Yup, they pay almost twice as much as any state lotto. They are also one of the most popular web destinations for online gamblers. Feds are just like the cops, they only show up when ur trying to have a good time. Maybe they should pay the Feds with DD gift cards.

Wow.  This must be the most naive statement I have ever heard.

"Feds are just like cops."

WTF?

Feds are really more like "SUPER" cops.

    That's because most prefer another option. Did that ever occur to you, or do you have a habit of wearing blinders all the time?

    Maybe the SUPERCOPS are aware of the other options? 

    Me personally I like to get paid in cocoa beans.  Just something out of willy wonka!!!

    Boy I need to watch that movie while doing my W/O!!!

      It's no skin off my nose if you pretend you're getting $900 to $1 from an illegal betting site.

      I thought the odds dictated the payouts.

      900 to 1?

      Is that mathematically feasible or even close to correct?

      Why would "legal" games in the U.S. have such lower payouts? 

      Who is really stealing here?

        U said "This must be the most naive statement I have ever heard." U think the Feds and cops do same thing? I don't think u know the difference between $hit and ur oatmeal.

        And what about this statement by some idiot who made a fool out of himself through and through during STD? I believe ur the reason why Sully started the STD challenge.

        "Yes.  I am the hottest predictor.  NOBODY can dethrone me!!!  Just try it!!!  Steve Player is a termite I P--S on!!!

        Just try and beat me!!  My algorithm is better than the MUSL chief of security!!!  I don't even have to cheat!!! 

        I dare any of you the LP community to dethrone the SilverLion KING of LP!!!!!

        You got nothing!!!!!!  Nothing!!!!!"

         

        I got the second most $ in the STD challenge, how much u got? Not a dam penny. I'm only a first year rookie. U said u don't need to cheat? I think u need to cheat ur a$$ off just to get a $40 box hit.

        Still think ur the greatest? Yea u r, the greatest idiot on LP.

            Did you miss where I said "if you pretend you're getting $900 to $1 from an illegal betting site"?

            And are you now admitting you're breaking the law by illegally laundering money into an offshore gambling account?

            I never said I use the Amazon cards. You seriously have a comprehension problem. That is why I wrote earlier that most people use an alternative method than the cards. Should I write in really big fonts?

                "no federal law against playing lottery online."

                 

                This is true. A few weeks ago I did a little research on the Tax laws concerning this. I won't bore you with the details, but the bottom line is that it's NOT illegal to bet at that site. What is illegal is the FUNDING METHODS for your account balance. So what that site did is to take advantage a loophole by naming third party companies with no gambling related words in their names to make the transactions. This way, your bank will never suspect you are sending money to that place.

                Recently they stopped using Western Union because WU is now blacklisting people who send money to that country. Usually the first or second time won't send a red flag, but continual use will put you on a blacklist even though you never use that site's name specifically. 

                I personally will never, ever again try to use Western Union.  Tried to send money to a friend who was visiting New Orleans with a credit card.  This wench calls back with all kinds of questions of why I wanted to send the money, etc.  They then denied the transaction.  They suck big time.

                  I always thought it was a scam.

                  I win I know I can go to store and get my money.

                  Why should I wait for my money and also can't get what you win all at once.

                  Sure sounds like a scam to me.

                  Can't believe people are so stupid to even do it online !!

                  seriously? i know it's harder for u s customers but i've never had an issue.

                  got paid every time i requested money.

                  p.s. doesn't mean it's easier to win just because you got more options.

                  the swings of gambling!

                      One more thing

                       

                      Im 31 years old and for my 31 years I have heard and saw illegal gambling everywhere some companies may stay on the low low for years and some companies after big winnings and can't handle the payout it all depends....

                       

                      Anything or anywhere that has a lot of traffic will be seen...

                       

                      Illegal gambling has millions of dollars behind it because they will pay out more then what's usual from your local corner stores

                       

                      Not paying taxes on a big win is the problem that create all these illegal gambling companys..

                       

                      Believe me this is not the end of this story...

                       

                       

                      Its crazy because not to long a go a known company got busted and the FBI shut them down for a fact for illegal gambling...

                       

                      People it been every where its just getting worst just becareful...

                      2016 is about done let's go into 2017 with more $$$$$ in our banks.

                          Interesting. So , the feds have found a new way to try to seize U.S. people goods.. Why is it sound like a brother State instead of the United State? You know they don,t have to comply to your demand. Better yet , they could just take their sweet time about doing it just like the U.S.

                            Remember the IRS/US government and their strong arm tactics several years ago?  They somehow forced the Swiss bankers to release the names of all U.S.A. citizens who had secret Swiss bank accounts.  I was hoping that sovereign nation would have told them too bad so sad we're not complying.

                              900 to 1?

                              Is that mathematically feasible or even close to correct?

                              Why would "legal" games in the U.S. have such lower payouts? 

                              Who is really stealing here?

                              I questioned how they could pay $900 to $1 ten years ago when I first came to LP and the legality. The LP members living outside the U.S. verified the payoffs, but it's still illegal for U.S. residences regardless of claims made by some of our LP members. Most states have payout limits and that's based on $500 and $5000 to $1 payouts so the real question how could a gambling site with a limited number of players payoff huge winning wagers.

                              "Why would "legal" games in the U.S. have such lower payouts?"

                              It's difficult to sort out whether or not some U.S. LP players are actually playing offshore because to my knowledge not one of them ever verified they are. An educated guess is there is a limit on how much an individual player can wager on a number.

                              There is no legal method for U.S. players to get money into offshore (out of country) gambling sites thought screams like using Amazon gift cards were tried. The feds go after the sites, but the players are usually left holding the bag.
