Official betting is an emerging sport that is expected to grow in the U.S. thanks to the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize sports betting in many states. For fans of the sport, official betting can provide them with an unmatched level of experience and convenience. Whether they prefer live in-person betting, mobile betting or online betting, bettors can find their favorite team in their state.

In August 2020, DraftKings will take the first bets in Illinois. It will also become the first official sportsbook operator for the PGA TOUR. The partnership will allow for in-game promotions, in-broadcast odds generation, and rights to advertise on the TOUR’s platforms. Moreover, it will give DraftKings the opportunity to gain access to the league’s data and trademarks.

With the expansion of sports betting in Illinois, fans can expect to bet on their favorite teams and teams from around the world. There are 15 licensed and regulated online sportsbooks available in the state. They are all regulated by the Michigan Gaming Control Board, which ensures that games are fair and secure. Additionally, licensed gambling operators offer bettors resources and support services. Those in need of assistance should contact the National Council on Problem Gambling or the American Addiction Centers.

While in-person and mobile betting have been available in some states, there are still several limitations. The Illinois law prohibits wagering on non-athletic events, such as high school and college sports, and only permits wagering on sports competitions involving the NBA, NFL and NCAA. New York sports bettors can claim risk-free bet offers from their mobile sportsbook. If the NY Jets and NY Giants are to face off, the Jets must win by more than two points.

BetMGM has a variety of sportsbook partnerships with popular sports teams and leagues. The company has been an official partner of the Knicks since November 2021. Meanwhile, the Nets have a daily fantasy sports partnership with FanDuel. Both partnerships offer plenty of bonuses and promos, including second chance bets, odds boosts and other promotions.

While many fans love to wager on sports, the NFL is one of the few American sports leagues that hasn’t signed an official betting deal. Fans can place bets on any of the league’s teams, but they’re not allowed to market their relationship with the NFL outside of their local radius.

However, with the passage of the new law, fans in Illinois can now sign up for a mobile betting site. This means that bettors can place bets on their favorite teams, and wager on future games. Once the market is fully open, consumers will have access to official data from their favorite leagues, including the NFL. Licensed and regulated apps provide better security and accountability than illegal offshore sites. Plus, bettors can receive a risk-free bet deal and deposit match offers.

After the first year of operation, sportsbooks will continue to have an incentive to keep up with the changing regulations. Because of this, they’ll be able to offer exclusive promotions and betting bonuses for their clients.
