About United Arab Emirates Gaming

The United Arab Emirates is a Western Asian monarchy consisting of seven emirates or states. It is situated on the Arabian Peninsula on the Persian Gulf and shares borders with Oman and Saudi Arabia. The UAE is composed of seven emirates: Umm al-Quwain, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, and Ras al-Khaimah.

Casino gambling is strictly forbidden as well as the advertising of any form of gaming and the penalties for breaking the law can be severe. Cruise liners are not permitted to run any gambling activities when docked in UAE.

The UAE permits wagers in specific circumstances namely in respect of sports, racing, shooting and trials of strength and the prize money is awarded to the contestant through his/her own efforts and skill. It is illegal for the prize to be awarded to a third party (someone who is not a participant in the race/contest, etc.).

Despite having 5 racetracks and running the richest race in the world ‘Dubai World Cup’ punters are not allowed to cast any wagers while in UAE but can do so outside UAE borders via simulcast and online wagering.

United Arab Emirates is a country in Middle East with no legal gambling.

I don't believe any of these games are legal in the UAE (please correct me if I'm wrong)... about the best job you're going to get that has to do with gaming in the UAE is going to deal with horse racing.

Hi, thank you for stopping in! We can't give legal advice, but as far as we know only horse and camel race-betting is allowed - but would caution you to ask counsel. The penalties for illegal gambling can be harsh, According to law No 414 of the UAE Penal Code - "Each person who gambles is punished by imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years or a fine not exceeding Dh20,000. The punishment shall be imprisonment or a fine if the crime occurred in a public place or a place open to the public or in a store or house prepared for gambling." Good luck!
