Best land-based casinos in India - Road to Taste


The thrill & horror of gambling is hard to be robbed off from the lovers of the activity. People love taking punts and watching the luck ride on the roulette, and things are no different in India. While the casino industry has immensely changed a lot since the rise of platforms like Leo Casino in India, still a lot of people fancy throwing wagers at the brick and mortar casinos. When it comes to India, only Daman and Diu (Union territory) and Sikkim and Goa (yes, Goa has more to offer than the fun at its magnificent beaches).

The cities of Goa and Sikkim are literally a roller's paradise in the country of India. The states have loads of land-based casinos of different scales at their offerings-not to mention the floating casinos that are usually a more preferable choice of premium punters.

So, we've amassed a list of some of the best land-based casinos located in India. Let's have a look.
