Iraq is a red-level online gambling jurisdiction where online gambling is implicitly illegal, though no one enforces the ban.

Iraq is a country in the Middle East. It borders the Persian Gulf to the south-east, Kuwait to the south-east, Saudi Arabia to the south, Jordan to the south-west, Syria to the west and north-west, Turkey to the north and Iran to the east.


Iraq has seen a ton of instability over the past 10-15 years, and this has shaken up a lot of aspects of how the country runs as a whole. As a result, their Islamic law-based ban on gambling, which presumably includes gambling on the Internet, is way far back on their list of priorities compared to everything else they're dealing with there, so no real attention is paid to enforcing the assumed ban.

As a result of this situation, a fair amount of people play online in Iraq. There have been no reported cases of charges being pressed against anyone for Internet gambling, and there have also been no publicized cases of arrests. Overall, the attitude towards the industry seems to be of the "don't ask, don't tell" variety.


Because online gambling is such a non-priority right now, there aren't really any reasonable chances of a licensing process being introduced as a part of new regulations in Iraq. No politicians are going to take up the cause because of the influence of Islamic law and because of the overwhelming trouble that the country is seeing in other areas. With that aside, they probably won't crack down on it in the near future either. The overall effect is that things are most likely to just stay as they are now, at least for the next decade.

Player Protections

Since online gambling is presumably illegal in Iraq, you can't expect any type of player protection from the government. Along these lines, players who do decide they want to play will need to make sure they stick to the most reputable sites that they can. This will minimize the overall risk as long as the site has a history of paying out quickly and with a variety of methods and for having the player's back in the case of disputes. With that having been said, we cannot recommend players undertake any illegal activities.
