Along with the mobile casino revolution, online gamblers from UAE have also entered the era of online casino gambling through mobile phones. Most of the casinos accepting players from Emirates lands either have mobile responsive casino websites or particular applications that players need to download and install in their phones for playing. Hence, the opportunity of wagering through mobile phones is quite convenient for the players since mobile phones with internet connectivity have become an obvious thing to have.
Online Gambling in the UAE
The Quran is what guides most of the laws and regulation in the UAE, and gambling is no exclusion. The act of gambling or online gambling is not prohibited or legal in the country, though there are sites that residents can still access and use (they are not formally blocked).
Gambling is considered indecent content and explicitly banned in the country, this includes for tourists and those visiting the country. On and offline betting on races is one way that people have gotten around these strict laws and dabbled in/enjoyed the act of gambling. This includes everything from horse and camel to car races.
