While it is clear that smartphones have made communication and internet access easier, it has also expedited online gambling and betting procedures. Especially since there are now online casinos, sportsbooks, and betting apps that are easily accessible via the phone, several punters have been encouraged to shift to the digital landscape. This case is especially true in India’s landscape.  

While gambling is still illegal in India, the availability of online alternatives has enabled the craft to flourish in the gray areas. Unlike certain countries where betting shops can be seen along the street, India’s betting activities primarily take place in the online space. 

Through betting apps and sites, bettors can conveniently place their bets on their favorite teams and players—especially when it comes to cricket. Around ₹100,000 crores (or US$15 billion) is estimated to be staked on cricket matches yearly.  

Such numbers are confounding, given India’s gambling restrictions. However, then again, online spaces have given room for the activity to become prominent. That being said, to make these bets in India, having a good and capable mobile device for betting is necessary.  

While such units can be used primarily for betting, their usage need not be boxed by it. Indians can still use their phone for usual communication, school, or work purposes.  

Here are the best phones for online gaming
