Legal Online Sports betting in India and the US is relatively new. The markets are growing rapidly and the USA is expected to become the global leader for online sports betting and online gambling. The Indian market is estimated to reach close to 150 billion rupees (≈2 billion USD), the US market 135 billion USD, and the global market at $370 billion by 2022.
This makes India a small player in terms of gambling turnover but it also indicates that there is a huge space for online sports betting operators to grow. One of the main differences between the US and India is the legality aspect. US is a license market where state by state open up for legal sports betting and online casinos. The Indian sports betting landscape is not officially legal and approved by the authorities but as long as offered from a platform outside India not considered illegal.
But what we found the most interesting is not the size of the US or India gambling market. It's some of the offers that are up for grabs for US customers compared to what the online betting sites are offering in India.
