AGA Welcomes North Carolina’s Move To Legalize Sports Betting

The American Gaming Association (AGA) has welcomed the legalization of sports betting in North Carolina.

“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,” he added.

AGA is one of the largest trade groups in the multi-billion dollar gaming industry in the US.

Earlier last week, on Friday, NC Governor Roy Cooper officially approved the Senate Bill 154 (SB 154) legalizing sports betting operations in the state.

Following the legalization of a sports gambling bill, two casinos owned by the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians are now able to offer sportsbooks. The legislation is classified as Class III gaming in North Carolina and the current laws are amended to include sports betting.

Earlier in April, NC legislators approved a bill to legalize casino nights for charities.

With the new development, North Carolina has joined the league of US states which have legalized sports betting after the US supreme court in a landmark judgment in 2018 allowed states to regulate sports betting. Since then over a dozen states have legalized sports gambling and more are in the process.
