Unfortunately for all gambling lovers, Dubai senior tourism official Issam Kazim stated that legalizing gambling in Dubai isn’t something the Emirate has in its foreseeing plans. This statement follows after months of speculations in the public that the United Arab Emirates would be considering opening up to gambling to compete against Saudi Arabia.
Even though Dubai is an Emirate where most casino-linked hotels are built, gambling is still illegal in the eye of the law. 
This means that resorts such as the luxury five-star beachfront hotel and resort located on Bluewaters Island in Dubai, owned by the Caesars Palace magnate, don’t give their casino services in Dubai. The same goes for the MGM resort, which, even though it’s still in construction, has made clear that will also only have to provide hospitality services. 
Meanwhile, the Wynn Resorts’ project in neighboring Ras Al Khaimah, one of the United Arab seven emirates, is preparing to open its doors to gambling. So, can players from Dubai enjoy gaming in this resort, or are there other alternatives?
One of the most famous hotel resorts stationed in Nevada has taken its first step into opening up a division in one of the seven UAE – Ras Al Khaimah. The predictions for this resort are that it will be even bigger and more luxurious than the one in Las Vegas. 
The idea for this endeavor is based on the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah is the perfect spot to create this resort. The CEO, Craig Billins, said, “Given that it’s a man-made island without any existing development, it’s an incredibly flexible location on which to plan.”
Announced in early 2022, the Wynn Resorts is expected to be developed by around 2026. It will have more than 1,000 rooms, a shopping mall, a spa, restaurants, lounges, and even a gaming room.
Up to this point, Wynn Resorts have provided casino services to all customers. However, considering the strict gambling laws in the region of UAE, there are still speculations about whether this resort will open its doors to gaming enthusiasts from Dubai. 
Billings noted that the region is a “tremendous non-gaming leisure and luxury market”, so presenting a casino that would be operating on its own can be a real challenge. In January 2022, the Emirate and Wynn both acquired a license to allow gaming, but there was no specification on whether this included gambling. 
Nonetheless, Billings noted that all of these issues would be addressed in 2023 and onwards. 
Dubai is a country that operates under Islamic rules, which is why gambling is illegal. Having in mind that in Islam, gambling is considered a sin, all countries of this region have placed strict regulations and punishments concerning this matter. 
However, there are still some exceptions. For example, in Dubai, horse racing is allowed; even the biggest horse race tournament – Dubai World Cup – takes place here. When it comes to gambling, brick-and-mortar casinos, as well as online operators that are stationed in Dubai, fall under these strict laws. 
But, when it comes to online gaming at offshore sites, the situation is different, as playing here may be possible. Setting the ethical norms aside, the legal framework doesn’t extend to this section, meaning that the laws can’t have the same restrictions on foreign-based operators that allow players from Dubai. You can visit Arabic Casinos and find the best Arabic casino sites where players from Dubai can enjoy the thrill of online gaming. 
Dubai senior tourism official Issam Kazim’s statement that Dubai won’t legalize gambling disappointed many gambling enthusiasts. However, not all hope is lost for those that want to enjoy the thrill of gaming. 
Although it is still unclear whether players from Dubai can spin the reels in the Wynn Resort that is set to open in 2026 in Ras Al Khaimah, there are some available alternatives in the form of online gaming. 
Plenty of online offshore casinos accept players from Dubai as their customers, giving them the same privileges as all other players. What is left to see is whether Dubai is willing to completely open its doors to gambling.
Some speculate that the Wynn Resort will push forward the whole UAE region to more leniency towards this matter, considering the tourism it attracts. This, in turn, will cause Dubai officials to change their minds on such a decision.
Online gambling is a popular activity among many internet users. With the advancement of technology, we are able to explore a new spin on traditional games. Blockchain casinos specialize in all the best gambling games while using blockchain technology to secure user privacy. As a result, many gamers find gambling with cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin to be a great option.
