The first mover in the Pelican State in terms of retail sports betting is aiming to be among the leaders when online sports betting in Louisiana starts as well. A Betfred Louisiana $150 promo is part of that push.

Betfred Sportsbook is accepting account registrations online through its app and website right now. If you make your move now ahead of the start of online wagering in 55 LA parishes, Betfred will give you a free bet worth $150 to use when that day comes.

Betfred Louisiana $150 promo details

To get started toward your $150 free bet, download and install the app on your Android or iOS device. LA law requires all potential gamblers to be at least 21 years of age. This deal is only for use in LA, so you plan to bet with Betfred elsewhere, just be aware of that fact when you get the free bet.

Another thing to be aware of this offer is a free bet, not free money. There’s a 1x playthrough requirement here. That means you have to successfully wager the $150 before you can withdraw any of that value as actual cash.

When Betfred does go fully live in LA, you’ll have free reign to use that free bet as you like. Put it on a New Orleans Pelicans spread, a New Orleans Saints game total, a prop bet on LSU Tigers football, it’s completely up to you.

It’s not yet clear when Betfred or any other LA online sportsbooks will start taking bets in the 55 participating parishes. This deal will be good until that day. However, the terms of Betfred’s pre-launch offer aren’t going to sweeten if you wait. Thus, there’s no time like the present.

How to get that $150 free bet right now

As long as you’re of age, you’re good to go on this deal. Neither where nor whether you live in LA matters when you’re signing up for the app. It’s true that nine LA parishes voted to keep sports betting illegal within their borders. However, that only applies when you’re actually placing your bets. It doesn’t bar anyone from simply registering an account with a sportsbook.

Doing so is as easy as just following the prompts in the app. Through the process, you’ll only need to provide the sportsbook with some identifying information. This is so it can verify your eligibility to bet on sports in LA. That data includes your:

  • Date of birth
  • Email address
  • Last four digits of your Social Security Number
  • Legal name
  • Mailing address
  • Phone number

After securing your $150 free bet, if you don’t want to wait for Betfred to start taking bets online, you can do so in person at the Paragon Casino Resort near Marksville. That was the first brick-and-mortar sportsbook to launch in LA.

Whether Betfred will be the first brand bettors in LA think of when it comes to online wagering is yet to be decided. At the very least, Betfred isn’t a slouch when it comes to the value of this pre-launch offer.
