DraftKings Sportsbook IL Review
Like its main rival, FanDuel, DraftKings built its brand reputation in the field of daily fantasy sports gaming and betting. Launched in 2012, its DFS service quickly acquired a large and loyal community of players, seeing it grow to become the largest provider in the U.S. market. With the opening up of the potential for legal U.S. online sports betting following a Supreme Court decision in 2016, DraftKings Illinois currently allows Illinois residents to get in on the action and is actively seeking licenses from other states to extend its service to U.S. bettors. An attempted merger with FanDuel was nixed in 2017 since it would create too dominant a company, however DraftKings has continued to extend its reach, now boasting over nine million players worldwide.

Layout & Usability
Like its arch-rival FanDuel, DraftKings IL would appear to have taken advantage of the lessons learned (and mistakes made) by online sportsbooks operating in the European market to create a site that is a real treat to use. The navigation is clean, modern and intuitive making it a cinch to find the offers you might want to take advantage of. The choice of sports is pretty darn good, with the current categories comprising baseball, basketball, boxing, cricket, darts, football, golf, hockey, MMA, motorsports and soccer.
Once registered to play (a simply process for any eligible customer) you’ll find a rich source of prop and live betting action to indulge, with a very intuitive method of bet placement and management from an integrated virtual betslip. It’s all state-of-the-art stuff when it comes to online sports betting site design, and makes for a very agreeable experience.
Naturally, a modern online sportsbook can’t ignore the importance of mobile users and DraftKings ensures its customers have the ultimate convenience of free native iOS and Android apps to bring its service within the touchy-feely universe of smartphones and tablets.

DraftKings Sportsbook offers an iOS app and an Android app but it’s just as easy to play on your Smartphone’s browser.

Providing you’re eligible to register for its service, DraftKings Sportsbook IL should definitely be on your shortlist of U.S. providers to check out. And if you’re resident in a state outside its present reach? Then we seriously endorse DraftKings’ campaign to ‘Take Action’ and suggest you lobby your state representatives to let you get in on the action here! It’s a shame to miss out on online sports betting when it’s as well presented and professionally curated as this.
