United States (US) Online Casinos
Many players from the US have been playing in online casinos since they were introduced. However, recent legislation has placed some restrictions on US players and many players who are thinking about trying an online casino actually believe it is illegal to do so. The newer laws that were passed have created some confusion for many players. The laws do state that no online casino can be operated within the country, which forces players to find international gambling sites that will accept them. One problem is that many of the software providers that power online casinos will not accept cash players from the US. This limits the number of available casino sites for these players to those that offer software from certain companies, including RTG and Top Game.
Another restriction that these players will face pertains to how casino payments are processed. The current laws will prohibit any financial institution in the US from processing a cash payment to an online casino. This means that US players will no longer be able to use credit cards, debit cards and some electronic payment services. Most players who are still enjoying online gambling are doing so by using prepaid cards to make cash deposits to their casino account.
It is still possible for players from the US to gain access to cash casino games online. As long as they find a reliable international casino that supports an available payment method, these players will be able to continue enjoying great cash games from the comfort of home. The casinos that do cater to US players will offer great customer support and will be able to answer any legal questions players may have when they open a real money account at the site.