Choosing a secure blockchain casino to play with is essential to make sure that you are able to enjoy gaming. Just like traditional gambling, you still need to ensure that you are on a safe and trusted website. In this article, we will give you a detailed guide of the most secure Bitcoin casinos to play in 2023.
What are the advantages of a blockchain casino?
Yes, blockchain casinos are safe. Data theft and hacker attacks are a common threat to online gambling sites. However, blockchain technology helps to protect data privacy and is designed to be more resistant to hackers.
The risks associated with blockchain casinos are data miners and cyber theft. By using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) and gambling platforms that have a valid SSL certificate you are able to mitigate these risks.
You are most prone to the threats of bad actors when you are using unverified websites and clicking unknown links. Always verify a website before you use it. CasinosBlockchain is a reputable site for discovering the most secure blockchain casinos out there.
The internet can be overwhelming with information, making it hard to identify which blockchain casinos are secure and which are fraudulent–that is why we have created this guide for you.
Let’s take a look at trusted Bitcoin casinos.
BC.Game casino has built trust with users over the course of 5 years. Since 2017, the community-based crypto casino has grown to host over 8000 games–such as Dice, Saviour Sword and Blackjack. They are committed to fair gaming and offering players rewards of up to $220,000 in welcome bonuses. They are licensed by Curaçao, with a well-built website to give you the best playing experience.
The goal of BC.Game is to eliminate all unfair factors that players may face so that they are able to have fun. This blockchain casino also places emphasis on making transactions transparent, therefore, they cannot be manipulated.
Stake casino has an official Curaçao eGaming License, which is the standard amongst cryptocurrency gambling platforms. Although they do not offer welcome bonuses, they offer over 1000 slots and casino games including Dice, Keno and Limbo.
What stands out about Stake casino is that they have a blog and forum with discussions on all the latest news. Because of this, you can be sure that you will always find necessary updates regarding the platform which is important in the case of a security breach. They offer 2FA for account protection.
Cloudbet is different compared to other crypto gambling sites because it focuses on sports betting for games such as NFL, World Cup, NBA and NHL. For players who also enjoy casino games, their catalogue has a variety of games to play using Bitcoin. On Cloudbet, you are guaranteed name-brand games with quality graphics as opposed to knock-off games. They offer welcome bonuses of up to 5 Bitcoin.
As a pioneer in the blockchain casino space, Cloudbet is very experienced. Their long history means that they are safer. You can contact their support by live support and email. Their website mentions that they “limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties” which shows that they take security seriously.
Bitcasino is an online casino and sportsbook platform. Founded in 2014, it is the oldest blockchain casino on this list. The catalogue consists of slots and casino favourites such as Poker and Baccarat, and even exclusive games like their Bitcasino Billion game. Bitcasino offers a welcome bonus of up to $50,000.
With more experience in the industry, Bitcasino has been able to develop their security practices more than others. Their website has outstanding informational support. Their website has a detailed FAQ that answers questions about their security and data privacy practices. They have a good reputation in the market.
There is an option to withdraw in either cryptocurrency or fiat money. You may be required to complete a KYC when withdrawing a large amount of funds.
Metaspins is a newer blockchain casino in the market. It has a large catalogue of slots and casino games and offers incentives for players for their participation, including random drops of up to $100,000. It is licensed by Curaçao.
One of the things that stands out about Metaspins is their 24/7 support with multiple options, including email, live chat and group chat support with instant response. The platform has also applied a 2FA security measure to prevent cyber attackers from hacking user accounts.
Bitcoin gambling is a new and exciting way to game on the internet. It is becoming the preferred option for many who value their data privacy and want complete confidentiality when gaming. Playing on blockchain casinos is also a great way to earn different cryptocurrencies and learn more about blockchain.
Before you choose a blockchain casino, make sure that you do your own research to check a platform’s credibility. When contacting support, always contact support directly on the site or via an email address from the site.
