In a strategic move set to revolutionize North Carolina’s sports betting landscape, BetMGM has solidified its position by securing a market access agreement with Charlotte Motor Speedway. Pending regulatory approval, this landmark agreement will enable BetMGM to introduce its cutting-edge online sports betting platform to the Tar Heel State, promising a significant impact on the region’s economy.

The impending launch of legalized sports betting in North Carolina, slated for the first quarter of 2024, has drawn attention as a pivotal moment for both BetMGM and eager residents. Anticipating immense potential, Adam Greenblatt, CEO of BetMGM expressed enthusiasm, stating, “We have been eagerly awaiting legal, safe, regulated online sports betting in North Carolina, a state with more than 10 million people and one of the most vibrant sports environments in the country.”

The agreement’s implications extend beyond the realm of sports entertainment, with tax revenues from sports betting earmarked to bolster several facets of North Carolina’s public sector. Notably, these funds are expected to significantly support publicly funded colleges and contribute to a dedicated major event fund, driving tourism, job creation, and fostering substantial economic growth.

Ripley Rand, Chair of the North Carolina State Lottery Commission, indicated that mobile sports betting is anticipated to commence in time for the 2024 Super Bowl, underscoring the imminent evolution of the state’s gambling landscape.

Highlighting the collaborative potential, Greenblatt emphasized the partnership’s multifaceted advantages, stating, “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.”

In tandem with this development, DraftKings recently inked a written designation agreement with NASCAR, securing its operational presence in North Carolina. This accord also designates DraftKings as the exclusive daily fantasy sports partner of NASCAR in both the United States and Canada, further intensifying the competition within North Carolina’s burgeoning sports betting arena.

To delve deeper into BetMGM’s vision and strategy for North Carolina, CEO Adam Greenblatt engaged in an illuminating conversation with The Huddle in an in-depth interview, available for viewing here.

The convergence of these partnerships and impending market entries heralds a new era of sports betting in North Carolina, poised to redefine entertainment, revenue streams, and the sports ecosystem within the state.
