Welcome to UnitedGamblers.com, the place to immerse yourself with the latest information regarding legal online gambling in the US.
Our aim, primarily, is to make sure American bettors enjoy a safe and fun online wagering experience.
Whether it's providing the latest developments around the legality of US gambling from state-to-state, or, reviewing licensed betting sites for your state, we have all of your gambling needs taken care of.
What's our story?
Our story stems from our enjoyment of gambling. Be it sports betting, casino, or poker, we're a bunch of guys who enjoy the thrill of having a flutter as much as you do.
This enthusiasm led us to create our first poker comparison website in 2006, which, let's just say, was far from successful in the beginning as we balanced our new venture with our regular jobs. Over time, though, we noticed a gradual hike in traffic. Like-minded players were clearly on-board with what we were doing.
This encouraged us to make the site even better and, with the number of visitors rising each day, we set about expanding our team. Freelancers and full-time employees were hired to produce quality content and help grow the site further. And we haven't looked back since!
Today, we're an office full of guys and girls working on content for review and comparison websites across all online gambling verticals. There aren't many people who can claim to work with something they love. But we certainly can!
Regulated online casinos and poker sites have been active in the state of New Jersey since 2013. But it was the repeal of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) in 2018 that really opened the door to legal gambling in the US as we know it today.
The federal ban on states, other than Nevada, being allowed to offer sports betting had stood since 1992. Having been prohibited from offering single-game wagering under the now overturned law, states are making up for lost time.
Nineteen states (and D.C) currently have an active form of legalized sports betting. A handful of these states have decided to expand online gambling options and make online casinos and poker sites legal too. On top of that, a further six states are due to launch sports betting imminently and five more states have active legislation on the table.
In short, there's a lot going on. A lot of launches, a lot of information, and a hell of a lot to make sense of.
United Gamblers was created to provide the American bettor with all the knowledge to gamble safely where they reside. From helping US bettors to understand online gambling laws and recommending safe and regulated online gambling sites, UnitedGamblers.com is a website dedicated to the constantly evolving US gambling industry.
What we do
At UnitedGamblers.com, we provide:
Information on the legality of online gambling in the US
We first aim to ensure your online wagering experience is not only fun but 100% safe. We do this by explaining the legal situation of online gambling state-by-state and showing you which gambling sites have been approved in accordance with the market regulator. To maintain accuracy, we use the American Gaming Association as a reference point.
Reviews of online gambling sites
With the choice of sites vast in some states (i.e. New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Indiana) finding a site that suits your needs can take some time. Using our knowledge of the US market and expertise in the gambling industry as a whole, we write reviews of licensed gambling sites. This makes it easier for you to differentiate between gambling sites and find exactly what you want.
How we review US online gambling sites
In order to keep our reviews balanced, we measure gambling sites across six criteria we believe to be the most important for a high-performing gambling site. Sometimes, we will deviate away from these key measures to discuss unique features that we feel you should know about. But, in general, all of our reviews are based on the following:
- Availability - Where is the operator licensed and active?
- Customer support - How easy can you reach out to the operator?
- Mobile experience - Can you bet/play on your mobile device?
- Payment options - Are there a range of banking options available for deposits and withdrawals?
- Welcome Bonus Offer - How does the bonus promo for new customers compared with other operators?
- Variety - Is there a good selection of sports or casino games available?
