Supreme Court upholds Dream 11 as a game of skill

The Supreme Court has recently (vide its judgment dated July 31, 2021) has put the issue to rest as regards whether the platform ‘Dream 11’ amounts to gambling or is a mere game of skill. In its recent judgment in the case of Avinash Mehrotra V The State of Rajasthan & Ors., SLP (C) No. 18478/2020, the Supreme Court upheld the decision of the Rajasthan High Court to the effect that the online fantasy game ‘Dream 11’ involves skill and does not amount to gambling.
