In the latest gambling industry news, online sports betting in North Carolina will start on March 11. This means that residents will be able to place bets right in time for March Madness. Preparations are underway, and people can start to pre-register in sportsbooks as early as March 1. The state will be issuing a certificate of compliance to operators to be able to go live on March 11.

The North Carolina State Lottery Commission announced the launch for March 11, at noon time. Those in the industry would prefer an earlier date, especially with the NFL’s Super Bowl in February. If you look at your bookie pay per head software, you will see how much action sportsbooks could lose by waiting until March.

This can help address the sudden influx of activity that will surely flood sportsbooks on launch day. However, wagering before March 11 is not allowed. So far, only online betting is allowed. In the future, the commission may allow for in-person betting, provided that operators meet the requirements. This is aside from retail betting in tribal casinos.

Even without Super Bowl betting, Selection Sunday for the 2024 NCAA Basketball season will be on March 17, then the first few games will follow shortly after. This schedule is in line with Governor Roy Cooper’s wishes for a pre-March Madness launch. Given that the bill allowing sports betting was passed just last year, the state is definitely looking forward to a wager-filled 2024.
