DraftKings Mobile Betting set to launch Friday in Louisiana
January 27, 2022
"There have been several DraftKings developments in Louisiana in the last year alone, including the debut of our daily fantasy products and retail sportsbook, and this latest online sportsbook launch is another significant milestone," said Matt Kalish, co-founder and president of DraftKings North America.
Since Louisville introduced its Louisiana retail sports betting in November 2021, the NFL's teams have been the most popular on the local market, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Dallas Cowboys, Kansas City Chiefs, and Los Angeles Rams claiming the most.
An NFL game featuring five teams through Week 17 is the largest winning bet among retail bets in Louisiana, which put a $1.000 bet yielding a $72.000 prize. DraftKings football betting is popular even at the university level, as the 2022 College Football National Championship between Georgia and Alabama on January 10th is the highest-wager event so far.
As in every state, including Louisiana, responsible gaming is an important pillar of DraftKings S.E.R.V.E.S. program.
DraftKings Sportsbook is an active member of the American Gaming Association (AGA) and the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) and has tools such as self-placed player restrictions, identity verification, and geolocation available to ensure everyone has a safe and secure gaming experience.
