Is DraftKings Legal in North Carolina?

DraftKings is not available in the Tar Heel State.  The only betting company regulated and licensed in North Carolina is William Hill, however, they do not operate a mobile website.  This could all change soon as the state is expected to begin launching mobile sites.  There are still mobile sites available via Web browsers that operate outside of NC accessible to those living in the state or local bookies.  Jazz Sports, in business since 1994, welcomes players from North Carolina with a $1000 RISK FREE WAGER.

North Carolina lawmakers are looking to allow for in-state sportsbooks to offer mobile wagering.  Legislation could be reintroduced at the start of 2022.  For now, individuals can rely on websites like Jazz Sports.

SB 688 already cleared the Senate and was awaiting a vote in the House of Representatives. It passed 12-4 out of the House Commerce Committee in November 2021 and has moved to the House Judiciary Committee for consideration.

The 2022 legislative session was set to begin May 1, thus there will be nothing to report until that time.

UNC vs. Duke in the 2022 Final Four

This was billed as a titanic clash between two state teams that just happen to be two of the most successful programs in college basketball history.  This represented the 258th meeting between these teams.


It's a special one too.  Coach K was retiring after the tournament.  It will be the 47th and final year for Mike Krzyzewski's record setting career.

Amazingly, these teams have never faced one another in the Final Four.

“There are some portions of both fan bases that are scared to death to see this game for fear of losing it,” said Wes Durham, the longtime play-by-play announcer who also hosts an ACC-themed sports talk show. “There are others who just say, ‘This is the biggest stage this rivalry has seen, but it doesn’t automatically mean whoever wins has leverage over the loser forever.’ Only time will tell.”
