The single largest paradigm shift that the twentieth century brought about can be attributed to the advent of the World Wide Web. Internet has managed to connect the world in a manner that could not have been imagined by even the connoisseurs of the past.
The presence of internet can be seen in almost every aspect of life as we know it today, and the gaming industry has particularly felt it in abundance. Online games have been around since the early 1980s and have gained incredible popularity, especially amongst the millennial generation. This rise happened to coincide with the unprecedented rise of the gambling industry, thus introducing the world to online gambling, a phenomenon made possible by the hugely complementary association of online games and gambling.
As per a recent estimate, the worldwide online gambling industry is valued at a huge $46 billion and owing to an industry valued at around $5 billion, India accounts for a sizeable chunk of that market.
People already have spent many an hour of their lives sitting in front of their computers, and the future sure is going to see more of the same, India being no exception. This has helped in introducing beloved games such as Rummy, Teen Patti, Poker etc.in a digital avatar, thereby changing the world of online games forever.
