Online sports betting is nearing its launch in North Carolina. While in-person sports betting has been legal in the state since 2021, the practice has been largely inaccessible for most of the state given the geographic locations of the three casinos that accept wagers. FanDuel is likely to be one of the first North Carolina sportsbook platforms that will open its doors to bettors when online sports betting launches in the state. Here, we’ll review FanDuel Sportsbook and discuss what North Carolinians can expect when registering with the bookmaker.

No, FanDuel Sportsbook is not legal in North Carolina, as online sports betting in NC has not yet launched. However, prior to the anticipated launch in early 2024, FanDuel is likely to apply for licensure with the North Carolina Lottery Commission. The bookmaker is already permitted to operate its daily fantasy sports (DFS) platform in NC, so obtaining licensure and securing market share on the back of brand recognition should make things easier.

Joining FanDuel in North Carolina and claiming the promo

Once online sports betting arrives in the state, joining FanDuel in North Carolina and claiming the promo shouldn’t take you more than 10 minutes. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

  1. Create an account: The first thing you’ll need to do is create an account. To do this, you’ll need to enter your email address, come up with a username, and decide on a password. The password must be at least eight characters including at least one letter and at least one number.
  2. Input your personal information: Next, you’ll need to key in some personal information – your legal first and last name, the last four digits of your Social Security number, your birth date, your phone number (for two-factor authentication), and your street address. This info will be used to verify your identity and confirm you are eligible to bet in North Carolina. FanDuel uses top-notch security standards to keep this data protected at all times.
  3. Agree to the terms and conditions of service: Thirdly, agreeing to the terms of service is required to complete the registration process. You’ll also need to check a box that confirms your profession does not prohibit you from betting in North Carolina.
  4. Make a deposit: The final step to claiming the bonus is to make a deposit and place your first bet. FanDuel has a $5 minimum for all deposits, and the bonus is a second-chance bet of up to $1,000 if your first wager doesn’t win.

Which bonus will FanDuel offer when they go live?

When FanDuel goes live in North Carolina, they will likely offer a $200 in bonus bets for new players. This bonus will only take effect if your first bet doesn’t win, and it will be a dollar-for-dollar match in the amount of your initial wager.

There may also be sportsbook promos exclusive to North Carolinians, so be on the lookout for those as well. Once FanDuel announces what bonuses will be available leading up to the launch, we will update this page with any promo code details, as well as the terms and conditions of the offer.

Fixing problems if the FanDuel North Carolina bonus is not working

If the FanDuel North Carolina bonus is not working, there are a few steps you can take to try fixing the problems on your own. The simplest step is logging out of your account, then logging in again. Sometimes, this is enough to trip a reset. If that doesn’t work, closing the browser or app, then restarting the device, could clear things up. However, should you still be stuck after that, you’ll need to get in touch with FanDuel customer support (instructions below).

Common terms and conditions for the FanDuel bonus in other states

Based on what we know about the FanDuel bonus in other states, here are some of the common terms and conditions you can expect when the promo offer comes to North Carolina.

  • Bettors must be at least 21 years of age to use the bonus.
  • Using early cashout on your wager will nullify the second chance credit.
  • The welcome offer is limited to one entry per person.
  • Second chance credits will be awarded within 72 hours of the initial wager settling as a loss.
  • If you have multiple selections on a bet slip, the first qualified wager on the slip is the one that will apply for the bonus.
  • If you received a different sign-up bonus offer, only one bonus will apply.

Where will I be able to find the newest FanDuel promotions?

You will be able to find the newest FanDuel promotions in a few different places. If you’re looking at the site in a web browser, the sportsbook will have a “Promos” tab listed on the left side of the screen. Similarly, if you prefer the app, you can tap the “Promos” button in the header when you open the app. Finally, you can check in with BettingNC.com, where we will list all the latest and greatest promotions and bonuses, as well as their simplified terms and conditions.

How long will it take for my FanDuel promo to be credited?

The FanDuel promo will be credited to your account within 72 hours of your first bet settling as a loss. The credits will be of equal value to the first bet you place, so taking full advantage of this offer will require a larger upfront payment. If you don’t see the bonus appear after that time period, you’ll need to get in touch with FanDuel customer support or try the steps above to fix the issue.

Different sports you will be able to bet on at FanDuel NC

FanDuel offers one of the more expansive sports lists you’ll find on betting platforms. With 16 sports to choose from and multiple leagues available within those sports, you’re sure to be able to find something to sate your betting appetite. Here are some of the top sports you’ll be able to bet on.

  • Football: The NFL is the most dominant league when it comes to sports betting revenue in the U.S., but with college football betting on the rise, you’ll be able to partake in both. North Carolina allows for betting on collegiate athletics, including for in-state schools.
  • Basketball: If there’s a sport that can rival football in North Carolina betting markets, basketball certainly has the best chance. Whether it’s looking to the college ranks for blue blood programs like Duke or UNC or turning to the NBA for the Charlotte Hornets, there are plenty of options to choose from in the Tar Heel State.
  • Hockey: While North Carolina may not seem like a traditional hockey market, the Carolina Hurricanes have made the state one of the NHL’s premier hockey destinations. With a Stanley Cup win in 2006, three consecutive division titles from 2021-23, and two President’s Trophy titles to their credit, the Canes have emerged as a perennial Eastern Conference power.
  • NASCAR: Multiple studies have shown North Carolina to be the most NASCAR-obsessed state and for good reason. With the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, as well as iconic race tracks like Charlotte Motor Speedway and North Wilkesboro Speedway, you’ll be able to wager on the Cup Series events, Xfinity Series, individual race props, and more!

Types of bonuses offered at FanDuel Sportsbook

FanDuel has frequent and generous promo offerings to attract new players and keep returning users placing wagers at the book. Here are some of the best types of bonuses offered at FanDuel Sportsbook:

  • Second chance bets: FanDuel’s current offer is a perfect example of a second chance bet. If your first bet loses, the North Carolina sportsbook will award bet credit in the amount of your initial wager to give you another try to land a winner. This is a very common type of welcome bonus.
  • Deposit matches: When placing funds into your account, FanDuel may have a deposit match promotion that gives you bet credit in proportion to the amount of your deposit. Usually, this is a 100% match.
  • Odds boosts: FanDuel will post lines each day with boosted odds that can lead to higher payouts. Usually, this boost ranges from +25 to +100 for a given market. However, we’ve also seen some boosts that hit +250 or higher.
  • Profit boosts: Depending on the time of year in the sports calendar, FanDuel will offer “Profit Boost Tokens,” which can add a 25% boosted payout (or more, in rare cases) to your payout. Usually, these promos cap your stake at $100, but depending on the odds, these bonuses can still lead to considerable payouts.
