Sports fans that like to put a little money on games now have the option to do so just two hours from Tuscaloosa.

Pearl River Resort and Casino in Choctaw, Mississippi became the latest location to offer sports betting. The folks at Pearl River held a grand opening and ribbon cutting for the new Sportsbook at Timeout Lounge, which you'll find inside the Golden Moon Casino.

The new sportsbook features 20 televisions, 12 state of the art wager boards with the latest odds and scores, charging stations for your mobile device, and a full bar. The plan is to offer mobile wagering while on the premises so you can place your bets anywhere around Pearl River.

It's a gamechanger for many fans around the Southeastern Conference. Mississippi is now the closest location for all pretty much every state in the SEC footprint so it will become a destination for a lot of people. Kudos to Pearl River for becoming the latest to roll out sports betting.
