Kashmiri Boy named as RIZWAN2406 on Dream11 won 01 crore on the last night, in a cricket match between India and England.
In 2017, a case was registered against the company in an Indian High Court. The court, in its ruling, stated that playing the Dream11 game involves superior knowledge, judgement and attention. The Court also held that “the element of skill” had a predominant influence on the outcome of the Dream11 game. However, the law does not allow fantasy sports in a few Indian states like Assam, Odisha, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.A challenge to this judgement was filed with the Supreme Court of India, which dismissed the appeal.The judgement provided legality to the company and allowed them to run their operations throughout the country.
Despite it being adjudged to be a “game of skill”, experts believe that the company operates in the country’s regulatory “grey area”. Dream11 is not available on the Google Play store for Android devices as Google does not allow apps that run cash contests.
