Online daily fantasy sports in Azerbaijan
Azerbaijan has a huge number of Muslim population, which makes gambling an ever-contradictory topic within the country. That is because under Sharia laws, one cannot gain money based on luck: they must earn it by pure, honest and hard work.
However, Azerbaijani gambling laws are not that strict when it comes to gambling and online gambling. Online sports betting and gambling has been made legal for years and it is not expected to be regulated any more strictly as there are many online gambling enthusiasts in Azerbaijan.
Similar exposure can be expected of the Azerbaijani daily fantasy sports market as well: as football is an incredibly popular sports in the former USSR country, once the top daily fantasy football providers, such as Mondogoal, start appearing in the country, they could expect huge increase of income.
To play daily fantasy sports in Azerbaijan is still not defines crystal clearly, so it is still unknown whether under the gambling laws of Azerbaijan it will be treated the same way as online sports betting which is based purely on luck, or it will be regarded as gaming based on the players’ skills.
