The start of mobile sports betting in North Carolina is great not only because the wait is over, but because there are eight (seven new) options for in-state wagering. That also means that there is a lot to take in for new bettors, especially since this was a mobile launch. Remember, Caesars Sportsbook NC has been a partner with local tribal casinos.

North Carolina betting apps are the key to the success of each operator because fans across the Tar Heel State will want to be able to bet comfortably from wherever they are located in the state. A bad app experience could mean the loss of a customer.

The Game Day is saving you the trouble associated with learning about each betting app. Read on to get our breakdowns on the live North Carolina betting apps.

BetMGM North Carolina Betting App

The BetMGM North Carolina betting app may be the best available from day one. Navigation, functionality, and app responsiveness are elite for the “King of Sportsbook.” The app does a good job of presenting information, especially when building a bet in your betslip. BetMGM wisely added all user bonuses to the betslip section to allow users to easily access bonus funds, odds boosts tokens, and more.

BetMGM odds are competitive, which is why having easy access to bonuses for bets can bet the reason they are your top choice as a new player.

BetMGM NC has a partnership with the Charlotte Motor Speedway, which is a venue for racing events held by NASCAR and NHRA, as well as events for the great Charlotte community.

New players at BetMGM North Carolina get Bet $5, Get $150 in Bonus Bets. All you need to do is sign up, use bonus code LWOS, deposit $10+, and wager at least $5 with your first bet. If it loses, get $150 in Bonus Bets.

FanDuel North Carolina Betting App

Look for FanDuel to be a top option for NC bettors for a lot of the same reasons as BetMGM, but also because FanDuel has a long history of success in the Daily Fantasy Sports streets.

FanDuel North Carolina is going to be knee-deep in player props, as well as alternative line props. FanDuel is also a leader in Futures odds.

FanDuel NC is partnered with the PGA Tour and Carolina Panthers, so we can expect a number of options to choose from in golf and football betting, such as outright winners, head-to-head picks, game specials, and more.

New users at FanDuel North Carolina will get a Bet $5Get $250 offer. To get your bonus funds, register as a new user, deposit $10+, and bet at least $5 with your first wager. Win or lose, you get $200 in bonus bets to use as March Madness and other sporting events progress.

FanDuel NC also has pre-registration available. Register between Mar. 1-11 and get $100 in bonus bets when sports betting launches. Users that pre-register are also able to access the FanDuel NC welcome offer. No promo code is needed at any point.

bet365 North Carolina Betting App

If there is one thing that makes bet365 stand out as a betting app, it is the green/white/yellow color scheme that is known worldwide. No other app is as used internationally, and few can match the depth to which bet365 goes to offer markets for sports around the world.

This is an app that stands out from the competition with its promotions, which consistently put players in position to get value. bet365 also nails their user offers beyond registration, such as their Early Payout promotion.

bet365 North Carolina is partnered with the Charlotte Hornets. Hornets fans will be able to get an in-game experience to match the app, which means fun courtside, as well as on the couch.

New players at bet365 NC get a Bet $5Get $200 welcome bonus, where your first bet of $5+ gets you $200 in bonus bets. If that bonus is not for you, sign up and get their $1K First Bet Safety Net that insures your first wager of $5+, up to $1,000. Both offers require bonus code LWOSBONUS.

DraftKings North Carolina Betting App

DraftKings is a top option because of extensive betting markets, a user-friendly app, and promos running daily.

If you like Futures wagering, DraftKings is a top betting app because it isn’t just MVP, league championship, and similar markets. Look for bets on a player’s next team, when a prospect will get drafted, and more in that same niche market.

DraftKings North Carolina is partnered with NASCAR, which means an expectation of weekly boosts and promos for race day.

New players at DraftKings NC will unlock Bet $5Get $250 welcome bonus, where a $5+ first wager unlocks ten (10) $25 bet tokens, adding up to $250. Best part, there is no promo code needed.

Pre-registered players get $250 in bonus bets for Mar. 11’s launch day, and can also get the DraftKings North Carolina betting app offer above.

Fanatics Sportsbook North Carolina Betting App

This will be the first state launch for Fanatics Sportsbook without the PointsBet name attached anywhere. A few states have transitioned to Fanatics, but there is more to change once roots are set in the Tar Heel State.

The operator is partnered with the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Fanatics North Carolina offer is different than others because you need to bet over 10 days to maximize the bonus. Bet $100, Get up to $1,000 in bonuses is a great way to build a bankroll of bonuses. Each day that you bet $100, you will receive $100 in bet credits. This goes on for your first 10 days with Fanatics.

Note that if you miss one of the 10 consecutive days, you have forfeited the bonus for that day. You also do not have to bet $100 to get a bonus bet. If $10 each day is your limit, awesome! Just make sure to not skip a day to maximize the amount of bonuses you’ll receive.

This is a cool offer that helps Fanatics stand out from the competition. It will be interesting to see what they provide for pre-registration — perhaps we could see something that includes Fanatics merchandise.

Pre-registered players in NC get $100 in bonus bets, plus $60 in merchandise credit for Pre-reg users can also get the 10-day bonus offer starting Mar. 11.

