If you want to bet online in India, there are many ways you can do this and with many different companies.
However, it is important to know what the dos and don’ts are and to make sure that you are dealing with reputable online companies.
Firstly, the question most people ask is – Is online betting and gambling legal in India? The short answer is yes, it is. In India, there are no laws against online gambling and different states (or regions) are free to legislate their own laws and further, the Information Technology Act 2000 in India did not refer to Gambling or Betting which left the matter to be resolved by the courts, which has not happened to date in most states.
So, having established that online betting is legal in most states/regions in India, the second question most people ask is - what companies would you choose to open an account with?
In order to answer this question, you firstly have to ask yourself some of the following questions –
Is this a well-known, established company with a good reputation?
Are you able to open an account and make deposits with this company?
Does this company have a good range of betting odds (or casino options) that meet your needs?
