Gambling Laws in Saudi Arabia

There is no legal gambling in Saudi Arabia. Article 1 of the Basic Law of Saudi Arabia states that the kingdom’s “religion shall be Islam and its constitution shall be the Book of God and the Sunnah (Traditions) of His Messenger, may God’s blessings and peace be upon him (PBUH).” Therefore, identifying the Qur’an and the Sunnah traditions as the main sources of legislation, gambling in Saudi Arabia is illegal. 

And although it is not explicitly prohibited, the Basic Law makes online gambling in Saudi Arabia also illegal. In fact, this is made clear in Article 6 of the Anti-Cyber Crime Law that prohibits the “preparation, publication and promotion of pornographic or gambling sites which violates the public morals.”
