Games of skill or mere skill are excluded from the applicability of Indian Gaming Laws which prohibits only betting and gambling in all Indian states to the exception of a few ('Betting and Gambling' being a state subject under the Constitution of India).
The Supreme Court has explained skill in terms of superior knowledge, training, attention, experience and adroitness.
Supreme Court stated that -A game of skill, on the other hand – although the element of chance necessarily cannot be entirely eliminated – is one in which success depends principally upon the superior knowledge, training, attention, experience and adroitness of the player.
Gambling or gaming has been defined by the Supreme Court in 1996 as betting and wagering on games of chance only. The Supreme Court in this judgment specifically excludes games of skill, irrespective of whether they are played for money or not, from the definition of gambling.
It is pertinent to refer judgment passed by S.R. Das, Chief Justice in the case of “State of Bombay v. RMD Chamarbaugwala, AIR 1957 SC 699”.
The competitions which involve substantial skill are not gambling activities. A game of skill, on the other hand - although the element of chance necessarily cannot be entirely eliminated - is one in which success depends principally upon the superior knowledge, training, attention, experience and adroitness of the player. A game of skill is one in which the element of skill predominates over the element of chance. It is the dominant element – “skill” or “chance” - which determines the character of the game.
A prize competition for which a solution was prepared beforehand was clearly a gambling prize competition, for the competitors were only invited to guess what the solution prepared beforehand that is to say, the prize competitions for which the solution was determined by lot, was necessarily a gambling adventure or any other competition success which does not depend upon the exercise of skill", constituted a gambling competition. At one time the notion was that in order to be branded as gambling the competition must be one success in which depended entirely on chance. If even a scintillas of skill was required for success the competition could not be regarded as of a gambling nature.’
