Though gambling is not permitted or legal in Qatar, the residents of the country partake in and enjoy sports betting. For those interested or curious, sports betting is a lot different in Qatar than in other countries and includes sports such as cricket and camel racing.
The betting and gambling landscape is not mainstream, and even sports betting is illegal. The availability of gambling platforms and opportunities are often reserved for those who are in gangs or less than legal organizations who facilitate on and offline games, betting opportunities and other gambling platforms. Residents should be careful about their online activity.
