Louisiana

Louisiana is a melting pot of French, African, American and French-Canadian descendants, reflected in its Creole and Cajun cultures. Bingo has a fascinating history in Louisiana and is played throughout the state at churches, VFW halls and even the many casinos scattered throughout the state. View the list of cities where you can find a bingo venue below.

What are bingo halls?

Bingo halls are places where bingo games are held, and you can join in! Some bingo halls are just that- a business that runs bingo games. Other bingo halls might be multi-purpose, for example they might be part of a casino, a church, or even a community center! Bingo halls often have a few things in common. They will have seats and tables for the players, and are usually away from other noise so that people can hear the bingo calls. In purpose-built bingo halls, there is often a café or diner of some kind that serves food. The bingo caller will be at the front, so everyone can see them as they call.

How does a bingo game work?

When you play bingo in a bingo hall, it can be quite daunting if you’ve never been before! Everyone seems to know what they’re doing, and the regulars certainly take it seriously. Here’s a simple breakdown of what happens during a bingo game. Once the players have taken their seats and readied their cards, the game can begin. The caller will use either a cage or an electric caller to pick numbers at random and shout them out. Players are expected to be very quiet while the numbers are called, so everyone can hear. Players mark off numbers on their cards when they are called. This could be with a special dauber pen, or some bingo halls now have electronic cards that mark for you. Games vary between bingo halls, so make sure you know what you need to win- it could be a line, a pattern, or just a full house. If you daub off the winning pattern, shout bingo to claim your prize! Make sure to shout loudly and raise your hand high- the caller may not hear you if you speak at normal volume! When someone has won, if there are more prizes left to claim, the game will continue. If that is the last prize of the game, there will be a short break before the excitement of the next game starts.

How do I choose a bingo hall in Louisiana?

Selecting a bingo hall can be a tricky choice. The first step is to see which bingo halls are near to you, or near enough that you could reasonably travel there. BingoPort lists bingo halls by state and by city, so you can find venues that are near to your home, your friends, or even your holiday destination! Once you’ve got the selection of bingo halls in the area, it’s time to pick one to try. Luckily, you won’t have to go visit them all to see what they’re about! Check out the BingoPort listing for each hall to see what things they offer, if you can park, what time they open and more. Once you’ve found a bingo hall or two that suit you, the best way to find a favorite is to try them out! Take a buddy and head on down for a few games to see what it’s all about.

What makes a great bingo hall?

There are tons of bingo halls in Louisiana, but what makes a bingo hall the best of the best? That really depends what you love about bingo. If you love making a trip of it, enjoying some slots, and maybe chowing down on a snack while you play, a bingo hall that is part of a bigger casino may suit you perfectly. If you enjoy bingo more knowing you’re supporting a good cause, why not play as part of a charity bingo group that raises money for a church or another charity? Maybe you want a bingo hall with its own parking lot, or one that opens earlier in the day? You can find out everything to help you decide right here in the BingoPort pages.

What you need to know about Louisiana and gambling

Casinos in Louisiana (like a number of other states) are required to be located on bodies of water. There are currently fifteen Louisiana casino licenses for commercial operations. There are five casinos in Shreveport, four in Lake Charles and three casinos in Baton Rouge and New Orleans. Harrah’s New Orleans is the only casino permitted on land and is required to pay $60 million in taxes to the state, annually. The other casinos are located on riverboats. There are also six casinos which are on land on reservations, and these are managed under the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act. Louisiana gambling laws prohibit all forms of internet gambling, aside from online wagering on horses and fantasy sports. It's one of just two states with explicit penalties for players, with a fine of $500 handed down to anyone participating. There are 31 parishes that permit video poker. Local governments receive 20% of the taxes collected, while 2/3 of the taxes collected go to the state. Bingo is operated in Louisiana as both a charitable cause and for commercial purposes.
