Can I Bet on the Fox Bet App From Louisiana

The Fox Bet app is currently only available in the states of New Jersey and Pennsylvania.  BetUS offers an alternative to those living in Louisiana, including a generous welcome bonus (max bonus $3125).  They have been in business now for 25 years.

FoxBet operates via a legal framework whereby it would only begin operations in Louisiana if and when the state opts to license online sportsbooks.

A free-to-play game with cash prizes for predicting game outcomes of sports games is available to those living in Louisiana, though no real money wagering can take place on the app while in the state.

When visiting either Pennsylvania or New Jersey, Louisiana residents are welcome to register and bet real money on the Fox Bet site.

Should Louisiana decide to license sportsbooks in-state, Fox Bet would have an easy in through its agreement to operate sportsbooks with Eldorado Resorts, a casino group with properties in the state.

BetUS will continue to offer betting on some of Louisiana's favorite teams including the Saints and Pelicans. 

Louisiana lawmakers pushed through legislation that would have allowed sportsbooks to get licensed and set up shop in the state.  That bill fell short in June. 

LegalSportsReport.com explained how it all went down:

After straddling the fence for a few days, lawmakers failed to pass a Louisiana sports betting bill on the final day of the session. Even worse, failure to approve for the daily fantasy sports tax mechanism seems to leave that industry in limbo too.

The initial purpose of H 459 was to establish revenue allocation for DFS — legalized via referendum last year — but a late attempt to stuff it with Louisiana sports betting language went fully awry.

The House previously scuttled a standalone sports betting bill in committee, and bickering between chambers ultimately derailed the train altogether.
