Avneesh Khosla, Chief Marketing Officer of Vodafone Idea, noted in a news release that gaming consumption had increased significantly in India. To make Vi a favoured location for severe and casual gamers, we want to construct a complete experience embracing most aspects of gaming.

Currently, Vi Games does not appear to provide any popular mobile games. However, it claims to have a wide choice of gaming material from different franchises in India.

According to FICCI-EY research, gaming in India will reach 500 million users by 2022. Furthermore, according to an independent Niko Partners research, India’s PC and mobile gaming income would hit $1.5 billion (approximately Rs. 11,500) by 2025.

Vodafone Idea has been losing money and gaining users for months. Telecom seems to be leveraging content to strengthen its standing and recruit new consumers.
