Live casinos accepting US players
The US online gambling landscape is changing rapidly with a number of states choosing to legalize and regulate online casino gambling. New Jersey is leading the charge in this regard and residents there can now play live games from leading platforms, at locally licensed and regulated online casinos.
Players resident in New Jersey can play live dealers at these casinos:

A note on live (online) casino options for American (US resident) players
Since the passing of UIGEA, US players have had their work cut out for them finding online gambling sites accepting their custom. Many of the larger online gambling operators, those with a significant terrestrial presence or stock exchange listing and/or EU region license pulled out of the of the US market until such time as the legal position is clearer, or a licensing regime is introduced.
The list of casinos offering live dealer games is dominated by these larger operators – probably due to the large investment and higher marginal cost of offering this service to customers. 888, bet365, Unibet, William Hill, Bwin, Betfair, Genting, Betsson etc are all heavyweights in the gambling/online gambling world but all currently adopt a no-US-wide player policy.
As a consequence, finding a good live dealer casino accepting US customers is not easy, simply because there are not many of them. Although this is starting to change.
In the wake of the DOJ’s softened online gambling stance, and subsequent moves by certain states (lead by New Jersey), the big operators and live game providers are now slowly moving back into the US market.
2018 has been somewhat of a landmark year in this regard with Authentic Gaming and Foxwoods Casino teaming up to offer the first US based live dealer product to players outside the US (and within New Jersey).
Also in 2018 Evolution Gaming opened their first US based dealer studio, located in Atlantic City. Tables from this studio can now be played online by New Jersey residents at the likes of Unibet and 888 online casinos, with other big brands sure to follow.
In time, as regulations permit, these tables may be made available to players across more US states. That is certainly the intent of some lawmakers in New Jersey looking to expand the reach of their online casinos.
