There has been a significant shift in the way people think about the term ‘gambling’, which is now referred to as ‘gaming.’ For many decades, India has been governed by British bylaws, and even after independence, we are still governed by the same. The concept of gambling has evolved in modern society from a physical unlawful activity to an online immoral loophole. This study examines the laws in India and around the world that limit, regulate, and facilitate gaming. The study also critically analyses the flaws in the Indian legislative and judicial systems when it comes to detailing India’s multiplicity of gambling laws, including those governing online gambling. Finally, the study makes a recommendation as to how these loopholes can be cured.
