Whlie I wouldn’t want to get into the laws of the land, there is no problem with sending bet tickets via US mail, as there is anecdotal evidence of people sending tickets to Vegas sportsbooks and not having a problem, receiving a check in return.
So, while we wouldn’t say for 100% that is was fine to do this, bet tickets being sent across the country via US mail TO Vegas is not a problem, so we can’t see why sending one elsewhere in the country is a problem, as long as the bet is placed in a legal manner. I mean, for the sake of argument, your daughter’s boyfriend wasn’t stopped by customs or any other authorities for having a betting ticket on him from another state, was he?
Of course, a simpler way around this would be to use an online sportsbook that accepts US customers and there are a few out there, most notably 5Dimes and Bodog.
So, there are a few ways around this and sending a betting ticket via US mail shouldn’t be a problem. Just remember that things can go missing in the mail, so it might be wise to send it recorded delivery, to avoid any other problems.
