How to sign up for Louisiana sports betting apps

With the launching of Louisiana sports betting apps, users can bet on sports from their phones. No longer will you have to drive to the nearest book to place wagers. The following sportsbook apps will be available to Louisiana players on Friday:

To sign up for any of the above books, download their respective apps from the Apple Store (iOS) or Google Play Store (Android). Each one allows you to create a free account. If you’ve already signed up for DraftKings or FanDuel for their DFS options, signup will be expedited.

From there, you’ll be able to make your first deposit and get rolling. IMPORTANT: Don’t make your first deposit without capitalizing on a wide array of bonuses and promotions, which can be found above.

Be sure to check which parishes offer sports betting. For a rundown of legality and eligibility, check out TheLines page on sports betting in Louisiana.

Which Louisiana Sportsbook Should I Sign Up With?

In short: all of them. Since creating accounts is free, we recommend you sign up for as many books as you’re comfortable doing. Here at TheLines, we hammer the importance of line shopping in order to get the very best price; not every book offers the same odds for every bet.

Most books offer signup bonuses or deposit matches– oftentimes up to $1,000– in addition to offering FREE BETS (or risk-free bets). Bookmark TheLines to stay up to date with all of the best sportsbook promos and offers in Louisiana.

The other benefit for signing up with multiple books is that you can capitalize on more than one signup offer. Depositing money into DraftKings exhausts your eligibility for their signup bonus. Making another deposit with, say, Caesars would allow you to cash in on their signup promo, too.

Since each sportsbook restricts you to one account, signing up for multiple books is a recommended strategy for making the most out of your sports betting experience.

What Information Do Louisiana Sports Betting Apps Ask For?

Signing up for Louisiana sportsbooks is both free and easy. Once you’ve downloaded the sportsbook’s app, open and create a free account. They’ll ask for a bit of personal information to verify your identity, age, and eligibility. This may include:

  • Legal name
  • Street address
  • Birth date
  • Social security number

You don’t have to be located within a legal parish or even the state of Louisiana to create an account, but you must be located in one when placing bets. Do note that the sportsbooks use geo-location software to confirm you’re in a legal parish, so VPNs won’t get around that.

Before deposit, signing up for Louisiana sports betting apps is just like signing up for any other.

Cashing In On Louisiana Sportsbook Bonus Offers

The undeniable best part about signing up for sportsbooks is the oftentimes lucrative bonuses and promotions they offer. There’s thousands of dollars in bonuses and free bets out there with different books. How do you cash in?

First, you’ll want to keep tabs on our Louisiana sports betting page to see the best current offers at every book. Second, be sure to sign up for emails from each operator to be on top of new promotions (we know emails can be annoying, but these are important!). Awareness is the best tool when capitalizing on offers.

Once you’ve seen a promotion you like, it’s time to make your first deposit. Most sportsbooks will accept deposits via:

  • Bank account
  • Credit Card or Debit Card
  • PayPal

Some may offer other vehicles, so be sure to check with each one first.

Now that you’ve successfully signed up for multiple books, made your first deposit, and cashed in on the exciting promos, it’s time to bet! We’re here to be a resource along your betting journey with strategy, tips, and more from dozens of leagues– from the NFL Playoffs to March Madness and this summer’s Triple Crown (plus many, many more).

As always, the most important rule is to bet responsibly. Have a plan and never bet what you can’t afford to lose.
