Qatar Sports Betting Issues

Islamic Law states that gambling is illegal within Qatar.  However, the fact of the matter is that Qatar is a progressive Islamic State that has altered its own laws to make allowances for foreigners and ex-patriots to feel comfortable within various environments while trying to respect Qatari cultures and traditions.  For example, the government softened their position on alcohol to allow consumption at hotels and restaurants and to allow permits allowing the purchase of alcohol.  With regard to gambling, Qatar penal codes discuss punishments for gambling in public or at illegal casinos, as opposed to online betting or gambling online - privately.

Furthermore, most sports betting sites are essentially fully accessible.  This, despite the fact that the Qatar government currently blocks several types of illegal Internet content that it finds to be most distasteful through the two main Internet service providers Vodafone and Ooredoo.  While the Qatar government does not “approve” of gambling, by not blocking these sites, it appears they are willing to “look the other way” when people in Qatar wish to bet on sports in private.  Perhaps this is because those at the highest levels in Qatar are highly invested in sport.

I have researched dozens of online sportsbook brands for markets around the globe.  Below, I display the the best sports betting sites that allow Qatar-based bettors.  I also look into company reputation, Qatari Riyal betting, years in business, available banking methods, mobile platform quality, the ability to accept wagers with extremely high limits and sites that focus on the sports that Qataris generally love the most.  Those that do not measure up are excluded from the list, rather than given a poor grade, but left for you to visit at your risk.  I also explain how you might want to go about getting the best odds.  You’ll find my list in no particular order or rank.  Know that I have excluded far more sites than I have included in my research for the purposes of the Qatar sports betting market.  

The best online sports betting sites for players in Qatar

Most sportsbooks cater to the average bettor.  However, with a relatively small population and a very high average income.  It makes sense to examine the betting sites that can accommodate bettors that wish to bet larger sums of money.  


Some services are more able to accept high wagers than others.  I examine the limits at each of the sportsbooks I list so you can bet as much as you would like to, on the sports that interest you the most.

High Limit Betting

Key to your sportsbook experience is the manner in which you’ll be able to deposit and withdraw funds from your betting account via your chosen banking methods. This page includes tips to help you get started, plus information you should know before your begin to bet online and before you look to make your first withdrawal.  


As no major reputable online sportsbook in the world offers Qatari Riyal betting accounts, you will need to set your betting account to another currency.  In conjunction with this, you may also want a banking method that exists in the same currency to minimize currency exchange fees.  Each betting site review lists the accepted currencies for each site.

Qatar Sports Betting Bonuses

As part of our research in finding the bookmaker companies that best-serve Qatar, we also evaluated whether or not the given providers offered a new customer bonus that was available in Qatar.  Many betting sites only offer their new customer incentives to a limited group of countries - we wanted to exclude these providers as they do not prioritize the customers that are the focus of this site.

Happily, we can report that six of our nine recommended betting sites offer sports betting bonuses that are available to new customers in Qatar.  They are 10Bet, Betway, 888sport, bet365, BetVictor, Spin Sports and Unibet.  When you visit any of these sites through clicking a banner or the logos and buttons in our list, you will be greeted by the applicable bonuses for the Qatar national market, including any applicable terms and conditions.

Know that while bonuses are a nice incentive, the odds matter too, and companies that tend to offer consistently higher odds tend not to offer bonuses.  MarathonBet and Pinnacle fall into this category.  In the end, the choice is yours to make, but you would do well to make a decision after reading all the site summaries at left.
