Gambling is forbidden in Dubai. With its strict following of Islamic laws, there are no physical casinos in sight despite the floods of western expats. Because of this, many people are under the illusion that they can gamble online. Of course, this isn't true. Whether they're using a VPN or not, you're still at risk of being discovered to have broken the law.

However, people make their own decisions, and many people are constantly travelling. In the event that you do find yourself in a jurisdiction that legally permits online gambling, this article will cover the best casinos available.

VIP Arab Club

VIP Arab Club is a Live Arabic Casino. The website is one of the best and most played Arabic casinos, in which there is both Arabic and English language to be chosen, and a long list of Arabic slots, roulette, and other tables games.

The site has live poker as well, meaning you can hop into a tournament or live table and play against other players. This adds a social dimension too, something that many people have missed whilst physical casinos have been closed during lockdowns.

This online casino also has many promotional offers and a wide selection of games, making it a well-rounded choice for a one-stop shop for all your digital casino needs.

Casino du Liban

Casino du Liban is perhaps the most extraordinary casino in the Middle East. Located in Lebanon, around 20km north of Beirut, Casino du Liban is an enormous 35,000 square meters with 60 tables and 400+ slot machines. Of course, if that wasn't enough, it's also a theater, nightclub, and high-end restaurant.

Its setting is almost otherworldly, too, being situated on the edge of a cliff in Maameltein. The casino is under the management of London Clubs Internation, which also feature later on this list, and is a subsidiary of Caesars Entertainment.

The casino is world-famous and has been visited by some of the most famous people in the world. Duke Ellington, Prince of Monaco, Osama Bin Laden, and Danny Thomas have all made appearances. 

It's a popular place for weddings due to the sheer size of its venues with great nightlife. 

Maritim Jolie Ville Resort & Casino

The Maritim Jolie Ville Resort is a classic hotel-casino with a lot to offer. Its casino is one of Egypt's largest, with 97 gaming machines, several poker tables, and various roulette tables. The casino has a great atmosphere (and is also situated only 1 mile away from Sinai Grand Casino, another great option).

Of course, it's worth talking about the resort too, as many people choose to book a room there to fully immerse into the casino. Breakfast and WiFi are free, and there are multiple pubs and restaurants within the resort, along with an outdoor pool, spa, dive center, and sports court. 

The resort usually has a good atmosphere, which reflects well on the casino. There's even a private beach to access, so this is certainly the best choice for a casino-based holiday that offers pretty much everything you need during a week off work.

The London Club Casino

The London Club Casino, of which the franchise was mentioned earlier, is a popular casino in the heart of Cairo, Egypt. This 24/7 casino never sleeps and has all the traditional casino games that gamblers expect to see: from blackjack and slots to table games and poker.

There are 18 table games, 34 machines, and the casino stretches 47,000 square feet. With 4 table poker rooms, this is a great option for poker players. US Dollars are also accepted at the London Club Casino for extra convenience, though on-sight exchange is easy.

The casino is actually situated inside the Ramses Hilton Hotel, which is a luxury 5-star hotel with a sauna, spa, swimming pool, and views of the Nile river. Whilst this can be visited without staying at the hotel, it's certainly a great option to have.

There are also various restaurants available in the hotel, including the Sherlock Holmes Restaurant & Pub.


Again, it's important to stress the legal status of gambling inside of the UAE: it's forbidden, and Dubai enforces its laws in a strict manner. So, it's not recommended to use a VPN or an underground casino. Furthermore, the law is not expected to change for the foreseeable future either, and tourists are certainly not exempt from any of the stated laws.

However, there are some options when travelling around the Middle East, as well as some great Arabic online casinos to choose from.

Egypt is certainly the best location for casinos, as it has many more that are not mentioned on this list. Whilst Lebanon perhaps have the most impressive, with the incredibly grand Casino du Liban, Egypt has more options and choices - and many are located within close proximity to each other.
