I have never tried online gambling, or casino gambling in India or the USA (except to spend some coins on slot machines in Las Vegas a few times). So I am not an expert, but here is a link with some info that may help - https://simonsblogpark.com/onlinegambli ... ino-india/

"the legal status of Indian gamblers playing on international online casino sites is not as straightforward. The Information Technology Act (2000) does not cover individual players partaking in online gambling. The Public Gambling Act (1867) may prohibit online gambling, but there have been no reports of anyone prosecuted for playing in international online casinos from India."
