Global Gaming Firm to Assist with Launch of Sports Betting in N.C

September 1, 2023 | Lottery News

RALEIGH, NC (August 31, 2023) – Gaming Laboratories International, a leader in testing and certification in the gaming industry, will assist with sports betting regulation in North Carolina.

The North Carolina State Lottery Commission hired the consulting firm this month to assist with the launch. The firm will support the commission in several key areas of operations, including rule-making, licensing procedures, development of an audit program, and risk control.

In the past year, GLI has assisted Massachusetts, Vermont, and Kentucky, in starting sports betting in those states.

The hiring of GLI is the commission’s latest step as it continues moving forward with the substantial efforts required to responsibly license and regulate sports betting, horse racing, and pari-mutuel wagering on horse racing.

The new Sports Wagering and Horse Racing Wagering law gives the commission up to a year − June 14, 2024 − to prepare for wagering. The commission’s goal, however, is to make sure wagering on sports and horse racing gets up and running in an effective and appropriate manner as soon as possible.

In other sports betting developments, the Commission has posted a Request for Proposal for an Enterprise Regulatory System that will allow potential licensees to apply for a license online and manage licensing and regulatory requirements and structures throughout the life of a license. Responses are due by Sept. 6.

Updates on sports betting and horse racing wagering are posted on the commission’s sports betting Web page at
