UAE online sports betting: all you need to know

Gambling is certainly not an activity that has received government approval within the UAE as of yet.  Although the United Arab Emirates has shown its authority on this matter by arresting people that operate illegal gambling rooms, the government has not moved to block reputable sports betting websites.

The UAE, through its telecommunications regulatory authority has the ability and the right to block any illegal content.  While they do block a lot of content, sports betting sites have not generally been blocked.  This is likely due to several key reasons.  The UAE and some of its prominent individuals have invested heavily into sport.  Allowing people to bet on sports is a good way to ensure that people may stay engaged with the teams and sports in which they have invested.  

Also, the UAE is home to many ex-patriots from countries like the UK and Germany where sports betting is legal.  In an effort to ensure that these people can feel at home, it seems as though UAE authorities are happy to allow individuals access to what is essentially a harmless vice in betting on sports as long as people do it from the privacy of their own homes in a way that is not disrespectful of Islamic culture in a public manner.  Online sports betting allows people a private and more respectful way to bet on sports, as opposed to a public gambling room.

When it comes to selecting the right sports betting site from the UAE, it really comes down to preference.  If you can bet in English, you will have more choice and a better experience.  If you prefer to bet in Arabic, both Spin Sports and 1XBET offer Arabic site versions.  All sites offer English.  Pinnacle and MarathonBet tend to offer the highest odds, as they work with very low profit margins.  If you prefer to take advantage of bonus offers and promotions, all the other listed betting sites will present you with bonus offers when you click or tap to visit, even of you do not see a banner.  (Betway also has a special UAE bonus offer for new customers) .  If you think you might bet from your mobile as you move around the UAE and abroad and want the best mobile betting, each of these sites has invested to develop fast and intuitive mobile betting sites.  


Banking methods for online sports betting from the UAE

Each betting site that serves the UAE supports different methods for payment.  Credit cards are available at all these sites.  Given the progressive nature toward online sports betting when done in private, you likely need not worry about using your local payment method like bank transfers or credit cards with these betting sites.  However, if you prefer to have an intermediate payment solution that provides you with more anonymity, these methods listed below will certainly provide that.  Ideally you will use the same currency for both the payment solution and your betting site account.  This will minimize currency exchange fees for you.

EcoPayz is an e-wallet that allows you to link your local credit card or bank account to make payments.   MuchBetter is an e-wallet mobile app that you may download from the app store and then fund via your UAE cards or bank account.  Pre-paid solution, paysafecard, is available in the UAE at retail locations across the country.  With paysafecard, you simply find a retailer at paysafecard UAE, go to the location and buy one or more cards.  At the betting site cashier page, enter the code on the back of the cards.  Bitcoin is also available with MarathonBet, 1XBET and Pinnacle to fund US Dollar betting accounts.  (E-wallets PayPal, Skrill and Neteller are NOT available for use with betting sites from the UAE).


Emirati dirham (AED) sports betting accounts

When it comes to a much wider range of available currencies, MarathonBet and 1XBET offer many  national currencies including UAE dirhams (AED).  This means that if you wish, you can avoid the hidden cost of exchanging your currency.  Your credit card or bank transfer will be able to transact directly in dirhams with either company.  However, superior services are available if you are satisfied to play in another currency.  

Most betting sites offer somewhere between four to fifteen different currencies to be used for a betting account.  For your purposes from the Emirates, banking will be easiest if you select US Dollars, Euros or British Pounds.  If interested, you may see the current exchange rates for the UAE Dirham versus the top sports betting currencies as used from the Emirates with AED to USD and AED to EUR.
