Here is how to sign up for the current DraftKings bonus offer in IL:

  1. Visit either the DraftKings Sportsbook website or app.
  2. Register using the promo code 200BV1. You will need to verify your location and identity as part of the registration process.
  3. Make Your First Deposit and a $5 wager.
  4. DraftKings will load your account with $200 in free bets.

The total bonus amount on this offer makes it the best odds boost promotion currently available in Illinois. That being said, you shouldn't limit yourself to just one sportsbook.

Caesars Sportsbook Announces New Illinois Promo Code Offer

Caesars Sportsbook is located in Elgin, IL, about 45 minutes west of Chicago. For Illinois bettors that have not been able to make the trek out to register, the mobile registration restart offers you the opportunity to sign up with the Emperor of Sportsbooks.
