after searching for hours for casinos compatible with mac I came across this site

http://www.americanplayercasinos.com

They have a great list of casinos that accept US players and they have a mac section that all the online casinos really work. Just thought I'd pass it along

I can haz cigar?
Online gambling has been outlawed in the USA, so there is no regulation and no way
to know if the online gambling site you choose is reputable and not just ripping you off.

Why would anyone in thier right mind want to gamble with real money at an online casino???

It is also highly suspicious that your first and only post as a new member
(Join Date: Aug 2005??) is a link to mac compatible online casinos.....

Actually most online casinos are regulated be organizations just as a casino in Rio, or anywhere else Its no different than gambling out of the country. If the casinos did not adhere to their payout regulations they would lose their membership and would loose money It it just like electronic slots at a casino here. And actually it is illegal for a bank to take a transaction form a american bank that is why you use a intermediate similar to paypal no individual has ever been in trouble for internet gambling and just because it is not a american company regulating these casinos doesnt mean anything (like everything they were probably trained by a american company). I am not here to argue with you but I find gambling fun and I was just trying to help people out because I searched for 2 hours before I found this site.

Of course there are casinos out there that are not reputable but the majority are legit. If I worked for my money I should be able to do with it what I choose.

Gambling laws vary from state to state, but most have strict "no gambling" laws (with exceptions like Nevada and Louisiana). This means that gambling with American dollars in or with a service that is not licensed by the state's gambling commission is illegal, no if, ands or buts about it. It is simply illegal in the United States to gamble using an off-shore casino that is not sanctioned by the state's individual gambling commission from within the borders of the United States. You can't even use an off-shore or international non-sanctioned gambling service from Las Vegas.

I'm not stating my personal opinions about gambling; I'm simply stating the facts. I may or may not agree with the laws governing gambling, I'm simply providing non-biased information about the legality of it.

Most of the off-shore and international gambling websites offer the ability to gamble using "play" money, which is completely legal anywhere in the United States.

My personal favorite used to be pokerroom.com, but I haven't visited there in some years.

Bodog has its head office, and is licensed in, the Caribbean nation of Antigua. The Bodog group of companies (www.bodoglife.com) offer a host of entertainment services, including online gambling, which includes Poker, Casino and a suite of other world-class products.

Bodog is operated in North America under License by Morris Mohawk Gaming Group.

All I am saying is no one has ever been prosecuted EVER for online gambling and companies like bodog dont operate in secrecy I have been playing Online for 8 years and have never had a problem playing or getting my winnings.

Being licensed in Antigua makes no difference in the United States. Morris Mohawk Gaming Group is based out of Canada -- again, that makes no difference in the United States.

In addition, Bodog's own terms and conditions state that if you intend to wager money, you agree to physically come to Antigua and abide by Antiguan laws.

https://www.bodoglife.com/help/financial/player-agreement.jsp

BY PLACING A WAGER WITH BODOG, THE PLAYER AGREES THAT PLAYER IS, FOR THE PURPOSES OF MAKING ANY WAGERING TRANSACTIONS, DEEMED TO COME TO ANTIGUA, THE JURISDICTION OF RESIDENCE OF BODOG, AND ARE ENTERING INTO TRANSACTIONS IN ANTIGUA UNDER THE LAWS OF ANTIGUA.
THE PLAYER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR OBSERVING GAMBLING PROHIBITIONS OF PLAYER'S RESPECTIVE OR RESIDENT COUNTRY.
That's a simple way to skirt around United States anti-gambling laws. They wouldn't put that in their terms and conditions if it were legal to wager American dollars in online gambling casinos.

Bodog isn't being secretive at all -- you're correct -- in fact, they are saying, out loud, and in clear terms, that any and all activity that occurs on their site concerning wagering and gambling with real money must be done outside of the borders of the United States and Canada, and any other country that has laws preventing the wagering of real money in online casinos. By agreeing to Bodog's terms and conditions, you are agreeing to this, and it is in plain sight when you create an account with them.

While it's true that it may be impossible to find someone who has been prosecuted for online gambling, it is extremely easy to find people who were denied a payout of their winnings due to the laws of the United States. It's not a fear of being prosecuted, it's a fear of not being able to get back the money you put into the gambling site as well as your winnings.

Credit card companies cannot and will not entertain nor authorize transactions from online gambling casinos. Using PayPal is a way to skirt around those laws.

I'm not trying to say to everyone, "Don't gamble online," I'm simply saying, "Be aware that gambling with American dollars in any kind of off-shore, international, online casino is illegal, and your experience collecting winnings may be adversely affected by this fact."

Agreed However I have never had a online casino not pay me these are reputable companies that do millions of dollars business and they all payout in checks if needed or pay to a account like netteller or alike. If they were not paying out checks to americans they would be out of business because noone would play If you want to play online play If you dont, dont as simple as that.

They also advertise in no uncertain terms US Players Accepted

I never said anything about the reputation of the gambling companies, nor their track records in paying out.

I did say that credit card companies will refuse to honor transactions from online gambling casinos.

They also advertise in no uncertain terms US Players Accepted
"Player" is a much different term than "gambler." "Gambler" means someone who wagers while gambling with real money. "Player" simply means someone who "plays" the game, and does not carry with it any connotation of wagering. That's why they say "US Players Accepted" and not "US Gamblers Accepted."

Again, I must explain that I'm not trying to dissuade anyone from gambling online, nor am I persuading anyone to gamble online. I am simply stating the legality of gambling online, and the fact of the matter remains that if you gamble online from within the borders of the United States, you are breaking the law and may have trouble getting paid. Just because you have never had any trouble getting payouts does not mean that everyone will have no trouble getting payouts.

My family ran a very successful internet gambling site out of Costa Rica (mvpsportsbook.com) before it was sold to a larger company. I know more than my fair share about the legality of online gambling with respect to United States laws. While the majority of the profits of that company probably came from gamblers using the site from within the U.S., that doesn't in any way make it legal to do so.

The short and skinny of it is: if you gamble online with real money from within the United States, you are breaking the law. Even in places where gambling is legal, like Las Vegas. Las Vegas doesn't want people's gambling losses to profit some off-shore company, believe me. They want people to gamble in Las Vegas, and lose in Las Vegas, so that Las Vegas casinos get the money -- not some American running a gambling site outside of the country.

in a 2007 Catherine Hanaway admitted There is no federal law against playing online. U.S. Attorney Catherine Hanaway admitted in a 2007 House hearing that just placing wagers online isn't against federal law. Players might run afoul of state laws, but even that is rare. The one case we know of is Jeffrey Trauman, of North Dakota, who paid a $500 fine on what was probably over $100,000 in sports bet winnings. www.americanplayercasinos.com

I know it does'nt make it legal but it makes me feel better.

But what if I told you that playing in a casino is not as cool as placing bets on bookmaker sites? I have one such for you azscore.com. Just try it once and you'll love it. I've been making money like that for a year now and have already bought myself a new car.
