Unless you’ve been living on another planet, you can’t fail to have noticed that online sports betting was legalized in the state of Louisiana during last fall. Since then, a number of physical betting establishments have opened up across the Pelican State and the long-awaited launch of mobile sports betting is finally over, as it went live on January 28, 2022.
So, here we take a look at what residents of the Big Easy have to enjoy in their back yard.
When gambling was legalized across Louisiana last year, bricks and mortar casinos were the first operators to open up. Today, there are over a dozen casinos in New Orleans City, so LA bettors have a great choice if they wish to physically join in on the action. However, if you want to place a sports bet, only some of these casinos offer sportsbooks in addition to the traditional casino slots and games.
The two most popular casinos with Sportsbooks in New Orleans are Harrah’s Casino and Horseshoe Casino, where bettors can visit the Caesars sports desk to place a wager on their favorite sports team. These resorts offer punters all the thrill of real-life live betting, as well as top class hotel, dining and drinking facilities.
Yes! The wait may have seemed endless, but no longer is online sports betting in LA a pipe dream and you don’t have to travel to join in on the action. On January 26, 2022, the Louisiana Gaming Control Board gave six sportsbook operators the green light to launch their sports betting platform online. In such a competitive industry, each has been promoting their own early registration sign-up bonuses to attract New Orleans bettors to open an account. The only requirement is that you have to be 21 years or older, and be physically present within a legal parish of Louisiana to play – not just within New Orleans of course. So, who are the super six sportsbooks you can place a bet with right now?
If you are more of a horse racing bettor then you can experience the thrill of the race track at Fair Grounds Race Course & Racino, located in New Orleans. Watch the live racing, have a bet on track or bet online via apps like TwinSpires.
Whether you like to bet on the NFL, MLB, NBA or wager on the LA college sports market, it has never been so easy to start your betting journey in New Orleans.
