Gaming experts on sports betting in Mississippi
This morning one of America’s leading gaming experts, Thomas Shepard, spoke to the Gulf Coast Business Council about the legalization of sports betting in Mississippi. According to the gaming attorney, the landmark ruling could create immediate economic impact. He says Mississippi could have a regional monopoly when it comes to sports betting. The gaming commission has already started to put regulations into place. “They will use what’s known as geo-fencing which is technology used to ensure that an activity can only take place within the confines of a physical location. It will be Wi-Fi cell service available at the property, but it will be geo-fenced so that the betting cannot take place anywhere but right on the property itself.” The commission could vote on the rules at its next scheduled meeting on June 21st which means casinos could start taking sports bets sometime in late July.
