And it got here in time for the Super Bowl LVI. You can feel the excitement in the air because Louisiana fans of sports wagering have waited a long time for this.

$1,000 in bonus bets? Yes! Here’s how to sign up with Bet MGM

Legal sports betting in Louisiana has gone live and so has BetMGM. Louisianans can download the app to create an account in plenty of time before the Super Bowl kickoff.

What a chance to participate in the most exciting football event of the year — and many other sports events, too.  Louisianans can download the app to create their BetMGM accounts and join in the action with a bonus bet.

To sign up and receive a $1,000 bonus bet:

  1. Click “Play Now” on the banner to open the app. 
  2. Furnish the following information so BetMGM can verify your identity and eligibility:
  • Legal name
  • Date of birth
  • Last four digits of your Social Security number
  • Residential address
  • Email address
  • Telephone number

Agree to the terms and conditions, then you’re all set! Your sign-up bonus will be en route to you.

Bet any amount you want. If you win, you’ll pocket your winnings, just like with any bet. If you lose, BetMGM will refund the whole amount up to $1,000 in the form of site credits, not actual cash that you can withdraw.

But you can use your bonus bet for a chance at real cash. Once a bettor signs up, they have 7 days to use their bonus bet offer. 

Where to bet with BetMGM in Louisiana 

Louisiana has been waiting (and waiting) for the advent of mobile sports betting since a referendum in 2020. Sports wagering fans in the state waited out delays caused by a pandemic, a surprise Gaming Board resignation, and a hurricane.

Now, as of Jan. 28, mobile sports betting is finally legally available in all parishes except in:

  • Caldwell
  • Franklin
  • West Carroll
  • Catahoula
  • Jackson
  • LaSalle
  • Sabine
  • Union
  • Winn

It’s a great moment to be a sports betting fan in Louisiana. Okay, it doesn’t look like the state’s beloved Saints will play in the Big Game this year, but they’ve won it before and they could again!

And besides the Super Bowl, there are so many other sports to bet on. Louisianans seem to love their sports, whether it’s horseracing at the state’s tracks or basketball with the LSU Tigers.

BetMGM expands its reach to Louisiana

BetMGM now adds Louisiana to its roster of states where it offers sports betting. New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania are in the mix, too.

Other mobile sportsbooks in Louisiana include:
