Mississippi

In 2016, Gov. Phil Bryant signed fantasy sports bill S 2541 into law, bringing regulated DFS to the state. However, the law was only a temporary measure, and repealed itself on 1 July 2017.

On 13 March 2017, Gov. Bryant signed H 967, a more permanent solution to daily fantasy sports. The bill, which passed both the House and Senate with ease, features a licensing fee that costs $5,000 over three years, outlines consumer protections and puts the Mississippi Gaming Commission in charge of oversight.

Very quietly, Mississippi also adapted the daily fantasy sports bill to remove any language that was problematic for sports betting going forward, making the process more seamless once the U.S Supreme Court made its decision to abolish PASPA in May 2018. In turn, on 1 August, Mississippi became the fourth state with active legal sports betting when MGM opened sportsbooks at Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi and Gold Strike Casino in Tunica. Sam’s Town, Horseshoe, Pearl River and IP Casino quickly followed suit.

As written, current laws limit gambling to those physically present in a licensed casino. Electronic sports betting is permitted, but only if conducted on-site. No mobile or online wagering can take place off the grounds of a casino.
