No. State law prohibits the transmission or receipt of any wager or gambling information intended to be used for bookmaking or other unauthorized gambling activity. It is also illegal under federal law, including the Federal Wire Wager Act (18 U.S.C. § 1084), to operate a betting or wagering business using telephone lines or other “wire communication facility.”

Federal prosecutors have successfully prosecuted United States citizens with businesses based offshore under the Wire Wager Act. Mary Jo White, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, has stated publicly that offshore sports betting operators who use the telephones, Internet, or other forms of wire communications to solicit bettors from the United States are acting in violation of federal law, and that her office will continue to monitor and vigorously prosecute offshore sports betting operations that engage in “blatantly illegal activity.”

Although online or Internet gambling is legal in other countries, for example, the Dominion Republic, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Germany, South Africa, Antigua, etc., it is illegal for operators in such countries to accept wagers from people in the United States.
