Gambling in Illinois

The gambling laws for the Prairie State are quite relaxed, but If you are a landlubber you might not enjoy the physical location of the casinos in Illinois -- the majority of them are riverboat casinos, although the chances of some of them actually sailing due to their size is doubtful.

The riverboats are run by some very familiar names in the casino world such as Harrah's and Churchill Downs. In these riverboat casinos, you will find a good mix of traditional table games such as roulette and blackjack mixed in with the hundreds of video slot machines. You will also find poker rooms, with the Harrah’s Joliet being able to boast that is home to a World Series of Poker-branded room. 

Illinois is also home to three racetracks: Arlington International Racecourse (also owned by Churchill Downs), Fairmount Park Racetrack and the oldest family-owned racetrack in America, Hawthorne Race Course, which has been operated by the Carey Family since 1909 (although the track was built in 1891).

However, if you are looking to place bets on the NBA, NHL, NFL, MLB, etc., you are going to be disappointed as there are no sportsbooks yet active in the state, but there are hopes that new legislation will be passed in 2019 that will allow Illinois residents to partake in this. In the meantime, you will have to make do with real-money DFS leagues or parimutuel horse race betting with selected authorized operators.
