    It seems that there is a ton of issues with slow pay or no pay offshore. With Pennsylvania legalizing online sports wagering, is it a no brainer that we Pennsylvanians stick instate or do we hit up the offshore for the free half points or other goodies? Any advice is appreciated.

    Think the safety of your money should be number 1 priority. I use to be strictly offshore now I stay with my local. I have never used bitcoin seems some people here love it. I just like simplicity and safe. There was a time not to long ago where I would race around wasting my time to get my accounts funded chasing a free play or some type of bonus. Too many strings attached not worth it. If you can get your winnings without waiting a month for a check to clear or walk into your bank and have a teller say I can’t do anything with this got old for me. Find a good local that’s tax free there out there

    why does it have to be one or the other...as both have their benefits.I don't ever see me giving up my offshore Sb's and I live only 30 miles from Tioga Downs in NY one of only four legal sports books here.

    Do your homework ..select the best option(s) for what you bet on and enjoy. Offshore has relly improved recently and we have many top rated books available;e on the top of this page.

    Any time I checked legal US based books lately, their odds were usually total crap compared to the offshore bookies.
    Who has the same experience?

    i agree. perhaps wait and see what the PA books offer for lines during the usual team sports. shopping better lines is kina important so i would keep my options wide open there. the best offshores do send withdrawals quickly and a long as u stay under the radar you won't get limited.

    I have accounts at Bookmaker & Heritage, and they consistently offer odds equal to,
    or better than, Sportsbetting or Bovada, where I also bet. Only rarely do I see better
    odds on SB, and never on Bovada. I'll probably get rid of Bovada and sign up on
    LowVig; I want to have several outs even though I'm a small-timer.
