The state of Louisiana offers both online and in-person sports betting services, providing a wide range of betting options for sports fans.
It is important to practice responsible betting as a sports bettor, including budgeting your bets and knowing your limits. One way to ensure you do not have an issue with sports betting is to take a break when needed.
Self-exclusion is an option that operators offer in Louisiana to help players avoid a potential gambling problem.
The self-exclusion list allows players to cut off access to gambling, including casinos and sportsbooks. The process is simple, but it must be completed in person.
Learn more about the entire process below.
To be added to the Louisiana self-exclusion list, you must fill out a form and visit a specific location, be it a Louisiana State Police office or a Gaming Enforcement Division Location.

After you are signed up, the information you provide is sent to gambling operators in the state. With that information, operators can block you from sports betting services, and you will be excluded from gambling for five years.
You must first serve the full five-year term, and then you can request to be removed from the list. This requires a written request sent to the Board, and a hearing is held, and a written decision from the Board is provided.
If the Board feels that you should remain on the list, they have the right to continue self-exclusion.
Once you are no longer on the list, you are free to access casino and sports betting services in the state.
Once you are on the self-exclusion list, you are banned. You can check with the Board or individual casinos to ensure they have your information if you like.
The self-exclusion list should block you from sports gambling sites in the state. However, you can also speak to the customer support of online gambling sites you frequent to see if there is another option for self-exclusion.
Louisiana only allows players to be excluded for a five-year time frame.
