Louisiana sports betting: Is legal sports betting available in Louisiana?

No, sports betting in Louisiana is not legal at this time.

Legalization of sports betting was put up for a vote by committee members in 2019, but they struck down SB 153 by a 14-6 margin. In addition, there were several amendments requested in the legislature, but ultimately the groups could not agree on taxation.

Democrat Governor John Bel Edwards reportedly supports legalized sports gambling, but the state legislature is currently a majority Republican, so that’s another obstacle. There are plenty of casinos in the state of Louisiana where you can play table games, slot machines, etc. …, including in the popular New Orleans area. However, sports betting remains an issue for another time.

None.

Retail sportsbooks in Louisiana

As mentioned above, no retail sportsbooks currently exist, but casinos could easily convert space in short order if legalization takes place. For now, a quick trip to Mississippi will have to suffice, as sports wagering is legal in the Magnolia State. Gamblers in the northern part of the state can also cross over into Arkansas for their sports wagering fix.
