Can I Bet With USRacing.com From Texas

While USRacing.com is accessible to those living in the state of Texas, Gambling911.com recommends and endorses BetOnline for its 7% weekly rebates and generous welcome bonus (max bonus $1000).


Because of Texas' convoluted laws related to horse racing, most US-licensed sites have opted not to enter the market.  Internationally licensed racebooks have helped to fill the void.

The state made its opinion known back in 2011.

The Texas Racing Commission sent out letters that year to various horse betting sites licensed in the US, making it clear that they could lose their licenses.  International sites for the most part remained undaunted, mainly since they do not physically accept bets inside the United States. 

“The TRC's letter cautioned of “enforcement proceedings to impose penalties for violations.” In addition, the letter said the Texas comptroller “may examine the books, records, officers and employees of any company authorized or permitted to do business in Texas that is involved in pari-mutuel wagering.”

More great news: Most of these online racebooks accessible to those in Texas do not require one to provide their social security number.
