North Carolina’s sports betting launch is scheduled for early 2024, and DraftKings Sportsbook is already positioned for success once the state launches online sports betting. With an existing presence in the state through its DFS platform, the bookmaker is poised to be among the major players in the industry early on.
Here, we’ve detailed the features and traits DraftKings Sportsbook will bring to North Carolina and listed how to get signed up on the platform so you’ll be ready for the launch.
Is DraftKings Sportsbook live in North Carolina?
No, DraftKings Sportsbook is not live in North Carolina. The state has not yet launched online sports betting, and in-person sports gambling is only permitted at three tribal casinos in the state. However, DraftKings is expected to apply for a sports gambling operator license with the North Carolina Lottery Commission to be ready for the online betting launch in early 2024.
Additionally, while the sportsbook is not yet legal, North Carolinians are still permitted to participate in DFS contests, provided they are at least 18 years old.
You’ll be pleasantly surprised by how quick and easy it will be to register at DraftKings in North Carolina and claim the promo. Most users will be signed up and ready to place wagers in about five minutes. Here’s how to get started.
It’s important to understand that registering for the DFS platform and registering for the sportsbook are two different processes, and signing up for one won’t sign you up for the other. You also won’t need to set up a DFS account to use the sportsbook or vice versa.
The best features of DraftKings Sportsbook North Carolina
DraftKings Sportsbook will be one of the premier sports betting platforms in North Carolina once it obtains licensure and goes live in the state. Here are some of the best features that will set it apart.
What type of welcome offer will DraftKings offer when they go live?
DraftKings’ active welcome offer awards players $200 in bonus bets following a $5 wager. However, the sportsbook may have a different, unique offer available for North Carolina players when it arrives in the state and online sports betting launches. Whatever way DraftKings sets the offer up, we’ll update this page once the bonus specifics are available.
Assuming the bookmaker maintains its offer of $200 in bonus bets following a $5 wager, the DraftKings promo would come to your account immediately after you place your qualifying bet, though you may need to allow up to 72 hours for the bets to show up.
This also means your bonus funds may be accessible even before your initial wager settles.
Conditions for the DraftKings bonus in other states
Based on what we know about the DraftKings bonus in other states, we can anticipate the following terms and conditions will apply to the offer in North Carolina:
What do I do if the DraftKings North Carolina bonus is not working?
If the DraftKings North Carolina betting bonus is not working, there are a few things you can do to try to fix things before contacting the customer support team. First, make sure that the wager you placed was eligible under the terms of the offer and that at least 72 hours have passed since placing the wager. Sometimes, the sportsbook takes a bit longer to verify the bet, and that you’ve created a new account, so the timing is relevant here.
Next, try logging out of your account, then sign in again. You can also restart the app or web browser and the device you’re using to access the platform. If all of the above doesn’t resolve the problem, you’ll need to reach out to DraftKings customer service (information on how to get in touch with them is listed below).

The rules and laws for daily fantasy sports at DraftKings North Carolina
Daily fantasy sports (often shortened to DFS) contests have been a contentious part of sports betting legislation in many states. While most states have considered DFS events to be skill-based and not luck-based and are therefore permissible, others have ruled against this mindset, in some cases passing laws to outright ban DFS games.
North Carolina has not passed a law that either affirms the legality of DFS contests or prohibits North Carolinians from participating in them. DraftKings currently allows North Carolina players to take part in daily fantasy sports.

Just be sure to wait to create an account so you don’t disqualify yourself from eligibility for a welcome bonus.
