Coushatta Casino Resort’s Off-Track Betting Parlor Now Open

August 10, 2012

Kinder, LA—On Wednesday, August 8, 2012, at 12:00 noon, Coushatta Casino Resort’s newest gaming amenity began accepting wagers in its off-track betting parlor, located in Gumbeaux’s Oysters & Sports Bar. Guests can now watch and wager on racetracks from coast to coast, including Saratoga, Del Mar, Louisiana Downs, Evangeline Downs, and Gulf Greyhounds. Programs are just $1 per track and players will receive complimentary coffee and soft drinks.

The first players to place wagers were Jeff Racca of Leesville, Louisiana, Gardner Thomas from Anacoco, Louisiana, and Tony Ely from Houston, Texas. Racca was delighted, saying, “This is great! My wife likes the slots but I like the horses. Now I can watch them run as much as I want!” Racing patrons have their own television monitor to keep an eye on their favorite tracks plus there are big screens throughout the room and additional seating in Gumbeaux’s.

Casino Director of Marketing Phil Ziegler stated, “We are proud to offer the thrills and exciting of off track betting. We’ll be offering all the popular tracks both locally and from across the country!”

Coushatta Casino Resort is located in Kinder, Louisiana on US Highway 165 (I-10 exit 44) and features over 2800 slots and more than 70 table games including live poker, plus live bingo and off-track betting. Phone 1-800-584-7263 for more information, or visit the website at
