You can’t use PayPal for activities that

“involve gambling, gaming and/or any other activity with an entry fee and a prize, including, but not limited to casino games, sports betting, horse or greyhound racing, lottery tickets, other ventures that facilitate gambling, games of skill (whether or not it is legally defined as a lottery) and sweepstakes unless the operator has obtained prior approval from PayPal and the operator and customers are located exclusively in jurisdictions where such activities are permitted by law.”

All the cash gaming sites I’ve been to (Gameduell, Skilladdiction, Worldwinner, King) allow users to use PayPal to deposit funds, so they must meet the requirements. That could mean it’s legal everywhere, or just some places, including where those sites are headquartered. Does anyone know?
