Is gambling legal in Oman?

As an Islamic nation, it should be no surprise that gambling is technically an illegal activity in Oman.  Article 232, Chapter Seven of the Omani Penal Code defines gambling as a way in which luck prevails over skill or prudence.  Given this, there have been many examples of the police arresting individuals found in gambling rooms.  In 2018, 16 Asian ex-patriots were arrested for gambling in the Shaleem area of Hallaniyat in Dhofar governorate.  In 2017, 13 expats were arrested for gambling in Salalah.  The penalty once caught should be no less than a fine of 500 OMR and at least six months in prison, no matter if you are in Muscat, Seeb or any other city or town within the country.  As gambling in-person, in public places is clearly a high-risk activity, online betting has become a popular alternative option.


Is online sports betting legal in Oman?

Regulators within Oman do censor a lot of online content that is seen to be inappropriate for the residents of Oman.  As such, virtual private networks (VPNs) are in high demand.  Although much content is prohibited, many sports betting sites are still free to access from within Oman.  However, little is done to prosecute or prevent individuals from privately accessing sports betting sites that operate outside of Oman such as those services listed above.  As such, you can access these online sportsbooks and play with little risk.


Selecting the right sports betting site for your needs from Oman

If you prefer a website in Arabic, Spin Sports and 1XBET provide this for you, but as you can see, these are listed as #8 and #9 respectively.  If you are comfortable playing in English, your choices for a superior sports betting experience will expand considerably with bookmakers listed #1 through #7 .  If you would like to play directly in Omani Rial, we discuss this topic below.  All of these sites offer excellent football coverage in terms of available betting markets and live betting.  If you are concerned about whether or not any of these sites are currently being blocked, all of the  green buttons above open new tabs within your browser, so you can click each one and then see which are accessible for you.


Banking methods for online sports betting from Oman

Each betting site supports a different mix of payment methods.  You may find it more helpful to first choose your betting site, then select your payment method afterwards if you do not already have access to one.  Ideally, you should select the same currency for both the payment solution and your betting site account.  This will minimize currency conversion fees.  

Bank transfers and credit cards are available from Oman at all listed betting sites.  However, for the sake of privacy,  EcoPayz, Neteller and Skrill are e-wallets that work from Oman with currencies like the Euro or US Dollar and can act as an intermediate payment method for secure and private bookmaker payments and withdrawals.  MuchBetter is an e-wallet mobile app that works in a similar fashion, that you may download from your app store.  Pinnacle, MarathonBet and 1XBET also support Bitcoin payments toward USD and EUR accounts.

Omani Rial (OMR) sports betting accounts

Most betting sites offer a relatively small collection of different currencies to be used for your betting account and the Omani Rial is generally not available.  To enjoy the widest selection of compatible banking methods, it is best that you set your betting account to US Dollars or Euros.  To see the latest currency exchange rates, we have provided helpful links for you here: OMR to USD and OMR to EUR.

When it comes to a much wider range of available account currencies, MarathonBet and 1XBET offer nearly every available national currency including Omani Rial.  This means that if you wish, you can avoid the hidden cost of exchanging your currency.  Via Skrill, you will be able to to transact directly in Rial with both bookmakers.  Note that this is the main reason that 1XBET is in our list of top betting sites for Oman.  However, there are eight companies that are ranked higher that offer superior experiences in other ways, including MarathonBet.  The choice is yours.  Read the notable points to compare or read the reviews for a more in depth look

Do these Oman betting sites offer access to other types of online gambling ?

Indeed, most of these companies do provide access to other games through the same account, yes.  However, there is a spectrum of gaming availability from those companies that are purely online bookies, to those that also offer casino games, to those that offer the full array of gaming platforms.  Here is how that spectrum looks: 888sport is purely a betting site - no kinds of other gambling options are available through an 888sport account.  With all of the other companies listed above, online and live casino games and their variations are available.  This includes games such as blackjack, baccarat, roulette and slots along with all kinds of different versions of these games.  Online poker rooms and online bingo are tougher to offer in a substantial way as they require a large customer base - after all, you are playing online with real people.  As such, only bet365 and Unibet of those listed above offer poker and bingo to you in Oman in addition to casino and sports betting.  If you have an interest in learning more, you can read about Oman online casinos for a detailed analysis on the issue.
