What’s best for US players?

The United States continues to make it harder and harder for Americans to enjoy any type of online gambling which really annoys me.  I do know that several places are still billed as “US-friendly” so it is possible to do.  What are my choices for payment processors though?

I’m not US based so I cannot comment. I’ve honestly only noticed that a bunch of places say things like “No US” and similar statements. Personally I think its good when they say that, at least they aren’t taking your money and ripping you off by refusing to pay you when you win.

I am sure if there is any questionable legal issues going on that paypal would not let people use there processor, maybe regular credit cards or egold may work on some sites like these.  I only gamble in casinos so I would have to sign up for one to see.

This is something that is on everyones mind. I know not that long ago some state set it up so that they fully ban gambling online in their state making it some type of crazy offense. I just do not get it, you would think they would want more money coming into the state.

The problem is that they couldn’t figure out a way to tax it effectively. So all the money was going out of the state, instead of being spent in state, and that is what they didn’t want and wanted to stop. Hence the bans.

If the US could figure out how to keep the money within the country and not going to offshore sites as well as accurately track it all for tax purposes, the government would give carte blanche to the online casinos.  The problem is that they haven’t figured out how to get their cut so they don’t want you to be able to do it.

Um… I used PayPal and never had any problems with that. I think that that’s universal friendly and probably good for the US players.

Where do you gamble using Paypal?  I have never heard of any online casino taking Paypal due to gambling being against their TOS, I thought.  Plus, I know they will not work with a US player for gambling because Paypal follows the US laws for anything to do with financial institutions.

I have read that in Eastern Texas, Bitcoin is officially declared as legitimate currency. This time, they have the advantage in online Bitcoin gambling sites.
