Is Online Gambling Legal in India?
To start, gambling was first prohibited in India under the Public Gambling Act of 1867. The act prohibits operating or visiting public gambling establishments, but it has no mention of online gambling. Online gambling using offshore, legal and licensed operators are legal for players from India, but it is also not regulated yet. We have seen no reports of anyone being punished for online gambling, and hundreds of thousands of Indian gamblers play safely each year.
