Gambling has had a chequered history in India throughout the centuries. As with the majority of nations on Earth, many people enjoy the occasional flutter on sports, cards, and online casinos.

In 1845 and 1853, the British made certain gaming activities illegal. Yet, there are actually many casinos in India, and these are enjoyed by tourists and locals alike. If you are planning to visit the country and wish to enjoy some casino games then it would be wise to understand where you can find them before arriving.

What is the state of play today regarding gambling in India?
Cricket is possibly the most popular sport in India. With 79% of the population watching the game it probably isn’t surprising that many people like to have a wager on the outcome sometimes.

Many games of skill are available for bettors, but casinos are also popular but only in some areas. India is one of the largest countries on the planet, and perhaps due to this, online gaming has become popular.

Visiting a casino online allows those who don’t live near gaming establishments the chance to play card games and slots. For those that can travel, there are other options.

Where are casinos located in India?
Towards the end of 2020, the Minister of State for Finance pushed for the country to allow more casinos and sports betting. The argument being that it would create employment and increase tax revenue. But for now, anyone who enjoys casino games will have to visit the few regions where they are commonplace.

The four places where casinos are found are Sikkim, Daman, Diu, and Goa. The latter being highly popular with tourists both native and foreign for decades. As far as casinos are concerned, the first one didn’t spring up until 1999 though.

Now there are more than a dozen casinos in Goa with some land-based, while a few others float on the Mandovi River.

Are online casinos available in India now?
Online casinos offer tourists to the country as well as native residents the chance to play games if they don’t live near Goa or Daman. Perhaps in the future, more casinos will pop up, but for now many use online casinos which pay out in Indian Rupees.

If your vacation doesn’t extend to a five-star hotel with casino facilities, then online gaming is available, as it likely is in your own country.

How is gaming in India likely to change?
Anurag Thakur is no longer the Minister of State for Finance, and other members of parliament are less keen to promote gambling. However, what may happen is that some states will relax laws to allow tourists to visit casinos in wider parts of the nation.

Summary
India has much to offer to the local traveller and those visiting from overseas. For those who wish to enjoy their regular gaming activities some planning ahead may be needed.

The future of land-based gaming in India is potentially going to open up more. Until then, there is always the internet.
