CHICAGO (AP) – The Illinois Department of Human Services has a new state website to help people affected by gambling addictions.
WeKnowtheFeeling.org is being launched as gambling is expanding across the nation. In Illinois, Gov. J.B. Pritzker is looking to expanded sports betting to help close a multibillion-dollar state budget hole. The Legislature would first have to legalize expanded wagering.
Illinois already operates a 24-hour hotline for people with gambling problems, 800-GAMBLER (426-2537).
