Regulations approved for casino sports betting
Sports betting will now be legal at casinos in Mississippi.
The Mississippi Gaming Commission voted Thursday to approve sports betting regulations, which will go into effect in 30 days.
Because the law was already on the books, the commission was able to take quick action on presenting proposed regulations.
Casinos will pay state and local taxes worth 12 percent of the wagers minus payouts. Bets can only be taken in casinos.
