Accel Entertainment is taking a new step forward and boldly entering the emerging world of sports betting in Illinois. In the summer of 2019, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker legalized sports betting when he signed the new Sports Wagering Act. Accel Entertainment is happy to announce the launch of our new sports betting platform AE.Bet!
AE.Bet is a free-to-play website where players can create accounts and make a series of picks on upcoming sporting events with the possibility to win big cash prizes! Did we mention the best part? It’s totally free to enter!
Every week, Accel Entertainment is posting new and exciting games to AE.Bet for players to make their picks on – including the biggest games in football, UFC, hockey, and more! Cash prizes are awarded every Monday to those lucky individuals who win. Players can see the upcoming games and prizes on our social media pages or featured on TV monitors in certain Accel Entertainment locations around the state.
Accel Entertainment is proud to offer a new and intuitive free-to-play sports betting platform to our players. As with everything we do, we strive to provide the best possible experience for our slot players. Want to learn what sets an Accel Entertainment location apart from the rest?
