Underdog Sports is a daily fantasy sports (DFS) site that allows users to draft fantasy teams and pick winners for real-money prizes. It is currently only operating DFS, but it's rumored to be expanding into traditional sports betting soon.
Underdog Sports is available in North Carolina, but only for DFS. North Carolina has not specifically banned Daily Fantasy Sports, but it hasn't passed any specific legislation regulating it either. So DFS operators like Underdog Sports exist in a legal grey area in NC.
Underdog Sports has received a sports betting license in Ohio, but it has not launched yet.
There is no Underdog Sports North Carolina promo available yet. However, for its fantasy sports offerings, Underdog's welcome offer is a $100 first deposit match.
You'll have 60 days to use this Underdog North Carolina deposit match welcome offer bonus before it expires.
This operator has a menu of other consistent North Carolina betting promotions available for new and existing players.
These work similarly to odds boosts at other sports betting sites. The more picks you make, the higher the standard multiplier. These multiplier boosts add even more to your already higher payout.
Specific picks are pre-selected to be apart of periodic sweepstakes at Underdog. When you make one of those picks, you're entered into a random drawing that usually happens within 72 hours of the game finishing. Check the sweepstake terms to know what you need to do to be eligible.
Most betting and gaming sites have a referral program. Underdog's is good for $10. When your friend or family member enters your username in the promo code field during sign up and deposit at least $10, you'll get $10 credited to your account.
It's unclear if sports betting with Underdog will be nested in the existing Underdog Fantasy app. But if it is, it will be that much easier for North Carolina bettors to use and get familiar with one of the top-rated North Carolina betting apps available. It currently ranks No. 7 in free U.S. sports apps on the App Store. It's available for both iOS and Android devices.

It's worth noting that the app is divided into two main contest types: Draft and Pick'Em. Both are available in North Carolina, but that's not true of all states where Underdog operates. Draft games include Best Ball contests in which Underdog automatically picks your highest-performing players to win various levels of prizes. In a pick'em contest, you'll compete against a preset number of rivals to correctly pick a stat category.
The payment methods are a little more limited at Underdog Sports than at other sportsbooks:
|✅ 1-2 days
|VISA Debit/Credit Card
|✅ 1-5 days
|Mastercard Debit/Credit Card
|✅ 1-5 days
You'll be required to deposit at least $10. Withdrawals have a minimum of $10 as long as you have more than $10 in your account.
Interchecks is a payment platform that connects to your direct deposit and can send you a physical check or e-check with your withdrawn funds.
Underdog Sports has several X (Twitter) accounts for various sports, as well as its Picks and Draft games. However, these are the main customer support methods for Underdog Sports:
Underdog Sports, or Underdog Fantasy, is a daily fantasy sports operator in the U.S. It's best known for its fantasy contests and "Best Ball" tournaments, as well as pick'ems and other draft fantasy games. It was founded in 2020.
Yes, Underdog Fantasy is legit. It's one of the most popular daily fantasy game apps in the United States and operates in 41 states in some capacity. It ranks in the Top 10 free sports apps on the App Store and has been endorsed by athletes and celebrities.
Underdog Fantasy is legal in North Carolina, but only for daily fantasy sports. Underdog pick'em and draft games are both available in North Carolina, though that's not the case for every state in which it already operates. Underdog sports betting is not legal yet.
It may seem strange that a fantasy sports operator applied for a sports betting license. However, it's been rumored that Underdog Sports is planning to enter the sports betting space soon. In fact, it's been approved for a sports betting license in Ohio already, though it hasn't launched yet.
DFS, or daily fantasy sports, is legal in North Carolina, but it exists in a bit of a grey area. North Carolina has no specific legislation banning or limiting DFS, but it hasn't passed any legislation regulating it or necessarily allowing it either. The NC Lottery Commission dropped prospective fantasy rules from sports betting guidance in 2023.
Underdog North Carolina offers over 30 sports, including NFL and NCAA football, NBA and WNBA basketball, NHL hockey, MLB baseball, soccer, golf and eSports. They even have dedicated social media accounts on Twitter dedicated to NFL, NBA, WNBA MLB, golf, and soccer.
