Online Gambling Myths vs. Facts
Myth: It is illegal to gamble online in the US.
Due to a lot of ambiguity in the current legislation (*cough* vote wisely!) a lot of people believe that it is unlawful to place wagers at gambling websites.
Fact: The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) of 2006 does not make it illegal to gamble, what the UIGEA bans is all financial transactions between financial institutions and online gambling websites. This means that players are not engaging in any sort of illegal practice when gambling online.
