Is Gambling Legal in the United States of America?

Online Gambling refers to any type of gambling conducted via the internet, with the exception of live casinos. This includes online casinos, live poker and sports betting amongst other things. The first online gambling site opened to the public, was ticket selling for the then first official Liechtenstein International Poker tournament in October 1994. Online Gambling has come a long way since then and there are now many sites that offer different types of Gambling, Online Poker, Betting and Online Sports Betting. There is also Online Gambling from countries that do not allow Betting or Gambling and in some cases there are certain countries where it is illegal to conduct certain types of Gambling.

Online Gambling

There are many reasons why you would wish to gamble online including saving money, escaping pressure from office work, having an excess of cash, a fear of losing your money or just as a means of passing time whilst at home or at work. In the recent years there have been many changes to the law with regards to Gambling and one such law is that the minimum age for gambling is 18. One other law which is sometimes overlooked is the law that all Online Gambling Venues must be registered under the Gambling Commission of the country where they are based. These Online Gambling Venues can either be Casino Gambling Sites, Internet Gambling Sites or even an Intertops.

One of the largest changes to Online Gambling in the United States was in July 2021 when the U.S congress passed and enacted the Responsible Gambling Enforcement Act. This act made many things easier for Online Gambling operators in the United States such as; made legal to gamble online by anyone who is over the age of eighteen, tax free status for wagering and most importantly no age limitations. This has also meant that the majority of State Resolutions against online gambling have also passed. This is very good news for Online Gambling in the United States because it means that not only is it legal to gamble online but is also a very safe place to gamble. This is because all the information on the computers used to gamble is kept very closely guarded by the various online casinos, hence there is very little chance of any type of identity fraud or other illegal activities.
