Mumbai Looks To Online Casinos As COVID-19 Rages On


Maharasthra has been hit very hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. The state has recorded the highest number of cases, deaths, and is also expected to be in the longest state of lockdown. Mumbai, the city where Indian billionaires reside, is reputed to ‘never sleep’.


There is always something or the other going on and the people of Mumbai seem to be on the go at all times. Work from home is going on actively in Mumbai and people have started to adjust to a new way of life.


It is no surprise then that online casinos in India are reporting a high increase in traffic from all over the country but particularly Mumbai. LeoVegas, one of the most reputed online casinos in the world, also has a lot of players from India.


They allow the Indian players to deposit money in INR and are backed by some of the strictest online gaming licenses in the world. As far as online gambling in India goes, LeoVegas is an easy choice to make.


The company has reported a surge in new signups from India and Mumbai in particular. It is understandable that people that have been locked up inside for such a long time need to blow off some steam somehow.


Earning money or playing your favorite casino games is as good an option as any, provided the players gamble responsibly. The casino has a number of India specific offerings like Teen Patti, Andar Bahar, and others that are not on the roster outside the country at all.


LeoVegas has also added a sportsbook in recent years, something that allows it to offer cricket matches to the Indian public. The Mumbai Indians, IPL’s most successful franchise, is expected to be back in action after a few months and that is when people will have an opportunity to bet on their favorite team once more.


The BCCI is currently locked in a battle with the ICCI over the scheduling of cricket after the COVID-19 pandemic recedes. It appears as if we are going to see the T20 WOrld CUp being postponed to leave a window for the IPL to take place.


We know that every single person in India and the cricket-loving city of Mumbai is going to be thrilled at the prospect of seeing their beloved IPL franchise on the park once more. Online betting and games are fun but the thrill of following live sports on TV is just something else.
