BILOXI, Miss. – As more and more states seem to be far surpassing previous sports betting records, Mississippi has joined those ranks with a record-breaking October revenue pull.

Mississippi October Revenue

October’s sports betting revenue has hit its highest point since first launching in 2018, that being a reported $9.15 million.

That’s a 3.4% increase from September’s $8.85 million in sports betting revenue.

If Mississippi sportsbooks can see a 9.3% increase in November, they will break $10 million in revenue for the first time in their operating history.

That marks a 52.3% increase from the preceding month of September, with a reported handle of $54.8 million.

Online Mississippi Sports Betting Could Mean Bigger Numbers

While the Mississippi legal sports betting market is doing well enough, access to state-sponsored online/mobile sportsbooks could see it doing better.

Some lawmakers like Representative Casey Eure are already making moves in that direction, as attempts to open a regulated online sports betting market in Mississippi are now beginning.

If this does end up happening, Mississippi could see more than double its regular monthly handles.
