Online casinos in Oman

Legal status of digital casinos in Oman: illegal, players could potentially be prosecuted

 

Online casinos are officially illegal in Oman.

It’s not surprising, considering that Oman is an absolute monarchy, where around 85% of the population follows Islam1.

The Penal Code of Oman2 does not specifically mention any form of online gambling. However, the general gambling ban is understood to apply to internet casinos as well.

Omani citizens, who operate online casinos within Oman are committing a crime and the punishment is up to 3years  imprisonment and/or a fine of 1000 Rial Omani (€2480), according to article 289 of the Penal Code:

“Whoever arranges, prepares, opens, or manages a place for gambling, or organises any games of chance, shall be punished by imprisonment for a period no less than (3) three months and not exceeding (3) three years, and a fine no less than (100) one hundred Rial Omani (€248) and not exceeding (1,000) one thousand Rial Omani (€2480), or one of those two punishments.”

However, players, who play in foreign online casinos are not targeted by the government, there is no enforcement when it comes to ordinary players.

/Comment: This is very common in the world, in 90%+ of the countries of the world ordinary players can play freely online. This is the case in most Muslim majority countries as well, some (e.g.: Afghanistan) even have such lax enforcement when it comes to internet gambling that the country even had professional poker players, who openly admitted to playing poker online from the country and competed in international tournaments. Namely Sherkhan Farnood, who was the Chairman of Kabul Bank until 20103./ 

Naturally there are no online casinos based or licensed in Oman, and this is not likely to change any time soon. However, some international digital casino platforms accept players from Oman, you can see them below.

UPDATE 2022: Some online gambling websites are reportedly blocked in Oman, although only a tiny fraction are according to online reports4, players are still not prosecuted for playing online.

UPDATE 2022: I added this section because you might be wondering:

How is it legal for online casinos to accept players from Oman? Isn’t it illegal?

It’s only illegal for Omani citizens to play online. These foreign online gambling websites, which accept players from Oman are registered and licensed in foreign countries, and the Omani laws only apply within the borders of the country (within the so called jurisdiction, they do not apply to these foreign gambling websites).

According to the local gambling laws of the countries in which these offshore gambling companies operate it’s perfectly legal to accept players from Oman.

But it’s not legal for Omani citizens to place bets on these platforms.

International law can be complicated, and enforcement is even more tricky, I hope this clears this up.

However, I officially do not recommend playing online from Oman, it’s illegal, and you should always act according to the laws of your country, even if it’s not enforced, play at your own risk.

By scrolling below you can find a list of online casinos, which accept Omani players.

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Oman?

Yes, tourists, expats (or illegal migrants) can play online freely while enjoying their stay in the country.

 

Online casino licensing and regulatory body of Oman: N/A, online casino licenses are not issued in Oman.

Land-based casinos in Oman

Legal status of casinos in Oman: illegal, players are prosecuted

 

Casinos are illegal in Oman according to the Penal Code1 and according to the teachings of Quran2.

/Comment: Gambling (maisir) is forbidden (haram) according to the teachings of Islam./ 

As a result there are no Omani casinos, and there never were any in the country (even prior to the official founding of the Sultanate of Oman in 1970 gambling was illegal in the territory).

Operating illegal gambling dens or visiting illegally operating casinos is a criminal act, punishable by up to 3 years in jail and/or a fine of 1000 Rial Omani (€2480). And unlike in the case of online casinos (details can be found above, in the Oman online casinos section) this is enforced indiscriminately and even the players are prosecuted.

Oman could gain a lot by legalizing casinos. The country is already a regionally important, rapidly growing tourist destination (+20% growth per year, on average, prior to the coronavirus pandemic), and it receives 3.5 million visitors per year, which is a good number for a country of only 4.8 million.

UPDATE COVID-19: However, these are pre-coronavirus numbers, it has fallen drastically to around 870 K due to the global pandemic3.

Casino hotels and subsequent investment into the country’s tourism and hospitality sector could further enhance the already impressive growth of the Oman tourism sector.

/Fun fact: Interestingly, several hundred years ago, ancient Persia (of which Oman was a part of) was among the first areas where gambling gained significant popularity (although not much written or archaeological evidence remains).

The ancient Persian games of chance included four sided dice created out of bones (that’s the only one we know of, only the bone dice survived the ages, probably there were other gambling instruments as well)./

Interestingly, Omani citizens are officially forbidden from playing in casino even if they are visiting other countries. However, such laws are impossible to enforce, and they are regularly violated.

The best and most outrageous example of this is the case of Nora Al-Daher, wife of Omani Foreign Minister Sayyid Badr bin Hamad. She lost £2 million gambling at the Ritz casino in Great Britain4.

You can find all the currently operating brick and mortar casinos in the list below.

 

Can locals visit the casinos in Oman?

N/A, there are no casinos in Oman.

Oman bitcoin casinos

Legal status: illegal

 

Cryptocurrency wagering is not regulated at all in Oman, because cryptocurrencies (e.g.: bitcoin, litecoin, ethereum, ripple) themselves are entirely unregulated*.

However, the general ban on games of luck extend to bitcoin gambling as well, therefore it is illegal.

Despite the legal status, players who place bets with virtual coins on foreign gambling platforms are not punished by the authorities. Buying, selling and using virtual currencies for non-gambling purposes is perfectly fine.

/Comment: However, it’s unknown what’s the stance of the Omani government on bitcoin mining or making money from trading digital currencies. If you know please leave a comment./

Gamble responsibly,
SimonTheSorcerer

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!
