The online gambling industry in India is rapidly expanding, with new operators showing an interest in Indian players. The betting sites and sports betting firms operate within the murky confines of Indian gaming law. Horse racing and lotteries are the only two legal forms of gambling in India. If gambling regulations in India were simplified, it could become a hub for large online casino providers. There are two more reasons why online betting is becoming more popular. First, India's middle class is growing steadily, and second, cross-country internet infrastructure is improving and becoming more accessible on a daily basis. Indians' favourite games include Andar Bahar and Teen Patti. These are popularly played at live online casinos that provide an authentic gambling experience. They come with real expert dealers and glitzy studios. Another popular game is Indian Rummy, which is much more difficult to find in foreign casinos than the previous two. The majority of players prefer slots. Then there's baccarat, which is a casino staple. This card game is quite popular in Asia. In India, the growing popularity of smartphones and other mobile devices has also contributed to the growth of online gambling. Many online gambling platforms now provide mobile apps, making it easier for users to access and gamble while on the go. Many people in India find online gambling to be a source of entertainment and excitement. For some, it is a means of passing the time or escaping from daily life. According to the research report, “India Online Gambling Market Research Report, 2028” published by Actual Market Research, the market is expected to grow at more than 29% CAGR from 2023 to 2028. At this point, fantasy sports in India are self-sufficient. Fantasy leagues have grown in popularity in India, gaining widespread exposure not only online but also through other forms of media and entertainment. The Dream11 fantasy sports platform is the first gaming unicorn, and the fact that it is the title sponsor of the IPL lends credence to the idea of a business that has exploded in the last few years alone. In 2018, only a few years after the genre's inception, over 40 million Indians were reportedly playing fantasy cricket, kabaddi, football, or basketball. Dream11 was and continues to be the market leader. Football, tennis, and horse racing are also popular sports for online betting in India. Online casinos, in addition to sports betting, are becoming increasingly popular in India, with users able to play a wide range of casino games such as slots, poker, and blackjack. Based on gaming type, the market is segmented into sports betting, casinos, poker, bingo, lottery and others. Among them the market is mostly dominated by sports betting and it is expected to dominate during the forecast period as well. In India, sports, particularly cricket, are extremely popular. As a result, many people are naturally drawn to sports betting as a means of participating in their favourite sports and teams. Football is also a popular sports betting sport in India. Many online betting sites provide a wide range of football betting options, including betting on individual players, tournaments, and matches. Tennis is another popular online sports betting sport in India. Bets on major tennis tournaments such as Wimbledon, the US Open, and the Australian Open are available to users. The market is divided into mobile devices (phones and tablets) and desktop devices. Mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, are the most commonly used devices for online gambling in India. People can now access online gambling services from anywhere and at any time thanks to the popularity of mobile devices. Indeed, many online gambling operators in India have developed mobile apps specifically for mobile devices, allowing users to have a convenient and user-friendly gambling experience while on the go. The widespread use of mobile devices has aided the growth of India's online gambling market significantly.
