Yes, TDS is to be effected on those items.

Winning from online card games are trated as casual income and are charegable to tax under Section 56(2)(ib) of the Income-tax Act, 1961 (Act) by virtue of definition of income given under Section 2(24)(ix) of the Act.  

Section 194B of the Act provides for deduction of tax source on winning from lotteries and crossword in accordance with the rates in force, if the amount of winnings exceed INR 10,000.  The applicable rates are 30% plus cess of 4% and surcharge, if applicable.  

Best regards,

It depends on the game you are playing. Generally, TDS is not applicable on winning of online games. However, if you are playing a game of chance like satta, then TDS may be applicable. It is best to check with the game provider to know the exact rules and regulations.
