As of February 2019, Louisiana has not legalized sports betting. A House bill was introduced in 2018 to authorize “additional games and sports betting at eligible live horse racing facilities” in the state. The new legislation, which was introduced in March 2018, was narrowly tailored and would only have allowed sports betting at the small number of land-based racinos already operating in the state of Louisiana. The Louisiana bill did not move forward during the state’s legislative session.
Therefore residents of Louisiana must either wait or join an offshore site such as Bovada if they want to wager on NFL games. At least until the bill is passed. Not recommended by us. Play legal!
