Get ready, North Carolina. BetMGM Sportsbook will be one of eight North Carolina sports betting apps to go live in the Tar Heel State when online sports betting launches on March 11.

You'll be eligible for a new-user offer once pre-registration goes live next month. Right now, North Carolina bettors are not able to wager or deposit, but we're less than a month away from the action kicking off at the perfect time of year. BetMGM NC will launch one day before the 2024 ACC Tournament, and six days before Selection Sunday.

Why BetMGM?

Why should you add BetMGM to your sports betting arsenal when legal online betting goes live in North Carolina? Let's dive in.

Available markets and price shopping: Many sportsbooks rely on the same few odds providers to price their lines. That's why you'll see many books with the same price on an obscure prop, and you may wonder how they both arrived at the number. It's because they're getting it from the same place.

BetMGM has most of its oddsmaking in-house, meaning they don't blindly follow the other books in many cases. This doesn't mean their prices are necessarily better or worse — but if you're playing at multiple books and trying to find the best price, you can sometimes get it at BetMGM because they won't blindly copy what's out there.

State availability: If you're outside North Carolina, you'll still want to have access to your sportsbooks. That's not possible in all states, but BetMGM has one of the widest footprints of any U.S. book. It's available in: AZ, CO, DC, IN, IA, IL, KS, KY, LA, MA, MD, MI, NJ, NV, NY, OH, PA, TN, VA, WV and WY. It's one of the few books available in Nevada and other legal sports betting states, and now uses the same platform/wallet in Nevada as other states.

Strong pricing on MLB and college football, in particular: BetMGM in our testing graded out incredibly well on average moneyline pricing for college football and MLB, with the lowest hold percentage across major U.S. sportsbooks on those two sports.
