Jan 5, 2022

A Mississippi lawmaker on Tuesday introduced a bill that would allow mobile sports betting for adult residents and visitors within the state's borders.

Rep. Cedric Burnett's House Bill 184 seeks to bring Mississippi in line with other states by allowing gaming operators to “accept wagers placed from sports pool wagering accounts through digital platforms, provided such wagers are initiated, received and made within Mississippi,” according to the text of the bill.
