Is offshore sports betting legal? Are online sportsbooks in violation of U.S. laws?
Referencing an antiquated statute, the government has unsuccessfully tried to make a case against online sports betting by claiming that wagering on the Internet violates interstate wire communications regulations. However, those same statutes provide language asserting that IT IS LEGAL to use wire transmissions for placing bets or wagers on a sporting event or contest from a State or foreign country where betting on that sporting event or contest is legal into a State or foreign country in which such betting is legal.
It is the nature of the Internet that web sites are available for access in all states and foreign countries whether or not betting is legal. Therefore, we are dealing with a technology Congress did not consider when adopting the interstate gambling statutes.
The Caribbean Islands are booming with sportsbooks since the explosion of the Internet and these offshore sports books contend that US local and federal laws don’t govern their sports betting operations. Europeans have enjoyed legalized sports wagering for many years and they don’t seem to have a problem with it.
