On June 5, 2019, Governor J.B. Pritzker signed a bill to make sports betting legal in Illinois.

The legalization of sports betting in Virginia was part of a larger movement towards increasing gambling options in the state. In November 2018, citizens voted to legalize five land-based casinos. Currently, sports betting in Virginia is only available online, but that is expected to change in September 2021. The state expects to have five apps in the early stage. Once all of these sportsbooks are operational, it will be an exciting time for the state.
