Christmas is already over, but Louisiana’s sports lovers are still in the festive mood as the very first sportsbook launch in the history of the Bayou State happened last Friday. Yes! FanDuel is now available in Louisiana.
Since the legalization of sportsbooks in Louisiana, betting fans had been waiting with bated breath for its first sportsbook. But, to add to the excitement, there was a total of six LA sportsbooks launched simultaneously on the 28th of January. So, in addition to FanDuel Sportsbook, Barstool Sportsbook, BetMGM Sportsbook, BetRivers Sportsbook, Draftkings Sportsbook, and Caesars Sportsbook also took their place in Louisiana’s betting world. So, to everyone pondering on the question, “Is FanDuel legal in Louisiana?”- Yes, of course!
Along with the other five bookies, FanDuel is legal in every parish of the Bayou State that approved betting. But unfortunately, there only 55 out of 64 parishes that have authorized LA sportsbooks. That is, nine parishes are out of the game for now. So, as long as you’re not in Franklin, Jackson, LaSalle, Sabine, Union, West Carroll, Caldwell, Catahoula, or Winn, you can enjoy gambling on your favorite sports.
FanDuel started in a small backyard in Texas, where the founding team of FanDuel used to brainstorm their fantasy sports ideas. The intense urge to innovate fantasy incorporating a test of sports knowledge and enabling the players to win anywhere anytime rooted the FanDuel concept. Today, FanDuel is one of the largest in the multibillion-dollar entertainment industry.
Being one of the most popular betting sites in the US, FanDuel presents betting markets in a wide variety of sports like Soccer, Basketball, Tennis, Golf, NFL, MLB, etc., for their users, in addition to a fantastic DFS platform. Betting on these sports is even more thrilling, with various types of wagers available, including Spreads, Moneylines, Teasers, Totals, Props, and Live bets. Also, FanDuel has a fantastic interface with seamless and intuitive navigation. Nevertheless, best of all is the set of exciting FanDuel promotions and rewards, including the Fanduel Louisiana welcome.
There is an extravagant FanDuel Louisiana welcome bonus that offers risk-free first bet up to $1000. You do not need any promo code to claim this bonus. The $1000 risk-free bet is applied automatically to the first bet you make after your first deposit. So, if your bet loses, within 72 hours, the amount wagered will be credited back to your account in the form of free bets. This is a remarkably similar to the DraftKings LA sign up offer, which we also think is worth taking a look at.
To signup on FanDuel Sportsbook, go to the website and enter the sportsbook section. Then, select join. Choose your location and provide location access when asked. Next, enter your email, username, password, and referral code (optional). On the following page, give personal information like address, date of birth, and SSN to register your account in FanDuel. Now all that’s left is making your first deposit and placing a bet on any game of your choice.
