Special: Four Online Casinos Accepting US PlayersPublished April 27, 2015 by Mike P
Much of the US is prevented from accessing domestic casino sites, but four foreign casinos are willing to accept US players.
Analysts are constantly forecasting a bright future for igaming in the US. However, approximately 95% of the country is prevented from accessing domestic casino sites. At present, it is only possible for residents of Delaware, Nevada, and New Jersey to access online casinos situated in the US.
There are potentially years ahead before online gambling will be widely legalised, which will mean a long wait for many igaming fans. In the meantime, there are some foreign casino sites willing to accept US players. Four in particular have accepted US residents for some time now. Key information on each US casino site is outlined below.
Slotland Casino has long been a pioneer among online casinos accepting US players. This is largely due to the independent nature of Slotland, an online casino that has been in operation since 1998. Slotland’s independence is underpinned by the fact that all of its igaming software is developed in-house, which is a rarity in this industry.
Highly creative video slots like Piggy Bank and Treasure Island are player favourites and cannot be found anywhere else. Meanwhile, Gods of Egypt and Grand Fortune are more recent releases to the games library. Gaming content can be accessed across desktop, Android, iPhone, iPad, and Wii. New accounts can receive $100 worth of free credit with a first deposit.
Rich Casino caters to US players who wish to play on Mac laptops and desktop computers. Although browser access allows for instant-play, Mac and Windows users have the option to download gaming software.
A first deposit with Rich Casino can claim up to $3,333 worth of free credit, while the casino is also generous in providing $15 worth of credit with no deposit required. Free credit can be used for blackjack, roulette, video slots, and more games.
Vegas Casino Online
Vegas Casino Online operates out of Panama and accepts US players. All casino games have been certified by Technical Systems Testing and can be accessed instantly in browsers by Windows or Mac users. However, the downloadable casino is only compatible for Windows users.
An array of player offers is available to reward first-time depositors, with deals available for playing table games, video slots, video poker, speciality games and more. Select credit cards and e-wallets are accepted as payment methods for this Realtime Gaming casino.
Las Vegas USA
Here is another Realtime Gaming site for this special feature. Also operating out of Panama, and with Technical Systems Testing certification, Las Vegas USA has proven pedigree. This online casino has been going strong since 1999, which makes it older than the vast majority of sites currently in existence.
Players have multiple variations of table games on hand, with lots of card games to experience, such as Pai Gow Poker and Caribbean Stud Poker. Slot games, video poker, and speciality games are also hosted by Las Vegas USA. An abundance of player offers are available at this site. Offers can be claimed depending on game preference.
