Over these next few days West Virginia residents looking to place a bet on the Kentucky Derby will be seeing plenty of advertisements for TwinSpires.com, a US-based online horse racing site owned by Churchill Downs, which just happens to be where the Kentucky Derby is run each year. (a list of KNOWN TWINSPIRES.COM FORBIDDEN STATES appears below)  Scroll Down

While West Virginia residents can play on TwinSpires.com, they must be prepared to provide their social security number and understand that TwinSpires submits tax information to the U.S. Government.  While gamblers are certainly encouraged to pay their taxes on winnings, offering up one's social security number has its risks.  An international racebook like Sports Betting, which has been in business since 1999, might be a better option as they do not request your social security number or report to the IRS. 

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
