www.millis.org is an independent website that provides commentary on gambling laws, in addition to, independent reviews of legal online gambling sites accepting players. We are not associated with any online casino or bookmaker, nor do any betting or wagering tasks place on this website.
You’re also responsible to find out if gambling is legal where you live. Gambling, whether online or offline, isn’t legal everywhere. Legalized online gambling for real money may not be available to all visitors. It is each person’s responsibility to verify with their local gaming commission or government official whether online gambling is legal or illegal in their jurisdiction. Please check the gambling regulations in your jurisdiction before gambling online, as they vary from state to state. Namely, residents of Louisiana, Washington State, Illinois, Oregon, Indiana, Nevada, Montana, and South Dakota should learn the various laws related to Internet gaming, as laws in those states might relate to players wishing to gamble online.

The bottom line is that casinos, poker rooms, and sportsbooks are all designed to make a long-term profit. If you play games of chance long enough that offer a negative edge you’ll lose money eventually. Some players are able to win in the long term playing poker or betting on sports but most players don’t.
A few players are able to beat the casinos but it’s rare. These players play in live casinos. I’m not aware of any players who beat the online casinos in the long run and you can’t count on doing so, even with the use of bonuses.
Nothing you learn on this site can guarantee that you’ll win money in the short or long run. You can’t count on anything even offering you a real chance to win. The safest path is assuming you’ll lose any money you decide to gamble with online or in a live gambling facility.
The only guarantee that can be offered is if you don’t gamble you won’t lose any money gambling. If you prescribe to the idea that a penny saved is a penny earned you probably don’t want to start gambling because it’s almost the opposite.
You need to check your local laws to see if you can legally gamble online. Don’t make the mistake of believing everything you read in the news or online. The best option is to check with a lawyer before playing.
Here’s an example:
Many people believe that online gambling is illegal. The press is guilty of spreading this lie repeatedly.
The truth is only a few places in the currently have specific laws outlawing online gambling. A few places have specific laws that legalize it, but most of the country doesn’t have specific laws either way. Of course, you can’t use any of this as legal advice.
The only way to know for sure is to research the laws yourself or talk to a lawyer who understands the laws. Sadly, most local attorneys don’t know all of the laws about gambling.
Most players simply play if they can without worrying about the laws. This isn’t a good plan, but I know players who do it. I also know players who play if they know other players who play. This also isn’t a good plan.
The only bit of good news is that governments historically tend to go after the owners of the sites instead of the players, but counting on this isn’t a good idea either. Even if the government ignores you as a player and you have money in a site that they shut down you can lose your money or have it tied up for a long time, possibly years.
