Lottery is legal in 13 states, banned in rest but available almost everywhere

Lotteries are banned in more than half the states of the country. But, in states where lotteries are allowed, they hugely popular.


  • There is no blanket ban on lotteries across India.

Two years ago, the Supreme Court allowed the state governments to ban sale of lottery. It refused to recognise the right to sell lottery as fundamental right.

Now, barring 13 states, sale of lottery is banned at other places. Lotteries are hugely popular in states like Maharashtra, Mizoram, Kerala, Nagaland and Sikkim.


There is no blanket ban on lotteries across the country. But, only 13 states allow lotteries. These are Kerala, Goa, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, West Bengal, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Manipur, Sikkim, Nagaland and Mizoram.

Mizoram state lottery result or lottery samvad result is keenly awaited in the state. Same is the case with Nagaland state lottery result, Sikkim state lottery result or Kerala lottery result.

Former key centres of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka have completely banned lotteries. The ban on lotteries began around the turn of the century, when social activists raised concerns with people getting addicted to gambling leading to ruin of families.

Though lotteries provided good revenue to the state governments, the social cost was considered too high to keep the practice going.


The ban on lotteries is not very effective as they operate online and the operators have introduced several tricks like ‘single-digit’ matches that fetch small prizes announced daily. Big weekly prizes are announced separately.

There are also many illegal lotteries, being operated by anonymous players. They have wide reach as they are run online.

For example, Kerala lottery result was announced yesterday. Its Akshaya lottery AK 291 draw was held yesterday in Thiruvanthapuram. People can check Kerala lottery results live.

Prizes for all the winners of the Kerala lottery results are:

1st Prize- Rs 65,00,000

Consolation Prize- Rs 10,000

2nd Prize- Rs 2,00,000

3rd Prize- Rs 10,000

4th Prize- Rs 5,000

5th Prize- Rs 2,000

6th Prize- Rs 1,000
