Rivers Casino in Des Plaines, Illinois made a cryptic post on Twitter today:
Based on how this process has gone, Rivers’ sportsbook could be coming soon in 2022 or next week. However, Governor J.B. Pritzker said legal sports betting will be in place by March Madness. Well, it’s March. The small conference tournaments are about to start tomorrow, and there is still no legal sports betting. According to friends and family who frequent Rivers on the weekends, the sportsbook at Rivers is basically functioning as a bar right now, but that could be changing “soon.” We will keep you posted as more information becomes available.
