Seven mobile sports betting operators applied for North Carolina sports betting licenses by the state lottery’s recommended Dec. 27 application submission date. The lottery will continue to accept applications on a rolling basis moving forward, but the seven operators in the initial batch are expected to have earliest access to the state’s market to offer sports betting apps.

The seven operators to apply for mobile licenses in North Carolina are:

bet365
BetMGM
DraftKings
ESPN BET
Fanatics Sportsbook
FanDuel
Underdog

Caesars Sportsbook, a nationwide sports betting brand, is not among from the first batch of mobile sports betting applicants, but there’s a reason for the absence. Due to existing relationships with tribal casinos in North Carolina, Caesars applied as a service provider rather than an operator.
