First, let me say thanks to Michael Shackleford for all that he does for the gaming community. I am a much more informed gambler and this has increased my enjoyment of gaming immensely.

With that being said, I wanted to get some opinions on the best online casino options for a US player like myself. I do plan to start playing with Bovada, but what other options are out there?

Thanks in advance for the response and good luck to all of you.

I don't know what options are all out there, but you may have heard of the relatively recently discovered swindle that occurred with (was it Betfair?), and the Gibraltar something-or-other pretend regulator who is doing absolutely nothing about it.

Bovada isn't just the best bet, it's the only bet (as far as I'm concerned) because if you do have a legitimate problem of any kind, The Wizard is going to go to bat for you and everything will be made right. Bovada offers a wide selection of games, and outstanding customer support.

Since any recommended online casino has the unregulated free option to go rogue anytime they please with no dire consequences to fear, (just research the endless rogue online casino history over the past decade) I'm sure Bovada isn't going to tip off the Wizard should they decide to join that endless and ever growing good casino to rogue casino list.

Even worst would be recommending any online casino to any USA player. The risks of getting paid should they win, and the delay tactics being employed by the casinos because of these risks, (warranted or just a good excuse to delay payments for months) should also be taken into consideration. USA players don't have a leg to stand on and only have the shoulders of someone's connections to lean on for problems. There is nothing any USA player and or the affiliates who recommend them to online gaming sites can do legally whats so ever for the safety of the customer.

I personally prefer having legal rights and regulators on my side when gambling and have issues rather then being at the mercy of an affiliate who's mediating on my behalf, but who also is on the payroll of the casino that's trying to screw me.

With the present handshake regulators refusing to enforce their own regulations; confirmed again by the most recent scandal letting several confirmed cheating casinos and software providers off the hook, it amazes me how this present online gaming environment can still survive; which could only confirm how few players must actually know what is really going on.

Combine all that with all the DOJ issues in the recent past and always still present with bank and processor seizures consisting of casinos and USA players money - why would a USA player ever want to risk any money online? I'd say you would have a safer chance of driving a bus through Manhattan (NY) blindfolded during rush hour and getting to your destination in one piece.

Like that quote from the movie Forest Gump "RUN USA PLAYER RUN"
