Louisiana Sports Betting Eyes October 1st Launch

Right after Hurricane Ida pushed the launch of Louisiana sports betting back, items look to be on track as soon as far more. Originally slated to roll out in September, all indications are residents will be able to bet on sporting events by mid-October… if not sooner.

In an interview with USA Right now, the Chairman of the Louisiana Gaming Handle Board, Ronnie Johns, stated that the state “Our purpose now is to have them up and operating by Oct. 1st”. Even so, operators from outdoors of the state have not been licensed as of however. The Board hopes to have some at least some of these applications approved inside the subsequent 60 days.

Residents who want to place bets on their mobile devices will have to wait a bit longer. And these who want to bet on kiosks in bars and restaurants might be waiting till 2022. The Gaming Handle Board did confirm that only eight of the states twenty existing casinos have filed for sports betting licenses.

Louisiana sports betting was originally signed into law this year in June.
