Biloxi, Miss. – Sports betting has been up and running in Mississippi for a little while, and a few casinos have already set up their sports books. Now, Gulfport has a place where visitors and locals can place their bets on the hottest sporting events: Island View Casino Resort. Just in time for college football action, Island View opened their sports book to the public at 10:00am today.
Island View Business Development Executive Director John Carter says while there are other local casinos for sports fans to place bets he says Island View is the place to be. “We’ve got our two different casinos now, our smoking casino and our non-smoking casino. We did put a sports book in each one so we have the non-smoking where you never have to smell the smoke. You can go in, place your bets there, as well as over here, which we have right behind us, our larger sports book.”
