Explaining the Grey Area of Online Gambling
In many countries online gambling is legal to a certain extent, meaning that there is a grey area in the law. We have not mentioned certain countries as they fall in this grey area where it’s neither legal or illegal. Horse racing isn’t explicitly described as gambling in many countries, which is why it’s one of the most accepted forms of betting from a global perspective.
If your country is not included we suggest that you contact the provider or the agency responsible for gambling in your country in order to check whether or not BetAmerica is a betting option for you. Remember that the website might not be blocked in your country, but that does not explicitly imply that it is a legal form of betting.
In some countries regulation on betting allows foreign operators but not local operators, or does not explicitly forbid foreign operators, leaving a gap in the regulatory system.
Where is BetAmerica Banned to use?
The BetAmerica website only explicitly mentions a few states in the US in which you cannot bet. The information below is based on individual regulations surrounding the legality of betting, and whether or not the definition of betting includes horse racing. Moreover, if horse racing is legal, greyhound racing is also considered to be allowed as they fall under the same umbrella called racing.
