In the last 3 years, India has made big inroads on the list of countries consuming most internet. According to a report by Ericsson, India tops the list of average data used per smartphone at 9.8GB per month, a lot of which is because of the lowering data prices and increased data speeds since the launch of Reliance Jio just over 3 years ago.
Significant increase in the number of mobile devices also means more data consumption on rich content like videos, games etc. According to estimates, Indian mobile gaming industry, currently at INR 5540 Crores ($800 Million) is set to grow 22% year on year to touch $1.6 Billion mark by 2023, a lot of which, will be through casino and betting on mobile.
Online Casino India have seen a huge spike in last 3 years, since the time Indian users started to become more data-liberated. Though the physical casinos are still limited to Indian states like Goa and Sikkim, the online world has started to shrink, bringing more and more Indians in contact of various online casino websites and apps.
A lot of online websites like 10Cric offer real money casino India and they have been continuously experiencing a surge in the number of users from India who are using their own currency to put money online and are also able to earn money through it.
Ronny Screwvala’s U-Sports hosted a physical gaming event last year, which was a validation that e-sports has been gaining much needed praise in India and the players can think of having a profitable way of playing games online. It’s about time online casino is included in that as the government is seriously considering legalising online betting and casinos.
