North Carolina is one of the least gambling-friendly states in terms of its laws and pending legislation.
What little gambling there is in the Tar Heel State takes place in only two Tribal casinos, both of which are in the western part of the state far away from the major population centers.
Those two Tribal casinos do offer physical sports betting locations, but the Tar Heel State is yet to find a path for the legalization of sports betting.
All that remains outside of the reservation is some charity gaming, and a few low-stakes bingo games. Even a state lottery wasn’t introduced for North Carolinians until as recently as 2006. On the upside, Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) players will be excited to learn that DFS is offered to all residents and visitors to North Carolina.
North Carolina sports betting bill (HB 347) was approved by House Finance Committee and House Judiciary 1 Committee, if approved in the Rules, Calendar and Operations of the House it will move to the House Floor.