Caesars Sportsbook North Carolina Betting App

Few names carry weight like Caesars Sportsbook. Their North Carolina betting app will be the second launch for them in the state due to a previous deal with local tribal casinos.

Caesars NC is partnered with the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, which have offered sports betting in North Carolina since 2019 at their two locations within the state. This partnership could help Caesars establish a stronger early presence in the NC market despite the pomp and circumstance of other operators.

New players at Caesars NC will get a Bet $10, Get $250 in Bonus Bets promo on launch day.

ESPN BET North Carolina Betting App

ESPN BET is the second operator participating in a state launch for the first time. Their arrival into the betting market came after PENN Gaming parted ways with Barstool Sportsbook in 2023. ESPN BET has been live in states with PENN Gaming since October 2023.

What’s great about ESPN BET is their favorable odds, where you can often find a nice line that stands out from the rest of the market. This is especially true for player props. Often, a player will have their alt line props available with their establish market line, which adds to a must-have for a North Carolina betting app: player-friendly navigation.

ESPN BET North Carolina has partnered with Quail Hollow Club, which is the venue for the Wells Fargo Championship of the PGA Tour.

The welcome bonus for new users at ESPN NC is $225 in bonuses just for placing a wager (it does not need to win). This comes with pre-registering and then hopping back on the ESPN BET North Carolina app on launch day. $25 will be awarded for pre-registration, and the remaining $200 will arrive when you place your first wager of at least $5 Mar. 11.

Underdog Sports North Carolina Betting App

The third and final rookie betting app is Underdog Sports. Best known for their daily pick ’em and best ball drafts, Underdog was granted a license to operate in NC and will do so while using their own betting technology.

A lot is unknown about their betting market approach since there are no visuals or beta to work with.

Expect a 100% deposit match up to $100, as well as potential bonuses.

Underdog NC is partnered with Sedgefield Country Club, which hosts the Wyndham Championship of the PGA Tour.

How To Choose North Carolina Betting Apps

There are a few factors to consider when choosing which sports betting app(s) to register with.


You want your betting app to have odds that align with the rest of the market. That means your top choices should have the same or similar lines as the rest of the operators, with the sportsbooks giving you the best odds as your strongest choice(s).


It’s best if your betting app has several markets for you to choose from, especially player props and alternate lines. This enhances the user experience, since you’ll have a chance to target numerous players, giving you more options at your disposal.


It’s essential for an online sportsbook to post their player props early. This gives you a chance to pounce on a favorable opening line, which could move quickly.

Majority of sports betting apps will have odds and props the night before a game, so then it comes down to what time they are posted. The earlier is obviously better to get the best odds.


There should be several promos available to enhance the value of your wagers. Odds boosts are great because you have more favorable prices on certain events.

This is where the top apps stand out. BetMGM and bet365 have always received high marks in this area. DraftKings and FanDuel also do a good job spreading the promo wealth across the sporting landscape.


This is similar to promos, but the difference here is that we’re discussing the welcome bonus, which is a one-time offer for new signups, as opposed to a recurring promo throughout the season.

It’s best if your betting app has a Bet & Get offer, since this rewards you with bet credits even if your first wager loses. While every welcome bonus is helpful, Bet & Gets are best because of the low barrier of entry ($5 first bet).

Bonuses also come in the form of boosted odds. A specific team/player/match may go from having to pay more to get a better payout, to paying less for a bigger payout thanks to boost tokens. Common boost amounts are 25% and 33%.


It’s best if the betting app not only provides quick payouts when you claim your winnings, but offers a number of options for both deposits and withdrawals.

This makes it a convenient process where you don’t need to worry about delayed payouts.


It’s important that your betting app has a user-friendly experience on mobile. Most of your wagers will likely be placed on your cell phone or tablet, so you want an app that functions at high speeds.

Some betting apps have technical issues, such as repeated prompts to verify your location. This becomes a nuisance where you have to log off and on a few times. You want to avoid this with your North Carolina betting apps.


The last factor to keep in mind is customer support. You want to have access to an agent at all times, preferably through a 24/7 live chat.

This makes it easy for you to resolve any potential issues. The good news is that most betting apps have this feature. It’s just whether or not they’re responsive.

North Carolina Betting Apps vs Online North Carolina Betting Sites

North Carolina betting apps are preferred over betting sites for the following reasons:


You can place your wager from the comfort of your personal device while on the go. This makes it much easier to quickly access your preferred bet. It’s important to act quickly to secure favorable odds since they’re always moving, which is why mobile betting is the better option.


Mobile apps run at a higher speed than the desktop version. This makes it simple to lock in your bet efficiently, since you don’t have to worry about slow processing times.


You can set push notifications from the betting app, which can inform you about the latest promotions, player injuries, and more. This is easier to access through your phone rather than your home computer.

User Experience

Especially for live betting, having convenient access in your pocket make it easier to take advantage of whatever is going on in the game(s) you are watching and sweating. Having your PC or laptop open and running on your lap while using the mouse pad is annoying and could cost you a favorable number.
