Mississippi looking at online gambling

April 14, 2014

Mississippi could become the new gambling state in the US. This would be the fourth US state considering online gambling and sports betting as many other states have done before. However, in order for Mississippi to evaluate the pros and cons of online gambling and sports betting, the state has specially created a working party to provide the government with studies about the viability of this new industry.

Richard Bennett, chairman at the House Gaming Committee, has been the one responsible for this task force of experts who will bring us an answer about the future of the online gaming industry in Mississippi. The first encounter for this task force will be held Biloxi during the Southern Gaming Summit on May. The group has been specially created to fill the need of many players in the state that cannot use one of the safest markets, globally speaking.

Mississippi does not want to lose this opportunity as online gambling and sports betting are providing states with a great deal on taxes. The task force will commence with an evaluation on the three states that have already regulated the online gambling and sports betting market, a successful advance for the United States. Delaware, Nevada and New Jersey are still struggling with the opening of the online market as groups and coalitions (such as the one created by casino mogul Sheldon Adelson to ban online gambling and sports betting), are still opposing it.

Bennett said: "I'm looking for an unbiased study. It will be more comprehensive than anything I have seen on the subjects and I envision other states using the information that is collected; a number of legislators from the Coast and other areas came to me and asked me to add that to it. It will be interesting to see what other states have done. Our most important role in this task force will be advisory, with data and analysis about Internet gambling. We will not be making any recommendations regarding any new legislation or regulations."
