Default Is it legal to buy overseas lottery tickets using a UAE bank card?

The title pretty much says it all. I'd like to have a go at a big lottery draw back home, but would need to use my UAE bank card and just want to make sure that there won't be any issues.

I understand that gambling is illegal in the UAE although there are lotteries drawn in the UAE itself. That said, they appear to be more like raffles ("draw a ticket out of a hat") than what I would call a lottery (e.g. five random numbers are selected).

What do you think?

Thanks in advance!

You are asking the wrong people. You should be asking those who run the lottery.
