Fanatics Betting and Gaming has announced the launch of the Fanatics Sportsbook in Ilinois, meaning it now has a presence in 19 states across the US. 

Sports fans in the Prairie State will now be able to download the Fanatics Sportsbook on iOS and Android, which includes a host of features. 

Some of these include the app itself being natively built on iOS and Android, the ability to give customers up to 5% of their wager back in FanCash, a discover page and a search functionality. 

This week, Fanatics completed the acquisition of the US businesses of PointsBet (which was originally announced last year); customers of PointsBet in Illinois will now have their username, password, account balance, rewards points and responsible gaming settings automatically migrated to the Fanatics Sportsbook. 

The operator also announced that, over the next few weeks, four PointsBet retail locations in Illinois will start to see upgrades including new signage, enhanced odds screens and brand-new self-service betting kiosks from SuzoHapp.  

Locations included for the upgrade work are Hawthorne Race Course in Cicero, Crazy Pour Sports Bar in Villa Park, Club Hawthorne in Crestwood and Players Pub & Grill in Prospect Heights. 

This news follows on from yesterday’s launch in Arizona as well as the finalisation of the acquisition of PointsBet’s US operations, but also comes shortly after the Connecticut Lottery (CLC) opened the Fanatics Betting and Gaming Sportsbook in the state at the end of March.
