Why a court judgement was Dream11’s click moment
A court ruling that said fantasy sports is not gambling was not only a turning point for Dream11 but for the whole fantasy sports gaming sector
When we started offering the Dream11 format of fantasy sports about 10 years ago, there was legal clarity but no judicial precedence. Through those 10 years, people told us not to continue in this. We undertook multiple opinions from the top legal brains and they all strengthened our belief that the product we were offering was a game of skill, and, therefore, exempt from Indian gambling laws.
