What is the Islamic rule of betting?
It is haram to bet with cards and it is allowed to bet in a football game.
What about a football video game??

What is the law that i can decide whether it is allowed to bet or not ??
Wassalam

Salamun `alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu.
The answer is as follows:

Bismihi Ta`ala
Generally speaking, betting in games is not permissible even though when you play with non-gambling instruments that is except horse riding and archery for the players themselves and not others.

With prayers for your success,
wassalam.

Off course there is another reason? Very Happy do you see any Quran or Hadith for the above rulling?

Bismillah Hirahman Niraheem

Ya Ali (as) Madad,

[al-kafi, vol 1, chapter at-tasleem wa fadal-ul-muslimeen, page 391, hadeeth no. 06]

it says:-

Ali ibn Muhammad has narrated from certain of our people from al-Khashshab from al-‘Abbass ibn ‘Amir from Rabi‘ al-Musalli from Yahya ibn Zakariya al-Ansari who has said the following. "I heard abu ‘Abdallah (a.s.) say,

Whoever loves to have a complete belief he must say, "Everything that I say is from the family of Muhammad whether those that they kept secret or those that they made public those that have reached me from them and those that have not reached me."

As a matter of fact Gambling is allowed in Islam and I was just testing your waters. It is undoubtedly permissible for participants (and not for spectators) in horse racing and archery to bet among themselves. The winner can rightfully own the amount he wins. Islam has permitted these two competitions because such sports contribute to the overall capabilities of a warrior, and a Muslim well versed in these is better equipped to challenge his adversaries.

Three traditions are recorded in the book “Al-Wafi” from Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) which state that except for horse racing and archery whenever a game is played for stakes, the angels are infuriated and curse the people who lay the bet.

It is recorded that the Holy Prophet (S) said:

“Angles are present when a competition of horse and camel racing or archery is held. Except for these Three, every competition is gambling and (also) Harām.”

(Al-Wafi)

In another tradition, the Holy Prophet (S) has prohibited all types of competitions except these Three.

“Except for horse racing, camel racing and archery, no contest is proper.”

(Al-Wafi)

An authentic tradition by Muhammad Ibn Qays related from Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (a.s.) says:

“Amir ul-Mu’minīn ‘Ali (a.s.) issued a verdict against a man who had wagered with his friends on the maximum consumption of sheep’s meat. Issuing the judgement Imam (a.s.) said, ‘If you have already eaten the sheep, it is yours. But if you have only laid a bet and have not commenced eating, then you have to pay a penalty. This penalty is equal for all the participants and has no connection with who ate more or less. However, he refrained the loser to bear any loss (of money etc.). The one who ate the least and lost the bet will not incur any loss because the bet is invalid.’”

Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (a.s.) concludes that Amir ul-Mu’minīn (a.s.) has decreed such a deal to be Harām.

(Makasib, quoted from al-Kāfi and Tehzīb)
