HEADLINE: Internet Gambling at Casinos, Poker Rooms, and Sportsbooks is Safe

Internet gambling has not diminished in popularity since the United States passed the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act in October of 2006, however, many people who enjoy playing at online casinos, poker rooms, and sports books are seeking information on whether it is legal and safe for them to play online from places like their local newspaper, and many are receiving wrong information in reply.

One such question recently asked to an editor of a Miami, Florida paper was 'is it safe to play online', which the editor replied with the answer that now that BetOnSports has run away with money, players can no longer trust online offshore operators. Although it is true that BetOnSports screwed over their players, they are merely one example of the 2,300 gambling sites online and should not be seen as the norm of the industry.

When the gambling bill passed and London companies bailed out of the US market, they did NOT screw over their players. The major gambling operators, such as, Party Poker, and others walked away gently from the US market after respectably refunding every US player. Even the shadier casinos that are operated by Playtech software paid out their players before they left the market.

BetOnSports was an individual case in which their executives were arrested and detained in the US, as a result they shut down their business and ran for cover, screwing over everyone in their path. That is an extremely atypical case.

So to answer the question that many non-addicted regular US gamblers who simply enjoy a bit of online gambling entertainment every once in a while have, 'is online gambling still safe', this author is saying a resounding 'yes'.

Internet gambling is still a competitive market where if a casino were to cheat a player they would go bankrupt and be blacklisted so fast it would make a dog's head spin.
