Among all the other banned/illegal betting website, Lotus365 seems to be pushing their betting services hardest in the India market. The company has partnered with several celebrities and influencers, small and big names equally, to promote their illegal and banned platform.

Lotus365 using heavy celebrity endorsements to dupe people into betting

Some of the celebrities have called the illegal betting platform as India’s only legal betting platform, despite gambling being illegal in India, and duped their followers into believing it as truth. This has previously backfired in the case of actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Urvashi Rautela as they received notices from the Central Consumer Protection Authority (CCPA) asking for explanation to call Lotus365 legal.

Actor Suniel Shetty has also gone as far to call the betting platform “messiah of all gaming apps” and promoted the platform multiple times on his social media account. Many other local celebrities have also promoted this illegitimate platform on their social media accounts for hefty sums of money.

These celebrities, according to the Consumer Protection Act, 2019 can be fine up to Rs 50 lakh and be barred from appearing in adverts for one year for false and misleading advertisement.
