Is it legal to bet on the 72nd Annual Emmy Awards?
Yes. Betting on Emmy Awards winners is legal as long as it is done with an international sportsbook operating within a regulated jurisdiction outside of the USA or with a domestic USA sportsbook offering entertainment lines. Federal and state gaming regulations provide no guidance or rules regarding wagering with an international entity online, so betting on the Emmy’s with an offshore book won’t get anyone into trouble.
Connecticut and Washington have laws on the books that forbid all online gambling, but the betting sites we recommend accept members from those states. That’s because the laws in CT and WA are intended to prevent illegal providers, and because their state agencies have no jurisdiction over any betting activity occurring outside of their borders.
