Sports betting passes in the House 77-24. Huge step for legalization. I give it a 90% shot of legalization now



Zimmer, did this vote spell out the locations? Like brick and mortar or online?

20 casino/racetrack locations

All mobile (Draftkings Sportsbook/William Hill)

And any restaurant/bar locations that have a liquor license with a gaming permit. Louisiana lottery will set up kiosks in those locations. For dry parishes, a food permit will work.

They're basically giving the lottery a cut of the money by allowing them to set these kiosks in bars and restaurants.

Jimmy Ott and Hanny were talking sports gambling today. I caught a few minutes. They seem to think DFS is coming online “any day now”. That’s all I heard....

We've been saying that here since November. Lol

The state representatives keep telling me the "Fall"
The DraftKings & FanDuel lobbyists are saying sooner than later.

Nobody knows tbh. They are probably going off the same person who told me mid to end May. One side is slowing it. The other is catching heat.

re: Louisiana Fantasy Sports Bill passes through Senate
Stefanski said this morning he thinks the geofencing will be up and running by the end of the month if it isn't already.

But didn't give a timeline when Drafkings could accept their first legal wager.

Geofencing will be key for mobile sports wagering because the same technology will be used. That's why the Gaming Commission is taking their sweet arse time.

Everything I'm reading indicates that we have a very good chance to have sports betting set up either before, or at some point during, football season. Full-fledged mobile betting, too.

June 1 is next Tuesday. Are we still reasonably hoping for that?

I'd assume we'll see a good bit of advertising from DK and FD before it goes live. Or do you think we'll just wake up one day and have access?

ETA: I just noticed that I started this thread 1 year ago today. frick, this state can drag its feet.
