Gambling in the UAE: what are the risks?
Source: There are many UAE friendly online casinos operating on the web.

Article 414 of the UAE Criminal Code provides for punishment for gambling in the form of imprisonment for up to two years!



However, there are not so many cases when people were actually imprisoned for gambling in the UAE. Violators are usually fined and foreign nationals deported.

Much more severe punishment will be given to those who are caught opening or running a place where you can gamble. These perpetrators will be sentenced to 10 years in prison.
