There was a time when Indians had no option to play online at casinos, as no single site accepted Indian players. But in 2018 this trend changed and now casino and gaming industry is seeing a lot of potential in India and players from the Indian market. That’s why most of the online casinos now accept Indian players and now allow you to make a deposit in real INR to play slots or gamble at different casino games. Also the games that Indians are crazy to play are being optimized for mobile play and are now easily available at online casinos. Recently the offshore Leo Vegas online casino started offering live casino games of Teen Patti and Andar Bahar. Many poker sites also are offering poker games online for Indian players including rummy and other interesting card games.
This has made it easy for Indians to play games now. Until now only a few deposit options were there at online casinos to make full use and fund the casino account with real Indian rupees but as more and more online casinos started accepting Indian punters more deposit options are now added for Indian players.
Indians know that legally India doesn’t allow you to play at online sites until they are residents from states that allow gambling and lottery games. But playing at the offshore casino is no hindrance. You can make a deposit with Neteller, skrill, or credit cards or even bitcoins to play slots in real-time.
