This is a great place to live if you are a poker player. There is some great poker rooms in the casinos here, there are many online poker rooms to choose from, the gambling laws are somewhat lenient and there are many home poker games in Mississippi as well.
Mississippi Gambling Laws
Playing poker or placing a wager that is not authorised 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 actually some of the best gambling laws in the United States. You have to admit that if you do get busted for playing poker at an unauthorised poker room, a $500 fine would the correct punishment, not to harsh and not to lenient.
