Nowadays we have seen various advertisements on Television, Internet, and newspaper about some gaming applications which promote digital betting. And due to the pandemic people have made these things, their source way of living.
judi slot online on games is a kind of gambling. In this, a person predicted the outcome of an event if the statement comes to be true in the future the person wins and if the statement comes to be false he loses.
But betting and gambling are regarded as different in their proper meaning and function.
As per the Public Gambling Act of 1867, all forms of gambling are illegal in India. In India, games are categorized in 2 ways;
- Game of chance:
- Basically, the player plays the game randomly, just believing in his luck and chances. It does not require any skill and prior knowledge like the Dice game.
- It is considered illegal in India.
- Game of skill:
- It needs a player who has the skill, prior knowledge, and understanding to play these games, not based on luck like the stock market.
- It is considered legal in India.
But then why there are a lot of games that are providing you a platform to play different digital betting virtually? Why this isn’t an illegal act?
Virtual/Digital betting is also known as online betting/Gambling. It is the same as any other betting like you bet on things/ moves in that application and either you win if you get it right or lose if that move is wrong.
Generally, it means the use of the internet to place bets and earn money. The user even uses the digital method of paying or crediting his winning amount.
Here, I would like to draw a line between Online Gaming & Online Gaming. Both terms look or are taken as synonyms but actually, these are quite different from each other. The most important differentiate, you can find in these both are that during Online gaming you won’t ask to pay any fee and it will be free but in Online Betting games there will be some money they will ask you to pay for playing the game.
Current Situation of Betting on Games in India:
Now we can conclude that Online Betting games are not only prohibited in India but have some strict punishment as well, it will be considered as an offense. Even Google-like platforms cannot allow Indian users to download those applications as they promote betting.
