    Default India Prime Minister urged to block international online gambling payments

    The All India Gaming Federation wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi last week, informing him about off shore betting websites and urging him to take action against them.

    From news website MoneyControl.com:

    "One of the alarming issues that has come to our attention is that many online gambling and betting websites operated by companies based outside India in tax havens are luring and accepting bets from Indian citizens. These websites operating in India are not only causing citizens to be lured to the addiction and risk of gambling and losing their hard-earned money but also poses a national security threat as these transactions lead to outflow of money outside India through unaccounted and clandestine means," it said.

    There are nine websites mentioned. Some of the websites that are accused of doing the same and named in the letter send to the PM include betfair.com, jetwin.com, bodogindia.com, bet365.com and others.

    “AIGF has further asked the central government to take steps to block the foreign websites accepting deposits from Indian players under the Information Technology Act and Rules. It has further asked Prime Minister Modi to direct the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to conduct a comprehensive probe against the offshore gambling websites for violations of the Prevention of Money-Laundering Act, 2002; Foreign Exchange Management Act, 2000 and other laws," said Jay Sayta, founder of Glaws.in, a website on gambling laws.

    There has been a lot of talk like this lately but no action is taken against anyone. It's all just propaganda.

    All this backlash against nationalism when it comes to foreigners and immigration... but when it comes to cordoning off individual markets and holding money hostage... not a peep!

    Blah

    That seems only fair.

    I blocked most of India's IP addresses from accessing my website months ago.
    Complete waste of time and space as 90% of the traffic was bots.

    If we talk about casino, India becomes one of the best converting countries during the last couple of month for me.

    Depends a bit on the program ... I promote 2 brands in India with about 25/30 FTD´s
    One since 4 month the second one just for a month now.
    Until now approx. $100 in commission per FTD
    Sign-up -> FTD ratio 1:3

    For India sports, only cricket betting will work.

    For casinos, as long as credit/debit cards work - the organic traffic will convert.

    Average deposits range from $100 to $1000 for casino. For cricket, it's a lot higher.

    For webmasters looking into this space, please consider hiring Indian human resource for localized content building.

    No other sports will work with India, other than cricket. The content must start from cricket, and then move to others.

    My Hairdresser is from India and the things he tells me about the level of Betting on cricket his friends do is insaine!
    Do you think India could go down the same route as Australia can outright say they will sue companies going after Indian players?
