What to Know About Gaming in Mississippi

There are a few things you need to know before you start gaming in Mississippi. As with any casino in the United States, you need to be 21 years of age or older to sit on the casino floor. The only exceptions are made when the casino is located on tribal land, at which point the age requirements may vary slightly, and notice will be posted in visible locations. Further, Bovada is the only online platform where residents of Mississippi ages 21 and older can legally gamble online.

When it comes to sports betting, Mississippi is one of the few states in the U.S. that allows sports betting at retail locations. While many states allow online betting, the online gambling restrictions in Mississippi extend to sports bets, as well. For this reason, you’ll find that casinos throughout the state have tables where you can place bets on just about every sporting event.
