Louisiana sports betting kicked off in October when retail casino and sportsbook locations started offering odds on major sports. Online sports betting will follow; it could launch as soon as January.
If you’re a sports fan, you have ample opportunity to dive right into the sports betting action in Louisiana. Here’s how you can get in on the betting action in Louisiana.
Nothing can match the thrill of watching a game live and in-person (more on that later). But the atmosphere of a packed sportsbook during a primetime game certainly comes close.
If you’re looking to get in on Louisiana sports betting right this second, retail sportsbooks like Caesars, provide the easiest way to do it. There are nine retail sportsbooks already open in Louisiana, and more are on the way. Each sportsbook has state-of-the-art sports betting tech, plus food and drink and massive TV screens. Catch the right game, and you’ll probably be joined by a crowd of fellow fans who are also hankering to get a piece of the betting action.
Combine the betting options with the camaraderie of Louisiana sports fandom, and you’ve got an easy way to get invested in the action and maybe even win a bit of money.
Once Caesars launches its sportsbook in the Caesars Superdome, it’ll be hard to beat that prime location and proximity to the Saints’ home turf. Whether or not you have tickets to the game, the Caesars Sportsbook at the Superdome promises to be a hub for LA sports fans, replete with unique fan experiences and plenty of betting kiosks. Bring your buddies and enjoy the game in style.
Though sports betting online isn’t yet live in Louisiana, it’s expected to launch as soon as the first week of January.
Caesars Sportsbook Louisiana is just one of the many online sportsbooks expected to launch in Louisiana in the coming weeks, so you’ll have your pick of apps. In addition to Caesars, expect to see BetMGM, DraftKings, FanDuel, and at least a dozen others in 2022.
When you’re watching with friends, you can bet the same side (Saints moneyline, of course) and amp up your investment. Or, if you want to spark some friendly competition, bet against your friends and hope for the best.
If you’ve got friends who haven’t yet signed up for Louisiana sports betting apps, you’re in luck. Many sportsbooks, including Caesars, have a refer-a-friend bonus. Send your friends your unique link, and if they sign up and deposit, you’ll each get free credits to use on whichever game you choose. Check the terms and conditions; some bonuses require a certain deposit threshold to be met before you’ll receive the bonus.
