Illinois Bets Big on “Big Game”

(Chicago, IL)  Illinois is still relatively new to the sports gambling world, but the state did well when it came to the “big game.” The Illinois Gaming Board said gamblers wagered nearly $61 million on Sunday’s Super Bowl, a 33% increase from last year…which was the first year legal wagering was allowed in the state. Sportsbooks were said to collect over 9.5-million of that. Nevada saw the biggest amount of “on the record” gambling, with over 180-million dollars in bets.
