Horse betting is legal in the United States

Within the United States, it is legal to bet on horses. This means that all betting racebooks that Americans access are usually licensed for American use only. If you live outside of the U.S., do not worry. There are worldwide racing books that will allow you to place an exotic horse wagers without being a United States resident.

Onshore websites typically offer parimutuel betting. This means that there is no “house” or bookmaker. Instead, all of the money that is bet throughout one pool will stay in one pool. Offshore websites offer track odds for most types of bets (Win, Place, Show) but limit the amount of payouts for exotic bets (Exacta, Trifecta, Superfecta) to a certain cap which vary from one company to another.

Making a deposit for your Derby bet

When you are ready to start using a web site to place a Kentucky Derby bet, entering your password and username is easy enough.

If you are trying to place a bet the day of the derby, you will most likely choose to use your credit card because it is instantaneous.

Remember, if there is a conflict between the address you list in the login and the credit card address you use for billing, the processor may deny the transaction.  This is for the protection of the website and the custom.  Reputable firms must “know their customer.” Try to set up your first betting account in advance.

Once you log onto your first wagering account, you will soon see that there several betting terms that you may not be familiar with. In general, a new gambler should stick with the straight wagers such as placing a bet on a single horse in the win, place, and show categories.

For those gamblers looking for Kentucky Derby betting that is more advanced, the exotic horse wagers are definitely unique territory. Examples of exotic wagers include the exacta, quinella, trifecta, and superfecta bets.
