All over the world, online gambling is becoming more and more popular. From sports betting to casino games, more and more people are discovering the accessibility and enjoyment of online gambling. However, one element that slightly holds back the ever-growing industry is the archaic laws that are turned to when people question the legality of activities in their country. Many countries have been slow in seeking to regulate the industry on their lands, or have neglected to do so entirely.
Back in 2010, there was a notable attempt to regulate Internet gambling with three proposed Internet gambling licenses, but those attempts came to nothing. However, in December 2018, Mondaq reported that changes might be coming. Offshore Goa casinos on the Mandovi River are said to intend to close their facilities and create a land-based entertainment zone by 2020. To achieve this goal, it has been proposed that their licenses be amended and renewed on the condition that they adhere to the potential new casino policy and establishment on the mainland within a year of the policy coming into effect. The casino policy itself, they say, establishes the legal and regulatory framework necessary for the state to manage the gaming industry.
Currently,Casino in India is in a "gray area" for operators and providers of sports betting and casino games. Regardless, many sites offer their gambling services to the people of India, allowing citizens to engage in it if they so choose.
