The new laws only allow for on-site retail sportsbooks, with no provisions for mobile betting.

There is another gambling reform bill in the works that could address online gambling, but local media sources claim that will not move forward until comprehensive research is completed.

Several southern states have now legalised gambling on sports, with North Carolina joining the likes of Mississippi, Arkansas and Tennessee.

NC also adds to a growing list of east-coast states with sports betting that includes Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, New York and New Hampshire.
