Casinos are the top destinations for those who use Uber in Mississippi, according to the ride-sharing company.

The Beau Rivage Resort & Casino topped the list of the most popular destination in Mississippi among Uber riders, followed by Hard Rock Casino Biloxi and IP Casino Resort, Uber said.

The most popular time for people in the U.S. to contact Uber was at 11 p.m. on a Saturday, and the busiest night of the year was Oct. 28, the Saturday before Halloween.

Mississippi had the highest proportion of weekly trips between midnight and 2 a.m. on weekends.

Airports and major transit centers were removed from the most popular destinations in each state for the report. In Louisiana, Café du Monde in New Orleans slid into first place, while the Mall of America was where people most wanted to go in Minnesota. Sports arenas were by the most popular destination in about a dozen cities and states, as fans headed to Wrigley Field in Chicago and Fenway Park in Boston.

Like Biloxi, casinos were the top destinations in Atlantic City (Harrah’s) and Las Vegas (MGM Grand).
