It remains to be seen what the King of Sportsbooks will do in North Carolina - but we’ll know very soon!

Let’s break down everything to know about BetMGM North Carolina and the potential BetMGM North Carolina bonus code.

BetMGM North Carolina Bonus Code At A Glance

BetMGM leadership announced this past summer during a financial earnings report that they will enter the North Carolina sports betting market.

They followed up on that promise in late December when BetMGM was one of seven operators to apply for a mobile betting license in the Tar Heel State by the Dec. 27 deadline.

That means BetMGM North Carolina can launch on Day 1 (March 11) of North Carolina mobile sports betting.

BetMGM North Carolina is expected to offer a sleeking mobile app, great live chat for customer service and one of the best North Carolina sportsbook promos when it launches.

Keep reading to learn everything you need to know about BetMGM North Carolina, including what the BetMGM North Carolina bonus code will offer and if there will be a BetMGM NC bonus code for early sign ups.

BetMGM North Carolina will launch in the Tar Heel State thanks to a recently announced partnership with Charlotte Motor Speedway.

That deal helped BetMGM NC meet a unique requirement of the HB 347 which states that any operator wanting to do business in the state needs to have a “written designation" with one of the 11 such entities in the state.

There were originally expected to be up to 12 sportsbooks launching before lawmakers changed the licensing structure (now there will only be 11).

That change has been partly responsible for delaying the launch of North Carolina sports betting.

The earliest BetMGM NC and other operators were expected to launch was Jan. 8 (per the original bill), but now we have a set date of March 11 at 12 EST.

When the time comes, BetMGM NC is sure to be among the first to offer a pre-launch BetMGM North Carolina bonus code.

The Game Day’s goal is to provide you with as much information as possible about BetMGM North Carolina and the BetMGM NC bonus code before it launches.

BetMGM North Carolina Bonus Code Details

BetMGM North Carolina will launch on March 11 , but we don’t know much about what the BetMGM North Carolina bonus code will offer.

We’ll have more information on the specifics on March 1, which is the start of the NC sports betting pre-registration period.

North Carolina State law prohibits us from giving a ton of details on the potential BetMGM NC bonus code. What we do know is the BetMGM new user bonus code in legal states is a Bet $5, Get $150 offer.

New users in other legal BetMGM states get 3 $50 bonus bets - win or lose. They have seven days to use the bonus bets. This includes states like Kentucky, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania, among others.

We also know that BetMGM has offered up to $1,500 First-Bet Bonus, or a Bet $10, Get $200 in bonus bets offer in newly legal states like Ohio, Massachusetts and Kentucky. It remains to be seen what BetMGM NC will offer new bettors.

In the past, BetMGM has also allowed new users to grab their launch day promo even if they took the early-sign up promo. We’ll have more details on this in the near future.

When Will BetMGM North Carolina Launch?

The short answer is March 11, 2024, with March 1 as the expected pre-registration start date.

BetMGM is one of seven operators that applied for a mobile betting license, which means it will be able to launch on Day 1.

College betting is permitted under HB 347 and the state of North Carolina is itching to bet on UNC and Duke in the NCAA Tournament for the first time this spring.

The North Carolina sports betting launch is expected to be massive as one of the biggest CBB fanbases in the country gets a sports betting launch at the start of March Madness.

BetMGM always offers one of the best early-sign up sportsbook promos in the industry. Expect no different in North Carolina.

In the past, you’ve received $100 in bonus bets just for creating an account. If this is the case, the bonus bets will be available when BetMGM North Carolina launches on March 11.

How the BetMGM Bonus Code Works in Legal States

BetMGM’s current offer for new users in legal states is a Bet $5, Get $150 in bonus bets instantly deal.

This by no means is to say it will be the offer that the BetMGM NC bonus code unlocks on March 11, however. That being said, if you’re new to sports betting, you’ll definitely want an idea of how a sportsbook bonus code might work.

