Online Sportsbook withdrawals in the US

It was the summer of 2018. The Golden State Warriors had just won the NBA Finals, Cardi B’s ‘I like it’ had just topped the charts and the US Senate unexpectedly removed the federal ban on sports betting.

Three years have passed and it’s fair to say we’ve moved on. The Warriors have flopped, Cardi B is still going strong and over a dozen states have now fully legalized online sports betting. That is everyone but the US banks who are still stuck in the heady days of 2018, when sports betting was still a taboo and the industry was dominated by offshore sharks - eager to accept your wagers without any accountability.

Despite legal sports betting in a number of states, banks routinely block funds between banks and sportsbooks.

This is especially true of withdrawals which can be incredibly frustrating for successful sports bettors who after winning their bets can't get their cash out.

The reason for this is that the banks are simply not able to keep pace with the legislation sweeping the country. Every six months new states pass a bill or go live with sports betting. They are also not able to keep track of which online sportsbooks have been granted a license in which state. Instead they often classify legal and licensed sportsbooks - like PointsBet - in the same category as illegal offshore sportsbooks.

This largely affects Visa and Mastercard transfers, so the good news is that there are a number of reliable and easy-to-use middlemen - such as PayPal - that can be to shuffle your money between your bank account and your sportsbook.
