Jackson Square Lousiana BetRivers Sportsbook 250 Offer.

Due to Louisianans’ famous reputation for cooking seafood, no one knows more about clams than residents of the Pelican State. BetRivers Louisiana has its own take on that legacy as it launches in the state, offering each new bettor in LA up to 250 “clams” of their own.

New users who sign up for BetRivers Sportsbook now can get a match of their first deposit, dollar-for-dollar, up to $250. There’s no better time to try out the app with your bonus funds than the NFL conference championship Sunday, either.

There are several great things about the advent of Louisiana online sports betting in most of the state. For new bettors, though, it’s hard to argue that promotions like a 100% match of your first deposit up to $250 aren’t the absolute best part.

All you need to do in order to get in on this deal is get the app, sign up for an account, and decide how much you are going to deposit. Of course, to be eligible, you have to be at least 21 years of age and not have an active account with the sportsbook.

If that’s you, get the app on your smartphone, sign up for an account, and decide how much you want to deposit. BetRivers will give you site credit equal to the value of that first deposit up to $250.

So, if you put in $250 in real money at first chance, you’ll not only have that but another $250 in site credit to wager with for Sunday’s games. It’s important to note that the site credit isn’t actual cash. You have to successfully wager that credit before you can withdraw any of it as winnings.

The AFC and NFC championship games on Sunday are a great opportunity to try to do just that. Even if you lose your bets using the credit, you won’t really be out of anything. You need to make sure you’re in a good position, though.

Getting ready for Sunday’s games

One more important notice is that online sports betting is only legally available in most of the states as opposed to statewide. Last November, voters in nine parishes elected to keep sports betting illegal in their neighborhoods.

If you live in one of them, you can still bet on sports on the BetRivers app if you’re otherwise eligible. You’ll just have to travel to one of the 55 parishes in the state where betting is legal before you actually submit your betting slip on the app.

All your other business, signing up for accounts, depositing funds, browsing lines, and withdrawing winnings, you’re good to do from anywhere. As you’re browsing the lines for Sunday’s games, it won’t hurt to gather some more intel on the contests. Here’s some recommended reading:

Regardless of how you choose to use your site credit, it’s nice to play with house money. With BetRivers, you could have up to $250 of house money to ease into Louisiana sports betting.
