India is one of the largest audience for Bet365 with around 1 Million Plus Visitors and Punters placing their bets on Bet365. But the major problem which Indians Face while using Bet365 is their Indian Debit Cards do not work directly at Bet365.
And Not just Debit Cards, Even Indian Credit Cards are also not accepted at Bet365.com
Why are Indian Debit Cards not Accepted by Bet365?
The Problem is not with Bet365. They do not have any restrictions. The Restrictions are placed by RBI and Banks.
Sports Betting or Gambling Transanctions are not permitted by RBI, and as a result, those transanctions do not work.
No matter which credit or debit card you have it won’t be accepted by Bet365.
So to answer your Question, “Which Indian Debit cards are accepted by Bet365?” The answer is NONE.
Note: Sports Betting is an Illegal activity and not allowed in India. You can not run a Gambling or Sports Business in India. We Do not encourage or support Gambling Activities in India. Do it at your own risk.
Then how is Bet365 one of the Most Popular Websites in India?
The answer is Bet365 is a UK Based Business. It’s Based in the United Kingdom where Gambling is perfectly Legal and allowed by Law.
So if you manually visit UK and place bets on sports, you won’t be in any problem at all.
In Digital World, you are free to visit Bet365 but if you use Indian Cards they simply won’t work because of Indian Laws.
Bet365 has made many arrangements for Indian Punters and they accept many payment methods which are Friendly for Indian Players.
Here are some of the Alternative Payment Methods which work:
- Skrill / Moneybookers
Now the question is which of these is better. Our two favorites are Neteller and Skrill. Entropay also has many restrictions with Gambling related payments and becomes uncomfortable to use and thus not our choice.
