Traveling from one state without online sports betting to another with online sports betting this holiday season? Merry Christmas to you.
We get a lot of questions about betting rules and regulations in one state when you live in another. The good news is that you can bet once you’re in this state with very little friction. It is absolutely legal to do so.
Here are seven frequently asked questions and answers.
1. Can I bet in a state even if I don’t live there?
Yeah. You just need to be 21 and within state limits to bet.
Here’s where online sports betting is legal:
Some states like New Hampshire (DraftKings) and Rhode Island (Caesars) have only one online bookie available. Others like New Jersey and Colorado have over 20 pounds to bet on.
2. Should I use my parent’s address?
No. Use all of your own information, including your real address. There is nothing illegal or wrong with registering with a bookmaker when you are in a legal state, even if you do not live there.
If you use incorrect information, the book probably will not be able to verify your bank account information and you will not be able to make a deposit. Then you will email customer service for several days until you give up.
3. Which bookmaker should I register with?
Which bookie you choose will depend on your condition and preferences. Not all books are available in all states, although DraftKings and FanDuel are available in most.
Here is our list of favorite sports bets and promo codes. We recommend that you possibly bet on several sports bets.
4. So what about this free money?

5. Can I withdraw when I get home?
Yes. The only thing you can’t do after you get home is bet. You can log in, deposit, withdraw, view your pending bets, etc.
Let’s say you’re in Pennsylvania for Christmas and bet on Alabama at the Cotton Bowl on Christmas Eve, then head back to New York on December 26.
If Tide’s coverage on Dec. 31, you can withdraw from New York. You don’t have to go back to Pennsylvania.
6. The bookmaker cannot verify my position. What’s up?
Sports betting uses your phone’s location services to verify that you are in legal status. This method is quite reliable.
On your laptop, it’s not as reliable. The books use a third party service called GeoComply which often has problems. Try these eight troubleshooting tips if he refuses to verify your location.
7. Can I bet on futures before I go?
Yeah. If you want to bet on the winner of the Super Bowl or Masters 2022, among hundreds of other futures markets, place those bets before leaving the legal betting state you are staying in. If they are successful, you can withdraw from your home.
