theScore secures Illinois market access with Caesars deal
| By Daniel O'Boyle
Canada-based betting operator theScore has agreed a deal with Caesars Entertainment that will allow it to access the Illinois online betting market through Harrah’s Joliet Hotel & Casino.
The operator will still need regulatory approval before launching, but expects to take bets from Illinois in the second half of 2021.
“Gaining market access to Illinois is a significant development that will bring our award-winning mobile sportsbook to one of the most populous states,” John Levy, chairman and chief executive of theScore, said.
“Caesars is a giant in the casino-entertainment industry and we’re thrilled to have reached this agreement to extend theScore Bet’s footprint into another key new market.”
