Fortunately for sports bettors, Louisiana has a few choices when it comes to legal gambling sites. Aside from the obvious, the state is also home to two of the biggest sports leagues in the country, which means plenty of opportunities for a betting junkie. The aforementioned New Orleans Saints and LSU Tigers are favorites for bettors, but it’s not uncommon to see a fanboy or fangirl backing their team in the Citrus Bowl.
The first online sportsbook to hit the Louisiana market is a bit of a rarity. However, the first brick and mortar sportsbook in the state, Betfred, does have a sportsbook at the Paragon Casino Resort in Marksville. This establishment has over 100 televisions and self-serve kiosks, so you don’t have to leave the premises to get in on the action.
There are actually a number of online casinos and sportsbooks that cater to Louisiana bettors. The most popular options include Betfred and FanDuel. A number of smaller outfits are also in the running for Louisiana bettors’ affections.
The best way to determine which site is for you is to take a look at their respective promotions and rewards. Fox Bet has a nice looking rewards program, but the company does not offer anything as exciting as the ones mentioned above. The sports betting aficionado should also check out the offerings at Caesars and BetMGM, which offer a variety of wagering options, including mobile. For those who want to bet from the comfort of their own couch, Betfred also offers a sportsbook at the Draft Room bar and restaurant.
