Dream 11 Is Not Gambling: Bombay High Court

Bombay High Court has rejected a public interest litigation (PIL) which called for banning Dream 11, an Indian fantasy sports betting platform. The court ruled that Dream 11 is not gambling. The PIL also alleged that Dream 11 had been involved in tax evasion.

The court dismissed the PIL and maintained that the fantasy sports betting platform was offering a game of skill and not a game of chance. The court ruled that calling Dream 11 gambling has not objective ground and merit.

The petitioner’s attorney claimed that the Dream 11 app was promoting gambling and had not been paying taxes as well. Upon hearing. Division Bench of Justices Ranjit More and Bharati Dangre dismissed the pettition.

“It can be seen that success in Dream 11’s fantasy sports depends upon user’s exercise of skill based on superior knowledge, judgement and attention, and the result thereof is not dependent on the winning or losing of a particular team in the real world game on any particular day. It is undoubtedly a game of skill and not a game of chance,” reads the court order.”

The court also rejected the allegations of tax evasion, saying that it was based on the premises that Dream 11 is a gambling platform which it is not.

Dream 11 is India’s most popular sports betting platform with over 5 million active subscribers. Earlier this year, after the IPL, dream 11 CEO said that they are aiming at growing their user base to 100 million active subscribers by the end of 2020.
