The paper discussed the approach of judiciary towards online gambling. Recently online gambling and gaming is becoming popular in India and internationally. At the rate with which it is growing, the laws and legislation’s governing such games should be fundamentally clear. The judiciary has taken quite a few different approaches when it comes to the manner of distinguishing between online games and gambling. The distinction between the two is thread line and can create certain complications. The paper analyses these decisions. It discusses the necessity of a national framework governing gaming laws and problems in legalising gambling.
