Hope for Expanded Mobile Betting

At present, those in Mississippi may only bet from their mobiles while inside a casino that has a partnership with a licensed live online casino. However, in January, bill HB 774 was introduced and it has the potential to allow mobile betting anywhere within the state.

The bill allows for 26 licenses, which must be linked to land casinos in the state, and it sets tax at a minimum of 12%. The tax would be calculated based upon a sliding scale with operators that do less business paying less tax.

However, the bill is currently in limbo. It passed the House on 1 February and then moved to the Senate on 5 February. It was assigned to the gaming committee on 27 February. Tuesday 2 April, was the last day on which a committee could pass out a bill that did not originate in its chamber therefore, to keep the bill alive, the Mississippi Senate Gaming Committee had a two-minute meeting on 2 April.

There is still a chance the bill will make progress; however, today, 11 April, is the deadline for the full Senate to act on non-revenue bills that originated in the House.
