Islam and the Quran

Gaming or Gambling

If the participants place a bet (money or any other goods) and the winner takes it at the end of the game, it is regarded as gambling. All these kinds of games or actions are therefore assumed unlawful but if a third person determines an award (money or any other goods) and gives it to the winner, then it would be lawful.

In sports competitions, earned money is paid by the spectators. So it is lawful for the teams to take all or part of it.
