BetMGM Launches Mobile Sports Betting in North Carolina

12 March 2024

BetMGM, a leading sports betting and iGaming operator, today is among the first to introduce mobile sports betting in North Carolina, giving customers in the Tar Heel state access to a wide variety of betting options as well as the opportunity to earn experiences at MGM Resorts' properties nationwide.

"The passion of North Carolina's sports fandom runs deep, making it one of BetMGM's most electrifying new markets," said BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt. "We look forward to delivering a best-in-class product elevating game days and race-viewing experiences for fans from Charlotte to Greensboro and Asheville to Wilmington."

BetMGM's industry-leading platform features a user-friendly interface that adapts and evolves at the speed of the game. Highlights include:

  • Expanded Pre-Game and In-Game Options: The BetMGM app features Angstrom Sports technology that provides dozens of wagering options in real time for major U.S. sports. Customers can access a wide portfolio of pre-game and live markets with attractive odds on the team, individual player and play-by-play bets.
  • Real World Rewards: BetMGM customers can enjoy the perks of a world-class loyalty program with their gameplay. With every wager placed in North Carolina, BetMGM app users now earn BetMGM Rewards Points and MGM Rewards Tier Credits, unlocking VIP benefits to MGM Resorts 20+ premier destination resorts ranging from Bellagio, ARIA, MGM Grand and Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas to Borgata in Atlantic City, Beau Rivage in Mississippi, and MGM National Harbor in Maryland.
  • Same-Game Parlay+: BetMGM's app features Same-Game Parlay+, a new way to combine favorite same-game parlays to create one super parlay. Players now can connect two different same-game parlays into a single bet with ease for dramatically increased odds.

Earlier this year, BetMGM announced its partnership with Charlotte Motor Speedway, with plans to bring exclusive experiences to racing fans in North Carolina. BetMGM also extended its partnership with North Carolina-based Richard Childress Racing as its Official Sports Betting Operator, which includes a BetMGM "wrapped" car for select races throughout the season.

As BetMGM continues to expand to new markets, responsible gambling education remains a key focus. BetMGM is proud to provide resources to help customers play responsibly including GameSense, an industry-leading program, developed and licensed to MGM Resorts by the British Columbia Lottery Corporation. Through the integration within BetMGM's mobile and desktop platforms, customers can receive the same GameSense experience they have grown to rely on at MGM Resorts properties nationwide. This complements BetMGM's already existing responsible gaming tools which serve to provide customers with an entertaining and safe digital experience.

The BetMGM app is now available for download in North Carolina and is accessible on both iOS and Android. For more information, follow @BetMGM on X, formerly Twitter.
