    Why do they have some states in the USA banned and some not? Is it illegal to gamble or what? I'm confused. I know the funding is not legal unless you live in the states that are not banned? or am I wrong? I don't understand to much of this law, sorry, can someone please help me to understand this mess? Thank you :confused:

    Here is a link you can look at to see the legal status of your state You must register/login in order to see the link.

    That is just so you know whether you are safe, committing a misdemeanor, or felony by playing online from your location. State laws. The author, Chuck Humphrey, is of the opinion that all online gambling is illegal under the Wire-Act based on the WSE ruling.

    The UIGEA is another matter altogether. Here is an opinion by Dr. I. Nelson Rose You must register/login in order to see the link.posted at gamblingandthelaw.

    The eleven states that are excluded have specific laws outlawing internet gambling, many others have vague laws; no state, to date, specifically allows gambling transactions across state lines. California will probably be the first to allow online gaming instate - when the player and casino are each located in California.

    Intertops is a microgaming that allows all US players. There are several RTG's, Rival, Vegas Tech, 3Dice, etc.

    It's a judgement call and there is no easy answer. If I were to offer any 'advice' (which I'm not) I would use the guide in the first link to help make my decision.

    The payment processing issue isn't restricted to the eleven states, it's a US issue. So even if the UIGEA doesn't apply to you (talk to a lawyer to know) and it is not specifically illegal to gambling in your location (ask a lawyer after giving him the legwork of first link) you would still be presented with a very iffy situation trying to deposit and withdraw (especially if you had a smashing win)

    I would just save my money, find cheap air and hotel packages, and go to Nevada or A.C. where the gaming is regulated, obviously legal, and can be a heck of a lot of fun:thumbsup:
