The site, which is renowned for its “PointsBetting” innovation, will bring its exciting form of sports betting to another state, as it continues to expand across the country.

“The PointsBet team is excited to share that we are now officially live in Illinois, our fourth state of operation in the US,” Johnny Aitken, PointsBet USA CEO, said. “The passionate sports fans in the state can now experience our leading online sports betting product and see for themselves why we’ve long stated that the best product experience will win. PointsBet possesses competitive advantages by owning our technology environment from end to end, such as unrivaled speed and ease of use on a personalized platform.” 

The PointsBet Illinois site will offer the best price in the market for all Chicago Bears games this season across both the pregame spread line and moneyline bet types, according to Aitken. Additionally, PointsBet will unveil their innovative “Crowd Booster” promotion for sports bettors in the state of Illinois for the Chicago Bears’ first three games of the 2020 NFL season. The Bears spread will be boosted five points for every 200 bets placed, which could prove to be a huge deal for home state fans.

PointsBet is partnering with Hawthorne Race Track, and will have OTB sites in Prospect Heights, Oakbrook Terrace, and Crestwood.

Former Bears wide receiver/kick return specialist Devin Hester has partnered with the site as well, and has a opening weekend Super Boost: +100 for there to be a kick return TD in any of the 13 Sunday NFL games. 

“With the technology that these guys have, it just makes things so easy and fast,” Hester said. “And that’s why I partnered up with PointsBet, just thinking about myself being fast, and then coming in and joining with these guys, it just makes life so easy when you want to get in bets.”
