Details on Casinos in Mississippi

In 1990 Mississippi became the third state to legalize riverboat gambling, today the riverboats are the only casinos found in the state, except for three Indian casinos, which are all associated with the same Tribe.

Mississippi state gambling laws restrict casinos to only be located on the coast of the Mississippi River, and counties that border that river. Casinos in Mississippi are also required to be permanently moored at a dock, and never set sail.

Since Mississippi law does not require riverboat casinos to cruise, almost all of the casinos are actually built on stationary barges. These stationary barges are built with the appearance of land-based casinos, rather than that of a boat. This allows Mississippi casinos to offer 24-hour dockside gambling, while still being classed as a riverboat.

In 2005 Hurricane Katrina devastated the gulf coast. Many homes, businesses, and casinos were destroyed. Later that year the state legislature voted to allow some Mississippi casinos located on the gulf coast to be rebuilt on land. This law requires the casinos to be rebuilt within 800-feet of the shoreline.

Mississippi casinos offer such games as: blackjack, roulette, slots, video poker, craps, and three-card poker. Other optional games include: baccarat, mini-baccarat, poker, pai gow poker, ultimate Texas hold’em, big six wheel, four card poker, casino war, keno, let it ride, and Spanish 21.

All casinos in Mississippi are open 24 hours a day, and the minimum gambling age is 21.

NOTE: In Mississippi, if you win a jackpot of $1,200 or more, the casino will collect 3% of your winnings as a gambling tax for the Mississippi Tax Commission. This tax is nonrefundable, and this $1,200 threshold applies to any cash prizes won in tournaments or casino drawings.
