Self-Exclusion From Sports Betting In MS
Mississippi was one of the first states to launch sports betting services after the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act was shot down in 2018.
Since that time, the state has built a solid retail sports betting sector. Players can easily travel to gambling facilities and enjoy on-site sports betting. The market offers a wide selection of betting types and sports categories.
To play it safe, operators encourage bettors to learn aspects of responsible gaming, including the self-exclusion program provided in the state. Self-exclusion is a voluntary option for players to remove themselves from the equation.
You are no longer allowed inside gambling facilities by adding your name to the list, cutting yourself off from sports betting for a while.
Get to know the process below so you or someone you love can utilize the program when needed.
