UAE Sports 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-patriots within the UAE have free access to online sportsbooks that accept wagers from people around the world, even though the government has the ability to block you.  It is up to you if you feel that you should act upon this freedom.  If you feel as if you’d like to proceed, you need to find the right betting site for your needs.  I’ve compiled a list of the best handful of companies that cater to the needs of UAE sports bettors whether you reside in Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah or Umm al-Quwain.  

Banking with your betting site from the UAE

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-friendly banking methods.  


As only one major sports betting site in the world offers Emirati Dirham betting accounts, you will need to make a choice in how important this aspect of our experience will be to you.   If you want to be with some of the top providers, your betting account must be in another currency.  In conjunction with this, you may also want a banking method that exists in the same currency to minimize currency exchange fees.  

High Limit Sports Betting in the United Arab Emirates

High Limit Betting

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.

How my UAE sports betting research formed this list

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-established companies with excellent reputations, have UAE-friendly banking methods, excellent mobile betting platforms, while focusing on the sports that Emiratis and ex-patriot UAE residents tend to enjoy the most.  Many also offer extremely high betting limits for bettors that have vast resources with which to play.

I don’t provide phoney star ratings or grades.  I assume my readers are smart enough to look past such juvenile tactics used by other review sites.  You’ll find my list essentially in no order of preference, with the key information stated concisely so you may move on to get started quickly. Each little summary gives you the key points or you may click to read a little more information in the site review.


About UAE sports betting bonuses & mobile betting

First, I’ll deal with the issue of bonuses.  Not all betting sites offer them.  Those that do offer bonuses do not always offer them to customers from all countries.  Sometimes no more than one or two countries are eligible for the offers.  As such, expect that as a UAE resident you may be ineligible for some promotions.  If you want to explore new customer offers from the UAE, look at bet365, 888sport, 10Bet, Spin Sports and Unibet - they have bonuses that tend not to be restrictied by one’s country.  Click to visit and you will be presented with their latest promotion, which will be subject to various terms and conditions.

In terms of mobile betting, each of these services offers a mobile-optimized website that you will be able to access from within UAE.  While many of these providers do provide mobile apps, once again these are only made available to residents of a limited group of countries.  Despite this, understand that the experiences using the mobile sites are excellent, fast and include essentially full coverage of betting markets in comparison to the online experience from your Mac or PC.  Read more about this on the UAE mobile sports betting page.
