If you rewind back to a decade ago and ask someone what they consider to be betting hubs of the world, the answer would likely be USA, UK or Sweden. These three countries had fairly relaxed gambling policies meaning that you could visit land based casinos as well as enjoy the latest games online. Forward to now and you will find these three in the grip of some stringent regulations. Numerous regulatory challenges have meant that the smaller operators have had to look elsewhere for punters.

One such country that they have started to focus on is India. Why India you ask? Well, why not considering the country is home to over a billion people. Yes there are several million who are below the poverty line but those that have disposable income love to gamble. This is despite gambling not being legal in many parts of India. The government has left it to the different states to make up their minds regarding the legality of gambling. Some have embraced it while others have outright rejected it and have made it difficult for punters to even open their accounts.

However, with the power of VPN, you should be able to open accounts at the following bookmakers who in our humble opinion are the best in the country. Without further ado, let’s start off with the top online cricket betting sites in India.

  1. Bet365 – A behemoth in cricket betting, Bet365 hails from the UK and is one of the biggest gambling brands in the world. It was also one of the first to recognise India’s potential as a gambling hub and has been present in the region for quite some time. They cover all the major sports in the country such as cricket, hockey, football and more. They also provide live coverage of the match which makes it super exciting when placing bets on them.
  1. Betway – Set up nearly two decades ago, Betway were laser focussed on the European market. While this is still the case, no one can deny the efforts they have made in promoting their brand in India as well. They have used the power of ambassadors in the form of Kevin Peitersen and Nargis Fakhri to push their cricket betting and online casinos respectively and offer a product that is well liked by the punters. Their online casino product is easy to use as well and offers live casino games whereby you can interact with the dealer and other players. This eliminates the need to visit any land based casino as you can play your favourite casino games from the comfort of your home.
  1. ComeON – Another behemoth in the world of online betting particularly in Sweden, Comeon has stepped into the Indian market with a big splash. Going down the route of cricket ambassadors, they have hired ace Indian batsman,Vireder Sehwag who is more than happy to promote the brand despite the several legal challenges in the market. Similar to Betway, they have a great product and cover all the major sports and events in India.
