Sports Betting Regulation & Laws in Mississippi

Mississippi has had legal mobile sports betting since 2018. That’s the good news: the bad news is that you must be in the vicinity of a retail sportsbook to place bets on your smartphone. 

However, a new Mississippi sports betting bill – HB 997 – could change all that. Under the new proposals, full sports betting would be legalized in Mississippi. Every casino would be allowed one sportsbook license to run an app that is accessible from anywhere within MS borders. 

Currently, HB 997 won’t be approved in 2022 after some MS casino operators opposed the move. Land-based casinos are worried that allowing bettors to place wagers at home means they will lose money at retail sportsbooks.

However, since Mississippi legalized sports betting, neighboring states such as Louisiana, Tennessee and Arizona have all made sportsbooks legal. If Mississippi sees gamblers travel across state borders to place mobile bets, it could speed up a change of law there.
