States highlighted in green have officially legalized online sports betting. Licensed and regulated sportsbooks have opened up in a handful of these states.

What are offshore American betting sites?
We use the term offshore American betting sites to describe sportsbooks located in countries with legal online gambling that accept customers from the United States. These betting sites are licensed and regulated in other countries and are safe to be used by US residents. The majority of these sportsbooks are located in Costa Rica or Panama.
Are offshore betting sites safe?
The offshore sportsbooks featured on our website are safe to use. Many of these betting sites have been operating for over ten years and carry solid reputations. We have reviewed each site and only feature the ones that we know our readers will be safe to use. US sports bettors will not have any problems depositing and withdrawing funds from the offshore American betting sites featured on our website.
Can I get in trouble betting online?
Contrary to popular belief, there are no state or federal laws that prevent residents of the United States from placing a bet online. It is not against the law to wager with an offshore sportsbook. As more states continue to legalize sports betting we will start to see more regulated US sportsbooks appear. In the mean time players should feel confident knowing they can safely bet through offshore betting sites.
