Members of Public Sound Off on Illinois Sports Betting

(October 7, 2019) - Illinois residents have commented on the future of legalized sports wagering in the state.  The process has stalled after seemingly being thrust through the legislative process out of thin air.

Illinois sports betting still looks to be among the most aggressive introductions since the US Supreme Court reversed decades of prohibition last year.  Lawmakers promised kiosks outside of stadiums, mobile betting from anywhere in the state, and a casino somewhere in Downtown Chicago.  In return, Illinois residents will now be paying some of the highest gas prices in the nation.

People aren't just sounding off about the delays.

“I’m disgusted that sports gambling, a long-time activity that was profitable for the mob, is now legalized,” one woman wrote the board. “So, please have strict rules to prevent underage gambling, to limit or prohibit advertising, to address availability at all hours on mobile devices, and to prevent money laundering.”

Lady, this is Illinios, keep dreaming.
