Section 97-33-1 of the laws of Mississippi provides that anyone who participates in an unlawful wager shall be fined in the amount of $500 and shall face a jail time of up to ninety days if the fine is not paid, ‘Immediately.’:

SEC. 97-33-1. Betting, gaming or wagering; exception from prohibition; penalty.

If any person shall encourage, promote or play at any game, play or amusement, other than a fight or fighting match between dogs, for money or other valuable thing, or shall wager or bet, promote or encourage the wagering or betting of any money or other valuable things, upon any game, play, amusement, cockfight, Indian ball play, or duel, other than a fight or fighting match between dogs, or upon the result of any election, event or contingency whatever, upon conviction thereof, he shall be fined in a sum not more than Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00); and, unless such fine and costs be immediately paid, shall be imprisoned for any period not more than ninety (90) days. However, this section shall not apply to betting, gaming or wagering:

In addition to those fines, the winner shall also be fined in the amount of the money won at gambling pursuant to the court’s finding.  

Aside from that, the law makes no specific provisions against online gambling, but in general terms, one would surmise that it falls under unlawful gambling laws.  

Furthermore, Mississippi might be open to online gambling given that they have passed a bill in May legalizing Daily Fantasy Sports. For some reason, Legislators seem to think there is a meaningful difference between the two things, but one thing could potentially lead to another in terms of legalization and regulations. 

There have been a number of busts in the state related to illegal gambling.

Some arrests have pertained to illegal gambling equipment.

Though the Legislation didn’t pass, the state once had Legislation that would legalize regulated online poker sites within the state while making all other forms of online gambling illegal and would result in imprisonment of up to 90 days and fines of up to $10,000 for playing on illegal sites.

However, no such arrests have ever been made and the law has not yet specifically prohibited gambling online, though the plain language of the law would lend one the conclusion that online gambling within the state is technically illegal. With all of that, they have authorized DFS, so they are going to end up with a ranking of lightly restricted.
