We graded North Carolina on its sports betting bill and experience relative to other states.

Overall NC Sports Betting Grade: TBD
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 NC 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.

Offerings: TBD

Mobile offerings often turn out different than in-person ones, so we’ll wait to grade North Carolina on this.

The Good: 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 Bad: Everything Else

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.
