The Mississippi Gaming Commission is ready to regulate casino sports betting - and a new state law allows casinos here to play - should the U.S. Supreme Court clear the way next spring.
Rep. Scott Delano, R-Biloxi, believes the sports fantasy law will give Mississippi's casino properties a head-start on those in other states, should the Supreme Court make sports betting an issue for states to decide rather than the federal government.
House Bill 967 never uses the words "Sports betting." Nevertheless, legal experts say there is little doubt House Bill 967, the so-called sports fantasy bill, would legalize casino sports betting and place it under the Mississippi Gaming Commission if sports betting becomes a states rights issue.
Said Jay McDaniel, deputy director of the Mississippi Gaming Commission: "So now if the ban was not an issue, then a licensee could request permission from the MGC executive director to establish sports betting at a casino on events that take place somewhere else. Since the Gaming Control Act only authorizes sports betting at a casino, it would still be illegal at any non-casino establishments."
Cathy Beeding, in-house counsel for Island View Casino in Biloxi, said it is unclear how long it would take for casinos to be up and running for sports betting should the Supreme Court strike down the federal law.
Chance of casino sports gambling raises many questions.
