People of India love to gamble, there is no doubt about that. Because people have been practicing gambling activities for hundreds of years. In modern times the government of India has banned gambling in India, but it hasn’t stopped the people who gamble online. This is because it doesn’t state that online gambling is an illegal activity. Due to this reason, many Indians rushed to online casino games or betting sites which are operated by companies overseas.

Although offline gambling and casinos are banned to operate in India, online betting and casinos are permitted.

There is also a rise in the number of fans for football. They enjoy card games like poker, rummy. But when it comes to sports a majority of people would pour their money to bet on cricket.
