In 2013 they launched BetAmerica Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) and became the only multi-vertical online gaming site in the U.S.. DFS contests allow you to compete in skill-based competitions as defined in the 2006 Federal UIGEA legislation, enabling you to win money playing fantasy sports and fantasy events. The BetAmerica DFS experience is designed to be easy to understand, easy to play, and easy to win. BetAmerica Sports DFS fulfills their original goal of providing a true alternative to playing offshore.

There are four major forms of betting available to all customers of BetAmerica. These include horse racing, greyhounds, fantasy sports and “fantasy games” which allow you to place wagers on a variety of pop culture events such as the Grammys, Oscars and other things of that nature.
Horse racing is where BetAmerica really shines in my opinion. They cover more than 200 tracks from around the world with all the same wagers that you could place in person at the track. In fact, all bets you place are pooled with the wagers placed by the people actually at the track and you get paid full track odds on all winning wagers.
Thoroughbreds, harness racing and quarter horses are all covered. You can bet on all the local track events that don’t make the news as well as major events such as the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, Belmont Stakes and Breeders Cup among others.
BetAmerica’s coverage of greyhound racing is equally thorough. You can bet on every race on nearly 20 tracks across the United States. These include all the major races as well at least a hundred smaller races every day.
And also like horse racing, your bets on dogs are pooled with the wagers placed by those in attendance at each race. You can watch the race in real time and place bets just like anyone else at the track. The types of bets you can place include win/place/show as well as the exotics, keys and wheel bets. It’s a thorough greyhound racing experience every time.
Fantasy sports were added to BetAmerica in 2013 and have proven to be a popular addition to the lineup. Fantasy sports betting resembles traditional sports betting except it’s done with a fantasy draft just like you would play with your friends. Also, each contest only lasts a day instead of a whole season.
This form of betting is also exempt from anti-gambling laws passed in the United States so it’s completely legal. In fantasy betting, you either face off against a single opponent or join a tournament style matchup. Each person gets a play-money draft salary to pick the best players for their team. As your picks play in the real world, you earn points in your fantasy draft world. Whoever ends up with the most points at the end of the day wins the pot.
Fantasy games are set up in a similar manner as fantasy sports but they cover events other than athletics. For example, they have a game running right now in which you and other players pick celebrities as a part of your fantasy draft and win points based on how active your celebrities are on Twitter.
Other options are coming soon as well. Eventually, you’ll be able to bet on events such as the Grammy and Oscars and current events. This aspect of BetAmerica is still a work in progress but it looks very promising so far.
