Is There Online Gambling in North Carolina?

With the impending launch of online sports gambling in North Carolina on March 11, there is currently no form of online betting right now.

However, online sports betting has become increasingly widespread across the US, with state launches happening fairly regularly over the last couple of years.

The last of note was Ohio, which has a population of around 12 million meaning thousands more people were entering the online sports gambling market.

It's expected to be a similar story for North Carolina, with a population of just over 10.5 million, it's going to be a busy day for bookmakers on March 11.
