Card games played at clubs are strictly speaking not legal, since it is also gambling.

About the online rummy, poker etc., almost all of these sites have their servers outside India, so they cant be implicated. There are still no rules on online gambling/betting in India, but it is still not legal.

I want to ask experts about the legality of gambling in india.. as i have seen 1 website that is which offers to bet almost in every game. That is a UK based site, and its all legal there. Check out the website, and its all responsible gambling, they are licenced and everything seems to be perfect.

Just i wanted to know its legal consequences in India. (As i have heard that making any bet to indian bookie is illegal, so that website is UK bookie)

My Client need advice regarding this.. Please Help.. ASAP

The main reason for the "vitality" of the gambling business is the presence of a steady demand for gambling on the part of players, which, according to well-known economic laws, gives rise to an illegal organization of gambling.  It follows that illegal gambling should be considered as a criminal market.
