Mississippi Betting Sites & Mobile Apps

Find out everything you need to know about the online betting in Mississippi, including where you can bet and how it works in Mississippi.

In Mississippi, you can bet at retail sportsbooks but not online or via mobile devices. Mississippi is one of the most intrinsically tied states to gambling of all of the more eastern states. The Mississippi gambling industry continues to uphold its water-based gaming traditions, with betting now a part of the offering.

The Hospitality State is one of the growing count of states which has a regulated betting scene, with the Mississippi Gaming Commission overseeing gambling activities. However, while betting is available in MS, wagering in Mississippi is restricted to land-based, licensed venues – of which you’ll find many.

Indeed, sports betting has been legalized in Mississippi since August 2018. However, it comes with a notable caveat – all bets must be placed within the confines of a casino. Mississippi boasts 28 casinos equipped with sportsbooks that offer the opportunity for in-person sports betting. Additionally, a select few of these casinos have developed apps that patrons can use while physically present at the sportsbook.

Can you bet online in Mississippi?

Yes, online betting is accessible in Mississippi, albeit with a unique twist. Unlike traditional online sports betting, where wagers can be placed from anywhere, Mississippi’s approach requires bettors to be physically present at a licensed casino to make use of online betting services. For example, you can freely download apps like the BetMGM Sportsbook or Pearl River Sports app from any location within the state. However, the key distinction lies in that bets can only be placed using these apps when you are physically situated at one of their affiliated casinos.

Mississippi is surrounded by states such as Tennessee and Louisiana allows betting regardless of physical location, so it is a question of time when the regulation will be in place to open up further.

Online Sportsbooks in Mississippi

In Mississippi, you can bet at retail sportsbooks. There are 28 sports betting locations dotted around the state of Mississippi. It’s important to note that numerous casinos in the state operate independently, crafting their unique odds and sports betting offerings, separate from well-known online sportsbook partnerships.
