The Louisiana Gaming Control Board is currently verifying applications from 13 land-based casinos for operating on-site sports betting.

There’s no clear start date for online sports betting because the board has to vet all of the sportsbooks. However, pre-registration is now open for Louisiana Sports Betting! New players can earn up to $100 in site credits on launch day at FanDuel!

LA Online Slots and Table Games

Some online gambling in Louisiana is legal, but not online casino games.

At land-based casinos, riverboat casinos and racinos you can legally play games of chance for money. There is also pari-mutuel racing, a lottery, and poker.

Where Are We With Online Casino Games?

After Louisianans overwhelmingly supported the legalization of sports betting, the state is likely to introduce online casinos. As of now, though, there is no online casino legislation and none on the horizon.

But with land-based casinos expanding and online sports betting regulated, roulette and slot machines could soon be legitimized.

For example, Caesars Entertainment operates Harrah’s New Orleans Casino. The brand has several other casinos across the state and even offers online casino games in other states.

Another successful brand that offers internet gaming is Penn National Gaming which owns Hollywood Casino in LA.


At the moment, you cannot online casinos. But, you can bet on college basketball, college football, NFL, MLB, and others in various local casinos.

Later, these casinos will start offering online sports betting. Meanwhile, you have to wait a little longer before the state legalizes online slot machines and table games.
