“North Carolina took a major step toward legalized “North Carolina sports betting” when Governor Roy Cooper signed Senate Bill 688 into law in July 2022. The legislation lays the framework for the launch of up to 15 mobile “North Carolina sports betting apps” tied to professional sports teams and venues across the state.

As “North Carolina sports betting” moves toward an expected launch before March Madness 2023, several additional sportsbook operators have expressed interest by requesting applications, including SuperBook, Betway, and TitanBet. These global brands likely see the potential of North Carolina’s market, though their entrance is not guaranteed as they weigh factors like startup costs versus revenue potential.

The “North Carolina sports betting” license application list already features some heavy hitters, headlined by DraftKings, FanDuel, and BetMGM. These dominant players typically command 80-90% market share where allowed to operate, given their brand recognition and generous “North Carolina betting promos” like DraftKings’ $150 free bet offer with the “DraftKings North Carolina promo code.

Smaller players like ESPN Bet, Fanatics Sportsbook, and bet365 have also applied for North Carolina licenses. Though unable to match the market share of the top brands, these operators can still find audiences by expanding to new states like North Carolina.

The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and Catawba Two Kings Casino have also secured license eligibility as tribal casinos authorized to offer sports betting. An online presence would help drive customer acquisition and cross-promotion for their brick-and-mortar gaming venues.

Gov. Cooper and state lawmakers have pushed to launch “North Carolina sports betting” before March Madness 2023 to capitalize on a high-interest sports calendar. And with popular brands like DraftKings poised to make a sports betting splash with alluring “North Carolina betting promos,” the state appears on track to meet that target deadlines pending license approvals.”
