As in many parts of the world, the exponential increase in the number of people with smartphones, and the availability of high-speed internet access in recent years, has seen the online gaming industry in India boom.

Even before the events of the last year which forced many people to stay at home, there was an escalating trend for Indian gamers to pick up their phones when the urge to play online games came upon them.

This is good news not only for the tech companies that are manufacturing the PCS and phones which support the online games but also for those developers involved in the smaller games companies which produce new titles and work to make existing favorites ever more appealing to a wider audience with a stream of new features and bonus additions.


Nor has the development of new games been particularly affected by the global pandemic. Games developed for mobile phones require less close collaboration than those intended for fixed platforms like PCs or game consoles, meaning that remote working is enabled.

Asa result, the traditional business model for games development has been inverted – now it is mobile-first, rather than the traditional approach which saw the mobile offering very much as an afterthought.

Of course, many people are also using their mobiles to pay for online casino games and bonuses in casinobest. in lists what offers and promotions are available to both new and existing players.

However, some online games have proved to be especially popular with Indian subscribers.


PUBG (PlayersUnknownBattleground) is a multiplayer battle game. Participants gather supplies and try to wit their opponents in a bid to become the last man standing.

The game acquired an enormous fan base in India, with 30 million daily users, and more than 50 million downloads, but, last September, it was banned in the country by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY). They ruled that the game along with 117 other titles, was prejudicial to national security and public order.

Call of Duty: Mobile

Call of Duty is a first-person shooter game. It began with games set in World War 2 but has since expanded its offering to offer games set in other wars, in the future, and outer space.

It was launched in October last year as a rival to PUBG and, to a large extent, has benefitted from its ban, although some gamers believe that it is a better game in its own right.

It is renowned for the quality of its graphics.

The latest figures indicate that it has more than 170 million downloads on both Android and IOS platforms.
