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.
Is FanDuel Sportsbook legal in North Carolina?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
