Mississippi Gambling Laws
Playing poker or placing a wager that is not authorized by the state of Mississippi can cause you to get a fine up to $500 (you can be imprisoned for 90 days if you do not have the money to pay the fine). You can also have your winnings confiscated and paid over as fines. These laws might seem bad, but they are some of the best gambling laws in the United States. You must admit that if you do get busted for playing poker at an unauthorized poker room, a $500 fine would the correct punishment, not to harsh and not too lenient.

Poker sites accepting players from Mississippi
In Mississippi you can play at three quality poker rooms including Bovada.lv,
America's Cardroom and Bet Online Poker.
Bovada is by far the biggest and most popular online poker room in the unregulated U.S. market. If you could play any poker room, Bovada would still be a go to poker room. Only Poker Stars could arguably have better poker room than Bovada. Bovada helps the recreational players with anomalous tables, which helps by making hand tracking software obsolete and they make it impossible for regular poker sharks follow you around the poker room. Any other online poker room and you would have no way to stop the grinders from taking away your bankroll except for fair and honest play.
America's Cardroom is your second-best option and it has been improving over the past several years. It wasn't long ago when Winning Poker was a small niche poker network made of a bunch of small relatively unknown poker rooms. This network is now the second largest poker network in the U.S. market. You can choose from a variety of poker websites, but America's Cardroom is the anchor in the poker network and it has the best reputation among the group of poker rooms.
Betonline.ag and Sportsbetting.ag are owned by the same company. These are the most popular poker rooms on the Chico Network. This network is the only other network I would play in if I was from Mississippi. The remaining poker rooms should be avoided. There isn't much traffic in the poker rooms, the tables are filled with regular multi-table poker grinders and you may run into issues when you try to make a withdrawal. There is no reason to play anywhere else other than the three options listed above.
