Steps are being made quickly to move forward with allowing sports betting to be operated in the state of Mississippi. On Thursday rules were proposed by the state gaming commission on how to regulate the sport books in Mississippi. There are currently 28 licensed casinos in the state.
Comments on the proposed regulation can be made from the public for the next 25 days. After this time changes can be made, or regulations modified. On June 21 the commission will meet again. It is expected that there could be a vote made on the regulations. If so, starting the end of July is when sport books can open at Mississippi casinos.
On Monday the U. Supreme Court overturned a law that prevented betting on sports in most states. In Mississippi changed the state law to approve sports betting along with fantasy sports. This was done in anticipation of the federal law being changed.

Promissory notes have been found in early 18th-century settlements written on the backs of homemade cards with the loser pledging a future payment to the winner. When Mississippi was a Spanish territory in the s, horse racing enthusiasts built the Fleetfield Race Track in Natchez. Completed in , Natchezians went to the track and placed bets on favorite horses and jockeys, while enjoying the social atmosphere. Thus, when Mississippi became a state December 10, , gambling was already a part of its past.
During the s and s, the population of the state grew. Entertainment opportunities also increased. Many early 19th-century Mississippians went to the Mississippi Coast on the Gulf of Mexico to enjoy its resorts and mild weather. Hotels offered lawn bowling, billiards, sailing, hunting, and dancing. All of the hotels provided entertainment and gambling options. Mississippians also traveled to Natchez and Vicksburg on the Mississippi River where gambling was prevalent, especially at The Landing, a riverside region in Vicksburg, and in the Natchez-Under-the-Hill district.
In these two river cities, steamboat travelers encountered gambling houses where billiards, card games, and other betting events occurred. Horse racing and cockfighting were also popular betting sports in antebellum Mississippi, as was riverboat gambling. Many people from New Orleans visited the Mississippi Gulf Coast, enjoying the local hospitality at the growing number of hotels. Schooner races also became a popular activity for betting on the Gulf Coast.
Many seafood factories had been built along the Coast by the s, and each one of them constructed its own schooners for harvesting shrimp and oysters. However, in June and July, the factories organized races for cash prizes to see which one of them had the fastest schooner. By , the entire Mississippi Gulf Coast was connected by shell roads, railroad lines, and a trolley system.
The Coast and Piney Woods regions were booming. When World War I ended in , the Piney Woods region provided much-needed lumber to markets around the world. After Prohibition was enacted July 1, , some of the ships once used for hauling lumber engaged in transporting illegal liquor to entertainment establishments along the Mississippi Coast and to other major cities in the Gulf region. From the Caribbean Islands, particularly Cuba, to various ports along the Mississippi Sound, ships secretly sailed around the Barrier Islands and bayous.
One island, Dog Key, was a particularly popular stopping-off point for those transporting illegal liquor. Dog Key Island, which was only three miles long and about acres, had been used for years by local fishermen because artesian springs were there, providing fresh water. During Prohibition it became a haven for bootleggers.
Realizing its importance because of the fresh water supply and its location twelve miles outside of the jurisdiction of United States claims, three men decided to develop a resort there. The men, Colonel Jack W. Any visitor who paid the cent fare could take the short boat trip of about thirty minutes to the Isle of Caprice and gamble at its casino. There were roulette wheels, dice tables, and other gambling devices available.
By , the Isle of Caprice Resort was completely submerged. These hotels and many smaller establishments offered slot machines for their guests, along with other activities such as dancing and golfing. Slot machines also appeared in grocery stores and other businesses. Gambling devices were more prevalent along the Gulf Coast and in Mississippi River towns, where gambling had historically existed, than in other sections of the state. Yet, elsewhere in the inland counties of Mississippi, roadhouses supplied back room gambling activity.
Because gambling was so profitable, the Broadwater Beach Hotel was built in specifically to cater to out-of-state and Mississippi gamblers who could afford to gamble. People flocked to the gaming establishments that lined the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
During the Great Depression of the s, gambling was viewed as a means to stimulate the economy, especially along the Gulf Coast. Throughout the s and s, gambling expanded along the Coast. By , the opening of U. Highway 90, the first four-lane super highway, boosted travel along the Coast. However, not every Mississippian was comfortable with the atmosphere that highlighted the gambling night life.
In early , a group of Gulf Coast ministers organized a movement to outlaw gambling on the Coast. Their concern was that laws were not being enforced regarding the illegal operation of slot machines. Meeting regularly with like-minded citizens in their respective churches, they advertised in The Daily Herald a list of statutes that prohibited gambling as outlined in the Mississippi Law Code of The group believed gambling was harmful to family life and to individuals who could not control themselves when they spent too much money at the slot machines.
By , the U. Senate Committee to Investigate Organized Crime in Interstate Commerce had also begun hearings to determine the extent of organized crime in the casino industry throughout the United States. Senator Estes Kefauver from Tennessee headed the committee and it was soon called the Kefauver Committee. The Gulf Coast ministers and citizens used the hearings to call more attention to the slot machine problem on the Coast. They advertised the fines and imprisonment stipulations for breaking the Mississippi laws and continued to demand the enforcement of those laws by local officials.
As a result, law officials seized slot machines in various clubs and stores in Harrison County and dumped them in the Back Bay. The law officers also arrested the owners of the machines. Officials at Keesler Air Force Base, who also believed that gambling was a bad influence on the men and women stationed there, joined in the call for enforcing anti-gambling laws in Harrison County. Keesler officials were concerned that the bars, supper clubs, and other businesses in Harrison County would exploit the thousands of men and women who were stationed there.
It was believed that illegal slot machines tempted the young men and women to gamble away their hard-earned money when the chances of winning at the slot machines were almost non-existent. After several days of investigations and hearings in Biloxi, the Kefauver Committee condemned the gambling establishments, but did not close them. After this report, a crackdown on gambling operations did occur for awhile in Harrison County.
