PokerStars, along with its virtual reality sister site Vegas Infinite, does not currently allow those from Alabama, South Carolina, Mississippi and Louisiana to play for real money on their website.  Fear not!  There are alternatives online.

Americas Cardroom is accessible from each of the states.  None of these three states regulated online poker at this time.

Mississippi is among the most gambling-friendly states, so much so that they just legalized online sports betting, allowing sportsbooks to operate inside the state.  Those wishing to bet online can only do so at the gambling venues.

World Series of Poker Circuit events are regularly played at Harrah's Tunica. 

Here is a breakdown of Mississippi poker rooms:

    Ameristar Casino Vicksburg (Vicksburg, MS)
    Beau Rivage Resort & Casino (Biloxi, MS)
    Golden Nugget Biloxi (Biloxi, MS)
    Hollywood Casino Bay Saint Louis (Bay St. Louis, MS)
    Hollywood Casino Tunica (Robinsonville, MS)
    Horseshoe Casino Tunica (Robinsonville, MS)
    IP Casino Biloxi (Biloxi, MS)
    Magnolia Bluffs Casino (Natchez, MS)
    Pearl River Resort (Philadelphia, MS)

Louisiana is another state that welcomes gambling operators, though no Internet poker rooms are located in the state.

    Boomtown Casino New Orleans (Harvey, LA)
    Coushatta Casino (Kinder, LA)
    Cypress Bayou Casino (Charenton, LA)
    Eldorado Casino Shreveport (Shreveport, LA)
    Golden Nugget Lake Charles (Lake Charles, LA)
    Harrah's New Orleans (New Orleans, LA)
    Horseshoe Casino Bossier City (Bossier City, LA)
    Isle of Capri Casino Lake Charles (Westlake, LA)
    Jena Choctaw Pines Casino (Dry Prong, LA)
    L'Auberge Casino Baton Rouge (Baton Rouge, LA)
    L'Auberge Casino Lake Charles (Lake Charles, LA)
    Paragon Casino (Marksville, LA)

Alabama and South Carolina are not particularly friendly towards gambling although Alabama does have some casinos.  South Carolina has none.

Americas Cardroom is one of the few sites that has long served the U.S. market and is currently offering a $30 million guaranteed online tournament.  Americas Cardroom tends to rank among the top 5 largest online poker sites in the world.  It also offers a sportsbook and online casino.  Keep in mind, you can also play for free to hone yours poker skills, especially if just starting out.
