Legality

Introduction

GamesFame Inc. (“GamesFame”) takes great care to comply with central and state legislations in India and USA to protect users from any legal risk. All the fantasy sports games for cricket and football as available on our website, including the paid formats of the like (“GamesFame Games”), are carefully designed to comply with applicable statutes and regulations in India.

Games of Skill

Games can be broadly classified into the following two categories:

• Games of chance, where the winner is determined entirely by mere luck, the result is wholly uncertain and doubtful and a human being cannot apply his/her mind to estimate the result or his/her efforts to influence the result. Generally, such games are illegal as constituting gambling.

• Games of skill, where, skill plays the dominant role and the result depends primarily upon the relative knowledge, training, attention, experience, and/or adroitness of the participants. Generally, such games are not deemed to constitute ‘gambling’ and do not fall foul of the laws prohibiting gambling.

For a game to be considered a ‘game of skill’ under Indian law, the element of skill must predominate the element of chance in affecting the results of the game. Thus, the extent to which skill is involved in the game is the key factor in the determination of the nature and legality of the game under Indian law.

Accordingly, games such as Rummy, Chess, Carrom and Wagering on Horse Races have been recognised by the courts in India as games of skill.

GamesFame Games – Games of Skill

In order to achieve success at the GamesFame Games a user must have knowledge (gathered through systematic research), attention, experience and adroitness. The ‘skill’ element of the GamesFame Games is found primarily in two aspects: drafting and playing. Users are subject to several carefully structured constraints and limitations in the game rules (which minimizes the instance of chance dictating the outcome) and are required to engage in a qualitative assessment of skills and relative worth of each player based on his strengths and weakness in light of the scoring criteria used by GamesFame and make a theoretical evaluation of the player’s prospective accumulated statistics over the course of the round at the time of drafting a fantasy team in a GamesFame Game. In order to succeed in the GamesFame Games, a user must apply his/her mind and judge the likely performance of each of his players in upcoming matches, and further the user is required to invest time and effort in analysing and tracking the performance of his players and other eligible players. For these reasons, the determination of the outcome in GamesFame Games is based on the predominance of skill over chance and it is our belief that the GamesFame Game is conclusively a game of skill in the eyes of the law. Accordingly, the GamesFame Games do not amount to ‘gambling’ under central and most state gambling statutes in India.

Apart from the PGA, which is a central legislation, several states across India have enacted and implemented State specific laws governing gambling, gaming and other similar or related activities. Where a state law on the subject exists, it supersedes the PGA.
