Earlier in 2017, the court’s judgement provided legality to companies operating in Fantasy Sports which fall under “game of skill”. They do not fall under the “Public Gambling Act”.
Namma11 is a “game of skill” which operates based on the provided judgement. The law does not allow fantasy sports in a few Indian states like Assam, Andhra Pradesh, Nagaland, Orissa, Sikkim, & Telangana. Individuals residing in these states are prohibited from playing cash contests on Namma11, however they are allowed to play the free/practice contests available on the app.
A user has to pay a certain fee to join a contest and can win real cash. To participate in a Namma11 game, a user must be at least 18 years old and must complete the KYC verification.
