How does responsible gambling tie in with this?

Responsible gambling is crucial in ensuring the safety and well-being of customers.

The US Gaming Control Board has implemented a range of guidelines that US sportsbooks should adhere to in order to protect customers’ well-being. Some of these initiatives include deposit limits, self-exclusion, readily available help, and profits being used to fund charity organizations including NCP Gambling.

Are betting sites licensed to operate in my country?

In the US, gambling legislation is dictated by the state. Hence, some states have legal sports betting while some do not. All US-licensed sportsbooks must clearly show their license number, company registration details, and address in the footer of their website and in marketing emails.

How are sites selected on LegalSportsbooks.com?

Our team looks at a wide range of factors but with a particular focus on customer safety.

Such factors include:

  • Fully regulated and licensed (this is a 100% requirement under US law)
  • Fair payouts and deposit/withdrawal fees
