Louisiana pushes to have online sports betting in place by Super Bowl


While betting on sports is currently legal at select locations in Louisiana, placing bets online is still at least a few weeks away, The News Star postponements.

Rumors about online sports betting launching in Louisiana next week are not true, says Ronnie Johns, chair of the Louisiana Gaming Commission. The launch does not have a definite date, and the timeline is being modified daily.

“There is some misinformation that we’re going to launch sports betting next week in conjunction with the NFL playoffs,” Johns says “While we very much would like to do that, it’s definitely not accurate. We are working literally on a daily basis to finalize all of the compliance issues and the technical issues with sports betting. ”

Johns says his goal is to launch online sports betting ahead of the Super Bowl on Feb. 13, but even that remains up in the air. He says the State Police are determining the suitability of the launch, and Johns cannot sign off on the launch until the police send him their recommendation. Read the full story.
