Is online gambling legal in the USA?
It depends where you live. Some states, such as New Jersey, have taken advantage of a US Supreme Court decision in May 2018 that the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PAPSA) was unconstitutional. To date, 11 states have adjusted their state law to allow sports but so far only around a quarter of them have fully committed to the process of taking it online with several other states in the process of full legalization.
Online poker is available in more states as is betting on horse racing (with only 13 states opposed to it), but full online sportsbook and casino gambling is limited to New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Nevada.

What is in the minimum age to gamble?
Currently set at 21
Once I’ve opened an account, can I gamble anywhere?
No, each online provider will use geo-tracking software to ensure you are physically located in the state for the service you are attempting to use.
Do I have to give my social security number?
Yes, the site you are trying to open an account with will need to authenticate your address, location and identity -- it is necessary for operators to ask for these details. However, they will only ask for the last four numbers of your SS to confirm who you are.
