FanDuel Sportsbook Offering $300 Pre-Launch Bonus In North Carolina

With legal online sports betting in North Carolina just around the corner, sportsbooks have started vying for the attention of players from the new market. FanDuel Sportsbook is set to arrive in North Carolina on March 11 as the state gears up for the historic launch of online sports betting.

But 10 days prior, customers will be able to pre-register on platforms of their choice on March 1

FanDuel is pulling out all the stops to ensure it gets the lion’s share of new customers in North Carolina. Starting from March 1, you’ll be able to sign up on FanDuel North Carolina as long as you are physically located within the state.

However, it’s important to note that you will not be able to place a wager until noon on March 11.

Once signed up, you can claim an additional $200 in bonus bets on March 11 after you place your first $5 bet. 

This offer is only available to players who have never signed up on FanDuel before. If you’ve signed up on the sportsbook from anywhere else in the country, then you cannot claim the combined $300 bonus available in North Carolina. That will be one of the more rewarding NC sportsbook promos available in the market.

FanDuel holds a large market share across the US, and it may capture the fledgling North Carolina sports betting market too.

FanDuel Partners With PGA In North Carolina

In December 2023, it was announced that FanDuel had partnered with the PGA Tour to operate in North Carolina. Despite the terms of the deal remaining undisclosed, we can safely assume that the partnership is likely to remain in place for a minimum period of five years. 

“We have a great relationship with the Tour and we have every intention of continuing that,” said Christian Genetski, President of FanDuel. “Building off of an existing partner made it a pretty easy conversation to get to the parameters of a deal that we were very comfortable with.”

21+ and present in NC. Bonuses are issued in non-withdrawable bonus bets.

Pre-launch offer: Bonus bets expire 30 days after FanDuel accepts its first real money wager in North Carolina. Unique user identity verification required.

Post-launch offer: First online real money wager only. $10 first deposit required. Bonus bets expire seven days after receipt. Restrictions apply. See full terms at
