5 Game Rules

5.1 Game of Skill - Legality

Games of skill are excluded from the ambit of Indian gambling legislations, as has been repeatedly acknowledged by Courts in India including the Supreme Court.

The Nagaland Prohibition of Gambling and Promotion and Regulation of Online Games of Skill Act, 2015 defines that “games of skill” would include “all such games where there is preponderance of skill over chance, including where the skill relates to strategizing the manner of placing wagers or placing bets or where the skill lies in team selection or selection of virtual stocks based on analyses or where the skill relates to the manner in which the moves are made, whether through deployment of physical or mental skill and acumen”.

Various high courts have deliberated on the legality of fantasy sports in India (the Punjab and Haryana High Court in Varun Gumber vs. Union Territory of Chandigarh and Ors, the Bombay High Court in Gurdeep Singh Sachar vs. Union of India, the Rajasthan High Court in Chandresh Sankhla vs. State of Rajasthan and Ravindra Singh Chaudhary vs. Union of India) and the position upheld by these courts is that fantasy sports gaming would certainly qualify as a Game of Skill. In particular, there is a considerable amount of skill involved in playing a fantasy sports game as one has to formulate teams based on one’s assessment and knowledge of the sport.

The Contest(s) described above (across the DesiPlay Services) are games of skill as success of Participants depends primarily on their superior knowledge of the games of cricket and/or other sports’ statistics, knowledge of players' relative form, players' performance in a particular territory, conditions and/or format (such as ODIs, test cricket and Twenty20 in the cricket fantasy game), attention and dedication towards the Contest(s) and competent in playing the Contest(s).

By participating in this Contest(s), each Participant acknowledges and agrees that he/she is participating in a game of skill.DesiPlay is a game of skill. Winners are determined by the criteria stated in each contest's rules. For each contest, winners are determined by the individuals who use their skill and knowledge of relevant professional sports information and fantasy sports rules to accumulate the most fantasy points. The success of participants is determined by the said knowledge of the relevant game and players, and their assessment and application of the same. Fantasy points are accumulated through the performance of individual athletes in sports events.

5.2 Contest(s) and Team(s)

  • As part of its services, DesiPlay may make available Contest(s) on the DesiPlay platform. Currently, on the DesiPlay App, Contests are made available for fantasy cricket games. Individual users wishing to participate in such Contests ("Gamers") are invited to create their own fantasy teams ("Team/s") consisting of real-life cricketers involved in the real-life cricket match, series or tournament (each a “Sport Event”) to which the fantasy game relates. DesiPlay offers its platform to Gamers for fantasy game Contest(s) being created relating to each Sport Event, and Gamers can participate in such Contest(s) with their Teams.
  • Depending upon the circumstances of each match, the participants can edit their teams till the official match start time as declared by the officials of the Sport Event.

In case of Multiple Entry Contest(s), a Participant may create multiple entries in a single Multiple Entry Contest. In addition, it is expressly clarified that DesiPlay may, from time to time, restrict the maximum number of Teams that may be created by a single User account (for each format of the contest) or which a single User account may enter in a particular Multiple Entry Contest, in each case to such number as determined by DesiPlay in its sole discretion.

5.3 Gaming currency and Virtual Wallet

Gold Nanyas are used to enter paid contests and those Gold Nanyas that get awarded on winning a contest (Winning Nanyas) can be exchanged for actual money or redeemed for gift cards or discount coupons.

6 Socially responsible gaming

At DesiPlay, we are building an experience for all sports fans, keeping the games close to fans' real-world behaviour. In doing so, we remain committed to keeping our games socially responsible. The app offers two games: PREDICT and SELECT.

Free gaming

  • The game, PREDICT, is a free-to-play game.
  • It does not offer real-money gaming or gambling.
  • The game is played with our in-app currency, silver nanyas. The gamer cannot buy or encash silver nanyas.
  • The gamer can use their winnings (in nanyas) to either play more or redeem reward options such as gift cards and vouchers.
  • There are in-app purchases such as gate passes for redemption stores.

Real-money gaming

  • The game, SELECT, offers both free-to-play and real-money gaming versions.
  • A gamer can enter free contests and still win real rewards by using their winnings to redeem reward options or encash into real money.
  • The paid contests start at as little as ₹2, and go up to a maximum of ₹100. In any contest, we have ensured that a gamer is not allowed more than one entry, thus discouraging them to spend higher amounts. One cannot spend more than ₹100 in a single contest.
  • To enter the paid contests, the gamer is required to buy gold nanyas (Gold Nanya = ₹1).
  • The gamer can use their winnings (in nanyas) to either play more, redeem reward options such as gift cards and vouchers or convert gold nanyas into cash (with a transfer in their bank account).
  • There are in-app purchases such as gate passes for redemption stores.

Responsible spending

We offer real rewards for even our free-to-play formats (in both PREDICT and SELECT formats) to make sure gamers can play without having the need to spend any money.

Responsible time investment

The PREDICT game serves live prediction questions at certain intervals (via play zones) during a live match. The gamer is not required to participate for more than a couple of minutes at a time for a match.

The SELECT game requires the gamer to select just six players without being limited by any constraints. The gamer, thus, is not required to spend too much time in making their entry for a contest.
