When it comes to playing Daily Fantasy Sports in Illinois, only one name springs to mind, really – and it’s for good reason. FanDuel Fantasy are the pioneers of DFS in Illinois, and indeed the world, and have been honing their craft for more than 12 years.
Starting off, the FanDuel Fantasy interface is clean and familiar. From the very moment you enter the desktop site or app in IL, it’s easy to sign up and enter your lineup for the daily contests within minutes.
Led in Illinois by a Register for DFS, receive a free NBA Entry, there is a great incentive for IL players to get involved in 2023.
A user in Illinois can enter any number of daily contests across a variety of leagues for that day from within the user lobby. Players can filter their dashboard and sort the leagues, days of the event and also the buy-in of each contest. Contest buy-ins range anywhere from free contests, to up to $10,000.
Following a contest once your daily squad has been selected is easy enough in 2023, with leaderboards tracking all the action in real time. One criticism that we do have is that in certain contests where multiple entries are allowed by a single user, it can be easy for users with high bankrolls to manipulate the contests by creating multiple entries with slightly different variations of their team each time. If you’re a first-time player in Illinois, we suggest looking for contests that restrict the amount of time a user can enter or else it may discourage you from continuing to play in IL.
FanDuel is the No.1 option for Fantasy players across Illinois and should be your first port of call if you’re looking for an alternative to sports betting in IL, or are unable to bet because of your location in 2023.
