United Arab Emirates Casino & Gambling Overview

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.
