ESPN BET gives Illinois bettors $250 sign-up bonus
Illinois is one of the lucky states with immediate access to ESPN BET. As a result, eligible IL bettors can build their bankrolls with $250 in bonus bets.
ESPN BET’s launch-day offer will cause a seismic shift in the sports betting market. Not only do new Illinois customers get $250 in bonus bets, but they can bet anything to receive the payout. Bet $50, $5 or $1 — ESPN BET will credit your account with $250 in bonus bets and many chances to score cold, hard cash this fall.
There is a small but significant caveat to this deal. ESPN BET requires a literal promo code to obtain the offer. That’s why Illinois bettors must enter the promo code AJC. Without it, your first bet will be like any other and leave you without a $250 bonus.
How to activate ESPN BET Illinois promo code AJC
Illinoisians familiar with other popular sportsbooks like DraftKings and FanDuel should expect the same level of quality from ESPN BET. Enjoy competitive odds, exclusive promotions and more with $250 in bonus bets, available exclusively through our promo code.
