Playing games of skill is legal as it is excluded from the ambit of Indian gambling legislations, including the Public Gambling Act of 1867. The Supreme Court of India, 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 is a game of skill and playing a game of skill for real money is not gambling or betting but business activity.
The Contests provided by Howzat are games of skill as participants’ success in the Contests depends primarily on their superior knowledge of the games of cricket and/or football and/or kabaddi statistics, knowledge of players' relative form, players' performance in a particular territory, conditions and/or format (such as ODIs, Tests, T20, T10, etc.) and attention the Contests in which they are participating. The Contests require participants to field well-balanced sides with limited resources and make substitutions at appropriate times to score the most points.
