Online Gambling Dead Zones
It might be more accurate to call India a semi-dead zone because online gambling is in a sort of grey zone on the Subcontinent. That hasn’t stopped operators like Bet 365 from actively courting Indian punters across the globe. Bet365 even accepts deposits in Indian Rupee.
With the massive popularity of Indian Premiere League Cricket, interest in sports betting is skyrocketing in India, as are cases of match-fixing. That’s led to talk of legalization and regulation, but the Indian legislative process is notoriously slow so don’t expect legalization anytime soon.
The good news for affiliates is that tens of millions of Indians live outside India in countries where sports betting is legal – and many of them speak English) But if you want to legally promote online gambling to Indians in India, you’re out of luck.
