Mississippi Sports Betting Apps
Although Mississippi sports betting isn’t yet online, a few favored locations are offering in-person sports betting. One even offers an app, though you have to be at the casino to use it. That said, the tide looks like it’s turning for Mississippi sports betting apps. So, let’s do a quick rundown on what you can expect and how you can bet online.
Legal Mississippi Sports Betting Apps
Mississippi opened sportsbook locations soon after the PASPA was overturned. For those not in the know, that’s the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992. Up until 2018, it was federally illegal to bet on sports in the US. Thankfully, this isn’t true anymore, so several casino gambling locations in MS scrambled to put together a trusted and lucrative sportsbook onsite.
Online sports betting is legal under Mississippi state law. However, due to requirements to be in-person at a land-based sportsbook, no operators have yet launched a mobile or online platform. That said, expect that to change soon.
The historically conservative state looks like it will finally roll out a statewide lottery program in the second half of 2019, which is exciting news for Mississippians at-large. We’ll key you in on who we think might offer MS mobile sports betting, and who has the best rewards.
Who Offers Mississippi Sports Betting Apps?
There are quite a few locations in Mississippi already offering sports betting in-person, and we expect these brick-and-mortar sportsbooks to be among the first to offer an app. The first in the Magnolia State to have a mobile sportsbook, Pearl River Resort – along with their Bok Homa Casino – offers a Mississippi sports betting app for live in-play betting! Unfortunately, since you still need to be on-location, we can’t recommend it as a truly mobile experience.
In the meantime, here’s a quick list of our favorites and their rewards.
Harrah’s Gulf Coast Hotel & Casino
Now, Harrah’s has the benefit of having the Caesars Rewards program behind it, so you can bet that your experience sports betting online will be handled by an industry professional. With decades of customer service experience, Caesars casinos are among the most well-respected in the gaming world, and we expect a comprehensive set of rewards to match when MS sports betting apps start to be released.
The Golden Nugget
At the Golden Nugget, a well-known name among casinos, get in-person sports betting at its beautiful Biloxi location along the Gulf of Mexico. The Golden Nugget 24K rewards program offers a great calendar of bonuses and ways to double your points! Once Mississippi sports betting finally comes online, we’re looking forward to how the 24K rewards program interacts with online players.
Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Biloxi
Now, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Biloxi has a sportsbook offering great seasonal promotions and some of the best rewards we’ve seen offered by a casino – you can expect a bonus almost daily! This operator is definitely number one on our list of operators we’d like to see offer Mississippi sports betting apps.
Play Mississippi Sports Betting Apps
From what we can tell, mobile MS sports betting will be available to play whether it’s an iPhone or an Android device. Again, think of this in terms of accessibility. It makes sense for operators offering Mississippi sports betting apps to give customers as many choices as possible.
When these apps do finally go online, Android users will have to do a bit of extra tapping, as the Google Play store doesn’t allow any real-money gambling apps. Apple, however, allows gambling apps, so get them through the App Store once they launch in MS.
We’re super eager for mobile Mississippi sports betting. Players can expect streamlined apps with competitive odds. The process of installing these apps might seem a little tricky at first. However, as soon as Mississippi starts offering sports betting apps, we’ll give you the rundown on exactly how to start playing.
Look out for the casinos we’ve mentioned above. Likely, they’ll offer the most competitive Mississippi sports betting apps when they launch! And read on below for a list of available MS sportsbooks.
