    The Beau Rivage in Biloxi, Mississippi opened its sports book this week.

    Feels good to know you can just run down to the casino here in MS and place a wager on a game. Its long overdue!

    Anyone on this site that travels to Biloxi or planning on making a trip to LEGALLY place bets on game?
    I will be all over the Mississippi coast betting and beating down these sportsbooks. Come on down and take advantage of them with me. Lets get their money!!! Lets get drunk and bust em!

    OH , by the way....yeah its really me ....BULLSHOT

    Yes sir! Die hard razorback guy here in Arkansas.

    I use to really hit up all three (IP, Hardrock, and Beau). Beau finally got to where they wanted to get serious about my comps so been just using them lately. Mlife has been good to me the last 18 months or so, so until they buck that trend I'll ride them.

    I haven't been yet but a friend tells me the IP has a better game viewing area. The silver slipper will save 30 minutes of commute time. Hope it's a decent set up.

    Sportsbettors Pack Tunica Casinos for Match Madnesd

    Updated: Mar 22, 2019 10:39 PM CDT
















    TUNICA CO., Miss. (localmemphis.com) - Sports betting is now allowed at Tunicacasinos, and this is the first year fans could bet legally on the Tigers or whatever team they want in the NIT or NCAA tournaments.

    According to the American Gaming Association, one in every five adults in the United States will wager a total of $8.5 billion on the NCAA college basketball tournament. Since sports betting is now legal in Mississippi, it's creating welcomed crowds at casinos in Tunica for March Madness.
    Horseshoe Casino has dedicated a room, with three huge projectors, where people can watch the NCAA games and even bet on the Tigers competing in the NIT.
    "We decided to provide our guest with the opportunity to experience the madness in an expanded area where we traditionally have 1,200 people for a concert event with three huge 30-foot screens to provide them with the optimal watching experience," said Horseshoe Casino General Manager, Joe Lodise. "It's been more than we could have expected, and we're really seeing people that have never been here before which is fantastic."
    Gold Strike was the first Tunica Casino to allow sports betting, then others, like Horseshoe followed suit.
    "It's been more than we could have expected and we're really seeing people that have never been here before which is fantastic,"said Hal Wafer, Sports Supervisor at Horseshoe Casino.
    Wafer says Tunica will soon be the sports betting capital of the South, welcoming people from states like Georgia and South Carolina.
    "It's a way to drive additional people to the property, to the area Tunica in general I mean it's been great for the market and for us. We are attracting new customers," Lodiseexplained.
    And the move breathes life into Tunica that has previously struggled economically.
    "When Saturday rolls around tomorrow, Memphis will be a ghost town because everyone will be here," Wafer explained.
    The Horseshoe special March Madness room is open this weekend and next, but gamblers can place their bets seven days a week.

    How does these new in person books in usa compare to offshore betting books when it comes to limits and stuff. Are they more like a square book that limits and kicks out long term winning bettors or are they more like sharp books that welcomes winners to sharpen their lines. I am wondering if I could use the methods from bettingresource and still last in these books without getting limited or kicked out?
