The Key Issues of Qatari Betting

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” 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.  

I have researched dozens of 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, rather than graded poorly.  I also give you a side-by-side look at some current odds.  You’ll find my list in alphabetical order, with numbers after letter.  Know that I have excluded far more sites than I have included in my research for the purposes of the Qatar market.  

BetVictor is known widely in the UK for having the most competitive football odds. If football is going to be the sport on which you will focus more than any other, BetVictor must be at the top of your list.  Read the BetVictor Qatar review.

bet365 is one of the biggest names in the sportsbook business.  With the most comprehensive sports betting coverage and the most intuitive online and mobile platforms, bet365 is quick and easy to use with innovative features that set them apart from most sportsbooks and the most currencies.  Read the bet365 Qatar review.

Current Football Odds

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.  

As no 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 sportsbook review lists the accepted currencies for each site.

Bonuses & Mobile Betting in Qatar

First, I’ll deal with the issue of bonuses or free bets.  When you visit the websites for these sportsbooks, you will likely see promotions for free bets or deposit bonuses.  Be aware, before you go to visit that for the most part, these bonuses have been restricted by the respective betting sites to registrants in a limited group of countries, and sometimes no more than one or two countries.  As such, expect that as a Qatari citizen you will be ineligible for these promotions.  

In terms of mobile betting, each of these services offers a mobile-optimized website that you will be able to access from within Qatar.  While many of these providers do provide mobile apps, once again these are only made available to residents of a limited group of countries.  Despite this, understand that the experiences using the mobile sites are excellent, fast and include essentially full coverage of betting markets in comparison to the online experience from your Mac or PC.  Read more about this on the Qatar mobile sports betting page.
