There are seven primary reasons why India is the ‘next big thing’ in gaming:

  • 2. Mobile gaming is on the rise – Yes, people still play on computers, especially for e-sport games. But, mobile devices are gaining a much broader audience thanks to technological advancements making it possible to play popular massive online games from the phone.
  • 3. Increase in internet users – The number of Indians using the internet today is close to 600 million, which comes to show the potential of introducing online games to that number of people.
  • 4. Tailor-made content for Indian users – The times of Indians having to adjust to western games is gone. Today, players can enjoy real money games such as Andar Bahar, Teen Patti, and Rummy online.
  • 5. eSports is on the rise – Over 250 million gamers participate in some form of e-sports annually. Classic e-sports such as CS:GO, DOTA 2, as well as fantasy sports, especially that of cricket, is on the rise.
  • 6. Higher focus on IT – India is becoming a global center for technology and online services, which sees the number of IT companies grow in the country.
