SEC fans are about to have casinos in the Southeast able to offer sports betting. Officially, sports betting becomes legal in Mississippi on July 22, but don’t run to your favorite Magnolia State casino looking for the sports book just yet.

According to an article in the Sun Herald of Biloxi, multiple Mississippi casinos will not be opening sports books on the day sports gambling becomes legal.

“Let’s keep our eyes wide open and focus on doing it right and providing quality product,” Palace Casino general manager Keith Crosby told the Sun Herald, “and allow it to mature into what it will become.”

The article notes that some casinos, including Beau Rivage, Harrah’s and Boomtown in Biloxi have begun converting existing spaces into sports books.

The widely acknowledged goal for sports books is to be open in time for football season. The college football season officially kicks off on Aug. 26. SEC action begins on Aug. 30 when Texas A&M hosts Northwestern State.
