DraftKings was chosen as the Official Sports Betting and Daily Fantasy Partner of the MLB franchise, Chicago Cubs. Apparently, the agreement should be valid for a few years.

Therefore, the contract still provides for the creation of a different sports betting system to be placed at the team’s home in Wrigley Field.

The trend is that online access is available in the region. The betting system should offer a first class entertainment experience for sports enthusiasts in Illinois.

According to SBC Notícias, even if the bets are legal in the region, the creation of a retail model requires approval in the city of Chicago.
