• The Truth About Online Gambling

    Posted on January 25, 2012 by in Gambling News

    Many players believe that online gambling is illegal in the US but the truth is that the UIGEA doesn’t say that online gambling is illegal, it just prohibit any financial transaction between an online gambling company and any financial institutions (like banks), so when someone gambles at any online casino or poker room, he or she  is not doing anything illegal. This means that the US Federal Government can’t condemn any citizen for playing at online casinos or online poker rooms.

    Many players think that online casinos are not trustworthy, that the security is easy to breach, or that they will never see their winnings in their bank accounts. There are a lot of misconceptions about the safety and reliability of online casinos but the truth is that most of them have passed several analysis, audits and anti-fraud test before being launched to the market.

    In order to know when a casino is reputable, check for the following certification logos or seals on their website:

    • eCOGRA: e-Commerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance
    • GPWA: Gambling Portal Webmasters Association
    • CAP: Casino Affiliate Programs

    Many players prefers to don’t play in any online casino because they believe that the online gambling industry is a tool for money laundering. As we mentioned before, all these online casinos are now subject to audits, so you have nothing to worry about when gambling online. If you are a player who live in the United States of America we  strongly recommend you not to gamble online. We try to deliver the most accurate and updated information but remember that these online gambling laws are changing every month so you should first read and know all the laws governing the jurisdiction you reside in and make sure you are not doing anything illegal.
