Louisiana Voters Approve Daily Fantasy Sports & Sports Gaming But Get Screwed
Back on the 31st of May we released an article applauding how the state of Louisiana was on the right track on Fantasy Sports & Sports gaming issues. 47 of 63 parishes voted to approve Fantasy Sports & Sports gaming this past November; however, lawmakers had to find solutions regarding rules on state tax. They failed! The allotted time to find a solution elapsed leaving residents empty handed. Now legislation is restricted by law and can only consider new taxation every other year. Daily fantasy sports might not be back up for debate until 2021. With lawmakers slow playing approval of tax – any chance of approval had been poison pilled. Louisiana residents… 1st the NFL Refs take you and the New Orleans Saints for a ride during the NFC Championship Game and now this? You guys sure could use a break!
For Louisiana and the other states taking their sweet time getting the right Fantasy Sports / Sports Gaming policies in place, let just take a quick look at New Jersey Sports Betting numbers for the month of May:
- Total betting handle for the month: $318.9 Million
- 82.6% of that coming from online wagers
Just a small opportunity… no rush to get things done. I am certain the speed being organized will continue to win over the popularity vote.
