New law lets Mississippi regulate fantasy sports contests

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant has signed legislation to regulate and tax operators of daily fantasy sports contests. House Bill 967 will set an 8 percent tax and authorize the Mississippi Gaming Commission to regulate fantasy sports contests online or in casinos.
Bryant signed the bill Monday, and it becomes law July 1.
Regulations will apply to fantasy sports contest operators who have 100 or more players drawn from the general public.