Let’s take a look at how BetMGM users in legal states unlock their bonus:

  • ✅ Register and fill out all personal information: email, address, phone number, last four of social security
  • ✅ Create a unique password, set up 2-factor authentication and download the geolocation app
  • ✅ Set up your preferred payment method and confirm your banking information (you’ll receive a text from your bank)
  • ✅ Deposit and bet at least $5
  • ✅ Get $150 in bonus bets instantly
  • ✅ New users in legal state get 3 $50 bonus bets
  • ✅ Those bonus bets expire in 7 days

Again, this is a hypothetical example and almost assuredly will not be the BetMGM NC bonus code offer. Check back in the coming weeks for details on what could be offered from BetMGM NC.

BetMGM North Carolina Bonus Code vs. NC Competitors

How do we expect the BetMGM North Carolina bonus code will compare to the expected offers from competitors? Very nicely.

It remains to be seen what ESPN BET North Carolina and Fanatics Sportsbook North Carolina offer, but both are currently offering new users some variation of a Bet & Get promo.

Each of these North Carolina sportsbook promos have their pros and cons. If you’re a new bettor, you’ll probably go for a low-risk, Bet & Get offer.

More seasoned bettors with bigger bankrolls might drift toward the BetMGM North Carolina bonus code, which is ideal for taking a shot on a big moneyline underdog because you’ll still get bonus bets if you lose.

BetMGM NC Banking Options

BetMGM is taking wagers in 21 states so it’s pretty clear now which payment methods it accepts. Here’s a look at how you can fund your BetMGM North Carolina account:

  • 💰Visa
  • 💰Mastercard
  • 💰Online bank transfer
  • 💰PayNearMe
  • 💰Play+ Prepaid card
  • 💰Skrill
  • 💰e-Check

BetMGM North Carolina Rewards Program

BetMGM North Carolina rewards program called MGM Rewards (formerly M Life Rewards). This program allows players to exchange points for various perks like hotels, dining, and entertainment.

When you create a new BetMGM North Carolina bonus code account, you’re automatically enrolled in MGM Rewards, which has different tiers:

  • Sapphire - 0-19,999 tier credits
  • Pearl - 20,000+ credits
  • Gold - 75,000 credits
  • Platinum - 200,000 credits
  • Noir - Invite only

The BetMGM NC rewards program is like Ceasars NC reward program that allows bettors to accumulate bonus bets or cash in their points for experiences such as spa days, concerts, and more.

BetMGM NC Mobile App Expert Review

When you sign up with the BetMGM NC bonus code on March 11, you’re getting access to a BetMGM NC mobile app that is second to only FanDuel in this writer’s expert opinion.

Others agree, too: It’s rated 4.8/5 on the App Store with 190K+ reviews/4.1/5 on Google Play with 126K+ reviews.

I’ve been betting for more than two decades and I’ve tried almost all of the relevant sports betting apps since I live so close to New Jersey and Massachusetts.

That makes me uniquely qualified to preview what the BetMGM NC mobile app will offer. I live about an hour away from Springfield, Massachusetts. I’ve put the BetMGM app to good use since Massachusetts launched sports betting back in March of 2023.

The BetMGM North Carolina mobile app should reflect what I experienced, which is a slick mobile betting app wrapped in BetMGM’s signature Gold & Black color scheme.

The BetMGM NC bonus code and other BetMGM North Carolina promos are front-and-center when you open the app. Just scroll on the navbar until you find a promo or Lion’s Boost you like.

Once you get past the promos, the white backdrop for the game odds is a refreshing change of pace from seeing either blue & white of FanDuel or the Green & Black combo of DraftKings and bet365.

In fact, it’s a very clean look that is free of clutter and allows the teams and odds to really “pop" off the screen.

If you want to skip the promos carousel, BetMGM NC makes it very easy to search by sport with a text bar right above the ‘Log In’ tab.

North Carolina sports bettors will enjoy the BetMGM NC mobile app due its simplicity.

For instance, when you want to search for additional markets on a particular game, just click “All Wagers" and you’ll be brought to a series of drop downs that offer various player and team props.

I enjoy FanDuel as much as the next bettor, but this is an area in which BetMGM North Carolina has the advantage. FanDuel tends to give me information overload when I click on “More Wagers."

There seems to be a bit more of a ‘gimmick’ feel to FanDuel’s offering of extra markets on a particular game (x player to hit 6+ threes isn’t a bet that most people are probably looking for immediately).

