Can I Bet on the Kentucky Derby From Pennsylvania?

Pennsylvania residents can bet on the Kentucky Derby from most offshore wagering sites like Bookmaker, which has been in operation since 1986.  They offer top cash bonuses and an easy-to-use website.  Credit cards are accepted. 

There are restrictions when it comes to betting at one of the handful of US-based horse betting sites like XpressBet and TwinSpires from PA.

For example, residents located within 35 miles of Parx, Penn National, Pocono Downs, Harrahs Philly, or Presque Isle Downs are prohibited from opening Xpressbet accounts.  That includes folks living in the Philadelphia area.
