Legal USA Live Casinos

Legal USA Live CasinosThere are a few legal USA Live Casinos where players looking to play Live Dealer games online from within the United States of America can play.

However the choice is limited since sanctions were applied to online casino operators in 2011.

Several casino operators were detained and charged for allowing US citizens to play online at their casinos.

The reason there is now only a few lays with two pieces of legislation that changed the face of online gambling in America in 2006.

The Federal Wire Act of 1961 along with the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 (UIGEA) effectively legislates online gambling in the USA.

The aim was to “prohibit gambling businesses from knowingly accepting payments in connection with the participation of another person in a bet or wager that involves the use of the Internet and that is unlawful under any federal or state law“.

There are a few exceptions to the law, but in the main, if you’re an American and you want to play legally at an online casino, you can’t.

The Landscape is changing

As time has moved forward there has been challenges to the law on a state by state basis.

Currently it’s not possible for a US citizen to just gamble anywhere online legally.

But in one or two states legislation has been passed to allow online gambling just within their state.

It’s now possible to legally gamble online in Las Vegas, Nevada and in New Jersey, New York.

Where are the Legal USA Live Casinos?

Playing Live Casino game in the US is a bit more limited, however two live casino Software providers, Ezugi & Evolution Gaming has been granted licenses to provide their live dealer games in New Jersey.

Authentic Gaming has also signed a deal with the Foxwoods Casino to stream a roulette table to players outside of the USA.

What about other Live Casinos in the USA?

There are Live casino providers that do provide their games to US players from any state.

They are not licensed by the US government or local states to do so.

They freely accept players and therefore tread a fine line with the authorities.

My position as owner of Live Casino Comparer is to not promote or give exposure to those live casinos.

There are plenty of other sites that do that. I’m sorry to disappoint you.
