Claiming DraftKings Illinois Promo Code Is Easy
There’s even more good news for prospective sports bettors in Illinois — mobile sports bettors in particular. Beginning Saturday, March 5, bettors will be able to complete mobile registration without setting foot in a retail sportsbook.
When Illinois launched online sports betting in the summer of 2020, bettors were able to begin registration for one of Illinois’ online sportsbooks via their mobile device. However, completing the process required bettors to make an in-person visit to the sportsbook’s physical location.
This extra step was inconvenient — if not outright problematic — for Illinois bettors. After all, in addition to the physical drive to a retail location, the world was in the thick of the COVID-19 pandemic. And, the DraftKings Sportsbook is downstate, a decent drive for Chicago residents.
Now bettors in the Prairie State can click through our DraftKings Sportsbook link, register, and claim the bonus from the comfort of their home by using their mobile device. The $100 free bet will show up on March 5, once the in-person registration requirement is lifted.
Perfect Timing For DraftKings Illinois Promo Code
The timing couldn’t be much better for Illinois sports bettors. The Bulls are rolling toward the postseason, the Blackhawks are still fighting for a spot in the playoffs, and college basketball is heating up.
The Big Ten tournament tips off March 9, and the field for the NCAA Basketball Tournament — aka March Madness — will be unveiled on Selection Sunday, March 13, with the action starting March 15. The men’s NCAA Tournament features 67 games, so new bettors will have ample opportunity to become invested in the action.
