Key Issues of UAE Betting
Welcome gentlemen. You’re likely already aware of the issues that surround sports betting within the United Arab Emirates. It is technically illegal to gamble on sports in the UAE. It is important to note that many types of content are technically illegal for people in the UAE to access via the Internet. The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority within UAE has the ability to block this content. However, with regard to Internet content that is relevant to gambling, like sports betting, zero content is being blocked. Prior to the recent TRA website redesign, there was a page that showed than none of these sites were being blocked, despite their right to do so.
In other words, Emiratis and ex-
First, I’ll deal with the issue of bonuses or free bets. When you visit the websites for these sportsbooks, you will likely see promotions for free bets or deposit bonuses. Be aware, before you go to visit that for the most part, these bonuses have been restricted by the respective betting sites to registrants in a limited group of countries, and sometimes no more than one or two countries. As such, expect that as an Emirati citizen or resident you may be ineligible for these promotions.
In terms of mobile betting, each of these services offers a mobile-

Key to your sportsbook experience is the manner in which you’ll be able to deposit
and withdraw funds from your betting account via your chosen UAE-
As no sportsbook in the world offers Emirati Dirham betting accounts, you will need to set your betting account to another currency. In conjunction with this, you may also want a banking method that exists in the same currency to minimize currency exchange fees. Each separate sportsbook review lists the accepted currencies for each site.
Most sportsbooks cater to the average bettor. However, with a relatively small population and a very high average income. It makes sense to examine the betting sites that can accommodate bettors that wish to bet larger sums of money.
Some services are more able to accept high wagers than others. I examine the limits at each of the sportsbooks I list so you can bet as much as you would like to, on the sports that interest you the most.
I’ve identified the best betting sites for almost every important market on earth from the perspective of the people in each respective market. Not every betting company is geared toward every market due to issues regarding registration acceptance, language, currency, banking, sports coverage and more. As such, I’ve reviewed dozens of online sportsbooks to identify the best ones for each market.
In my list above, I only include the betting sites that are right for the Emirates’ market, excluding the sites that fail to measure up. Most other review sites list every site that they review because they don’t care which site you actually choose. They would prefer you simply recognize a logo and click through to register, even if that site is a poor choice for you. I choose not to list brands that I feel fail to meet UAE player needs.
Each of my listed sites accept UAE bettors, are all well-
