How North Carolina Sports Betting Compares
We graded North Carolina on its sports betting bill and experience relative to other states.
Overall NC Sports Betting Grade: TBD
North Carolina Sports Betting Grading Card:
Most sports bettors will not change their existing habits to bet legally. They will not drive any distance, let alone 200-plus miles, to bet. Still, we're waiting for more information to judge North Carolina in full. Therefore, a lack of online sports betting means North Carolina gets an F for its overall experience.
Mobile Betting Options: F
There’s no online sports betting in North Carolina. You can’t give it anything but an F.
Sign Up & Deposits: F
You can only bet in person, so there’s no online deposits or registrations. F.
Fair Pricing: TBD
Caesars owns and operates Harrah's, so its sports betting product will be integrated into each casino. While Caesars has fair pricing elsewhere, a monopoly is never a good thing.
The company says it has "flexibility to make adjustments for our region" in regards to odds, so expect local teams to be priced differently than normal.
Mobile offerings often turn out different than in-person ones, so we’ll wait to grade North Carolina on this.
Sports Betting Exists
The sheer existence of sports betting is more than half the states in the union can say. So that's a plus.
The Cherokee casinos are trying to create a monopoly for themselves around sports betting -- but it won't be a very lucrative one if betting remains in-person only.
