Is it Legal for United States Residents to play at Online Casinos?
All of the research we have done suggest that playing at online casinos from the United States is legal. We are not lawyers and we do recommend you check your national, state and local laws to determine if playing at online casinos is legal in your area. Many USA residents believe the UIGEA (Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act) made playing at online casinos illegal however we (as well as many others) do not interpret the law in that way. There are many criticisms regarding this law and you can see more on the UIGEA here where you can draw your own conclusions.
Are the Online Casinos Listed Here Licensed?
Yes, all the online casinos listed here on our website are licensed in a regulated jurisdiction. See our individual Casino Reviews to see where each online casino is licensed. Every online casino we recommend also undergoes third party audits to ensure fair play and proper game payout percentages. In many cases this third party audit is a stipulation of their license and they must be audited annually or bi-annually in order to renew their casino license.

Do Casinos Pay to be Listed here on OnlineUnitedStatesCasinos.com?
No, a casino cannot pay us to be listed here on our website. In order for a casino to be listed our editors and contributors must have first chosen the casino to play at and be reviewed. Once we have played at the casino and if it meets our criteria the casino may be listed here on this website. We do not accept payment from casinos to be listed or recommended on our website. We do receive a referral fee if we send a new player to the casino but that is only after we have already chosen to list the casino here on our website.
