the short answer is "it depends"
gambling is regulated on both state and federal level with different taxation rules.

currently the biggest obstacle for us(and a) residents is wiring money with credit cards (remember, fbi has plenty of wire fraud predicates and they are not shy about using them)

if you intend to do some heavy lifting (and i imagine in this case you would not be asking questions here) you best options are still vegas and the mob. or you can visit one of those fake countries (like ukraine) and establish a shell account (or alternatively use off-shore cc)

if your intention is to have some fun, any off-shore bookies that are willing to accept us funds should do.

BTW, tennisfan or anyone, do you know if Neteller's Mastercard works on the states? (Not the online site, but the card itself to buy at shops)

I'm planning a trip on January and would be very nice to spend my "bookie cash" there

no problem, it is harder now to deposit than it has been in the past, but if you feel comfortable with moneygram, western union, or gold-pay, then you shouldn't have too much a problem. Some debit cards work but most dont.
