    Hey guys,

    I recently wanted to start to bet on esports games, using e gaming bets (its a website)

    Obviously, its illegal in the US, but i was wondering if i could use a VPN to get a IP address of another country where its legal. Are there many risks involved?

    Thanks

    Ohhh jeeeeze please don't get wrapped up in that whole MLG scandal where people DDOS the opposing players just to win bets. Play fair & legal. Better ways to make money.

    Alright fair enough. Have you read anything about the rise in faulty esports betting? The outcome from betters has become manipulated by people dossing the opponents just to win bets. If you're putting your own money on the line then you could be a victim of it as well.

    Anyway... Just a heads up. There is no good in betting on that type of thing right now if you ask me. It's happening everywhere.

    But a VPN should work just fine ;)

    Depends the method of paiment.
    The site might refuse any US paypal account, or bank account when it comes to the withdrawal. You should check the TOS on their site.
