With sports betting now legalized in the Land of Lincoln, those living in Illinois might want to capitalize on the phenomenon by starting their own online sportsbook. 

What I Need to Start My Own Online Sportsbook From Illinois

Starting your own online sportsbook from the state of Illinois is easy peasy but you'll need some help in doing so.

  • You will need at least five customers (active sports bettors).
  • You will need a top-of-the-line Pay Per Head to manage everything from live lines to 24-7 customer service to reporting.
  • Some marketing skills that should employ social media.
  • A lounge chair to go lay out on the lake since the Pay Per Head service pretty much allows you to operate on auto pilot.

Why Would Someone Want to Use Me Over a Draftkings or FanDuel?

  • Anonymity
  • Bookmakers typically extend credit
  • Limited danger in having your personal information sold or stolen
  • More avaliable betting options
  • Convenience
  • Payment options include crypto
  • 18 and up allowed

Why Illinois is Such a Lucrative Market for Bookies

  • Currently, Illinois regulated sportsbooks are prohibited from taking bets on in-state schools and games that feature them.
  • State teams such as the Fighting Illini, Wildcats and Ramblers have enjoyed success of late in college basketball.
  • While lawmakers are trying to push legislation that allows for bets on in-state teams, action can only be taken in-person had designated retail locations such as casinos and potentially arenas.  Mobile sites will be prohibited from doing so.
  • In-person registration is required to open an online sports betting account with a state regulated site at this time.
