Jersey City-based sports betting operator BetMGM launched its mobile app in Illinois, the company announced March 7.

Illinoisans can now access BetMGM’s sports wagering platform, with a variety of betting options and access to earn experiences at MGM Resorts’ destinations across the country.

This is BetMGM‘s 22nd market.

“This launch marks a significant milestone for BetMGM as we enter one of the country’s biggest sports betting markets,” said CEO Adam Greenblatt in a prepared statement. “We look forward to working with the state of Illinois to bring its passionate sports fans a new, innovative and unique sports betting experience.”

The app allows users to customize pre-game, live in-play, futures and parlay wagers. Users can engage in BetMGM’s exclusive free-to-play contests surrounding popular sporting events and the One Game Parlay product where players can combine their wagers on a single game to earn even larger payouts.

BetMGM recently launched its loyalty program BetMGM Rewards, which allows customers to earn points with every wager placed that can then be redeemed for accommodations and experiences at MGM Resorts properties nationwide including Bellagio and MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Borgata in Atlantic City, MGM Grand Detroit, MGM Northfield Park in Ohio, MGM National Harbor in Maryland, and Beau Rivage in Mississippi.
