There is no progress in Illinois in regards to sports betting regulations and there is no timetable for when it will come to the state.
US.- The gaming industry may be expanding in the state, but not as fast as many would want. That’s because Illinois has yet to make progress with sports betting regulations and it remains illegal.
The segment is expanding hastily across the country ever since PASPA is no more. However, there’s no timetable for when it will finally arrive in Illinois with the correspondent sports betting framework.
The approved bills got signed into law on June 28. However, the Illinois Gaming Board hasn’t come up with regulations yet.
“We’ve been told that applications should probably be available at the next board meeting,” said Tom Swoik, executive director of the Illinois Casino Gaming Association.
“The Joint Committee on Administrative Rules has not yet been sent rules regarding sports wagering by the Gaming Board. Once the Gaming Board sends their rules, JCAR will undergo the appropriate process for adoption,” State Sen. Sue Rezin said.
Sen. Rezin is a member of the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office and Joint Committee on Administrative Rules, which would give final approval to the sports betting regulations.
