Legality
Introduction

Fanspole takes great care to comply with central and state legislations in India to protect users from any legal risk. All the fantasy sports games for cricket as available on our website, including the paid formats, 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.

Indian Law on Gambling

The principal legislation governing gambling in India is the Public Gambling Act, 1867 (“PGA”). The PGA criminalises the act of ‘gambling’ in a public forum and the keeping of a ‘common gaming house’. The PGA, however, creates an important exception in favour of games of skill, by stating that the provisions of the PGA shall [not] be held to apply to any ‘game of mere skill’ wherever played.

In determining whether a given game or contest is a game of skill or chance, Indian courts have adopted the standard of assessing the ‘dominant factor’ of a game. The two most important Indian cases in this regard are State of Andhra Pradesh v. K Satyanarayana (AIR 1968 SC 825) (the “Satyanarayana” case) and KR Lakshmanan v. State of Tamil Nadu (AIR 1996 SC 1153) (the “Lakshmanan” case).

In the Satyanarayana case, the Supreme Court defined a ‘game of mere skill’ to mean a game “in which, although the element of chance necessarily cannot be entirely eliminated, success depends principally upon the superior knowledge, training, attention, experience and adroitness of the player.” By application of this definition, the Supreme Court held that the game of rummy was a game of skill, and did not amount to gambling under the PGA. While upholding the levy of a nominal service charge for provision of a physical space, cards, etc., to play a game of rummy, the Court reasoned:

"Rummy...... requires certain amount of skill because the fall of the cards has to be memorised and the building up of Rummy requires considerable skill in holding and discarding cards. We cannot, therefore, say that the game of Rummy is a game of entire chance. It is mainly and preponderantly a game of skill."

In the Lakshmanan case, the Supreme Court held that the betting on horse races was a game of skill. It rationalised that in a horse race the winner is not determined by chance alone, as the condition, speed and endurance of the horse and the skill and management of the rider are factors affecting the result of the race. The bettor has the opportunity to exercise his judgment and discretion in determining the horse on which to bet.

Fanspole Fantasy "Game of skill"

In order to achieve success at the Fanspole Fantasy Games a user must have knowledge (gathered through systematic research), attention, experience and adroitness.

The skill element of Fantasy Games on Fanspole can be found in the aspect of "Drafting and Playing".

During drafting a user has to use his mind in selecting the players who will perform in todays match based on the rules of player selection. The rules further minimize instance of chance dictating the outcome. To select the best possible team he/she will have to research, analyse and track performances of his players which requires him to invest his/her time and effort.

*For these reasons, the determination of the outcome in Fanspole Fantasy Games is based on the predominance of skill over chance and it is our belief that the Fanspole Fantasy is conclusively a game of skill in the eyes of the law. Accordingly, the Fanspole Fantasy 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.

While the PGA and most state statutes exempt games of 'mere skill’ from their purview, certain Indian states classify all games of mixed skill and chance as gambling regardless of whether skill is the predominant factor. In Assam and Orissa in particular, games of mixed chance and skill cannot be played for any monetary consideration. Therefore, unfortunately, we do not currently offer the paid formats of the Fanspole Fantasy Games to residents of Assam and Orissa but do make available the ‘free-to-play’ formats of the Fanspole Fantasy Games to such persons.

Not all users play the entire series. Some users are late arrivals, giving them less matches to win the series. Hence, such users can play for a phase and lead it to take away phase winner prize.
