People who reside in the United States love gambling and this country is home to some of the most famous land casinos in the world. With gambling cities like Vegas and Atlantic City, gambling is a favourite pastime for millions of residents. Many of these players will enjoy visiting their favourite land casinos, but some will not have access to these locations and will prefer to gamble online. Online gambling has become a topic of great dispute in the US and there are laws that restrict players from playing cash games online. However, even with laws in place, it is still possible for US players to access great online casinos and enjoy the action and rewards that are available.

In 2006, the Internet Gambling Enforcement Act was passed and this changed how US residents could access online casinos. The law does not actually prohibit players from accessing an off shore casino, but it does place restrictions on how casino accounts can be funded. The law states that no financial institution in the US can authorise transactions to online casinos. This includes the use of major credit cards. The result of his law has had US players looking for other means of making cash transactions to casino sites, Many players still enjoy gambling online and are making use of electronic payment services and prepaid cards.

The law also lead to some software providers refusing to offer cash games to players from the US. At this time, these players will not be accepted at any online casino that is powered by Playtech or Microgaming. They will have to find other sites that use software like RTG and WagerWorks. Regardless of these restrictions, millions of players continue to engage in gambling activities online.

Recent changes have been made to gambling laws and now, some states in the country are allowed to operate online gambling sites. Nevada operates some poker rooms online and New Jersey also has poker rooms. Both states are looking to start operating full service online casinos in the near future.
