Making my first trip down to the Mississippi Gulf Shores the last week of July

Wasn't predicated on this news these places are fun for a degenerate like me without the sportsbook - but glad to have that option now & especially glad my room is already on reserve

Definitely will increase traffic & rates

Yep, 12:00 tomorrow. I'm heading over after work. I'll miss the early games but should be there in time for the 7:00 first pitches! I recently moved from the Atlanta area to Destin, Florida. Stroke of luck now that Mississippi has sports betting!!!

Anyone need me to place a wager for them?

Going through Biloxi on the way to Destin on Friday. So I'll be interested to see what the sportsbooks are like.

Hey Roky have you ever golfed at Regatta Bay? Playing there Monday. Looks like a pretty nice course.

mark12......Not much of a golfer, but I do drive past this course every morning. I catch glimpses of a couple of holes from hwy 98 and it looks pretty sweet! A lot of great reviews on the web.
Have a great time!

The book at Beau Rivage opened noon today. Not sure what dates the others are opening exactly, but I think all are supposed to be open before football starts.

Legal sports betting kicked off Wednesday in Mississippi, the first state outside of Nevada to allow bets on in-state colleges like Ole Miss and Mississippi State.

Sportsbooks at Gold Strike Casino in Tunica and Beau Rivage in Biloxi began accepting bets at noon local time.

Mississippi joins Delaware and New Jersey as states that have launched legal sports betting since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 in mid-May.

"Sports wagering is a rapidly growing, exciting new entertainment opportunity for our company," said Jim Murren, CEO of MGM Resorts, which owns Gold Strike and Beau Rivage. "We were proud to take the first sports wager in Atlantic City in June and today the first legal sports wager in two locations in Mississippi."

Mississippi is also the first state with legal sports betting in the college football hotbed of the Southeast. While New Jersey and Delaware prohibit wagers on games involving instate schools, the Magnolia State will offer betting on all professional and college teams, including Ole Miss and Mississippi State of the SEC.

Research firm Eilers & Krejcik Gaming projects that $750 million to $800 million will be wagered on sports annually when Mississippi's land-based sports betting market matures. Eventually, mobile sports betting apps will be offered, but only will be available on casino premises. In comparison, Nevada sportsbooks took nearly $4.8 billion in bets in 2017, according to state gaming control.

Caesars Entertainment announced this week that it expected to open sportsbooks at its Mississippi casinos before football season.

Ole Miss opens its season against Texas Tech on Sept. 1, in Houston. Mississippi State hosts Stephen F. Austin on Sept. 1

Former athletes, including longtime NFL running back Willis McGahee, politicians and even veteran oddsmaker Danny Sheridan were among the first to place legal wagers in Mississippi. The ceremonial bets came 26 years to the day after the first casino bet was made in Mississippi on Aug. 1, 1992.

Have a question for you guys. The sports book at Beau Rivage has monitors at each cashier window that face away from the teller. They are there so that you can see what plays you are making and for how much. Problem is, everyone can see “your action” as the monitors are 12” to 14” and have large type. I’ve never seen this before and I’ve placed bets in Vegas at many different casinos. The manager surly responded that every casino in Vegas has them. I haven’t been to Vegas since November, so maybe things have changed. I told the guy this wasn’t true and he responded that he used to live in Vegas. So what! That makes it worse from my point of view. I’ll eat my words if anyone can confirm that these monitors exist in a Vegas book.
Thanks!

I haven't been to the Beau yet, but I've seen video of their setup on tv.

I agree, I don't remember ever seeing monitors displaying your plays to the public in Nevada.

From what I understand, the current sportsbook location in the Beau is not the permanent location, so we'll see.

Thanks for your response Mendoza. Pretty sure we're correct about the monitors. Hopefully they'll take them down when they construct their permanent sports book.
I was in IP casino yesterday, but did not see the book. Have to imagine they'll all have their books open in the next couple of weeks

Haven't been up there myself, but one of the dealers told me it's on the 2nd floor by the sports bar, which is down a short hallway from the buffet.

Hopefully they will do a better job with the new set up. I was there today and that is a weak sportsbook for such a nice casino.

I heard they just set up what they could on short notice.

There was a nightclub at the Beau that closed not too long ago, with the plan of turning the space into a piano bar. So that was in the process when the sportsbook ruling came down. But I understand the new plan is to turn that into a sportsbook. Could be wrong, but that's what employees are saying between themselves.

Caesars Sportsbooks will be offering extended SEC betting options at its Mississippi locations.

The books will attempt to use the same lines in New Jersey, Nevada and Mississippi, but managers have the option of moving the numbers to reflect the local action.

Most here will be open by the 24th, I'm hearing. Should be some long lines on Saturdays and Sundays.

I wish they'd use the Nevada-style light boards to display lines. The couple I've seen are like big computer monitors with so much grey, green, and white on them, it's hard to read the lines until you get all the way to the counter. In NV, you can stand at the back of the book and read the boards.
