You Lost…

The first year of Legal Sports Betting in Louisiana is in the books – LINK.

  • Louisiana Casinos made $35.8 million off sports bets.
  • Mobile Apps made another $152 million off sports bets.
  • 268 million wagers were made in November 2022 alone.

Paul Harvey used to report on Gambling earnings with the totals and a pithy dig at the reality of gambling. He might say about this report,

“Sports betting made $188 million last year in Louisiana. That means you LOST $188 million last year in Louisiana.”

The only bright spot for Louisiana was the winnings and losing brought in about $26 million in taxes.
