Caesars Sportsbook Illinois: The basics
Illinois has had sports betting for quite a while, but the state has opened up to more sportsbooks just this week and now allows bettors to sign up from anywhere in the state rather than visiting a physical casino.
Those new betting apps include Caesars, which has become one of the best-known sports betting brands in the country in the wake of a recent ad blitz and a commercial during the Super Bowl.
You have a number of options for Illinois sportsbooks, but the $1,100 offer from Caesars is one of the best in terms of pure dollar amounts if you are looking to try an app. You can use the Caesars Sportsbook promo code LEGALCZR in order to claim the offer.
