Is online tennis betting still illegal in the US??
 
Does anyone have any info on the current US laws for online tennis betting?

Would I have to travel to Vegas to make a legitimate bet? I don't want to get involved with any type of bookie that could give me trouble.

it is illegal in the U.S. but you dont need to bet with tony soprano to do it. I've been betting for 7 years non-stop and no slap on the wrist, the laws are for inshore bookies and the players dont get punished.

thegreek.com
5dimes.com
bookmaker.com
bodog.com

All very reputable places if you are truly interested.

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.

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

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.
