Sports Betting Now Legal in Tunica Casinos

Tunica-goers (as well as all Mississippi casinos) can now gamble on more than just the traditional slots and cards. A variety of sports are now legal “game” for gambling after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down an old ban restricting sports betting. 
Mississippians can now place wagers on their favorite sports directly inside a casino, which includes professional, collegiate and Olympic games. The ruling will go into effect on July 21, just in time for the start of football season.
In May, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a federal law of regulations that barred gambling on football, basketball, baseball and other sports. In 2017, however, Mississippi sports betting was legalized under a daily fantasy sports law.
The Mississippi Gaming Commission Public Affairs officer Allen Godfrey told Hottytoddy.com how the Tunica market will operate holds true for the rest of the casinos in the state.
“The corporate casinos—the Pins, MGM and Caesars—that have a physical presence in the model will handle their sports book a little different than those who don’t have it and will have to get a third-party operator to provide equipment for them,” he said. “It’s really not a one size fits all. You’re going to have some casinos that have discussed expansion or renovation. In addition, some have looked at putting a couple of TVs into a space that is not being used and adding machines in there.”
Hottytoddy.com reached out to Ole Miss Athletics for comment but did not receive a reply as of Monday, June 25.
