Illinois Gaming Board Seeks Public Comments On Sports Betting

The Illinois Gaming Board is seeking comments and inputs from the public over sports betting in the state. Illinois legalized sports betting operations and is in the process of framing sports gambling regulations.

The Gaming Board would be using the comments and inputs received from the public to frame the new regulations. As such, the authority is also welcoming and encouraging the public to participate and share their valuable comments and also express their doubts and concerns.

Former Winnebago County Board Member John Ekberg suggested this course of action at a meeting of concerned citizens in Rockford.

“We need to connect with our legislators, our county board members, our city council members,” he said. “I’m going to call my county board member and ask to be on the agenda for a little public comment section.”

Executive Director of Illinois Church Action on Alcohol and Addiction Problems Anita Bedell said: “Be careful what you wish for, because there are problems and concerns that have not been addressed and have not even been considered,” she said.

The comment period lasts until September 27th. The Gaming Board would then review the comments received and will create a Sports Wagering FAQ.

Earlier this week, the city of Waukegan has revealed the names of all six companies who have tendered their proposals to develop prospective Waukegan casino.

As part of the massive gambling expansion bill signed by gov. J.B Pritzker earlier this year, Illinois is poised to have six different casinos at Waukegan, Chicago, Rockford, Danville, Williamson County, and Cook county.
