Louisiana Casinos and Gambling
Louisiana has as many casinos listed as any state except Nevada, but most of them are small. Laws in the state allow many establishments to have up to 50 video gaming machines, so many of the casinos listed on this page aren’t much more than a bar or truck stop with 50 slot machines. The smaller locations won’t generally have traditional slot machines. The machines are poker based. You have to visit one of the larger casinos to play slots.

Louisiana is filled with large casinos and small mom and pop type gambling establishments. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for a big casino environment or a cozier place to play, you won’t be disappointed with your gambling trip to the South.
