Is It Legal?

On December 23rd, 2011, the US Department of Justice determined that real money casino games, online poker, and fantasy sports betting were legal. Within six months, Delaware became the first state to legalize online gambling, with Nevada and New Jersey following shortly afterwards. Since that time, there have been many changes in the laws for gambling online.

Generally, internet casino gambling in the US isn’t clearly stated as legal or not if the website is based outside of the US. No federal laws exist that ban the placing of bets online. However, the law does prevent US residents from running gambling websites.

Online gambling laws vary from state to state. Research and make yourself familiar with the gambling laws in your state. Most online casinos have a minimum age of 18 to be able to play.

Types of Online Gambling

There are three main types of internet casino gambling: poker, casino, and sports betting casinos. Success in these games is by pure chance. The enjoyment comes from the fun gameplay and the hope of winning some extra cash.

Poker

Online poker sites allow players to use real money to credit the same amount into an online account on the website that the player is playing at. The funds are used to participate in the games and tournaments that are available on the site. It’s like getting chips at a regular casino.

Participants can withdraw their money whenever they want to. You can enter some poker games with as little as $2. Any money won in a game is real money that you can withdraw.

There are a variety of styles of poker you can play. Some of the online favourites are Texas Hold ’em, Five Card Draw, Omaha Hi, Stud Poker, Triple draw, Razz, and Badugi. Of course, there are further variations on those games, and it can differ from site to site.

If you’re not sure how to play poker, most sites have the basic rules of how to play on the website. There are often free practice rooms that you can play in until you feel certain that you understand the game well enough to bet real money.

Casino

Most online casinos have all the favourites – slots, blackjack, and roulette – as well as a variety of other game options too. Live dealer options are available on some casino sites. Most of them offer a variety of sign up promotions and bonuses as well.

Most have apps that allow you to play on your mobile devices so that the games are completely portable, and you can play anywhere. Mobile apps are secure and allow you to have the gaming experience anywhere you are 24 hours a day.

It’s easy to sign up for an account on the site of your choice. You may need to download the client software, although some sites have a no download option, and use common programs such as Flash or Java to play games on your web browser. You then choose your method of deposit for your funds, transfer the amount of your choice, and start enjoying your favourite game!

Sports Betting

The goal of sports betting is to predict what team or person will win a sporting event, and you bet money on what you think will be the outcome. You win money when you are right, and if you’re wrong, you will lose money. That is the basic premise of betting on sports.

There are eleven states in which online sports betting is legal to participate in. Some allow in-person betting, some allow online betting, whereas some states allow both. Check what is legally allowed in your state before you participate.

Sports betting includes games such as:

  • MLB
  • NBA
  • NFL
  • NASCAR
  • Golf
  • Tennis
  • NCAAF
  • UFC
  • Boxing
  • Esports
  • Soccer
  • Motor Sports
  • XFL

Practice and learn how to participate in betting on sports; there are plenty of free fantasy sports betting sites. This doesn’t involve real money, so you can hone your skills before betting your cash on a sports event. Some sites will also have competitions that offer cash prizes you can vie for while playing the free games.

Responsible Gambling

With gambling being one of the most lucrative online businesses these days, it isn’t easy to find someone who has not tried it at least once. The high-speed instant gratification of Internet games offer privacy at a level regular casinos, and betting establishments do not have. The thrill of the game, the sights, sounds, and instant winnings can sweep one away into the excitement and forget about setting limits on money and time spent playing.

Know your limits and stick to them. Most online gaming sites have policies in place to help those who are struggling to play responsibly. They will provide support for clients and tools to help them maintain their level of responsibility so that all can enjoy a secure and entertaining atmosphere online.

Players can take control and register for self-exclusion programs online that helps set limits to stay within a dollar amount for betting or time spent playing. Some online gaming sites set limits on deposit increases and make it so that it doesn’t take effect for 24 hours after the change. Advertising that targets vulnerable persons is regulated so that it doesn’t encourage them to increase their gambling.

Ultimately, it belongs to the player to regulate themselves and to reach out for help. There are many supports available to help deal with out of control gambling, whether it is online or in a regular casino. Enjoy gaming responsibly!
