Ready for some fun? Many gaming enthusiasts know Louisiana as "Las Vegas South."
The comparison to Vegas makes sense given the sheer number and size of Louisiana's casinos, along with all the well-known entertainment provided alongside hot games. But gaming is not just about casinos here. With several horse-racing tracks in the state, the ponies get their fair share of attention, too. Whether you're splitting sevens in Shreveport/Bossier, rolling dice between tee times in Lake Charles, cheering on your horse in Opelousas or testing your luck in downtown New Orleans, you'll have a ball gaming in Louisiana.
