Before 1997, gambling in Azerbaijan was legal, and gamblers could play in more than 10 casinos located in Baku, the country’s capital. Since 1997, however, most forms of gambling have been banned – allegedly more for personal reasons than moral ones.

The Azerbaijani president at the time was Heydar Aliyev. His son, Ilkham Aliyev was heavily involved in gambling, reportedly owing $6 million to a Turkish gambling magnate. As a reaction to the ensuing scandal, president Aliyev decreed that gambling is contrary to the Azerbaijani values, and casinos are centers of immorality, ordering all casinos and gambling spots closed.

However, unlike most Muslim countries, not all forms of gambling are illegal in Azerbaijan.

A large majority of the Azeri population follows the Islam faith, which expressly forbids all forms of gambling under Sharia law.

 

The reasons for the prohibition are twofold:

 

According to the Islamic teaching, one ought to earn a living by honest, serious work, and relying on luck to gain money is contrary to this principle.

 

The reason for this prohibition lies in the addictive quality of gambling, which causes the gambler to neglect his responsibilities to society and the Creator. Interestingly, gambling is mentioned in conjunction with drinking, emphasizing the similarities between gambling addiction and alcoholism.*

Despite the prohibition of gambling by the Qu’ran, Azeri people are not as opposed to gambling as the residents of several other countries with a Muslim majority.

Casino gambling in Azerbaijan

 

Online casino gambling in Azerbaijan: illegal

 

Casino gambling thrived before the 1998 ban on gambling, but has been illegal ever since. The only alternative for Azerbaijani gamblers who wish to stick to casino gambling are online casinos.

There are several online casinos, most of which are available in Russian, that accept players from Azerbaijan.
Players may be fined, although the government tends not to prosecute individual players (no recorded case of individual player prosecuted, operators are prosecuted).

Some foreign casino gambling platforms are blocked by internet service providers at the behest of the Azerbaijani government.

The online casinos below accept players from the Bahamas.

Online Poker in Azerbaijan: illegal, players usually not prosecuted

 

Poker has been banned in Azerbaijan along with casinos and most other forms of gambling since 1998. Azeri people, on the other hand, are avid gamblers, which has led to a thriving underground gambling market. Still, currently there are no establishments in Azerbaijan to legally play Poker in.

Azerbaijan also has no online Poker sites of its own. While technically illegal for Azerbaijani people, foreign online Poker sites are still frequented, and most websites welcome players from Azerbaijan with open arms.

The following online poker sites accept players from Azerbaijan.

Sports betting in Azerbaijan

 

Online sports betting in Azerbaijan: legal

 

After 13 years, Azerbaijan finally loosened its ban on gambling in 2001 and enabled sports betting in the country. Criticised by some for having a negative impact on youth, the aim of the loosening of the law was to increase the budget of sports education programs with the tax on the sports betting company’s revenue.

The Topaz sports betting company was introduced, which currently operates over 500 brick and mortar betting shops in the country. Topaz is available on mobile as well as online, in the form of eTopaz.

The most popular sport in Azerbaijan both to watch and to wager on is football. Other popular sports include wrestling, boxing, basketball and volleyball. Topaz is the official sponsor of the Azerbaijan Premier League, the most popular sports event in Azerbaijan. The league has actually been renamed Topaz Premier League for three years as an acknowledgement of the sports betting company’s support.*

The online sportsbooks below accept registrations from Azerbaijan.

Lottery in Azerbaijan

 

Online lottery in Azerbaijan: legal, state monopoly

 

Lottery games have been legal since 1992, legalised after the fall of the Soviet Union of which Azerbaijan was a part. Lottery was the only form of gambling not banned after the 1998 gambling scandal. In 2001, in an effort to regulate the lottery market in Afghanistan, the Azerlottery was officially founded by the Ministry of Economic Development of the Azerbaijani Republic.

Azerbaijani lottery has operated as a monopoly ever since. The games offered include Lotto 5/36, 6/40 and Bingo. The lottery draws are televised, and viewed by around 20% of the respondents of a study conducted on the gambling habits in Azerbaijan*

Azerlottery is also offering lottery games online. As no other online lottery licenses have been given out since 2001, Azerlottery’s online version is the only legal form of online lottery available within Azerbaijan. Still, Azeri players can access several Russian-speaking foreign online lottery sites.

The following websites allow people from Azerbaijan to purchase lottery tickets online:

Bitcoin gambling in Azerbaijan

 

Bitcoin gambling in Azerbaijan: illegal/unregulated

 

Interest in Bitcoin has been steadily growing in Azerbaijan the past few years. In 2014 the Central Bank of Azerbaijan issued a statement saying there are no regulations in place addressing the mechanism of the cryptocurrency. However, he stated, “In accordance with the Azerbaijan Constitution, it’s prohibited to use other means of payment in the country except the national currency: Azerbaijani manat.”*

To summarize, Bitcoin gambling and Bitcoin usage are both illegal within Azerbaijan at the moment, although the draft of a new law has been prepared that is supposed to bring a more favorable situation for Bitcoin.

However, depending on your interpretation of the law above (“in the country”) it  says nothing about placing bets on foreign online Bitcoin casinos.

The bitcoin casinos below accept players from Azerbaijan.

Thank you for visiting:
This is a selfie of the author and owner of Simon's Casino Gambling Blog, me, Simon András Péter, a.k.a. by the internet pseudonym SimonTheSorcerer, owner of Simon's Online Marketing Kft. This is the homepage of my online casino gambling blog, you can see what's on the website, the links to all the different sections of the website.
That's me, Simon, thank you for visiting.
Don't worry, this is not an ad! ;) Just wanted to make sure to tell you that I'm glad you visited this gambling blog. I'm Simon, the only author and the man behind this blog (if you are interested, my unusual life story can be found on the homepage, under the "About me" dropdown section).
I'm an independent gambling blogger since 2012. In this sector dominated by huge media companies, casino operators and online marketing networks, who can easily spend $ millions on their online gambling blogs, it's not easy for an independent nobody like me to survive. It took me about 6 years, working my ass off, to even have a chance to be noticed by visitors like you. I'm lucky enough that for a few years now, I make enough money to be able to do this full time (before that, I had part-time jobs, ghost writing gigs, online marketing this and that).
Now I can finally do this full time, thanks to visitors like you! And it means a lot! If you are interested, please bookmark this site (no social media profiles, I no longer have any, but please feel free to share anything on any social media networks, if you still use them). I don't have any money to advertise, and if you have a personal blog, any social media profile, please mention my gambling blog and link back to it. This the only way for a small website like this to grow. Thank you!

Logo of Kiva.org. You can read about my non-profit activity right next to the picture.
Charity: As a way to help others, to give back, I sometimes donate to Kiva. If you click on the ads on the website, I make some money. And in a good month, if I make more than my expenses, I donate to people and projects on Kiva.
Kiva helps young entrepreneurs in developing countries, which is an issue close to my heart for obvious reasons. If you have the means, please sign up with the revolutionary non-profit company Kiva.org and help people lift themselves out of poverty, through hard-work, and an initial investment (non-profit loan). These non-profit loans encourage entrepreneurship and hard work instead of creating a dependent class that is afraid to get a job, or start a business (because if they did, they would no longer get support and free money, disincentivezing hard work and entrepreneurship). This is the right way to fight poverty in developing countries (or anywhere else really), and if this is something you are interested in, and if you would like to know more, or to help out, please check out Kiva.org here. Thank you!
