North Carolina’s online sports betting launch occurred on March 11, 2024, and things are already off to a strong start! DraftKings Sportsbook is positioned for success due to an early presence in the state through its DFS platform. Now, DK is poised to be among the major players in the state's gambling industry.

Here, we’ve detailed the features and traits DraftKings Sportsbook has brought to North Carolina and listed how to get signed up on the platform so you can begin making wagers today.

  1. Click the 'GET BONUS' button at the top of this page to go to the DraftKings website.

Is DraftKings Sportsbook live in North Carolina?

Yes, DraftKings Sportsbook is live in North Carolina. The state launched online sports betting on March 11, 2024.

While in-person sports gambling is also permitted, DK has not yet established a retail presence in the state. However, DraftKings is expected to apply for a retail license with the North Carolina Lottery Commission to expand the sportsbook offerings.

Additionally, North Carolinians can participate in DraftKings' daily fantasy sports (DFS) contests, provided they are at least 18 years old (you must be at least 21 years of age to gamble on sports in North Carolina).

The best features of DraftKings Sportsbook North Carolina

DraftKings Sportsbook is one of the premier sports betting platforms in North Carolina. Here are some of the best features that set it apart.

  • A multitude of same-game parlays: Often shortened to “SGPs,” DraftKings has a large assortment of daily pre-crafted same-game parlays you can find immediately when opening the app or browser window. You’ll also have the ability to create your own SGPs from a wide array of betting markets and matchups.
  • Excellent betting apps: Whether in the App Store or Google Play Store, Apple and Android users have both given high ratings and reviews of the DraftKings app. It is regularly one of the top two NC sports betting apps in each store and jockeys with FanDuel for the top spot. As of writing, the app holds a 4.6/5 star rating in the Google Play Store and a 4.8/5 star rating in the iOS App Store.
  • Betting markets for many sports and leagues: DraftKings offers betting opportunities for 17 sports: Aussie rules, baseball, basketball, boxing, cricket, cycling, e-sports, football, golf, hockey, lacrosse, MMA, motorsports, rugby league, rugby union, soccer, and tennis.

Different kinds of wagers on DraftKings Sportsbook

DraftKings Sportsbook offers many different kinds of wagers, ranging from the simple and straightforward to the complex and intricate, giving hardcore and casual bettors alike nearly free reign when crafting their bet slips. Here are some of the most popular options you’ll find on the platform.

  • Spread bets: Unlike a moneyline bet that simply involves picking a straight-up winner, a spread bet involves a wager on the margin of victory. A bet on the “favorite” to win will only pay out if that team wins by a margin set by DraftKings. For example, if the Carolina Panthers are 3.5-point favorites against the New Orleans Saints, Carolina must win by at least four points for a spread bet on the Panthers to pay out. Conversely, a bet on the underdog Saints would hit if New Orleans wins outright or loses by three points or fewer.
  • Totals bets: If two teams match up evenly to the point where it’s tough to pick a winner, playing a totals bet (also called an “over/under” bet) could be the wager to make. Totals bets are wagers on the combined point total scored between the two teams.
  • Prop bets: Shortened from “proposition bets,” prop bets are wagers on betting outcomes that may not directly impact the final score. These can include things like the first team to score a touchdown, how many assists the starting point guard gets, or a goaltender’s save total.
  • Parlays: Parlay bets are a great way to combine betting outcomes into a single wager for a chance at a lucrative win. Say you wanted to bet on the Panthers, the Carolina Hurricanes, and the Charlotte Hornets all to win on a given night. You could bet on each to win individually for a smaller payout or you could combine a bet on all three of them to win for a higher payout. However, if a single leg loses, your entire parlay bet counts as a loss.

Best sports you can bet on using DraftKings North Carolina

DraftKings North Carolina Sports

DraftKings offers 17 different sports for North Carolina gamblers to wager on. Here are some of the best sports you will be able to find on the site when making your bets.

  • Football: Whether you’re an avid NFL watcher, a college football junkie, or a CFL addict, DraftKings is one of the best spots to go for a football bet. Football bets will likely account for the largest portion of North Carolina’s total sports betting handle.
  • Basketball: College basketball is one of the most popular sports in North Carolina, and especially around March Madness, NC bettors will flock to DraftKings to place wagers on their favorite teams. There’s a good chance the college basketball betting handle in the state is even higher than the NBA handle, even with the shorter schedule.
  • NASCAR: There’s not another state that comes particularly close in NASCAR fandom as North Carolina. Whether you’re looking for Cup Series, Truck Series, or Xfinity Series race betting, you’ll be able to find them all on DraftKings’ platform.
  • Soccer: Charlotte FC fans can now back the local side in MLS markets, but DraftKings doesn’t stop there. The bookmaker accepts wagers for many of the top European leagues, international competitions, World Cup qualifiers, and more!

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.

  • Check: Check withdrawals may take a bit longer to access your winnings and there is a $15 minimum for this method (most options have a $1 minimum). If you do want a paper check, DraftKings will send it through USPS.
