Is Dafabet an Indian Company?
Dafabet is not an Indian company, it is an online gambling company based in Makati, Philippines. Dafabet is the flagship brand and subsidiary of AsianBGE and is licensed and regulated by Cagayan Economic Zone Authority (CEZA) and First Cagayan Leisure and Resorts Corporation (FCLRC).
Is Dafabet legal in India?
Dafabet is as legal or illegal as any other online betting site in India. The law against gambling in India is a bit unclear. Betting on sports is illegal in India, but there is nothing in the law against online betting sites. In addition, the matter gets a lot more complex when you consider the fact that these websites hold legal licenses in countries where gambling is legal.
Since websites like Dafabet are not Indian or have servers in India, do they come under Indian law?
We know that people from India often travel abroad to gamble. Vegas, UAE, or even South East Asia has many licenses, so Indians travel and play regularly in these countries. Not to mention that stories of Indians winning lotteries in the UAE are often in the newspapers.
So, how is betting on an online casino different?
This is the gray area that all the online casinos function in. Recently, fantasy sports websites have also got approval from the Supreme Court to function as they are seen as a game of skill. India seems to be on the way to making sports gambling legal but is not quite there yet.
Up to this point, since the law is a little unclear and, therefore, it can be seen in any way. It is also worth noting that no one in the history of Indian law has gone to jail for betting online.
