North Carolina the 19th Jurisdiction to Authorize Legal Sports Betting

The American Gaming Association released the following statement after Governor Roy Cooper signed S. 154 – a bill which enjoyed overwhelming bipartisan support – to authorize sports betting at two tribal casinos in North Carolina. With Gov. Cooper’s signature, the Tarheel State becomes the 19th jurisdiction in America to authorize sports betting.

“Legalizing sports betting in North Carolina is a welcome step in the fight against the dangerous, illegal market,” said Bill Miller, president and CEO of the American Gaming Association. “Providing North Carolinians with legal alternatives to illicit offshore operators will help safeguard consumers and the integrity of the games, advance responsible gaming initiatives and give state and federal law enforcement an advantage in combating illegal gambling.”
