Using Betting sites in USA

Postby kevgar85 » Mon Nov 30, 2015 10:19 am

Hi guys,

Anybody know if i can access my betting accounts from the USA?

Would be using my phone, just wondering if anyone has been able to do this recently.

i know that in other countries the sites are blocked.


thanks ,

That will be a no, Kevgar, sorry. I'm living in the US now and while I still technically have UK accounts I can't access them. They'll pick up your location while on the web and disallow access.

Reason for this is the betting companies don't have agreements with the USA to allow account access from that country. There were a few online betting firms a while back got shut down for allowing it!

perhaps the free trade agreement currently being negotiated between the

USA and E.U. will sort this out as its a clear barrier to free trade .

Las vegas and atlantic city prove its pure protectionism .

I doubt the free trade will do anything in respect to that, to be honest. Even in the USA the betting restrictions are rigidly held for most states. If that agreement allow some access I would bet it would still only be allowed in states that currently allow gambling anyway. Nevada, Colorado and Oklahoma are three I know. New York to a degree as they have betting shops, but still strictly controlled because they just banned FanDuel and Draft Kings from accepting playing customers from the state.

I have to strongly recommend not doing this. Although a VPN can give you access, it's your physical location that is covered by the laws of both countries. It can lead to, at best, closure of an account and, at worst, charged with a Federal offence in the US.

Yeah, the rules in US are strict - the only way is to move in another country; but before to make such a decision you need to think if these betting accounts deserve such changes in your life
Good Luck!

For players from the United States, it's best to use bookmakers BetDSI, BetOnline or Bovada. A full List of Sportsbooks that accept US players can be found here: http://100bookies.com/us-players-accepted-eng/

and risk getting your credit card or deposit method closed down. Whilst its not illegal to bet with them, they are operating illegally and your funding methods can be closed down if used

Be very careful

Then it's better to go in bitcoin bookmakers. Registration in them is usually completely anonymous.

Yesterday I googled about gambling sites and it says they are illegal. I own a gambling blog so I was curious but it says that selling anyone from the USA any sort of betting type thing is ban and illegal. You can do research on your own. In my Country Pakistan, they all are already ban. Just read that in some provinces of Canada, online gambling is allowed. Better luck
