BetRivers could be among the North Carolina sportsbooks to go live once sports betting launches in the state. Learn about the online sports betting site and app features, the expected BetRivers North Carolina bonus code and more in this sportsbook review.
BetRivers North Carolina is not yet legal as a retail sportsbook, mobile betting app or online betting site. However, the brand will likely launch a sportsbook app and online sports betting site in North Carolina in 2024. Now that sports betting bill HB 347 has been officially signed into law, expect BetRivers Sportsbook to apply for a legal sports betting license in the state aside from other North Carolina sports betting apps.
BetRivers NC could launch in 2024, but the timetable is still uncertain. As part of the most recent amendments to the online sports betting bill, the state lottery has up to 12 months after January 8, 2024 to authorize a sports betting launch. So if all goes to plan, we could see BetRivers North Carolina live sometime next year.
The BetRivers North Carolina Promo Code is TBD, though the eventual promo will be valued at up to $500 in a second chance bet bonus, as is offered in BetRivers' other states of operation. Users can also expect to see other North Carolina sports betting promos and bonuses, both from BetRivers and other sportsbooks.
Claiming the BetRivers North Carolina first bet offer should be easy—just follow the simple steps below to claim the promo.
BetRivers calls their promo a "second chance bet", which is the same as "risk-free" bets offered by many other operators. It works by replacing your wager amount with bet credits if your first bet loses. The bet credits must be played through in order to withdraw money, meaning you must wager the credits and win the wagers.
We expect the BetRivers North Carolina first bet offer to go live at the same time as the sportsbook itself. Online sports betting should be live in North Carolina within the next year or so, and once it is, BetRivers will likely be among the operators to launch in the state.
Anyone in North Carolina who is legally allowed to bet on sports should be able to sign up for a BetRivers account and redeem the welcome offer. North Carolina's legal betting age will be 21. The app and online sportsbook will require you to be in the state with your device's location services turned on in order to place any bets.
You will have plenty of options for promos and bonuses once BetRivers is able to launch in the Tar Heel State. You will also find promotional offers from other sportsbook operators in North Carolina.
We can't be sure of the exact details of the promos that BetRivers will offer in North Carolina, but we can look at other states where the sportsbook is already live to get an idea of what's to come. There will likely be several bonuses offered by BetRivers in NC, including some that are similar to the examples below (which we pulled from other states).
Among the BetRivers promos currently offered in other states is the Tuesday Home Run Insurance offer. This unique BetRivers promo is available for bettors who wager on any MLB player to hit a home run on a Tuesday. If the player fails to hit a home run but they do get an extra base hit, you can redeem up to $25 in bet credits to replace your lost wager.
This offer reduces some of the risk involved in your initial homerun wager, and it makes watching MLB games on Tuesdays a blast.
Do you love soccer? If so, you're in luck with this Bet and Get promo from BetRiver, which awards users that place same game parlays on soccer games.
To qualify, you must place a same game parlay of 3 or more legs on any soccer match. The promo is good for a bonus bet slip up to $25, which you will receive just for placing your bet, whether or not it wins.
Parlays with 3 legs receive a 10% matched bonus bet for their original wager, parlays with 4 legs receive a 25% matched bonus bet, and parlays with 5 or more legs receive a 50% matched bonus bet.
If you're a golf lover, then you will be a fan of BetRiver's golf parlay insurance bonus offer. This promo requires that you place a golf parlay with at least four legs. If only one of your legs loses, you can get your original stake back in the form of bonus bet credits, up to $25. To qualify, each leg of your wager needs to have odds of -200 or greater, with overall odds for the Parlay of +100 or greater. If two or more of your bet's legs lose, you won't qualify for the promotion
In states where BetRivers is currently live, the platform routinely offers promos that are only valid when you wager on local or in-state teams. With three professional sports teams in the state (The Carolina Panthers, Charlotte Hornets, and Carolina Hurricanes), we expect BetRivers North Carolina to run promos specifically for wagers involving these teams. If the platform partners with one or more of your favorite local teams, you should be able to find out about the partnership via ads on the team's website or directly from BetRivers.
Signing up for an account with BetRivers in North Carolina only takes about five minutes and it's easy for just about everyone. Follow the steps below to set up an account.
The BetRivers app for iOS and Android will host a wide range of features for users to enjoy. Getting to know the app is an intuitive experience, and you should have no trouble finding the tabs that include all of the sporting events you can wager on, all the different markets, and what promos are currently available. If you are switching over from the online sportsbook, you'll find that the BetRivers app has a familiar look and feel, with just a few less bells and whistles. The app has been designed to make it easy to place bets quickly while on the go.
When you open the BetRivers North Carolina app, you'll be greeted with the home screen. The main screen is occupied mainly by the day's main ongoing and upcoming sporting events, complete with the odds for various lines for that game.
