Louisiana Sports Betting: Can I Bet on Louisiana College Teams?
Betting on college sports will be 100% allowed in Louisiana, unlike other states such as New Jersey, New York, Illinois and Virginia, to name a few.
Sports bettors can bet at DraftKings, FanDuel, Caesars and BetMGM to start with more sportsbooks coming by football season. The good news is that March Madness will be more interesting with the ability to bet on college teams.
With Caesars' presence in Louisiana, including their naming rights of the Superdome and their exclusive partnership with LSU, you better believe there will be some very aggressive and bettor-friendly promotions coming your way!

Not many people believed that Louisiana college fans could get any more passionate about their teams. Now winning by a certain amount will matter more, though, and we are very excited to feel the energy in Tiger Stadium when Brian Kelly and the boys are driving in the fourth quarter to cover the spread.
Below is a rundown of each sportsbook available at launch in Louisiana and their various promotional offerings.
BetMGM Lousiana will offer new players up to a $1,000 risk-free first bet. New customers can register, deposit and make their first bet without the fear of losing. If the user loses the first wager, BetMGM will refund their stake in the form of site credit. This is a great opportunity to try BetMGM.
Caesars Sportsbook has upped the benefit for new players in Louisiana by offering their royal welcome offer. Get a deposit match up to $1,500 by signing up for Caesars Sportsbook and making your first deposit. This is a great chance to try out Caesars Sportsbook.
FanDuel has been among the most popular sportsbooks in the U.S., due in no small part to their exceptional welcome bonus offers. Players will receive a risk-free bet of up to $1,000. To activate this promotion, register on the site, make your first deposit and place your first real-money wager. If a player loses their first wager, FanDuel will refund their losses in the form of a free bet up to $1,000.
Alternatively, users can utilize a different welcome bonus depending on their preference. FanDuel is offering a bet $5, win $150 on any playoff team to win their matchup promotion. It is important to note that this offer pays cash as opposed to site credit. This unique promotion can be claimed by making a fist-time deposit and placing a $5 wager on the NFL playoffs.
