With the exception of a handful of parishes, mobile sports wagering goes live in Louisiana just in time for the NFL Conference Championship games.  BetUS will continue to be accessible from the state via its offshore location and will also accommodate those parishes that voted against regulating sports betting.

You can begin placing bets at 8 am Friday morning (January 28, 2022).

Agency chairman Ronnie Johns made the long-awaited announcement in a brief written statement but did not specify which companies or apps would be among the first to start taking bets Friday.

“Currently eligible sports wagering operators will be approved to accept mobile bets as early as 8 a.m. Friday morning,” the statement said. “The remaining mobile sports wagering operators are in the process of meeting statutory and regulatory requirements and will be approved once those requirements are met.”

Voters in 55 of Louisiana’s 64 parishes approved sports betting last November, but the measure wasn’t signed into law until June.

DraftKings, Caesars Sportsbook, FanDuel, BetMGM, Betfred and WynnBet are all preparing to launch in the state.  Of those, only Betfred and WynnBet have yet to confirm launch on Friday.

The following nine parishes did NOT approve sports betting:

Caldwell

Catahoula

Franklin

Jackson

LaSalle

Sabine

Union

West Carroll

Winn
