Cricket Betting in India

If there is one market that every cricket betting platform in the world has their eyes on it is India. With more than 1.3 billion people Indians are still far ahead of the combined population of all the major cricket playing nations in the world. The passion for the game runs deep in the country where it has often been attributed the title of being a ‘religion’. Indians are emotionally connected with the game and understand it as well as anywhere else in the world.

Online cricket betting in India is on the rise and Indians are increasingly betting in games that don’t even involve the national side.

Is Cricket Betting Legal in India?

The answer to this is both ‘Yes’ and ‘No’. While the Public Gambling Act (1867) makes it illegal to bet on any sport in India the law doesn’t prohibit Indian residents from betting on overseas platforms. This has fuelled the popularity of overseas online betting sites where thousands of Indians are placing their bets every day. In fact there isn’t any record of Indians being charged for betting online on these platforms.

Will Cricket Betting Become Legal in India in the Future?

There is a great possibility of sports betting becoming legal in India in the near future. The country’s Law Commission has made recommendations towards making sports betting legal in India as this will help government generate revenues in the form of taxes and also prevent the underground illegal betting market that operates and thrives in the country. As and when that happens online betting in India on cricket is surely to take lead over all other forms of sports when it comes to betting in India.

Which are Most Popular India Cricket Betting Sites?

Most of the betting sites in India have been weaved around fantasy betting without actual monetary transactions being involved. The market in India is dominated by overseas platforms with bet365 being the most popular betting destination for Indians. Other sites that are slowly penetrating into the Indian market include Betrally, 22BetSpin Palace Sports, betway and Unibet.
