Sports betting was legalized in Louisiana in November 2020, and East Baton Rouge Parish was one of the dozens of parishes across the state to permit betting on sport.
The first legal sports bet in Baton Rouge actually was put down by the ex-LSU quarterback Rohan Davey at the L’Auberge Casino and Hotel in November 2021. This is where the Barstool sportsbook is still located, although there are a couple more physical sportsbooks in Baton Rouge that are worth checking out.
Alongside the sportsbook at the Belle of Baton Rouge Casino Hotel, DraftKings also has its own physical sportsbook at the Hollywood Casino Baton Rouge.
All of the above physical sportsbooks offer you a great way to bet in Baton Rouge, but there are also six excellent legal betting apps that offer you a slightly more convenient way to play. There is also the legal framework for there to be well over 20 more betting apps in the Pelican State.
These online sportsbooks have all received the required regulation to operate from the Louisiana Gaming Control Board. This means that you can download each of these betting apps and know that you’re getting a good amount of customer protection.
The only things to remember are that you have to be 21 years or over to bet anywhere in Louisiana, and that the app has geolocation tracking software to make sure that you’re betting from one of the accepted parishes – such as East Baton Rough Parish.
