Online casino Gambling and U.S. Sports: Legal?

Thanks to changes in U.S. laws, betting on sports at online casino gambling sites isn’t what it used to be. But does the creation of laws which make the online casino illegal in America mean that those who bet on American sports – or who relied on bets on American sports – have no other options on the table for them? Actually, you might be surprised to learn that there are many people around the world not living in the United States who follow and bet on odds for American sports.

We’re not just talking about American expatriate communities, though these might make up a significant portion of online casino gamblers in countries where online casino is legalized. Online gambling has been blessed, however, with the worldwide presence of sports fans who care little about where the sport is played and just want to bet on it. And if, as things stand this week, the World Series is going on, then you can likely assume that many Japanese are betting at legalized online gambling sites over whether the Detroit Tigers or St. Louis Cardinals will win.

Following the World Series is of course the World Baseball Classic. The World Baseball Classic is, in truth, the World’s World Series – and there aren’t any guarantees that the American team will win. International competition in sports is a key component in online casinos gambling, as evidenced each time an Olympic games time rolls around. Sure, online casino is illegal now in America. But abroad, betting on American sports isn’t.
