In the world of sports betting, everything circles around the odds. These odds are indicative of the probability that an event will occur, and can differ from book to book. Therefore, it is imperative that you do your research and find a reputable online sportsbook with a history of treating customers fairly and addressing customer service issues expeditiously. In addition, it’s also important to investigate the house rules (which will differ from shop to shop) and read independent/non-partisan reviews of each sportsbook you consider using.
With the legalization of sports betting in Louisiana, several companies will be vying for your attention. For instance, Boyd Gaming is in a unique position with its five retail casinos and will have a significant presence in the market as one of the state’s first six mobile sportsbooks. Additionally, the company’s properties will offer a new kiosk from IGT called the CrystalBetting Terminal that allows patrons to place bets at the casino or bar with a swipe of an account card. It also provides a personal, 27-inch touchscreen and access to online wagering and live wagers.