Moving to the bottom of the screen, you will find four clickable tabs. From left to right, they are tabs for ongoing promotions, the rewards program, customer support, and your bet slip. You can use the promotions tab to find all of the available promos and bonus codes.
At the top of the screen, you'll find a drop-down menu in the upper left-hand corner that includes tabs for responsible gaming and help to get started with the app. You'll also find a scrollable menu on the top of the screen where you can see live ongoing games, specials, and all the different sports that you can bet on.
If a live sporting event is available for streaming via the app, you'll see that option once you click on the live games tab.
The BetRivers app itself is not the most flashy of all the sportsbooks out there, but we can say that it is easy to navigate and it gets the job done. BetRivers really shines when it comes to their lines, promotions and odds boosts, live betting features, and same game parlays.
BetRivers offers some of the most competitive odds of any sportsbook, and this is a critical feature that sets it apart from many other platforms. On top of the excellent odds offered, BetRivers runs constant promotions for its users and offers an array of odds boosts.
BetRivers also offers live cash-outs for many wagers, meaning the odds are adjusted by the sportsbook as the competition goes on and the wager can be cashed out with adjusted odds before the competition ends. This is an especially popular option for parlay bets.
While the BetRivers app will make sports betting a breeze for North Carolina residents, you don't have to download it to bet with this sportsbook. BetRivers also offers a web browser version of the sportsbook that can be accessed via desktop or mobile.
However, we recommend downloading the BetRivers NC app for the best experience placing all your wagers.
Downloading the BetRivers app in North Carolina will be easy. Simply visit the Apple App Store or Google Play, search for the app, and click 'Install'.
Many online betting platforms offer a different app for each state where they operate. BetRivers takes a different approach by offering one universal app for all states, which makes it easier to play if you visit another state where BetRivers is live.
Certain features will help to make BetRivers one of the go-to online sports betting platforms in North Carolina.
When you're betting, the last thing you want is to be limited by the betting markets offered by your sportsbook. Fortunately, BetRivers has a lot of different ways to wager on your favorite competitions.
The variety of betting markets offered by BetRivers is expected to be a feature that makes this platform out once it launches in North Carolina. You should rarely have to go elsewhere to place the exact bet you want to make.
Live betting is a feature offered by many online sports betting platforms nowadays, but BetRivers has really perfected this aspect of their sportsbook. Live betting is fast-paced with odds that are constantly changing, so it's important that the app you use works reliably.
You can find and place live bets on the BetRivers app very efficiently using the search bar or directly from the live competition tab.
Odds boosts are a straightforward type of promotion offered by some sportsbooks that simply increase your winnings if your bet hits. BetRivers offers an awesome array of daily odds boosts.
Some of the daily odds boosts will have tight restrictions on what kind of bets qualify, while others will have broader restrictions.
Like many other mobile sports betting platforms, BetRivers offers a rewards program that you are automatically enrolled in when you make an account. The program, called iRush, features different tier levels which you can attain when you reach a certain number of tier points. The various tiers give you exclusive access to special offers, extra deposit limit assistance, VIP awards, and more.
BetRivers iRush Rewards Tiers:
Yes, the iRush rewards program does give players free bet credits at certain tiers. The first two tiers focus mainly on free bets, while the higher tiers give additional benefits such as expedited withdrawals and more. Free bet credits might have fine print that only make them usable within a certain time period or on a certain type of wager.
BetRivers makes it easy and fast to deposit money into your account. Most deposits are instant and show up in your account within minutes so you can place bets the same day with the money you deposit.
Withdrawing money from your BetRivers account is easy via the app or desktop sportsbook. Most withdrawals take between 4-5 business days. Online banking should be a good and relatively fast option for withdrawing your money.
Using a BetRivers Play+ Card, you can withdraw funds to your account instantly. Other methods take between 2 and 5 days, with checks by mail taking up to two weeks.
You can use a Play+ card to get instant withdrawals with BetRivers.
BetRivers does offer PayPal in some other states where it operates, but this will be on a state-by-state basis and may not be available in North Carolina.
BetRivers is known for offering a wide array of sporting events to its users. Whether you want to bet on major professional or college sports, or even more niche sports like table tennis, BetRivers has you covered.
BetRivers includes all the major bet types that you'd look for on any online sports betting platform. Whether you're into live betting, parlays, or just straight moneyline wagers, BetRivers has you covered.
BetRivers sportsbook is run by Kambi, a major software company that provides platforms for other online sports betting operators including Barstool, DraftKings Sportsbook, and Unibet. Kambi is a sophisticated software that sets the lines for BetRivers and adjusts the odds. It also uses machine learning technology to increase safe betting.
