Steps are being made quickly to move forward with allowing sports betting to be operated in the state of Mississippi.
On Thursday rules were proposed by the state gaming commission on how to regulate the sport books in Mississippi. There are currently 28 licensed casinos in the state.
Comments on the proposed regulation can be made from the public for the next 25 days. After this time changes can be made, or regulations modified.
On June 21 the commission will meet again. It is expected that there could be a vote made on the regulations. If so, starting the end of July is when sport books can open at Mississippi casinos.
On Monday the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a law that prevented betting on sports in most states.
In 2017 Mississippi changed the state law to approve sports betting along with fantasy sports. This was done in anticipation of the federal law being changed.
The Beau Rivage in Biloxi is owned by MGM Resorts International. The company has been actively making plans in preparations to begin offering sports betting at the Biloxi location. This was done in anticipation to Monday's announcement.
If the proposed regulations are approved, sport betting would only be allowed to be operated at casino locations. 12 percent of the bets would be paid from the casino in taxes to the local and state governments.
Mississippi is only one of several states that have been planning on operating sports betting at their casinos. West Virginia, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania are also planning on passing sports betting regulations soon.
