In providing the Services, FantasyGames takes great care to comply with all Central and State legislations in India to ensure that the Users are fully protected. All Games on the Portal are carefully designed to comply with applicable statutes and regulations in India.
28.1. With respect to the specific question on the legality of fantasy sports in India, reference may be made to Shri. Varun Gumber v. Union Territory of Chandigarh and Ors. (2017CriLJ 3827) before the High Court of Punjab and Haryana, where, the Hon’ble High Court ruled that fantasy sports games are games of ‘mere skill’ as they involve considerable skill, judgement and discretion and further, and success therein depended on one’s superior knowledge of the relevant sport, prudent judgment and attention.
28.2. By virtue of its classification as a game of skill, fantasy sports do not violate the Public Gambling Act, 1867, and is excluded from the ambit of certain Indian gambling legislations. However, Users should note that owing to legislative restrictions in the Embargoed States, residents of such States are prohibited from participating in FantasyGames.
28.3. For more information on the legality of FantasyGames and fantasy sports, visit IFSG (Indian Federation of Sports Gaming) on www.ifsg.in. IFSG is India’s first and only Sports Gaming industry body formed to protect user interests and regulate Sports Game operators.
