Is it Legal to Bet in Mississippi?

Mississippi offers both commercial and tribal locations for sports betting. Tribal casinos do not fall under the umbrella of the state’s gaming board, the Mississippi Gaming Commission.


Legalized sports betting for Mississippi trailed shortly behind Delaware and New Jersey. Although they may have been only the third state to join in the gaming trend, the state set itself apart from the others by becoming the first state outside of Nevada to allow bets on in-state colleges along with professional teams.

Making state history, on August 1, 2018, the Beau Rivage Casino and Resort and Gold Strike Casino Resort took the state’s first sports bets. Following a few short weeks later, 20 of the Mississippi’s commercial casinos were offering sports betting. Two casinos also opened their own sportsbooks.
