Mississippi is one of the liberal and progressive gambling states with existing options for both land-based and online betting. Thanks to a large bricks-and-mortar gambling industry, the gaming center Tunica, Mississippi is one of the three largest gambling regions in the country – only behind Las Vegas and Atlantic City.
Legal sports betting became a reality when casinos in Biloxi and Tunica started accepting sports bets in August 2018. Currently, all sports betting may only take place at authorized land-based casinos, whether that be in-house or online (on that establishment’s geo-protected app).
Mississippi permits some forms of online betting, most notably Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS), but not yet something in the ballpark of the premier NJ online sports betting sites. Given the state’s open approach to most other forms of gaming, it seems as if it is only a matter of time until Mississippi becomes another online sports betting state.
