Online Casino in the UAE – What’s the Status?

Online Casino UAE has been a frequently discussed topic recently. With online gambling growing bigger and bigger every day, it’s not always easy to keep track of which countries are changing their laws and how that’s affecting the opportunities for gambling in the country.

In the case of UAE, gambling has been strictly forbidden, both online and live. However, this may change soon. A couple of weeks ago, the new federal body – the General Commercial Gaming Regulatory Authority – was positive about overseeing the opportunities for commercial gaming and legal gambling to be a thing in the UAE.

There might even be a live casino in UAE on the horizon. Last year, the Wynn group flagged their interest in building a luxury resort in UAE, which they hoped would involve gambling in the foreseeable future. Today, the UAE casino scene is non-existent, but this will surely be an interesting topic to follow.

Great times are ahead, people! We’re so happy to have you on the journey with us, and everything we do is with the intention of keeping you up to date with the latest trends in the gambling sphere. Have a great week!
