FanDuel Sportsbook has received a temporary operating permit from the Illinois Gaming Board. That means Illinois residents can now sign up for a FanDuel Sportsbook account and begin betting when the site goes live.

As if the return of sports wasn't enough of an incentive, new users can get a $50 bonus when they sign up early via this promotion. The tentative launch date for FanDuel Sportsbook in Illinois is July 31.

New users must verify their identity when making an account, but once that hurdle is cleared, the bonus will go into effect on launch day.

Be sure to check back in with The Duel for all your sports betting and fantasy needs. We'll have you covered on everything as the MLB, NBA and NFL begin kicking off.

Sign up for FanDuel Sportsbook today and get your first bet risk free for up to $500!
