Close to Rockford is a place you can put bets down on sports.

The pandemic has had an effect on lots of things. For example, sports gambling is now legal in Illinois but the process has been slowed by COVID-19. Sportbook facilities have been popping up at a snail's pace. At this point, we only have three in the whole state.

According to,

"Grand Victoria Casino in Elgin opened its new sportsbook this week, becoming the third casino in the state to offer bets on sports since it was legalized last year."

I'm sure with the major pro leagues starting back up, more will be coming soon.

As we wait patiently for our casino to open in Rockford, this is not a bad option if you enjoy placing wagers on games.
