North Carolina is considering a limited entry into sports wagering, nearly a year after a Supreme Court ruling opened the door to legal betting outside Nevada.
The Tar Heel State is the 30th state this year to consider sports wagering.
State Sen. Jim Davis has introduced legislation that would allow the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians to offer sports betting at two casinos – Harrah’s Cherokee Resort and Harrah’s Cherokee Valley River Casino & Hotel.
Read the full legislation – S 154.
The bill proposes in-person betting only, not including a mobile wagering component, and would allow betting on both professional and collegiate sports. If approved, betting could be implemented at the two casinos by summer.
