The online gambling industry is at the forefront of mobile and technological innovations, and as such, can be best characterized as a constantly changing Webscape. We get asked many of the same questions  - both old and new - and address them here on our updated FAQ's page. If you do not find an answer to your question here, please Contact Us.


Should I be concerned about the software an online casino uses?

YES. The software platform of an online gambling site can make a difference in not only if your hand is fair or not, but in the entertainment experience overall.

What payment methods are accepted at online casinos, and which are the best?

The vast majority of online casinos accept a variety of third-party payment/withdrawal options, many of which are well known and trusted, including Paypal and Neteller. Although not available for many US players, select prepaid money cards and wire transfers are readily available at most US-friendly online casinos. For a comprehensive list, see our Gambling Banking page.


Is online gambling legal in the United States?

Online gambling currently is neither regulated nor criminalized by the federal government as per the 2011 USDOJ ruling that the 1961 Wire Act only applies to sports betting. Certain individual states have online gambling laws in place, and all prospective real money online gamblers are advised to check their individual state laws.
