Mississippi State Gaming Commission proposes rules to govern sports betting
The race to begin legalized sports betting has begun in Mississippi.
Today, the state gaming commission proposed rules to govern sports books at casinos statewide.
The commission could vote on the rules at its next scheduled meeting on June 21st which means casinos could start taking bets in late July.
Under the proposed rules, casinos would pay 12 percent of the wages minus the payouts, bets could only be taken in casinos.
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday struck down a federal law that bars gambling on football, basketball, baseball, and other sports in most states.
