DraftKings Illinois – Fresh Updates
It’s no great secret that the betting laws in Illinois have been a little tedious to this point. Previously, all sports punters had to travel to a physical casino and register for online betting. There have also been other geographical restrictions too. But recent events have indicated that this will all be changing, which means that the accessibility for the DraftKings Illinois site is also changing. On March 5th, you’ll be able to simply download the app and sign up directly. This is huge from an accessibility standpoint!
Just for clarification, this will be open to those who download the app on both iOS and Android. And you can install the app for either your smartphone or tablet.
DraftKings IL Sign Up Offer
This is perhaps the most exciting section of this quick look at the new DraftKings Illinois platform. Right now, DraftKings has an enticing pre-registration offer for all new customers. Basically, if you sign up with DraftKings prior to March 5th, you will be greeted with a $100 bonus to use for sports betting. Given that this is pre-registration only, this is completely separate from the main welcome bonus expected when the site launches. So if you are reading this in time, why not claim such an offer today?
Separate from the pre-registration bonus, there is an additional welcome bonus on the table. New players will be granted a first deposit bonus, in line with the DraftKings platform in other states. This bonus will work as a 20% first deposit match, with a maximum value of $1,000. Of course, this shows you’d need to deposit quite an amount to reap the full rewards. But the good news is that anything between $20 and $5,000 will qualify for the boost.
The registration process for DraftKings Illinois
Specifically, we are talking about the DraftKings mobile betting options here. So assuming you plan on signing up via your mobile device, there are a few important steps you must follow. These are detailed right here:
- Download the DraftKings app for Android/iOS
- Open the app and begin the sign-up process
- Enter a promo code, provide personal details, agree to T&Cs
- Sign in and process your first deposit (debit card recommend)
That’s pretty much it, and the whole process shouldn’t take much longer than five minutes. And since the DraftKings IL sign-up offer is purely dependent on the deposit value, you don’t even need to worry about making a qualifying wager. One thing we will say, however, is that you should make sure that the first deposit is made with a debit card.
Although the official terms and conditions are not yet released, this is a common theme with DraftKings in other states. So it’s obviously better to play it safe!
Expected sports betting options
Looking at betting sites in other states in the US, DraftKings is a major player. In almost all states where they operate, they are regarded as one of the most diverse sportsbooks out there. So naturally, the DraftKings IL site will follow suit. For that reason, the main betting options will be focused on top leagues such as the MLB, NBA, or NFL. But DraftKings is a bookmaker that appeals to a wider audience too, with markets for sports like boxing, rugby, MMA, soccer, and so much more.

Once again, the exact offerings will only be known once DraftKings launches with the full sportsbook in Illinois. But with this launch being quite literally around the corner, we won’t need to wait too long to see the exact offerings!
