All states across the US still do not offer sports betting, mobile sports betting specifically. Some states have a strong stance against sports betting, while some have legislation pending. Some states, like North Carolina, will probably be closer to seeing sports betting in their states. And if things go well in the upcoming legislative session, we may see online sports betting in North Carolina soon. And hopefully soon enough, as the market is quickly growing with many learning how to own a sportsbook.
Any pay per head bookie can tell you how easy and affordable it is to open your own sportsbook. And they will also tell you just how profitable online sports betting is. After all, you are bringing the product straight to your players’ devices. There are no lines, waiting time, and travel needed. Just good old internet access, and you are good to go.
Online Sports Betting in North Carolina
And knowing how easy it is to become a bookie pay per head, its relatively easy to establish an online presence when it comes to gambling and sports betting. And with the sports betting season expected to pick up in activity and revenue, its only natural that those in the industry do everything to be prepared. North Carolina legislators, when the session begins next week, have until June 30 to do so. While the window is short, it actually can be easy to pass the sports betting bill before the session ends.
SB688 has gained a lot of support to win the vote. The bill, SB688, passed the Senate last August on a 26-19 vote. Given how sports betting is gaining popularity in neighboring states, the House may give similar support to the bill. Once the bill is signed, it will then go to the desk of Governor Roy Cooper for approval. The Governor is known to be supportive of sports betting as a means to help generate employment and revenue for the state.
