Is it safe to do sports betting online in Washington state?
I am a foreigner on a work visa but considered a resident alien by IRS.
I did a few research online and it seems that sports betting is a felony in Washington state, but still I wonder if it is safe to do it as I need some entertainment and another way to make lucky money.
Currently there are a few websites located outside US that support deposit/cash-out by cryptocurrencies. I plan to buy some bitcoin in Coinbase and send it to the betting site.
How likely will I get caught? I am not really sure how bitcoin works and how government orgs come into play in this situation.
Is my internet provider able to find out that I visit certain betting sites?
Thoughts? Anybody doing something similar?
