North Carolina Sports Betting Won't Be Live by Super Bowl 2024

Disappointing news for North Carolina sports betting as the state will not have online betting available for the Super Bowl on February 2024. Here are the latest details on betting in the state as it plans to launch in 2024.

No North Carolina Sports Betting For Super Bowl LVIII

The state of North Carolina will not have sports betting off the ground by February 11, 2024. This is the date for Super Bowl LVIII. Last month, the North Carolina Lottery Commission announced sports betting wouldn't be going live on January 8, 2024. That was the first available date for online betting after the law passed in June 2023. The state has until June 15, 2024, to get started.

Sportsbooks Can Apply by December 27

North Carolina is now starting to collect applications from sportsbook operators. Applications can be submitted for a sports betting license by December 27. The state will then use a 60-day window to give an operator approval. The committee is also allowing for a 30-day extension.

Any sportsbook that plans on going live on the first day of online betting will need to work quickly to get their application together by the end of the month.

Still No Official Start Date for NC Sports Betting

As the state continues to make a push towards going live, bettors have to wait for an official launch date. North Carolina could be tracking for a March launch to coincide with March Madness. This happened earlier in 2023 in the state of Massachusetts which launched on March 10. It's still unclear when the state will get the state live and online.

bet365 Sportsbook Scores First Partnership

bet365 Sportsbook got an early start and was the first sportsbook to form a partnership with a professional sports team in the state. In November, the sportsbook operator teamed up with the Charlotte Hornets. They are just the first of likely many major sportsbooks to join the state. Bettors can expect partnerships from top brands like BetMGM, FanDuel, DraftKings, and more.
