Before 2024 rolls around, make sure you know all there is to know about FanDuel Sportsbook, by checking out our FanDuel review page before checking out all the information we have on the FanDuel North Carolina launch below.

FanDuel North Carolina

FanDuel Sportsbook is currently legal in 20 states in the U.S. with North Carolina set to become the next to legalize FanDuel Sportsbook.

The exact timeline is unknown, but we do know the proposed launch date of January 8th, 2024 for a North Carolina sports betting launch has been pushed back.

This means January 8th is out of the question for a FanDuel North Carolina launch, but it is still pegged for an "Early 2024 Launch".

  • November 2023: Bet365 partners with the Charlotte Hornets to become the official sports betting partner. This means FanDuel and Bet365 now have the partnerships they need to go live.

FanDuel Partners With Nascar, Eyes North Carolina License

FanDuel partnering with NASCAR means they are one step closer and are at the front of the queue in terms of meeting the obligations required to go live in North Carolina.

With this deal, FanDuel Sportsbook has the partnership in place to go live as soon as a date is given.

At the moment, it is still just being labeled as 'Early 2024'.

Projected North Carolina FanDuel Promo Code

What promo code FanDuel decides to go with on launch remains to be seen, and we have not been told yet either way whether there will be any pre-registration offers from FanDuel North Carolina.

Are projection is that on launch day the North Carolina FanDuel promo code will bet 'Bet $5, Get $200' which tends to give users a guaranteed payout, even if their first bet loses.

This FanDuel North Carolina promo code is still to be confirmed, but this is what we predict will be the welcome offer in 2024.

You can use FanDuel in North Carolina to play DFS, and FanDuel are certain to get a sports betting license in the Tar Heel State.

Because online sports betting itself is not yet legal in North Carolina, we cannot say FanDuel is legal in North Carolina, but it is just a case of when not if.

Yes, once FanDuel Sportsbook goes live in North Carolina, it will be among the safest sportsbooks on the market, if not the most safe.

FanDuel Sportsbook are part of the Flutter Entertainment group, which has a strong reputation for safety.

Where Can I download the FanDuel Sportsbook App?
