Nevada online betting – Legal betting sites in Nevada
Nevada just became the first US state to legalise betting online, firmly cementing its title of the Gambling Capital of America. There are some strict requirements to meet before the online sites will allow you to register and play, but if you are unable to get out to one of the actual luxury casinos along the Vegas Strip then gambling online is the perfect alternative.
You must be residing in Nevada when you bet online. Playing from outside of the state means you are subject to that states gambling laws, and this could leave you open to the risk of prosecution. You must also be 21 to gamble in Nevada, that is the same whether you are playing online or in a real casino building.
What can I play?
If your preference is betting on sports games or racing, then the sportsbook section of the online gaming sites are perfect for you. You can place bets online just as easily as you could in a casino or a betting shop. Some of the smaller online casino sites may not have all of the fixtures, but there will be enough variety for you to enjoy an afternoon of gambling (and hopefully winning) on your favourite teams. Online sports betting sites such as BetOnline Sports who offer a welcome bonus of 50% up to $2,500 and SportsBetting who offer welcome a welcome bonus of 75% up to $1,000 also offer great odds on NFL and NHL games. You can bet on a range of games from NBA, MLS, MLB, and of course the biggest game of the year, The Superbowl.
Odds and bonuses
You will often be offered a welcome bonus when signing up to a site for the first time, this is basically free money you can bet with. You are not normally able to withdraw this money and it will usually come with conditions. Check out the terms and conditions to any bonuses you are offered. In game bonuses generally are given as part of the game and any winnings are yours to withdraw or wager as you see fit. The odds per betting game will will vary depending on which online betting site you choose, also on the type of bet you place and how far into the game you are before placing your bet. Often the later you leave it to make a bet the worse the odds.
How do I play?
Once you are registered with your chosen online betting site you simply put money into your account using a variety of payment methods, credit or debit card, wire transfer or online financial services such as PayPal or Neteller. Again each site will vary on what they allow. Choose which game you want to bet on, choose the type of bet you want to place and submit your bet. The rest is done for you. Sit back and enjoy the game and if you are lucky enough to win then the winnings will automatically be placed into your online betting account. You will be able to withdraw it assuming all terms and conditions of withdrawal have been met.
