The Rajasthan High Court recently dismissed a public interest litigation (PIL) alleging that the online fantasy sports game “Dream 11” had committed offences of betting and gambling.

In Chandresh Sankhla v The State of Rajasthan and Ors, the petitioner filed a PIL against Dream 11, alleging that the public was being cheated by the game and the respondents were committing the offence of gambling and betting.

The respondents filed objections to the “frivolous” PIL, and stated that, as per section 12 of the Rajasthan Public Gambling Ordinance, 1949, games involving “mere skill” were exempted from the applicability of the act/ordinance, and as Dream 11 is such a game, no fault could be placed on the respondents.
