Mississippi Lays the Smack Down on Online GamingMississippi didn’t miss a beat at handing online gambling its lunch.

According to CS Report, lawmakers in the state who wanted to user in an era of regulated online gaming for lottery and sports betting have effectively been rebuffed.

Chairman of the Mississippi House Gaming Committee, Rep. Richard Bennett created the Internet Gaming and Sports Betting Task Force to introduce a study regarding the financial, legal consideration and technical aspects of online gambling. The results from the study showed very little interest in poker and more favorable interest towards sports betting.

All told, the task force didn’t find any evidence to suggest that pursuing such a path would be a good idea.

“We’re a state that’s going to stay back and watch,” Bennett is quoted in the report.
