BetMGM Illinois will match new customers’ deposit with a risk-free bet up to $1,000. This means the amount of the wager is not deducted from your account when it is placed. Should your risk-free bet hit, your account will be credited with the amount of the win.

The Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament is being held at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. Illinois is the defending Big Ten champion. The Fighting Illini defeated Ohio State in an OT thriller, 91-88, in last year’s championship game.
Illinois College Sports Betting Rules
One important note for Illinois bettors: Betting on in-state college teams is allowed in Illinois, but it must be done in person and not online.
That means if you’re in Illinois, you won’t find odds on the state’s teams on sports betting apps, whether those are futures or lines on single games.
