In the United Kingdom and several other countries around the world, citizens enjoy unfettered access to sportsbook websites and online casinos. Not so in the United States, where the 2006 Unlawful Internet Gaming Act not only prohibits gambling online but also makes it extremely difficult for Americans willing to break to the law to use their credit cards to fund an online gambling account.

Placing an online bet with a bookie for a particular team to win a sporting event is illegal in the United States. But choosing a group of sports players, earning points based on the performance of said players, and then winning money from other participants who selected a different group of sports players—that is completely, 100% legal.
