Hi - wonder if anyone can shed some light on this confusion. I live in the Caribbean and aside for the odd hurricane I keep running across another challenge. Because the internet provider here is hardly the most tech savvy bunch they route a lot of traffic through the USA, but not always. This means that on some casinos I can sometimes play (when the link does not go via the USA) and sometimes not (when it does). I have proved to the casinos where I live so they have no restrictions on my betting account but it seems odd to me that even though they know where I live (ie in a non restricted country) they still refuse to accept my bets on the days the link goes via the USA. Have you ever come across this before and if so what solution do you suggest? Asking the internet provider for help is a definite no no, 3rd world country etc, altho the quality of my connection is good. Any suggestions or help gratefully received. Thanks 🙂
I can't say I have heard of that problem before. But it doesn't surprise me. The problem would be that to the casino's server you would appear to be inside the USA and therefore blocked.
The immediate thing that springs to mind is using a VPN (virtual private network) connection. This "tunnels" your internet traffic through an encrypted connection and appears to the receiving website or casino to originate from wherever the VPN server is. eg:
You -> VPN Server in London -> Website
In that scenario the website thinks your traffic is coming from London.
I use witopia.net regularly for work purposes and to stream stuff from American video sites like Hulu from outside the USA (I haven't used it to access casinos though) and they give you many choices of VPN server location. And they are fairly cheap at only a few bucks a month.
One thing though - I would check with your casino first and explain the situation before you do it. Make sure you have a written/emailed confirmation that it is ok with them, so that there are no problems when you attempt to withdraw after a win.
Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing at a new casino.

Thanks Ed, great advice! Will keep you up to speed how this works - so far so good 🙂 Another question for you now though. From amongst your recommended casinos which are the best offering minimum bets of 0.1 or even better 0.01 bets on roulette straight up numbers? Look forward to hearing from you and thanks again - wish I had found your site yonks ago, still better late than never 😀
Hmm, thats one I don't know off the top of my head as I'm not a regular roulette player! Most tables I have seen start at a flat $/£/€1 minimum.
So I took a look around for you and found these:
All of them are rated 5 stars here and none of them prohibit play from the Dominican Republic so you should be good to go (assuming we detected your country properly!)
Great thanks a lot Ed, much appreciated. I have actually never played at Virgin before but I guess they must be pretty honest, anyhow once again thanks 🙂
And yes you got the country right !
