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.
The only option for self-exclusion in the state is through the Mississippi Gaming Commission. The individual must appear in person and follow the steps below to be added to the list:
The self-exclusion program offers 5-years, ten years, or a lifetime ban. Once you sign up for a time period, the Self-Exclusion Division will add your name to the list.
Your photograph and description will be sent to each sportsbook in Mississippi. Gambling facilities must remove you from mailing lists, and you are not eligible for complimentary service or credit.
Players remain on the self-exclusion list until the time selected comes to an end.
After being removed from the list, you can enjoy gambling activities, including sports betting in Mississippi.
The Commission adds your name soon after you file, and you should be banned immediately. You can contact the Commission office where you filed for self-exclusion or check with sportsbooks to ensure that your information has been received.
There are no gambling sites in Mississippi, so there is no need for such services.
The self-exclusion list allows for a five-year, 10-year, and permanent ban.
