These sites receive massive traffic during popular tournaments like T20 World Cup, Asia Cup, IPL, Champions Trophy, etc. Most of these online gaming websites claim in their statements that the game of fantasy cricket is 100% legal in India.
In India “a game of skill” is legal rather than “a game of chance”. Now, “games of skills” are all those games where the outcome of the game is predominantly determined by skills factors such as knowledge, expertise, judgments, strategy, etc. These games are usually not deemed to constitute “gambling” and are generally not restricted by laws prohibiting gambling. On the other hand, the “games of chance” are those games where luck predominantly determines the outcome of the game. In a game of chance, you have insufficient ability to influence the result of the game through your decision-making. Games of chance are usually deemed as gambling and prohibited under anti-gambling laws. In addition to this, for a game to be categorised as a “game of skill” under the Indian law, the element of skill must be greater than the element of chance in determining the outcome of the game. In other words, the amount of skill involved in a game is the major factor responsible for deciding the legality of the game in India.
The law in these three states- Assam, Odisha and Telangana proclaims that any game of mixed chance and skill cannot be played for any real money. Therefore, it is recommended that if you are a resident of Assam, Odisha and Telangana then do not participate in any “Paid Fantasy Sports game” for real money. However, you are free to participate and play in “free to play Fantasy Sports game” to develop your skills and for fun.
