The first betting centre has been set up by the Golden Gaming International Private Limited at MG Road, Sikkim and was inaugurated on May 12.

Sikkim is the only state where online sports betting is legal and they have now provided three companies licences to set up establishments for that purpose.

After the inauguration ceremony Manoj Sethi, director of the new venture, expressed his desire that he hoped ‘other states also follow our (Sikkim’s) unique model and legalise online sports betting’.

With this venture, the companies are primarily aiming to target tourists that visit the state from West Bengal.
