Louisiana sports betting rules – what can I bet on in Louisiana?

Publish Date: 01/27/2022
Fact checked by: Mark Lewis

The landscape of US sports betting has certainly transformed over the last few years. Residents of Louisiana have had to wait a little longer than other states to join in on the action, with retail sports betting legalised in LA in June 2021. Β 

The roll out across the Pelican State continues to gather momentum, with the launch of online sports betting in Louisiana just days away. Here we take a look at where you can bet and what you can bet on, now that gambling is live and legal in LA.

The Louisiana Gaming Control Board, the body that govern and regulate betting within LA state, approved the law which allowed 41 operators to enter the state and launch their operations leading up to the Super Bowl on February 13, 2022. Several bricks & mortar casinos offering sportsbooks opened up in October 2021 and are seen in cities including Baton Rouge and Bossier City. The famous Riverboat casinos also draw in LA bettors, in the popular resorts of Lake Charles and Kenner, with some having plans to move onto dry land now that regulations allow.

What about online betting?

Online betting is not only easy and convenient, cutting out the need to travel anywhere to place a wager, but it also offers a much wider range of available games and markets. With online betting due to launch across Louisiana in early February 2022, there are several big-name betting sites that are vying for your attention. To attract new punters through their β€˜digital doors’ they are offering some sizzling Louisiana sign-up bonuses, with some offering pre-launch registration bonus bets, where bettors just need to open an account to qualify.

Watch this space for all the latest news on the live launch of BetMGM, but there’s plenty more big names on the way too, keep a lookout for Caesars, DraftKings LA and FanDuel, to name just a few.

What else can I bet on in Louisiana?

Daily Fantasy Sports was legalized in Louisiana in 2018 and paved the way for the legalization of betting in its wider sense. DraftKings and FanDuel are the trailblazers in DFS, and who of course are right up there with their online sportsbooks poised to go live in LA in just a matter of days.

Horse racing is a buzzing industry in Louisiana with 4 live racetracks with attached casinos. Controlled by the Louisiana Racing Commission, courses include the famous Delta Downs and Fairgrounds. LA bettors can place bets at several physical locations across the state as well as online via racing betting sites including TwinSpires, TVG, and AMWager.
