PHILADELPHIA, Miss. (WTVA) - Pearl River Resort and Bok Homa Casino will soon offer sports betting, reports WLBT-TV in Jackson. 

Both casinos are owned and operated by the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians. 

This comes after tribal council members unanimously approved amendments to the Choctaw Gaming Commission Regulations on May 31. 

As a result, the MBCI and Pearl River Resort will soon offer professional and collegiate sports betting in a legal environment through the resort to honor their bets. 

In May, the Supreme Court cleared the way for states to accept the bets.
