United Arab Emirates
The United Arab Emirates is a small country in the middle east, home to Abu Dhabi and Dubai. They border Oman to the east, Saudi Arabia to the south and west, and the Persian Gulf to the north.
In some countries, there are gray areas when it comes to their regulations on what types of online gambling are legal and illegal. In the United Arab Emirates, there is no such gray area: They have simply banned every form of gambling on the Internet. This is a part of a larger ban on lots of different types of computer-based content, and it's something that they take extremely seriously.
Understand this: If you get caught gambling in the United Arab Emirates, you could be sentenced to two years in prison. That's not really worth it for playing penny slots or picking up a few hands of blackjack, so we suggest that players completely avoid gambling online in this country.
Sometimes there will be a chance for a country that has a current ban on some type of Internet gambling to regulate the industry in the future. This usually comes in situations where players are getting in on the action with foreign operators, and in those situations, it makes sense for the country in question to regulate the industry and get a piece of the money being sent out of the country in the form of tax revenues.
However, because the United Arab Emirates bans all forms of online gambling, and because they actively block and punish people who seek out foreign operators, this is unlikely to happen here anytime soon.
The best way you can protect yourself in the United Arab Emirates is to not gamble online. They have laws against even viewing gambling websites, and they also have laws against having tools for accessing blocked content, so you could get hit with convictions for multiple crimes for trying to get around their attempts to block players from playing. There's unlikely to be any regulation of the industry at any point in the next few decades here, so a player's best bet is just to not play.
