After six months of renovations, the new Barstool Sportsbook at L'Auberge in Lake Charles opened Monday, just in time for NCAA's March Madness, featuring 9,000 square feet of food, drinks, TVs and gambling. 

The new sportsbook, which opened after a ribbon-cutting ceremony held on March 14 at 10 a.m., attended by gambling personalities Megan Makin Money and Ben Mintzy.

The sportsbook seats 200 people in a gaming space that offers 20 beers on tap, 45 TVs and a large screen of 25x12. It also offers 19 betting kiosks, 44 slot machines and table games such as blackjack and roulette.

The new sportsbook also allows players to earn mycash and mychoice tier points every time customers bet, whether on football, basketball, hockey, soccer, golf, or any other sport. Professional and collegiate betting options will be available for bettors to choose.

As reported by 7KPLC, Harold Rowland, Vice President and General Manager at L’Auberge Casino Resort, deemed this new betting space as “the coolest gaming space in Louisiana. We’re very excited about what this brings to the property, to the community, and March Madness is a great way to kick it off”. 

Penn National Gaming’s L’Auberge Lake Charles began operating sports betting in November in a temporary location that was replaced by the permanent Barstool Sportsbook which debuted this week. 

Louisiana legalized online sports betting in November 2020. After months of delays, the Louisiana Gaming Control Board announced January 28, 2022 that licensed online operators such as Barstool and its direct competitors in the state could start taking wagers. 

Hollywood Casino Toledo in Ohio has recently announced the expansion of its facility in anticipation of legal sports wagering in the state, set to launch this year. The Penn National-operated facility will include a Barstool Sportsbook for retail sports wagering. 

Ohio Gov. Mike Dewine signed House Bill 29 into law in December, a move expected to help the state compete with neighboring states which have already legalized their markets, including Indiana and Michigan.
