Is William Hill Illinois Worth Checking Out?
Yes. William Hill has been at this since 2018 when their inaugural launch occurred in New Jersey. Since then, they’ve refined their online platform and user interface.
While large competitors like DraftKings at Casino Queen Sportsbook and FanDuel Par-A-Dice Sportsbook are known nationwide from their days as daily fantasy giants with a great user experience, William Hill and BetRivers have worked hard to close the gap while gaining important name recognition.
In fact, William Hill went back to the drawing board in 2019 and came out with a new platform and branding strategy that made it a legitimate competitor with the aforementioned sportsbooks. The improved backend of their platform allowed William Hill to offer more impressive prop bets and markets.
The good news for William Hill is that they’re just one of five online sportsbooks available in the Prairie State, as opposed to other areas of the country where there are five or more apps to compete with.
How Long Do I Have to Sign Up?
That’s a tough question to answer. Governor J.B. Pritzker lifted an 18-month in-person sportsbook registration requirement on a temporary basis earlier this year as part of an Executive Order in response to COVID-19 relief. The requirement went back into effect again on July 31, but on August 21, Pritzker opted to suspend the in-person registration requirement through at least September 19. That means any bettors interested in getting in on the action will have roughly nine days to register online before the in-person sign-up requirement could go back into effect.
William Hill has impeccable timing as their launch comes just ahead of a Week 2 slate of NFL games.
The NFL represents a huge betting market for any sportsbook, as a high number of new activations for sportsbooks comes though, setting up the largest such period as bettors look to get in on the action.
The best part for sportsbooks like William Hill is the fact that bettors who sign up for Week 2 tend to bet throughout the season and even venture into betting on other sports that take place at different times throughout the year.
