Who regulates online casinos in the USA?

Gambling in the US is regulated a little differently than it is in the UK. US law has progressed in recent decades, making casinos and small card game venues a common occurrence in most cities, which of course includes Vegas!

Overall, gambling in the US is legal under federal law.

Still, a few acts such as the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act seek to regulate establishments and make it more difficult for gambling providers to offer betting and payment services. The individual states have their own regulations and prohibitions for online gambling, though, so it might be a good idea to make sure the online casino you’re gambling with is regulated or licensed properly under its governing law.
