All kinds of sports betting and gambling stand as one of Albania’s favorite forms of testing one’s luck and skills in predicting outcomes of games and sporting events while having the opportunity to make some money. The gambling industry is a massive economic engine that garners around €150 million that Albanians are said to spend on betting, while the government’s unofficial data say €700 million is the right markup. The authorities decided to initiate a crackdown on all forms of gambling and betting sites in Albania as of January 1, 2019, as a part of a strategy to combat gambling addiction and match-fixing that has seen its culmination in UEFA prohibiting the top Albanian soccer team Skenderbeu from competing for 10 years. All of this, in turn, has forced players to become smarter and focus entirely on betting on international bookmakers rather than local Albanian betting sites.

Finding a non blocked bookmaker in Albania

Due to the recent authoritarian moves by the regime to curb down all gambling in Albania, it has become increasingly challenging to find non-blocked Albanian betting sites. This ongoing crusade has picked up steam since the internet controlling government body called The Electronic and Postal Communications Authority (AKEP) went ahead to block 1528 domains in Albania, targeting mostly gambling providers and bet Shqip gambling affiliates. In light of recent events, it is no wonder bookmakers are leaving the area altogether, however, a number of safe bookmakers still believe people should not be deterred and stopped from enjoying their products, so they continue to accept local punters.

How to play on foreign bookmakers

As the offer of bookmakers is getting scarcer by the hour, you must be thinking about how to find your way around the blockade. Have no worries, we have got you covered with these simple yet effective instructions that will lead you straight to your favorite top bookies such as bet 365 Albania and many others.

First, make sure you have activated your PureVPN, a reliable tool that allows you to access foreign bookmakers' sites that the Albanian authorities can’t shut down as they are not based in Albania. Secondly, you need to open a personal account, if you don’t have one already, then choose the desired payment methods, and make your first deposit to get the right things going. Third and most important of all, select your games and have fun while making some money in the meantime.

Betting sites with Albanian language (Shqiptar)

Since you have to opt for the use of VPNs to access international betting sites, you might feel worried about sites not having a Shqiptar interface, and rightfully so. However, there is no reason to panic. There are betting sites such as 1xbet, 22bet, and Melbet that are highly localized, meaning their focus is giving their clients the best possible user experience, and that includes a Shqiptar interface. Unfortunately, very few betting sites offer the customer support in Albanian, which hinders communication to some extent. To get customer support, you will have to use English, German, Italian or Greek.

Bookmakers that accept Albanian Lek

Another essential characteristic of bookmakers that makes them appealing to you and other players from Albania is the option of paying in Albanian Lek. There are various bookmakers with this option, so make sure you read on to find more about all the various details that can help you find a good betting site in Albania.

1xbet Albania offers a variety of slot games, sports games you can bet on with high odds and a live casino where you can spin the roulette games for a piece of live action. Another one that follows in that line and lets you wager Albanian Lek is Betwinner Albania. You can claim hefty welcome bonuses using promo codes that add nicely to the high odds and a wide array of games available. A great offer of sports betting awaits at 22bet Albania and Melbet Albania where you can wager in Albanian Lek once you have made your deposits through numerous payment options that include credit cards, e-wallets like Skrill, Union Pay and others that offer instant deposits with no commission, and withdrawals with equal speed and convenience.

How to deposit and withdraw

Depositing money and withdrawing it is made quite simple using the well-established payment methods in the gambling world that is fully functional in the Albanian online betting world as well. Upon opening your account and providing the necessary personal info, you will choose the payment methods as well. These usually vary in times needed for the deposit to be processed, the withdrawal fee, and the deposit and withdrawal limits. Since most players from Albania are experienced bettors and already know the ropes of online payments, it goes without saying that in Albania, as in a country that is not yet a member of EEA, players might not be eligible to make payments through Albanian Lek. Still, the most common payment providers to look for are:

  • Skrill & Neteller (world's best gambling eWallets)
  • Banka Kombetare Tregtare (the largest bank in Albania)
  • Payeer (one of the fastest rising ePayments in Eastern Europe)
  • Flexepin (vouchers widely accepted on Albanian betting sites)

New Betting Sites in Albania

The betting culture in Albania is what we can highlight as the focal point when new betting Albania gambling businesses are established. The growing concern seems not to have swayed the international bookmakers from opening new betting sites on a yearly basis. Even though the total population of Albania counts 2.1 million adults, their online gambling activities account for 1.6% of the entire online gambling market which make this European country a go-to country for gambling. Also, new betting sites give tokens of appreciation through various welcome bonuses and bonus codes that might even double your initial bets.

Top bookmakers in Albania

To be counted among top Albanian bookmakers is a much-coveted title many bookmakers are after, but not many would qualify. What separates the top ones from the rest is not only their offer but also their commitment to the fairness of the games and the safety of your money. This list includes some of the greats such as 1xbet Albania, Betwinner, 22bet Albania, Melbet.
