William Hill Illinois Sportsbook: Online & Mobile App Launching Soon
Illinois is one of the “hot topic” states when it comes to legal sports betting in the US, as the state was open for business in terms of taking legal sports wagers in 2020. Given the particulars in the rules, Illinois has some restrictions for large-scale online sportsbook operators to enter the state in the short term. With that being said, there is no doubt the William Hill Sportsbook will exist in Illinois, it is just a matter of time. Let’s take a look at William Hill Sportsbook’s offerings, partnerships, potential promotions and more, as we prepare for the operator to enter the state of Illinois.

While William Hill is certainly not new to the partnership world given their deal with CBS, they have yet to secure a partnership in Illinois. This would be the first step to entering the state and offering legal sports betting to Illinois residents and visitors. Other William Hill partnerships include William Hill in Michigan, an agreement with the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians.
William Hill will need a partner to enter Illinois in 2020, but as seen with other sportsbooks, that could happen sooner rather than later.
William Hill Sportsbook App
While William Hill Sportsbook has been around for a long time, it will be new to most Illinois residents and visitors upon launch. The William Hill Sportsbook app is among the top-rated in the space, and is available for both iOS and Android users. While it is not as pleasing to the eye as DraftKings Sportsbook and FanDuel Sportsbook, the clean, simple look gets the job done for those looking to place a wager. Here is how to download the William Hill Sportsbook app in Illinois:
- Visit the iOS App Store
- Search “William Hill” to download the latest version of the app.
- Visit the William Hill Sportsbook website
- Download the app here, as the Google Play store does not allow for gambling apps of any kind.
- William Hill will recognize it is a mobile device, and you will be prompted to download the app.
