Sports betting starts today at One Louisiana Casino
Sports betting starts today in a casino of Louisiana. Paragon Casino Resort starts the activity today. Marksville Casino partners with Betfred Sports to open the betting house.
The operation will be called The Draft Room at Paragon Casino Resort – the first of its kind in the state. It should open at 3 p.m. Wednesday afternoon.
Paragon GM Marshall Sampson Sr says:
Our partnership with Betfred Sports marks a new chapter for Paragon, which has always been a source of pride for Marksville and the people of Louisiana. With this new partnership, I hope visitors from all over the region will have the chance to experience it for themselves. Together, we deliver a first-class sports betting platform and site that will make Paragon Casino Resort the perfect place to bet and watch games in Louisiana.
Paragon is an Indian casino and they don’t have to go through the same licensing process. We have no jurisdiction over them. When Louisiana law was passed for sports betting, they could legally open. We are working overtime to complete the licensing process for casinos in the Town of Shreveport Bossier Marlet.
Margaritaville, El Dorado, Horseshoe, Harrah’s Louisiana Downs, Sam’s Town and Boomtown are eligible for sports betting operations in the Shreveport Bossier area.
