The state of Illinois has once again allowed remote registration, as opposed to only allowing in-person registration, for online sportsbooks like FanDuel.

Bettors can register on FanDuel here to be notified as soon as mobile and online betting is available, and the $50 site credit bonus will also give those bettors a nice chunk of change to get their betting started with.

This news comes just in time for the beginning of the NFL season, which sees the Chicago Bears sitting as 2.5-point underdogs against the Detroit Lions on FanDuel Sportsbook.
