According to Ronnie Johns, the chair of the Gaming Control Board in Louisiana, there are already 8 casinos within the states that are accepting sports bets. Aside from that, there will be additional 7 more applications that are on pending status right now. Although 5 of the casinos have not yet applied, there are 6 more that will have to submit their paperwork.
Actually, last year, the legislature of Louisiana speedily passed on the appropriate laws in the month of June. With that, the board which controls gambling activities in Louisiana fastly created temporary policies so that the application process will begin. Although there are some delays caused by Hurricane Ida, the lounges were already up and operating in the later month of October. Well, online and mobile sports betting should be highly credited here as the two were also properly working already.
List of casinos accepting sports betting in Louisiana:
- L’Auberge Casino Hotel in Baton Rouge
- Horseshoe Bossier City
- Margaritaville Resort Casino Bossier City
- Boomtown Bossier City Casino
- Boomtown Casino in Harvey
- Harrah’s New Orleans
- L’Auberge Lake Charles Casino Hotel
The software and the technology of the licensed casino to monitor the wagers can generally have a contract with the providers. That way, allowing sports betting could highly be possible.
