If you’re looking to play online casino games such as roulette, blackjack, craps, slots or other games in rupees, the only legitimate choice currently available is www.bet365.com. Although the lack of choices for Indians is slightly disappointing the good news is Bet365 is a highly legitimate company, in business since 1974 and owned by the Coates Family. This is the same family that owns the English Premier League’s Stoke City Football Club. Their company processes more than Rs. 5 crore in wagers per week, has 4 million customers, and does business in over 200 counties.
Best Rupee Casinos
Once again, the choices here are quite limited. These are all internet gambling sites we are aware of that allow rupee wagers:
Other Sites Accepting Rupees:
M88India.com – Offers sports betting in rupees. This a popular Asian bookmaker/casino which focuses heavily on Asian sports as well as cricket and football. They also offer Rupee betting in the live casino with real “live” dealers.
Myplaywin.com – Offers only India lottery in rupees. This site is licensed by the Sikkim government. We can’t do it justice in just a few words so encourage you to read our review of Playwin Lotto Online.
Games24x7.com – Offers only Rummy in rupees. This is the most popular website for playing Paplu, the rules are slightly more foreign centric, but it is not too difficult to adjust.
Quite honestly these are the only sites we’re aware of offering online gambling in Rupees. If there are others they are not well marketed, and you’ll need to be careful when finding them to be sure they are not a scam site. All the casinos we list here are at Casino Online are both friendly to Indians and legitimate.
Non Rupee Casinos Friendly to Indians
Be careful of the many online casino guides ran by pardeshis. With Americans heavily censored by their government, including recently seized domain names, many website owners are turning to India. However, these sites tend to be very careless with their research and many of them have pages such as “casinos for Indians” that list casinos that do not even do business in India. It can be quite confusing and frustrating. Here is an honest list of good casinos that are “actually” Indian friendly.
- Williamhill.com – Great gambling site with fantastic bonuses.
- 888.com – A great option because of their live dealer games.
These four websites allow Indians to register using an India home address. When you want to deposit and withdrawal just use an e-wallet such as Moneybookers or Neteller. For more details about these casinos use the navigation menu on the right side menu of our website for reviews or see our page on best casinos.
More Rupee Websites Coming
The government of Sikkim which currently licenses India’s most popular lottery (Playwin) has plans to offer three sports betting licenses in the very near future. There is however legal challenges with this, as gambling is illegal in most of India; hence the reason most Indians wager at pardeshi sites such as www.bet365.com which accepts rupees. However the state government is contending they can license online gambling in their state. Most believe if and when this does happen these sites will be available to all Indians. This would be nice if it happens, but there are a lot of hurdles still to jump before we have dozens of rupee gambling sites to choose from.
I’ll close this article by encouraging you to return often, when there are develops regarding rupee gambling, we’ll post them here as well as update the lists.
