As you’ve probably already read, the wait is finally over and Louisiana sports betting is ready to launch.

With officials announcing this week that the first wave of LA betting apps will soon make their online debut, there’s plenty to be excited about. All told, an initial four operators will get the go-ahead to offer betting in the state, with FanDuel one of the biggest names among the likes of BetMGM sportsbook Louisiana.

In this article, we’ll look at what LA bettors can expect when FanDuel Louisiana sportsbook goes live.

When Will the FanDuel Sportsbook Go Live in Louisiana?

The FanDuel LA betting app will – like all of the other approved operators – go live tomorrow.

This means that from 08:00 on Friday 29th January 2022, players in the Pelican State will legally be able to bet at FanDuel Louisiana. As part of its long-anticipated launch, FanDuel LA sportsbook has been offering a pre-registration bonus to players in the state. The good news is, this offer remains available.

What LA Offers Will I Be Able to Claim as A New Customer at FanDuel?

Indeed, providing players are able to register with FanDuel before the cut-off point mentioned above, they’ll still be able to benefit from an early-bird bonus.

This offer will grant players $100 in bonus bets credits to use on the site, with no deposit necessary. All players need to do is sign-up before the app officially goes live.

Beyond that, new customers at FanDuel LA sportsbook will be able to take advantage of a bonus bet worth up to $1,000. To claim it, players simply need to deposit and place their first wager at the site. If they win, great – but if not, they’ll be refunded up to $1,000 in bet credits to use at FanDuel LA.

Once those two great new customer offers have been redeemed, players will be pleased to know they can also benefit from several ongoing incentives. These include bet boosts and bonus bets on selected markets as well as local specials on the Louisiana teams.

Which Sports Will I Be Able to Bet On When FanDuel Launches in Louisiana?

One concern for LA bettors was whether or not sportsbooks in the state would launch in time for them to bet on Super Bowl LVI.

Of course, we now know not only will that be possible, but they’ll also be able to wager on NFL action in the future too. These markets will be available at FanDuel, who also cover other sports including:

  • Basketball
  • Baseball
  • Ice Hockey
  • Soccer
  • Tennis
  • Lacrosse
  • Boxing
  • Mixed Martial Arts

Naturally, many other options are also offered, with these just being some of the most popular. Of particular note is the fact that unlike in other states, college sports are also permitted under LA laws.

As we mentioned above, it seems highly likely that the FanDuel LA betting app will also offer specials on Louisiana teams. With that in mind, make sure you keep an eye on the site whenever the LSU Tigers or the New Orleans Saints are playing. Doing so will ensure you don’t miss out on any enhanced odds.
