Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, Caesars Partner To Offer Mobile Sports Betting in North Carolina

CHEROKEE, NC – The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians has partnered with Caesars Entertainment to bring the company’s sports wagering platform online in North Carolina for the launch of legalized mobile sports wagering.
