Super Bet: Sports Wagering Now Legal in Illinois
Whether you’re in it for the football, the commercials, or the food and friends, the coronavirus means Sunday’s Super Bowl will be different this year.
But something else about this year’s matchup is new. You don’t have to travel to Las Vegas to legally bet on it.
State Rep. Mike Zalewski helped to shepherd through the law that made it happen. He says it’s been a long time coming.
“This is the first time we’ll be able to do a legal sports bet on a Super Bowl,” he said.
Illinois passed the law legalizing sports betting in 2019.
