The Pelican State has had a long history with gambling, from its creation by French settlers over 200 years ago who opted to build casinos rather than churches.
You will find a very good selection of casinos in the region; the establishments are mixed and not limited to the four casinos that are based on tribal ground, with around 20 riverboats and four horse racetracks that been upgraded to racinos.
The the only official state-sanctioned casino is the Harrah's in New Orleans, which opened its doors back in 1999 with the games you would expect to see such as roulette, blackjack and other classic table games along with video slot machines and poker rooms coupled with great live entertainment throughout the year.
Access to sportsbook betting is not yet permitted in the state but with the region's easygoing nature towards gambling and the powers that be keeping a close on eye on the changes that are currently happening in New Jersey and other progressive states, it is hoped that during 2019 lawmakers will seek to adjust this.
