Louisiana has taken a step closer to legal sports betting after Governor John Bel Edwards signed a sports betting bill.
Louisiana Governor signed the daily fantasy sports betting bill, establishing an 8% tax rate for online daily fantasy sports.
After two years, the Louisiana Senate agreed on the tax rate and approved daily fantasy sports betting legislation.
Louisiana Governor has signed the bill and the question of legalising sports betting in the state will be on the November ballot.
Louisiana approved sports betting legislation, while Washington sports betting platform will be live by the end of this month.
Louisiana is next in line to legalise sports betting. Citizens are expected to vote in November, and the proposal can move forward in 2021, or earlier in 2022.
