Hello

Casinos and gambling are not illegal all over India. Gambling and betting fall under the State Government jurisdiction. Several states of India such as Sikkim and Goa have legalised lotteries and casinos while betting on horse racing is legal in Maharashtra. ... However, there is no ban on international online lotteries.

Where are you from?
