The answer to this question is a simple yes, for the most part. All of the Federal laws that have been passed in the United States affect the poker sites, not the players. The media however have largely mislead Americans, giving off the impression that gambling online is illegal in America. Looking at the facts, no one in all over America has been accused of, or convicted of internet gambling.
US online poker sites
While some sites do not accept US poker players due to regulatory concerns, some of the most well-known online poker sites in the market continue to operate. Online poker sites such as Bovada Poker or Americas Cardroom all still welcome American poker players with open arms.
These poker sites still accept credit card deposits, and are considered to be solid places to play online poker. Each of these sites is backed by a history of providing secure poker for more than a decade.
