Can i play lottery in countries outside India online?
I want to know that can i playing a lottery held in other Countries from India is a crime or not? And if not, depositing money in that website which will buy me a ticket also a crime.
Gambling/Lottery is an offence in India except in the states of Sikkim & Goa.
In your case the incidence takes place in some other country where gambling is not an offence.
It will not be treated as a crime in India but the amount brought in India will be taxed.
