Mississippi Governor signs bill establishing sports betting
29 Mar 2023
Mississippi’s House and Senate have passed MS HB 606, a bill that will create a task force for studying online sports betting.
In-person gambling at casinos in Mississippi has been around for five years and they are now following in the footsteps of Vermont to get a report before moving forward with online sports betting regulation.
Two commercial casinos in Mississippi offer on-site mobile sports wagering, requiring customers to be somewhere on the property when placing a bet.
These casinos are Beau Rivage in Biloxi and the Gold Strike in Tunica. Both are MGM Resorts properties using the BetMGM Sportsbook app. Tribal casinos also have on-site mobile sports betting, McDaniel said. Off-site mobile sports betting is illegal in Mississippi.
