The NBA is one of the most popular sports on the planet and a sportsbook’s action is never quiet. NBA playoffs and championship games attract more bettors than any other time of year. And while MLB is no longer the number one sport in the US, it still enjoys a huge fan base. NHL hockey is a close second in terms of sports wagering and draws a loyal following. But what’s driving the popularity of the Stanley Cup?
Offshore sportsbooks are legal in some states
Offshore sportsbooks are now legal in some states, but not in others. The reason is that most sportsbooks operate outside of the U.S. and must present a clearly presented declaration stating that they are authorized to do business in that geolocation. While offshore sportsbooks are technically illegal, many people in the U.S. do not know the difference. Offshore sportsbooks have been prepared for this shift in the market and will not back down from the fight to win new clients and safeguard the future of their business.
Offshore sportsbooks violate federal and state laws in targeting U.S.-based bettors
While offshore sportsbooks may not be illegal in the United States, they often misrepresent the law to lure consumers into using them. Unlike regulated sportsbooks, offshore sportsbooks do not have consumer protections to protect their customers’ funds and data. In addition, many consumers only realize their mistake when it is too late. Offshore sportsbooks also fail to provide a way to resolve consumer complaints and problems. In order to avoid this situation, sportsbooks should work with all aspects of the sports betting ecosystem.
Bovada is an unlicensed US sportsbook
The first thing you need to know is that Bovada is not legal to use in the US. In fact, the company is not even a licensed online casino or sportsbook. That makes it illegal for US banks to process payments for unlawful online gambling. Secondly, it is against the wire act to transmit interstate sports wagering information. Consequently, any transaction with Bovada would be a violation of both federal laws.
