26/07/2018

The great state of Louisiana, also known as the “Child of the Mississippi” is in the southeast region of the U.S., which is located just east of Texas, south of Arkansas, west of Mississippi and north of the Gulf of Mexico. It’s the 25th most populous state in the U.S., with close to 5 million people. Much of the state’s cultural influences came from French, Spanish, Haitian, African and Native Americans from the 18th century.

The largest city in Louisiana is New Orleans and is well known for its influence in Jazz music and for its annual Mardi Gras events. Even though it’s a key attraction to many visitors, there’s actually more to Louisiana than just New Orleans. You have natural attractions such as fishing and boating in the Gulf of Mexico, or taking a canoe down the Mississippi river and much more.

For those who like to gamble, Louisiana is known to be the “Las Vegas South” due to the number and size of all the casinos there. However, it’s not just casinos the state has to offer, but also its horse-racing tracks. Speaking of which, in this article we’ll be giving you a list of our favorite casinos in Louisiana.

Aside from visiting museums, historical buildings, beautiful gardens and art galleries, you also have a wide offering of casinos you can check out while you’re there. Believe it or not, Louisiana was the 4th state to legalize casino gambling in the U.S. These casinos took place on riverboats, Indian Reservations as well as land based ones.

Today, there’s just about one casino located in every major city, such as New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Lake Charles and Shreveport. In the entire state, there’s over 50 different casinos, with most likely more to come in the future. Keep in mind, that all the gaming machines located at non-Indian casinos are required to pay back no more than 99.9%, and no more than 80%. Also, if you ever win a jackpot of $1,200 or more, the casino will deduct 6% of it, however you can try to get some of it back only if  you report it in your file income tax return.

Other than that, all the casinos in the state offer some of the most popular games such as, blackjack, roulette, craps, video poker, slots, three card poker and Mississippi stud. Aside from these, you have a whole lot of other optional games, such as Spanish 21, poker, baccarat, keno, Texas hold ‘em, bingo and a whole lot more. The required age to be able to gamble is 21.
