Before you decide whether or not to play online, let me explain the state of the US market as it's a minefield and,
to be totally honest, I would advise residents to stick to playing at land-based casinos if you have the option
as it can be a lot less hassle, you'll get paid quicker and it's more fun anyway!
The UIGEA act of 2006 basically ousted all the big brands out of the US market although it stopped short of making online gambling illegal. Clearly however, the message was that the Government don't want unlicenced and untaxed operators in the USA.
Thus, the only operators who now accpet US players - and not from all States by the way - are listed below. There are plenty of others but not ones I would trust personally and those listed here are widely regarded as safe and reputable operators. That still doesn't guarantee hassle-free deposits and withdrawals though: many players find the delays way too much aggro to deal with, with 2-3 weeks to receive checks or transfers not being uncommon.
The bottom line is that a player needs to understand a) whether online gambling is legal in their state and b) that playing for real-money online is often a trying experience. But if you live in a State where it is aceptable and are patient, then the options below are your best choices by a country mile. You won't find familiar games like Cleopatra for real money in these casinos but there are some good, similar games. Of you could stick to playing the free slot games here at OCV of course!
The USA online casinos above are also featured at various points around the Online Casinos Vegas website,
either in banners, grids or tickers. All of the casinos featured on the website are safe and solid
casinos and for Americans, you should find a fair number that take you. One more piece of bad news is
that - at present - Americans cannot play IGT slot games online for real
money anywhere, as IGT block US players. Of course, you can play some games here at OCV for free no matter
where you live, with the Cleopatra slot being far and away the most
popular with US players.
Disclaimer: Although the UIGEA stopped short of making online casinos illegal in the USA,
each State has it's own laws. Therefore, USA players should make sure that it is legal to gamble online
before depositing and playing any of the USA online casinos featured on this site, or any other.
