Silver Slipper Casino opens sports betting

The Silver Slipper Casino in Bay St. Louis officially opened their sports book today.

Many people filled the sports book, excited for the long-awaited moment of the first officials sport bet at the Silver Slipper. Silver Slipper General Manager John Ferrucci says they’re excited to welcome a new fun amenity to the casino that will not only bring in more guests from Mississippi, but Louisiana as well.

Former Saints quarterback Bobby Hebert attended the event and made the very first bet which was on the Saints to win the Super Bowl. “To be a part of the gaming now that’s gonna come about in Mississippi. It’s about time. I think people have more interest maybe when they have a little corner in the game and it could be not even dealing with the Saints, but I think that’s the interest there where, ya know fantasy football, and now you’re bringing gaming. I mean, it just helps to grow the NFL.”

Ferrucci says sports betting is now giving people who may have never made bets before the opportunity to do so. He says he’s looking forward to seeing some new faces at the Silver Slipper.
