Due to coronavirus pandemic, many businesses were shut down since March this year, and two months later, they’re slowly recovering. This situation also affected the work of Kerala State Lotteries and Sikkim State Lotteries – two main traditional lotto shops in India. After two long months, the situation is changing for the better.
Finance Minister Thomas Isaac decided and announced that lottery distribution in Kerala will resume on May 18. This made a lot of lottery players very happy. Sikkim State Lottery, on the other hand, still has no new announcements, beside the notice about false tickets and lottery results of some miscreants. They’ve made it clear that their draw was postponed since 23. March, due to the lockdown of the entire country, and this decision is still in power.
Since lottery players were not able to buy tickets in traditional lotteries in India, they turned to online lotteries. Many internationally popular casino websites accept Indian players and offer lottery games. It doesn’t matter where their offices are, because buying tickets, draws, and withdrawing prizes, etc. can happen online. The distance is not an obstacle. For example, Lottoland has a main office in Gibraltar but it’s still one of the most popular online lotteries in India. They offer casino services to gamblers from all over the world. One of the reasons people from India trust this site is because it’s licensed by the Government of Gibraltar, the Gambling Commission of Great Britain, and the Irish National Excise License Office.
It used to be very hard to find a safe and trustworthy online lottery, but now, when so many sources are available online, it’s so much easier. People can find information about the license of online lottery and check if their operator supports responsible gaming. The coronavirus lockdown made people who are usually not that interested in technology and are not fans of the digital world, cross to that side. During the COVID-19 pandemic, they were using all the benefits that internet can provide.
