Louisiana Sportsbook Bonus Offer FAQs

Can I claim more than one bonus offer?

Yes. We recommend downloading multiple sportsbook apps in order to take advantage of several bonuses. This helps to add more money to your bankroll, and it also allows you to shop for the best odds for your bets. Keep in mind that some promos have limitations, so be sure to read the terms and conditions when signing up.

Can I claim mobile bonuses in person?

Generally, bonus and promotional offers are available only when registering online. Many offers require bettors to create accounts on mobile apps and deposit money into their accounts before qualifying for the offer. Because of this, claiming sports betting bonuses at retail sportsbooks is not very common. However, be sure to read the terms and conditions for each offer to see if claiming a bonus in person is a possibility.

What is bonus abuse and how can I avoid it?

Bonus abuse refers to instances where you use a sportsbook’s bonus in a way it’s not intended. For example, this includes opening an account at one sportsbook, claiming the one-time free bet, then opening a new account at the exact same sportsbook and using a free bet on it again.

In general, you can avoid bonus abuse simply by treating bonuses as special offers and not opportunities to get tons of cash from an operator. It is best to create just one account for each sportsbook to keep things simple. If an operator suspects you of bonus abuse, you may be banned from betting on the app.

How old do I have to be to claim mobile sportsbook bonuses in Louisiana?

You have to be 21 years of age or older in order to participate in any gambling activity in Louisiana.

Can I use free bets to bet on college sports in Louisiana?

Yes. Some states, like New Jersey and Illinois, place heavy restrictions on collegiate sports wagering for games that either take place in-state or that involve in-state college teams. Louisiana will not be one of those states.
