    There are still a few sites that accept US players. The law that was passed did not make it illegal to gamble online, but cracked down on financial institutions doing transactions with these online gambling websites.

    Just do a Google search and you can find many sites that have a list of payment options and a directory of casinos that still accept players from the US. It's can still be done, but it's a little more difficult now.

    I read somewhere once about signing up through a proxy outside of the US and giving a fake address to get into a casino where US players are banned.

    I have been using bodoglife.com (formerly bodog.com) for about 2 years now. Many funding options and I have never had an issue. Only thing is now they mail checks rather than do funds transfer to your account. Very professional site- also if youre new to gambling in general they have great tutorials.

    what do you play boogie ? poker ?

    Poker seems to be the best way for me, anything else is a game of chance, where poker is still a game of skill...

    i had a look at roulette ages ago, but the truth is on a computer, it is PURE chance, due to the way the computer generates things...

    in real life, sure ppl can make big dollar from roulette and blackjack, but on computers it can be very difficult.. you will see lots of systems that say u can get rich off roulette, but I for one think it is very difficult. in the past i have profited from poker, and sports betting - as they both require a bit of nouse - i.e. you need to know a little about the game, and the odds are not calculated - with poker, if you have a table of 6 idiots, you will surely skank em. the same with sports betting, you develop a system, and because the odds are 'natural' if you bet long enough you're guaranteed to win - eventually.

    if anyone has some reliable sports betting systems, i'd be interested to get a ref.link and try em out, but sadly im a bit low on cash at the minute.. oops.

    if you live in US and already have a registered comp/corp apply for a business credit card with WaMu or a larger local bank; these cards are accepted everywhere (amex wont work)

    Good Luck.

    Just caught this thread... I live in the U.S. and I just gambled online with GoldenCasino.com -- see thread:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/13137-668-2-5-hours.html

    I even used my credit card to make a $500 deposit so apparently, it can be done.

    There are numerous others all still accept US players. Just alot harder to cash out and deposit. I still have my account with Absolute Poker, but havn't played in quite some time and stopped promoting them months ago.

    Where there's a will there's a way...
