The sportsbook is slated to open September 4, a day ahead of the NFL kickoff.

Both Indiana and Illinois have legalized sports wagering in the wake of a May 2018 decision by the US Supreme Court to overturn decades of prohibition.

From the Chicago Sun Times:

Branded as “The Book,” Horseshoe’s 5,300-square-foot wagering shop will be housed on the casino’s main floor, complete with six betting counters, lounge chairs, couches and more than a dozen 85-inch LED televisions beaming in sports from across the country and world.

“This is a huge opportunity for us and for Indiana,” said Dan Nita, regional president of Caesars Entertainment, the corporate casino giant that owns Horseshoe. “We’ve worked really hard to get this ready, and we’re excited to share it with fans on both sides of the state border who have wanted this for a long time.”

Unlike the Indiana law, which required regulators to have sports-betting procedures in place by Sept. 1, Illinois may not have sports betting in place until after the Super Bowl.
