    Hi Jay, will legislature make sports betting legal? What’s your view? And is it legal to bet on Bet365 using neteller, inward & outward remittance in Indian currency?

      Its difficult to give any definitive answer to the first part of your question. However to your second question- no, it is not legal to bet on bet365 or other International websites as remitting money for the same would amount to FEMA violation.
