  • North Carolina is set to go live with online sports betting on March 11, 2024
  • There will be many online sportsbooks vying for licenses before online betting goes live in the state
  • Where do you want to bet in North Carolina? We share our picks for the sportsbook apps we want to see in NC

We all know that online sports betting is coming to the Tar Heel State, but who are the major players ready to stake a claim? Which bigtime sportsbooks are ready to offer action to the bettors of North Carolina?

And more importantly: which of these North Carolina sports betting apps will be worth your time and money once the online betting scene is up and running?

With launch day set for just over two weeks from now, we’ve got six sportsbooks in mind that are ready to make a splash in North Carolina.

1. DraftKings North Carolina

One of the leaders of the online betting scene at large, the DraftKings app caters to new users and seasoned bettors alike.

The app is streamlined and easy-to-use as you navigate game lines for each sport, which is great because DraftKings offers odds on just about any sport and league you can think of.

With any luck, they’ll be offering one of their classic Bet/Get signup promos to new DraftKings North Carolina users. Having users bet a minimal amount to earn maximum bonus bets is a perfect way to earn the confidence of users during a state launch.

2. FanDuel North Carolina

With one of the best-looking apps on offer, FanDuel makes it easy to find upcoming and live events to bet on. Whether you’re reviewing the day’s lines or narrowing down the props you want to bet, the simple design of the FanDuel app is almost effortless to navigate.

And once you find the player props you’re looking for, you’ll see odds that look a little different than normal. Why are you getting odds at -112 instead of -115?

It’s because FanDuel typically reduces its juice, or “vigorish“, on its player props. Though the lower vig isn’t applied to every type of bet, you can’t complain about a sportsbook willing to give better prices for winning bets. FanDuel North Carolina users will fall in love with this app once it’s live.

3. BetMGM North Carolina

There’s a reason BetMGM is known as the “King of Sportsbooks.”

Whether it’s a Bet/Get promo that pays out instantly or First Bet Insurance that promises a return on a losing bet, BetMGM provides some of the best signup bonuses to new users.

On top of that, all BetMGM users can take advantage of daily giveaways, odds boosts, and profit boosts found on their app, before cashing in on some of the best live and futures lines in the industry. The BetMGM North Carolina is slated to become a top dog on the Tar Heel sports betting market.

4. ESPN BET North Carolina

The newest kid on the block isn’t your regular lightweight. With the backing of the Worldwide Leader in Sports, ESPN BET is the perfect merger of sports news with sports betting.

And that leads to one of the more intriguing features at ESPN BET, being able to bet with some of ESPN’s on-air personalities. It’s time to see if Stephen A. Smith actually knows what he’s talking about!

The important thing is to stay up-to-date on the latest promo code available. If there’s an ESPN BET North Carolina offer before launch day you’ll need the latest promo code, to guarantee you’ll earn as many bonuses bets as possible. Check back with SBD before launch day to confirm the newest ESPN BET promo code available.

5. Bet365 North Carolina

If you love betting single-game parlays, Bet365 will be the way to go. Not only can you build your own SGPs on just about any sport played around the world, Bet365 also offers odds boosts on numerous pre-built parlays.

That includes the NHL , if you think Sebastian Aho and the Hurricanes will continue to light up Metro Division opponents, or MLS, for when Charlotte FC play host Lionel Messi and Inter Miami in September.

The key is to check in daily at Bet365 North Carolina once live. They may not have one you like today, but Bet365 is consistently offering a plethora daily odds boosts, or the slightly rare Super Boost, that you can hammer like there’s no tomorrow.

6. Caesars Sportsbook North Carolina

Finally, it would behoove the empire that is Caesars Sportsbook to be ready to launch in North Carolina come March 11.

Already well-known across the continent, Caesars is a mainstay among online sportsbooks, pairing an easy-to-use app with bountiful betting options.

Whether its the Quick Pick parlays, boosted parlay odds on every major sport, or the availability of live game betting, Caesars lives up to its reputation of being a world-class sports betting site and Caesars Sportsbook North Carolina is unlikely to disappoint.

Early March 2024 Sports Schedule

The Tar Heel State could not have done a better job in selecting its online sports betting launch day, as North Carolina bettors will have a bevy of options after March 11.

With the NBA and NHL seasons in full swing, MLB and MLS returning for the summer, and the month-long captivation that is March Madness, there will be plenty for new bettors in NC to choose from:

  • March 11 – Charlotte Hornets vs Detroit Pistons
  • March 12-16 – ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament

With the wide variety of sports to watch in early spring, sports bettors in North Carolina can truly hit the ground running with some of the best sports betting apps in the world when launch day arrives on March 11.
