Dave Portnoy and his colorful band of sports media personalities are now live in the Prairie State, and they’ve brought the Barstool Sportsbook along with them.

Despite originally opening in March 2021, Barstool Sportsbook and other top-tier online sportsbooks such as Caesars Sportsbook, DraftKings Sportsbook, and FanDuel Sportsbook have been relegated to in-person registration in Illinois. That requirement ended on March 5, 2022.

Thanks to a strong partnership with Penn National Gaming—that has a 36% stake in Barstool Sports—the Barstool brand already operates a retail sportsbook at Hollywood Casino Aurora.

Once the in-person registration requirement is officially lifted, Barstool Sportsbook Illinois will have a fully online sports betting experience with no need to sign up in person.
