Why We Only Promote Legal Online Sportsbooks in VA

Online sportsbooks are 100% legal in Virginia, so there is no reason to risk playing at unregulated offshore providers. VirginiaIsForBettors.com knows the risks associated with those unlicensed offshore casino and sports betting sites. Why take risks with your bankroll or personal information? Why subject yourself to substandard or non-existent customer service? All sites reviewed here are overseen by the Virginia Lottery, and that keeps the player safe. All sites here are vetted for providing customers with the proper guidance. That peace of mind is priceless.

Our VirginiaIsForBettors.com experts have been around the gaming industry and around the country for more than a century. Respected journalists with stops in Virginia, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, West Virginia and Wisconsin, we’ve been there and reported on just about everything.

Responsible Gambling

We take responsible gambling seriously, as do the online gambling sites we recommend. We encourage every Virginia player to take a safe, responsible and smart attitude when it comes to online gaming and only bet what you can afford to lose. Additionally, all online VA betting sites provide a link for you to self-exclude or to set a daily time or loss limit. You can also ask the Virginia Lottery to instruct all online sportsbooks regulated by the state to ban you from playing for a set period of time. If you feel need help, you can go to sites such as the National Council on Problem Gambling.
