I am a passionate amateur journalist and I am writing an article for my blog about the differences in the laws in different countries regarding sports betting.
I have question to Canadian bettors as I know that law in your country has changed.
Let say you are from Ontario and you would like to start betting. Do you need to be in Ontario state or you can place bet from other country?
I am asking because there is a law in USA that forces bookmaking companies to use software that checks your location. I have asked about it 3 companies in Canada but until now no reply so I thought I would ask bettors.

I think that similar law as in the USA does not apply and you can make bets from anywhere in the world but goverment thinks about it and it might change in near future.
