The Islamic law that serves as the foundation for the legal system in Saudi Arabia prohibits any gaming. Gambling is prohibited in all forms because it is considered evil and harmful under Islamic law, or Sharia.
As a result, neither the creation nor the functioning of casinos is governed by any laws or regulations specific to the kingdom. Furthermore, as part of their internet censorship efforts, Saudi officials frequently restrict access to online casinos, making it difficult for Saudi players to play.
Some Saudis surpass the prohibitions by utilizing Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) to access international online casinos. However, they do so at significant personal risk since gambling is illegal in many places and may result in hefty fines and even jail time.
