Current Mississippi Sportsbook Options

As of June 2020, Mississippi has yet to legalize online and mobile sports betting. House Bill 172, mentioned in the table above, is aiming to change that this year. If the bill passes mobile sports betting would be legal throughout Mississippi. As we stand today, Mississippi residents can only bet on-site at any of the states regulated sportsbooks.
