Legal online and mobile sports betting began in Louisiana on Jan. 28 and Caesars Sportsbook is among the first handful of operators to launch. Caesars joined Bet MGM, Betrivers, DraftKings, FanDuel in being the first to offer legal sports bets outside of a retail sportsbook in Louisana.
Most importantly, Caesars made it in time for the NFL conference championship week and the Super Bowl. Although, the Saints didn’t qualify for the playoffs.
Head coach Sean Payton has left the team. All sad. However, Louisiana is likely to be very interested in NFL betting if it’s like every other state that legalized sports betting.

Caesars going hard for Louisiana market with Superdome, LSU tie-ups
Caesars launched in Louisiana on Oct. 31 by offering retail bets. In addition, the company currently has sportsbooks at Harrah’s New Orleans and Horseshoe Bossier City.
Caesars is all-in on Lousiana. In fact, it secured a long-term naming rights deal on the Superdome and became the official sports betting partner of LSU athletics. The Mannings, the royal family of football in Louisiana are already Caesar’s brand ambassadors.

We can’t wait to offer Louisianans more convenient access to Caesars Rewards through the Caesars Sportsbook app,” said Eric Hession, Co-President of Caesars Digital.
“We’re confident that the Caesars Sportsbook app will offer Louisianans the most competitive odds and the very best in rewards, with every wager earning Caesars Rewards. We’ve seen tremendous interest in legal sports betting since the opening of our Caesars Sportsbooks at Harrah’s New Orleans and Horseshoe Bossier City. Come Friday, through the app, we’ll be able to offer even more opportunities to experience the thrill of sports wagering.”
“From our recent 20-year, exclusive naming-rights partnership to rebrand the Caesars Superdome to our investment to transform Harrah’s New Orleans into Caesars New Orleans with a state-of-the-art Caesars Sportsbook, Louisiana is a special place that we’ve called home for a long time. As sports betting expands, we are grateful to Chairman Johns and his team, Governor Edwards, and Louisiana legislators, our partners at the Saints, Pelicans, The Advocate and LSU Athletics, our Team Members, and our valued guests.”
