Should Online Gaming Be Legal in India?

Should Online Gaming Be Legal in India?

When it comes to the gambling industry, online casinos have had a massive breakthrough in the last 5 years. The traffic on their sites has spiked and they become more popular as each day passes. This type of gaming has a certain regulation in most of the countries in the world, but since it's relatively new on the market, it falls under the law's grey area. Although some deem it as illegal, people find it easy to curve the law by using VPNs and other similar technology.

India is one of the countries that prohibit online gaming in almost every province, but ironically enough, this country is one of the most sought markets for online casinos. It is a very well-known fact that people from India love the idea of playing casino games, which is why they use the 'tools' to mask their location and enjoy everything that online casinos have to offer.

Online casinos fall under India's grey area as well, which is why we wanted to open a small discussion whether it should be made legal and what are the pros and cons in doing so. But first, let's answer the number 1 question connected to online casinos.

Can you Win Rupees from Online Jackpots?

One of the most asked questions connected to online casinos and winning prizes is can you win rupees from online jackpots? The answer is yes. You can win multiple rewards by playing slot games, table games, and card games. Multiple other promotions are also held regularly with the simple goal of rewarding the players as often as possible. This is a win-win situation for both the admins and the players. Online casinos increase the number of players, while the players receive handsome awards for their efforts.

Now that we got that out of our way, let's check out the arguments on both sides.

The Pros

The pros are connected to two spheres - the state and the players themselves. As far as the country goes, the two main reasons why it should be legal is because of tax and employment. Online casinos pay millions of dollars in taxes and employ thousands of people, which is why they are considered as a huge contributor to the economy.

When it comes to the players, online casinos are far more and rewarding than the land-based casinos. They have better payout percentages and as we mentioned earlier, they have regular promotions. To make things even better, their sites are completely safe to play at, have numerous payment methods, and multiple currencies are accepted. Fair-play is also enforced through the use of AI. Artificial intelligence is also in charge of security.

Lastly, online casinos are reachable at any time and place, you can enjoy them even at the comfort of your home. This can be especially handy, especially in times like these, when an outbreak is ripping the world and no one is safe, not even some of the world's leaders.

The Cons

The only con connected to online gaming is the higher risk of developing an addiction since these services are available 24/7. Fortunately, online casinos have programs for players that have developed an addiction and can control them to a certain level. Of course, some of the responsibility falls on the player, but online casinos are doing everything in their power to prevent this from happening.

As far as the regulation goes, online casinos are a bit harder to regulate than the traditional casinos. We all know that everything that happens in the online world can be hard to control, but any country that has a good system would have no issue with this problem.
