Is It Legal to Play Blackjack Online for Money?

No, there is no federal law that prevents you from playing blackjack online for money. However, some states have declared online gambling as illegal but getting prosecuted is extremely rare. What’s more, the prosecution would be for the establishment that is offering online blackjack gambling rather than the player.

Many states allow gambling online, and you can play blackjack as one of the games that are offered. What’s more, there are land-based casinos with an online casino version of their casino where you can play various casino games.
