Louisiana gambling law is an odd mix of permissive and restrictive statutes. Other than online and land-based sports betting, very nearly all forms of gambling popular in the U.S. are present in some form in Louisiana, and crystal-clear written regulations outline what is and isn’t legal. Video Poker Laws are cutting-edge and the state lottery system is popular.
With its warm climate, Louisiana is home to a variety of legal casino gambling options, from slot machines at race tracks to full-fledged commercial casinos, riverboat casinos, and tribal resorts, making it one of the nation’s prime locations for a gambling vacation․
You can now soon add a sports betting vacation to that list after the voters in 56 of Louisiana’s 64 parishes voted “Yes” in the referendum on Presidential Election Day in November 2020 to legalize sports betting
Louisiana’s 14 riverboat casinos and dozens of other commercial and tribal properties draw in millions of tourists to the state each and every year.
