After a long time poking around on various websites/schemes/ideas/.... I ended up choosing "online betting on sport events" and man!, this really turned $10 into $88, multibetting! on 4 soccer games which came through last night, fininshing with Barcelona and Bayern Munich match. (What a literature!!!)

Now I am a Romanian guy living in the U.S (whose initially was planed to criss-cross the Bronx borough touting for passengers!) but now I have way cooler Job!
P.S: I never took a shot at "illegally picking up fairs"!!!!

So you guys, Is it illegal to bet on sports online in the U.S?
Shall a designated website be based within the U.S to remove illegality and money laundery??
I placed my bets in bwin.com which is founded in Great Britain and by far I didn't have any problem withdrwaing my sexy profit off my account in bwin.com
I also never overshot my boundries in placing certain amount of bet (which was usually no more than $50) and always used the suggested-by-bwin-multibetting in the right side of my account to maximize "my profit". (Because when you multibet, if the 4 out of 4 matches is guessed correctly, you would have X3 profit than a sinlge,seperate bets on 4).

You're kidding right? There's plenty of sites out there that you can sports bet on. Your checks will say something like "Banc en Quebec" or "Singapore National Bank" though.

I hope this isn't a trap for sites to go get shut down.

Seems more like an advertisement for the particular site he raves about in his OP.

You can in Las Vegas.

Otherwise, daily fantasy sports (FanDuel, Draft Kings, etc) is as close as you'll come in most states. Online poker is banned in all but three states (and they are mostly intra-state/sucky), and IMO it's just a matter of time until DFS gets outlawed as well (it's already illegal in 4-6 states).

American freedom only goes as far as legislated morality (usually with a ambiguous religious basis) lets it.

Spoiler
In the next episode, David Aguilar asks for suggestions of countries he can move to.
