Can I Bet on TwinSpires From Iowa?

Over these next few days you will be seeing plenty of advertisements for TwinSpires.com.  But TwinSpires requires you to provide a social security number and reports winnings.  Instead, a host of racebook sites licensed outside the state are happy to take your Kentucky Derby bets from nearly all US states and Puerto Rico and will not ask you for your social security number.  BetOnline offers a generous welcome bonus (max bonus $1000).

Because TwinSpires is based in the United States, they tend to abide by state regulations.

It should be noted that there is another tremendous drawback to joining TwinSpires.com:  You’ll need to provide them with your social security number for IRS tax purposes, and not all folks feel comfortable disclosing their social security number over the Web to some horse betting site. 

A site like BetOnline, which has been operating since 1999:  That’s not the case. BetOnline offers top rebates as well as being endorsed by Gambling911.com.

TwinSpires.com does not accept bets from these states.

Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Puerto Rico, The Virgin Islands, Canada

In 1896, the Straits Racing Association and Penang Turf Club were established. As a result, horse racing in Malaysia has a rich history.
