As Choctaw Gaming Commission regulations for sports betting were recently approved, Pearl River Resort remains at the forefront of the gambling market with the new Sportsbook being the first tribal owned and operated independent sports betting facility outside the state of Nevada. To celebrate this momentous occasion, a ribbon cutting ceremony took place on Thursday, August 30th at 10am.
“Being a part of such a historical moment is a significant achievement for Pearl River Resort and the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians. We are also excited to be the first tribal owned and operated sportsbook outside the state of Nevada,” stated Sonny Johnson, Interim President & CEO for Pearl River Resort. “The Sportsbook is another great gaming addition for our guests to enjoy on our gaming floor.
