18. GAMES OF SKILL
A Game of Skill is a game where the outcome is determined mainly by mental or physical skill
rather than by chance. AcharyaShriGames does not support, endorse or offer to Players ‘games of
chance’ for money.
It is the dominant element of skill or chance which determines the character of the game.The
outcome or success in the Games hosted on AcharyaShriGames platform is directly dependent on the
Player’s effort, performance and skill. Players’s skill and knowledge of the Games
may be enhanced with practice. Additionally, Players on the Platform have Rules and
Players are encouraged to read, understand, and follow them.
Different Games will reward different skills, but each Games will reward one or more skills,
viz., knowledge of the game, familiarity with Rules, practice, hand-eye coordination, etc.
The two main enactments dealing with gaming in India, are the pre-Independence Public
Gambling Act, 1867 (“PGA”) and the Prize Competitions Act, 1955 (“PCA”) and both create
a specific exception for Games of Skill.
With respect to the PCA’s regulatory ambit, in the case of R. M. D. Chamarbaugwalla v. Union
of India, the Supreme Court held that the only competitions that are sought to be controlled
and regulated by the PCA are those in which success does not depend to any substantial degree
of skill. Therefore, it ruled that games that are predominantly based on skill are excluded from
the regulatory purview and penalising terms of the PCA. This position was reiterated in the
case of News Television India Ltd. v. Ashok D. Waghmare where the Bombay High Court
found the programme ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ to be based around a game of skill and not in
violation of the PCA as it essentially required a participant to utilise his / her general
knowledge and memory to provide answers to questions on various topics such as history,
geography, sport, music, politics, cinema, science and technology, etc
