OTB Locations in Louisiana
Louisiana has more to offer than just Mardi Gras and Bourbon Street.
There are over a dozen fully licensed and operational Off Track Betting bureaus throughout the state and many feature, in addition to horse racing, expanded gaming including table games, cards and electronic games. Because most of them are operated by major racetracks in the state such as Fair Grounds, Evangeline or Louisiana Downs, there is a standard of customer service and quality that is held across the board.
The best part about an Off Track Betting facility is the ability to watch and wager on races from across the country while enjoying the comforts of a sports bar atmosphere with quality televisions, food and beverages. Many of these listed Off Track Betting facilities also offer promotions, handicapping seminars and special events.
