Is playing Sportzax legal?
Absolutely Yes, Games of skill are legal, as they are excluded from the ambit of Indian gambling legislations including, the Public Gambling Act of 1867. 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.
All games hosted by Sportzax are carefully designed and the jurisdiction of prize winners is strictly monitored to ensure legal compliance with relevant laws currently in force in India.
If you are accessing this site or mobile app from Assam, Orissa, Telangana, Sikkim or Nagaland, we hope you will enjoy our practice contests. However, the law in these five states is unclear on playing games of skill for cash prizes. You are therefore prohibited from playing cash contests on Sportzax from any of these five states.
