in their mobile sports betting plans. PointsBet prioritized Illinois even before the pandemic and also received its license last week. Now FanDuel and DraftKings look prepared to enter the market before the NFL season begins.
