If you are new, you might have a lot of questions about online sportsbetting. Hopefully we can answer them for you here.
If you have questions that aren't answered here email us.
ARE US ONLINE POKER AND CASINO SITES FAIR?
The most important question that you should have regarding any type of gambling site is whether the games are fair and random. There have been, over the years some sites that have been exposed as offering rigged and fixed games and as such this is why you should only ever play at legal and regulated US based gambling sites.
You will be at the mercy of the operators of any site if you choose to play at one based offshore, and there are never any guarantees at those sites that the game you will be accessing are fair.
HOW CAN I TELL THAT A GAMBLING SITE IS LEGAL?
You will need to look out for the logo of the licensing authority that has issued a gambling site with a license before you start to gamble at that site. If the site is licensed by any US State then you will find that site is also listed on the gaming board’s website. Always look out for these logos and always double check on the website of the licensing authority gaming boards website for not every site that will proclaim that it is licensed will be.
DO I EARN COMPS WHEN GAMBLING ONLINE?
You will earn comps in much the same way when you are gambling online as you would when gambling at a land based venue, however it is often the case the player rewards programs attached to online gambling sites are often much more generous than land based venues.
ARE MOBILE GAMBLING SITES AVAILABLE TO US CITIZENS?
As long as you are within the State boundaries of one of the US States that have now fully legalised online gambling you will have no problems what so ever being able to access and play at those sites for real money via a mobile device. Be aware that the gambling sites will always use some form of geo location software to determine where you are and if you are trying to access their sites from outside the State boundaries you will not be able to view or access their games.
DO I HAVE TO DECLARE MY ONLINE GAMBLING WINNINGS?
You will have to declare all of your winnings when gambling online just like you do when you win in a land based casino, for tax purposes you will of course be able to access your gaming history and win loss ratios at all fully licensed and regulated US based gambling sites.
HOW OLD DO I HAVE TO BE TO GAMBLE ONLINE?
You will not be permitted to gamble online if you are under the age of 21. The gambling laws for each US State have been set in stone and as such always double check to see just how old you have to be to gamble at any gambling site you are thinking of signing up to, for whilst casino gambling can only be accessed by people over 21 there may be some forms of gambling which can be accessed by under 21 year olds, such as in New Jersey and 18 year old can legally buy a lottery ticket but cannot gamble on a casino.
