The Mobile Games hosted by AIO GAMES on the Platform are all Games of Skill.
Different Mobile Games may require different skills sets, but each game will require certain skills, such as knowledge of the game, familiarity with rules, experience, reflexes, experience, practice, hand-eye coordination etc.
In 1996, the Supreme Court's three-judge bench upheld its 1967 judgment and ruled that games with a significant and preponderant degree of skill come under the category of 'games of mere skill'.
The Public Gambling Act, 1867 (PGA) expressly exempts "games of skill" from its penal provisions against gambling and distinguishes between betting on a "game of chance" and betting on a "game of skill." Most state gambling laws are in line with the PGA and similarly exempt games where the outcome is predominantly based on skill.
Further, the West Bengal Gambling and Prize Competition Act, 1957, expressly excludes bridge, poker, rummy, and nap from the definition of gaming or gambling.
