Some of our online betting reports have been receiving a lot of traffic from people looking for information about the legal online betting age. I’ve decided to compile a report on the legal age for Internet sports betting in various countries. Most people who want to know what the legal betting age is in 2013 are from the USA. This report should not be considered legal advice. I’m just listing the minimum age for real money account holders at the top betting sites online. That doesn’t mean that the betting age at a particular bookmaker is the actual legal betting age in your country. I’ve never heard of an online sports bettor, poker player or casino gambler actually getting into any trouble over the last 10 years but that only counts for Americans. In the UK, Canada and Europe the online gambling laws are much more relaxed or even non-existent.
Legal Online Betting Age For Americans
The legal online betting age for U.S. citizens in 2013 is not really relevant because there are no firm federal or state laws that are specifically for online betting. The legal casino gambling age in the USA varies from 18 to 21. Online sports betting sites generally accept players from the USA that are 18 years or older. Horse race betting is legal – online or offline – once you are 18 years old. You can bet on sports, entertainment and politics online without having to worry about legal troubles even if your state requires casino gamblers to be 21. Sports betting is frowned upon but not specifically illegal so as long as you meet the sportsbooks minimum age requirement you will have no trouble depositing money, betting and withdrawing your winnings in 2013. Here are some minimum betting age requires at the best US sports betting sites in 2013.
