Best North Carolina Sports Betting Apps

With North Carolina legalizing sports betting on March 11th, and with residents able to claim pre-launch offers from the 1st of March, the app stores will be flooded with sportsbook apps.

You’ll also be able to find so many best North Carolina Sports Betting app articles on the internet, but they will be written by people who have never placed a bet in their life.

I’ve been betting online for just under twenty years, and I've been working in gambling for ten years, with my main job being selling and comparing sports betting sites. Therefore, you’ll be reading a ranking list from someone who knows something, for a change.

In my list of best North Carolina sports betting apps, you will find a top-six even though seven sportsbooks will be going live in North Carolina. I’ve decided to leave our Underdog Sportsbook as I don’t know what we can expect from the fantasy brand.

FanDuel North Carolina

FanDuel Sportsbook tops my list, which some may say is predictable, however, there’s a reason why this is the most downloaded sportsbook in North America.

One of the main reasons for choosing FanDuel Sportsbook as the best app being released in North Carolina is due to the depth of markets. FanDuel Sportsbook seems to have more betting options than any other sportsbook on the market.

FanDuel’s app itself is one of the best things about the sportsbook, it’s one of the easiest to use on the market. FanDuel are part of Flutter which owns various marketing-led products in the UK, and the shared information between these products has led to industry-leading betting apps.

FanDuel Sportsbook also has a wide range of all customer promotions, including odds boost, same game parlay no sweat bets, and refer a friend.

The Same Game Parlay feature is also industry-leading, mainly due to the array of markets they have available.

Their cash-out and live betting offerings also stack up well.

Bet365 North Carolina

This might surprise a few people, but Bet365 Sportsbook features second in my North Carolina sports betting rankings.

There’s a reason why pretty much all sharps in the US use Bet365. Bet365 Sportsbook doesn’t advertise as much as FanDuel or DraftKings which is why the app hasn’t been as popular as many Europeans (who are used to using the app) would have thought.

However, Bet365 is rapidly growing in the state and will continue to do so.

One of the main reasons for doing so is the features the sportsbook offers. Bet365 Sportsbook operates globally and is used by millions, they’ve used all this data to improve their offering.

Bet365 Sportsbook seems to boost the right things all the time, when you log on to the app you will be hit by all customer odds boosts, and Same Game Parlay odds boosts.

Given their global nature, they have such an array of sports and betting markets.

Bet365 Sportsbook also runs early payout promotions, for example, on the NBA they will pay your bet out as a winner if you lead by 20 points. They run this on most major sports.

Bet365 Sportsbook also boosts parlays as a standard.

Trust me, try Bet365 Sportsbook, you won’t regret it.

DraftKings North Carolina

DraftKings Sportsbook is probably a name everyone expected to feature inside the top two, and it will do on many people's lists.

However, when you look at promotions and useability, it’s hard to argue with the app being behind both FanDuel and Bet365.

Don’t get me wrong, DraftKings Sportsbook is an amazing app and will be in the top two when it comes to app downloads in North Carolina.

DraftKings Sportsbook is another one which offers great all-customer promotions which include no sweat same game parlays, odds boosts, and bet and get offers.

The only thing that sometimes lets DraftKings Sportsbook down is the clunkiness of the product, however, once you get used to it you will be fine.

BetMGM North Carolina

BetMGM Sportsbook gets a bit of slack when it comes to market-leading sportsbooks, which is somewhat deserved. I actually think there’s a huge gap between the three listed above and the ones to come in his sports betting review.

BetMGM Sportsbooks' main issue is the useability. The actual odds, promotions, and product features stack up in the market, but the app is very poor in terms of navigation, etc.

One thing that gets mentioned a lot in the betting chitter chatter is the player prop options available with BetMGM Sportsbook.

Despite the app having its flaws, it’s a worthy app to have on your phone, as the odds and lines are better than FanDuel and DraftKings a lot of time.

Therefore they lack the product but offer value in the odds, which is what really matters.

Not only do they offer value in the odds, but they have the biggest pre-launch promotion, which is to get a $200 no deposit bonus on registration.

Fanatics Sportsbook North Carolina

Fanatics Sportsbook is one of the quickest-growing sports betting apps on the market. Whilst Fanatics Sportsbook lacks in a few areas, like key features due to the immaturity of the sportsbook.

However, Fanatics Sportsbook makes up for that with features such as FanCash, which can be used at Fanatics.

Not only can you unlock Fanatics vouchers by using the Fanatics Sportsbook app, but their live streaming options are market-leading, especially when it comes to NFL streaming.

I have no doubt that Fanatics Sportsbook will improve over time and the app will improve in terms of a product.

Fanatics Sportsbook App Review – North Carolina

Overall rating: 4.2/5

All customer promotions: 4/5

App useability: 3/5

Fanatics North Carolina Welcome Bonus: Get a hat & 10 x $100 promotions.

Caesars Sportsbook North Carolina

Caesars Sportsbook is in a similar place to Fanatics Sportsbook, whilst the app lacks some of the product features and all customer promotions that the big boys offer.

However, like Fanatics Sportsbook, Caesars Sportsbook rewards users with Caesars rewards which can be claimed against all sorts of things.

Caesars Sportsbook odds aren’t that competitive, and the product itself is pretty hard to use. Caesars Sportsbook does excel when it comes to quick payout options, something that’s important if you plan on winning.

ESPNBet Sportsbook North Carolina

I think over time ESPNBet Sportsbook will become an industry-leading sports betting app in the US, however, the product and offering is still very immature.

The ESPNBet promotions can stack up compared to other apps, but the useability isn’t there yet.

However, give it six months and this will be the app everyone is talking about.