With the Kambi software under the hood, the BetRivers app runs smoothly and is intuitive and easy to navigate. The app does seem to have some problems on the Android platform, with significantly lower Google Play ratings than what is seen on the Apple App Store.
Still, we find the BetRivers app to be a well-oiled machine that makes it easy to place the bets you want, when you want, even while on the go.
BetRivers employs Secure Socket Layer encryption software on every page of its app and online sportsbook. Your personal and financial information should be safe and secure thanks to this encryption.
Encryption protects your data against hackers. Additional security features include two-factor authentication, which adds an extra layer of safety to your account when you enable it.
Two-factor authentication sends you a pin code via email or text every time you want to sign into your account to verify your identity. You can also take matters into your own hands when it comes to account security by logging out of your account after every use and creating a strong password.
BetRivers offers customer service via email, live chat, or phone. The live chat feature is available via a tab in the bottom right-hand corner of the app home screen. Email addresses vary based on state for customer service but once one is available for North Carolina, it should be easy to find.
BetRivers is a major sports betting platform, but it still doesn't have the same brand recognition as some other sportsbooks. We find BetRivers to be worthy of a download thanks to its competitive odds and awesome live betting feature, among other factors.
Every sportsbook offers a welcome bonus, but some may be different than others. Below, we've compared the BetRivers welcome bonus code to other major operators.
In states where both apps are currently live, the BetMGM North Carolina welcome offer is better than BetRivers. While BetRivers is offering a "risk-free" first bet with a value ranging up to $500, BetMGM is typically offering the same with a value up to $1,000. We still don't know what the exact offer will be for both sportsbooks in North Carolina.
Right now, Caesars Sportsbook is running a promo in other states that includes a second chance bet of up to $1,250 on top of 1,000 rewards credits and 1,000 tiers credits. This offer is up there with some of the best, and BetRivers' promo of up to $500 in a second chance bet credit can't really compete. You should wait to see which offer is better once both these online sports betting giants go live in North Carolina, and make sure to read the fine print on both offers.
It is important to know and implement responsible gambling techniques. Gambling can be addictive and things can get out of control quickly.
Fortunately, BetRivers offers tools to users looking for help in betting responsibly. By navigating to the responsible gambling tab from the app's home screen, you can find a variety of tools to place limits on your account and more.
Tools offered by BetRivers include daily, weekly, and monthly deposit limits. You can also limit your spending based on your net losses. Another tool allows you to set time limits on app usage and gameplay. You can even set limits for how much you can wager.
If you feel things are getting out of control, use BetRiver's cool-off option, which will freeze your account for a given time period. If you or someone you know are in crisis or need help, call 1-800-GAMBLER.
BetRivers North Carolina will be a solid option once legal sports betting is live in the Tar Heel State. The app's ongoing promotions and variety of betting markets, as well as its consistently competitive lines, make it a good option for both novice and experienced bettors.
The BetRivers welcome promo might not offer quite as much value as other major sportsbooks, but the bonus bet credits only have a 1x playthrough requirement, which makes it a decent value. Even if you don't use their welcome offer, the ongoing odds boosts and promotions make this platform worthwhile.
Android users might find the app to be laggy or to have glitches that affect the user experience. Overall, the app interface is easy to use and place bets with. And BetRivers offers a wide array of exciting markets to choose from, so there will always be something new to wager on.
BetRivers is not yet legal in North Carolina, though that could change next year as the online sports betting bill has been signed into law. Once betting is live in North Carolina, BetRivers should be able to get a license and launch here.
While we don't know the exact bonus code for North Carolina yet because BetRivers hasn't launched here, we can guess based on offers in other states. The welcome offer should come in the form of a second chance bet worth up to $500.
There is no official launch date yet for BetRivers in North Carolina, though it's widely expected that date could be early 2024. The bill to legalize sports betting in the state has been signed by Governor Roy Cooper and now the state is in the process of setting that launch date.
BetRivers withdrawal times in other states where the sportsbook is live generally take between 2-5 business days. Faster withdrawal times are available with the Play+ card, and you may be able to unlock faster withdrawals via the iRush rewards program.
There is not a BetRivers app in North Carolina yet because sports betting has not yet launched in the state, though it is legalized. Once sports betting goes live, online betting platforms like BetRivers should be able to launch their apps.
The BetRivers North Carolina sign up bonus should be a second chance bet of up to $500. We will have to wait until the sportsbook is able to launch to get a clear answer on the exact value and details. The second chance bet awards you with bet credits to replace your first wager if it loses.
We don't have the promo code for BetRivers in North Carolina yet because the app still hasn't launched here. Online sports wagering is still in the process of being legalized in North Carolina. Once it goes live, the BetRivers promo code will be available.
