You can bet in Vegas no problem other than that you have to check were you live and what state. Many states have casinos. The only place you can wager on sports with out a possible problem is vegas
I can not call vegas from were I am and place a wager. In the US when you cross state lines is when you could have problems. By phone, by net and by person.
And I did say could.
Hoped this helped
Ok lets see if I can help this gentlemen with his paper. First this link has over 5 pages addy's for .com info over info about the subject.
gambling laws in the US - Bing
I am working some stuff up for you off line which I will copy and paste for you today.
As we talked before you want facts not opinions which is the way to go. So I will only comment on what my lawyer has explained to me as fact and we can go from there.
In the US you do not have one law that covers everything on anything but murder and the sentence you can get is not the same in each state (Texas has the death penatly and is not affraid to use it)!!
Example: If you look at any US ads for Sports Services or info on gaming you will see the Dislamier.
US CITIZENS PLEASE NOTE: The information contained at this site is for news and entertainment purposes only. Any use of this information in violation of any federal, state or local law is prohibited.
I live in Texas so this is what I have to deal with on a daily basis.
#1 Federal Law (FBI) can go any place
#2 State Law (which covers the state of Texas)
#3 County Law (which is for the county in which you are in)
#4 Local (Which covers the city/town you are in)
So as I live in the US in the State of Texas and the county of _________ and the city of ________________
I have to go by there Laws.
Example: In the State of Texas you can run what we call the squares for sports.
100 squares at your price which you are assigned a set of numbers if your numbers hit you win the pot.
Like the $600 I won from Spooky on the Duke/ W. Virg game
My numbers hit I win. But in the State of Texas if you run a pool like this there must be 100% pay out or you are breaking the State Law. Why would you run it?? In Texas I do run some for funds rasiers and charity but that is it.
I know that may not be exactly what your are talking about but in Texas that is a Law. It may not be in other states.
There is one other thing we deal with in Texas and that is the Texas Ranger (not the mlb team.
As I do have some friends who are in Law Enforcement in other counties but live in the town I do. I have asked many questions to these guys about the Rangers!!!
Bottom line I am told when a Ranger steps foot in your Jail ,Office, City, County buisness or home.
They are in charge!!! That is it.
I hoped this little bit helped I will post more as time allows. Mondays are very busy in early day here as our week ends at Sunday at 11:59 p.m.
wow, thanks junkman, very nice, as said if you also can name some literature, would be great.
Hey, me again, sorry, one more favour.
Anyone know some good links for the following topics (must be current and not very old!!!):
- economic effect of gambing (us)

Also, any usable videos about this topic on youtube or somewhere would be nice.
Thanks in advance!!
