The newest kid on the block when it comes to online sports betting, ESPN is gearing up for the official launch of their new online sportsbook and betting app in just a few weeks’ time.

ESPN Bet is currently scheduled to launch sometime around Thanksgiving — just in time for a full slate of holiday NFL football games.

Below, you can find more information surrounding the ESPN Bet launch and what states are expected to support the sportsbook. You can also check out our exclusive ESPN Bet review page for details on what the betting app is expected to look like.

What States Will ESPN Bet Be Legal In?

Currently speaking, here’s the list of states that ESPN Bet is expected to be legal in once the sportsbook actually launches:

Arizona, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia.

ESPN partnered with PENN Entertainment to launch this sportsbook. PENN formally worked with Barstool Sportsbook. Due to this, ESPN Bet is able to quickly and seamlessly launch into all of the states that Barstool was previously operational in.

If you are located in any of these states, you can use our ESPN Bet promo code to sign up and secure a special registration bonus (once the sportsbook is live).

Will ESPN Bet Be Legal in Kentucky?

Kentucky is the latest state to joining the legal online betting scene. They launched in early October.

With this in mind, many Kentucky bettors are wondering if they will be able to access and use ESPN Bet once it launches.

Currently speaking, ESPN Bet is not scheduled to launch in Kentucky around Thanksgiving. However, the expectation is that ESPN Bet will be exploring aggressive ways to move into Kentucky and more soon-to-be legal states.

Will ESPN Bet Be Legal in North Carolina in 2024?

Looking to the future, North Carolina is the next state scheduled to enter the online sports betting scene. According to recent reports, North Carolina is eyeing up a go-live date in early 2024.

It is unclear if ESPN Bet will be going live in North Carolina at this time. However, one can reasonably assume that ESPN will want to launch with NC as soon as possible in 2024.

North Carolina has the potential to be a massive sports betting hub, with diehard college fanbases at Duke and UNC.
