Legality of international online lotteries in India

by Mona Singh Writer
Lottery sale and purchase is still allowed in 13 Indian states such as Kerala, Goa, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, West Bengal, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Manipur, Sikkim, Nagaland and Mizoram. In fact, lottery winners continue to share their stories on the web, thus, encouraging many Indians to play, and tempting them to participate in international lotteries online.

Are Indians allowed to play international lotteries?

The answer is “Yes”. This is international lotteries are not played in India. The drawings are also made offshore where gambling is legalized. There are multiple online lottery sites that allow Indians to buy tickets of international lottery games. Famous sites allow Indians to try their luck in international lotteries. The most preferred international lottery games include the Mega Millions, Euro Millions and Power Ball though there are others that promise a jackpot worth crores of rupees.

When it comes to playing international lottery games, Indians are not barred from playing and winning at any of these offshore lotto sites. None of these sites are subject to gambling restrictions or any prohibitory orders passed by the legislative framework of this country. This is because the lottery drawings are not announced in India, thus, allowing its people irrespective of which state they belong to.

However, the question remains regarding the legality of the drawings of the lottery. Indians can have the winning amount credited to their accounts subject to payment of tax as per the country’s regulations. This is similar to the rules applicable to the winning amount from the local or state lotteries that Indians play and is taxed before being credited to their accounts. Similarly, in the case of international lotteries, the winning amount that any Indian brings home is subject to tax. The amount will also be subject to the tax of the country where the lottery is played.
