Legality

JUSTKHELO LEGALITY

The Public Gambling Act of 1867 does not apply to games of skill, since they are excluded from Indian gambling legislations. The Indian Supreme Court in the cases of State of Andhra Pradesh v. K Satyanarayana (AIR 1968 SC 825) and KR Lakshmanan v. State of Tamil Nadu (AIR 1996 SC 1153) has held that a game in which success depends predominantly upon the superior knowledge, training, attention, experience, and adroitness of the player shall be classified as a game of skill.

Contest described above (same across Ninja Services) are games of skill since success depends upon Participants' knowledge of statistics of cricket, football, basketball, hockey, volleyball, kabaddi, knowledge of players' relative form, players' performance in a particular territory, conditions format (such as ODIs, test cricket and Twenty20 in the cricket fantasy game), attention and dedication towards the Contest(s) and adroitness in playing the Contest(s).
