Sports Betting in Mississippi – 2023
In October 2021, online sports betting became legal in Mississippi and BetMGM MS Sportsbook is taking bets… But, there’s a catch!
You can register from anywhere in Mississippi to claim your $1000 signup bonus!
BUT, you must complete the KYC process and place your bets in person at either Gold Strike Casino Resort (Tunica Resorts) OR Beau Rivage (Biloxi).
Online Casino in Mississippi
The Magnolia State has actual casinos that you can go to and place sports bets in, and try slots and card games. You must be at least 21 years of age to enter a casino or buy lottery tickets in person from a licensed retailer.
Online casino wagering in Mississippi is illegal, you can’t play slots and table games this way. State law doesn’t regulate this form of gambling over the internet. If you want to play card games or slots, then there are around 35 land (or water) based casinos in the State. Due to Mississippi state laws, many of these are riverboats actually floating on the great river itself. Rough estimates suggest that there are about 36,800 slots and gaming machines, and nearly 1,000 table games across all casinos here. Biloxi is the city in Mississippi with the most gambling sites in it.
Online Poker in Mississippi
In Mississippi, online gambling on poker is neither regulated nor legalized. That means the only way for you to play the popular card game safely is to visit one of the licensed casinos in the Magnolia State. As stated, there are about 35 of these which hold a license from Mississippi state authorities. At the Ameristar Casino in Vicksburg, for example, there is a ten-table poker room on this riverboat casino. Tournaments are regularly held aboard this floating center if you want to show how good your poker face is.
Daily Fantasy in Mississippi
The state of Mississippi legalized Daily Fantasy Sports wagering, so you can play and bet on it online. Leading providers of DFS games including Yahoo, FanDuel, Fantasy Draft, and DraftKings all have a presence in the Magnolia State as a result. These accept players from Mississippi. The DFS betting available comes in the form of parimutuel wagers on games relating to picks from major leagues like the NBA, NFL, and NHL, plus college sports organized by the NCAA. This is a progressive state from an otherwise quite conservative state over gambling.
Esports in Mississippi
As esports betting in Mississippi hasn’t been legalized at this time, no sites are available. With no markets on esports games like League of Legends and Counter-Strike offered in the Magnolia State without authorization from governing bodies, you can’t wager on them legally here right now.
Lottery in Mississippi
While lottery wagering in Mississippi is legal, you can’t do it online. To play in popular games including Cash 3, Mega Millions, and Powerball, you’ll need to buy lottery tickets from a licensed retailer. There are also various Scratch-off games you can play. You can check the results of draws online too.
