First North Carolina Sports Betting App Download Information Released

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Mobile sports betting in North Carolina officially became legal at noon on Monday, March 11 and hundreds of thousands of North Carolinians have already started their sports betting journey.

According to Geo Comply, over 5 million geolocation checks were made in North Carolina on launch day and over 370,000 active sports betting accounts are located in the state.

Over 10 million people live in North Carolina, so the 370K number represents less than 5% of the total population. But remember, those numbers were just from the first day of launch, so it will only grow from here.

North Carolina has a lot of different options when it comes to betting legally in the state. FanDuel, DraftKings and BetMGM are my personal favorites.

They have good user interfaces, which makes it easy to find the bet you want to make, good promo offers, competitive odds and are trusted nationwide.

My personal favorite is FanDuel and if you are in North Carolina you can secure $250 in bonus bets right now, which is the best offer I've seen in years. All you have to do is click this link and sign up for FanDuel, deposit $10 or more into your account and bet $5 or more on any wager and you get $250 in bonus bets from FanDuel.

It's smart to download other sportsbooks to compare odds and maximize the total bonus bets you can collect. Here are the three best promo offers in my opinion.

Is Sports Betting Legal in NC?

Yes, sports betting is legal in North Carolina and is overseen by the North Carolina State Lottery Commission. It officially became legal to bet in the state on Monday, March 11.

What is Sports Betting?

Sports betting presents the opportunity for you to bet on the outcome of a game, player performance or other markets offered by the individual sportsbooks.

An example is: If North Carolina is playing Duke and UNC is a -120 favorite to win the game, if you bet $24 on UNC to win and they do, you win $20.

What is a moneyline bet?

The bet, in this example, is what sports bettors call a moneyline bet. In a moneyline bet, you're betting on who will win the game outright.

What is a spread bet?

Spread bets are based on a handicap number the sportsbook creates. Using the same example, if UNC is a -1.5 point favorite to beat Duke and you bet on UNC -1.5, you need UNC to beat Duke by 2 or more points to win your bet.

Sports betting will only continue to grow in the state as time passes. It's happened in every previous state and will continue in the Tar Heel state.
