Indian Virtual Satta Matka Still In Its Nascent Stages

Jul 21st 2015 at 6:02 AM

Gambling is one of the most frowned  upon recreational pastimes of people. It is associated with various evils and is not very well accepted in any society. India is even less tolerant towards the concept of gambling and there are very few forms of gambling like lottery and horse racing which have been granted a legal sanction. All other forms of gambling are completely banned. Goa is the only state in India where the development and running of casinos with many other forms of gambling is permitted. For the people living in the rest of India they have to satisfy themselves with occasional horse racing and lottery games like kalyan matka, satta king, etc.

Internet Gambling In India

Gambling over the internet has seen a considerable rise world over. More and more people are opting for internet gambling rather than visiting casinos and other gambling joints. The popularity of internet gambling can be expected to be more in those parts of the world where access to physical gambling joints is highly restricted like India. In India, if one wishes to gamble they have very limited choices, but through the internet, even Indians, now can enjoy the fun and thrill of playing all sorts of international gambling games. Earlier, the choice of gambling for Indians was restricted to matka or satta matka. Even these games of lottery like sattamatka are also available over the internet, in fact, online it is easier to place bets, check live numbers playing and claim prizes. However, besides this traditional and widely available form of gambling, the internet provides its users a variety of many other gambling games.

Internet Gambling: Not Used Extensively Yet

The above discussion makes it clear that gambling over the internet is far more convenient and at the same time it can provide all the fun and thrill of actual gambling, yet if the recent research reports are to be believed, internet gambling is still not a preferred choice of many gamblers in India. The report suggests that more than 40% of the gamblers, who visited internet gambling sites, did not eventually play a game on it. Along with this 40% of gamblers, there is a majority of gamblers who have yet to take to the internet, thus making a large chunk of gambling population which has not yet benefited from the introduction of internet gambling.

Internet Gambling: Changing Trends

In spite of the fact that a majority of gamblers in India continues to prefer real world gambling, yet there is a significant change in the attitude of gamblers with respect to virtual gambling. There are many apprehensions in the minds of the gamblers which are stopping them from trying out the world of virtual gambling, but there is a significant rise in the interest level of gamblers in the virtual form of gambling. Slowly and steadily one can hope that this interest will convert to their actually gambling on the internet and subsequent increase in the number of online gamblers.

It is expected that in the times to come, virtual gambling will far exceed real world gambling.