BetMGM keeps it more simple with ‘Player Points’ and ‘Player Rebounds’ as the top two options when you hit “All Wagers."

All of the above is more than enough reason to sign up with the BetMGM North Carolina bonus code and download the BetMGM NC app when it launches on March 11.

BetMGM NC Edit My Bet Feature

Aside from a tremendous BetMGM NC mobile betting app, you also get access to the game-changing Edit My Bet feature when you sign up with the BetMGM North Carolina bonus code on March 11.

This innovative Edit My Bet option allows users to take control of their wagers like never before. Here’s how it works:

  1. ✅ After placing a bet, users can navigate to the ‘My Bets’ section of the BetMGM NC app.
  2. ✅ There you can find the option to edit eligible bets, marked clearly for convenience.
  3. ✅ Once selected, users can modify various aspects of their bet, such as the selection, stake amount, or even opt for a partial cash-out.

The process is seamless and user-friendly, ensuring that bettors can adapt to changing circumstances or capitalize on emerging opportunities in real-time.

For instance, users can adjust their bets based on injury updates, shifting odds, or evolving game dynamics, maximizing their chances of success.

If Bryce Young is injured in the first half, you can cash out your Panthers ML leg of your parlay and still have a shot at some winnings if the other legs hit.

Of course, your 3 or 4-leg parlay is now a two-leg parlay and the payout will be reflected those new odds.

BetMGM North Carolina NASCAR Partnership

NASCAR is part of North Carolina’s culture, and now BetMGM NC is too. BetMGM North Carolina met the requirement set forth in HB 347 by partnering with Charlotte Motor Speedway in early January.

“BetMGM’s partnership with Charlotte Motor Speedway meets a great demand for entertainment from North Carolinians. Together we will deliver a premier and responsible gaming product that benefits many state agencies," BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt said in a press release.

Charlotte Motor Speedway is home to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, as well as the Coca-Cola 600 and the Bank of America ROVAL 400, so fan can expect to see plenty of BetMGM NC signage and BetMGM North Carolina promos during race weekends.

The Coca-Cola 600 takes place on May 26, 2024, while the Bank of Americal ROVAL 400 is on October 11.

There are few states that love NASCAR more than North Carolina, so we expect BetMGM North Carolina to have plenty of ‘action’ on all of the races this season. There will likely be driver odds boosts, custom-crafted Same Game Parlays wagers available on the BetMGM NC app.

NASCAR betting differs from traditional sports because you’re either betting on a driver to either win, finish top 3, top 5 or top 10.

In this case, the odds will look like this: Outright winner - Austin Dillon +1100. What that mean is if you bet $100 on Denny Hamlin to win, you’ll win $1,100, plus your original stake.

Our Expert Take on BetMGM North Carolina

BetMGM North Carolina isn’t live yet, but we have enough of an idea to give you a good rundown and opinion.

We’ve tried out the BetMGM Sportsbook app (the Massachusetts version) and our initial takeaway is it’s a very aesthetically pleasing betting app and it is definitely going to be one of the best North Carolina betting apps

The white background is easy on the eyes and the odds are easy to read despite not much of a contrast (think DraftKings’ black-green-white layout).

We noticed that when using an iPhone 13 Pro, you’re able to see about 4 game odds on your screen at a time (this is on par with most competitors).

As for the quality of odds at BetMGM, they are usually industry-leading in terms of point spreads, however, they sometimes offer a slightly high ‘vig’ (or price to bet) than DraftKings NC and FanDuel. For instance, I looked at an Iowa-Maryland men’s basketball game and FanDuel had Maryland -5.5 points (-102), while BetMGM had it -105.

That’s not a huge difference, however, and the overall quality of odds stand out when compared to basically every other sportsbook industry.

BetMGM North Carolina also separates itself by the sheer amount of odds boosts offered and its live-chat customer service, which we found to be very responsive.

The one gripe we have is that it took a bit for the bonus bets to show up when we signed up in Massachusetts (there was a message about delays during launch).

The BetMGM Rewards program is a boon for bettors with a large bankroll and separates BetMGM NC from the likes of FanDuel NC (no rewards program) and DraftKings NC (slimmed down rewards).
