Based out of the United Kingdom, Betfred Sportsbook has steadily expanded its business across the United States over the past decade. Now, Betfred is one of the more prominent sports betting operators in the country, with licensing to operate in nine states.

The first sportsbooks in North Carolina rolled out on March 11, 2024. While Betfred was not among the first batch of operators in the state, HB 347 allows for up to 12 online sportsbooks to run in the state at any given time, so there is still an opportunity for Betfred to apply for a license in the Tar Heel State.

In this Betfred NC overview, we’ll go over all the important information North Carolina bettors should be aware of before joining the bookie once they are granted licensure, along with the potential welcome bonus they’ll extend to new users.

No, Betfred Sportsbook is not yet legal in North Carolina. When online sports betting in North Carolina went live in March 2024, Betfred hadn't yet been granted a license to operate in the state. There is still a chance for Betfred to get a license, and once it does, the online bookie could launch almost immediately.

What kind of promo will Betfred offer in NC?

Betfred’s most likely welcome bonus offer in NC would be a twofold promo that matches the offer in other states of operation.

The first part of their bonus is pretty straightforward. Users will earn $111 in Fred Bets after placing and settling a $50 cash wager. Qualifying wagers may not contain boosted odds wagers, futures bets, and any wager with odds longer than +300.

For the second leg of Betfred’s welcome offer, users can earn a 50 percent refund bonus on their net losses from the initial qualifying wager up to $200 per week over the following five weeks.

How can I register with Betfred in NC and claim the promo?

Although Betfred has not yet reached North Carolina, residents in the state could still sign up for Betfred ahead of time. However, this could disqualify them from NC's welcome bonus offer, so if you choose to do so, use your best discretion.

Here’s a look at all the steps you’ll need to take to sign-up for Betfred Sportsbook NC and claim their welcome offer.

  1. First, head to Betfred’s website or open their mobile application. Look to the upper right-hand corner of the tablet or desktop screen, and click the “Register” button.

  3. Next, you’ll need to add your email address, phone number, and password suitable for the account. On the next page, enter your full street address.
  4. You’ll then have the opportunity to use a promo code if you have one. However, this is optional; a promo code is not required to lock in the welcome bonus.
  5. Once the account is established, you’ll need to make a minimum deposit of $10. To claim the welcome offer, bet $50 or more on any event. Once the bet settles, you’ll earn $111 in Fred Bets immediately. Additionally, you’ll receive 50 percent back on your net losses from the qualifying wager over the next five weeks up to $200 a week.
