Games of skill are legal, as they are excluded from the ambit of Indian gambling legislations including, the Public Gambling Act of 1867.The Indian Supreme Court in the cases of State of Andhra Pradesh v. K Satyanarayana (AIR 1968 SC 825) and KR Lakshmanan v. State of Tamil Nadu (AIR 1996 SC 1153) has held that a game in which success depends predominantly upon the superior knowledge, training, attention, experience and adroitness of the player shall be classified as a game of skill. The Contest (s) described above (across the Playdude Services) are games of skill as success of Participants depends primarily on their superior knowledge of the games of cricket and/or football, knowledge of players' relative form, players' performance in a particular territory, conditions and/or format (such as ODIs, test cricket and Twenty20 in the cricket fantasy game), attention and dedication towards the Contest(s) and adroitness in playing the Contest(s).

By participating in this Contest(s), each Participant acknowledges and agrees that he/she is participating in a game of skill.
11.   Eligibility -
The Contest(s) are open only to persons above the age of 18 years. The Contest(s) are open only to persons, currently residing in India. Playdude may, in accordance with the laws prevailing in certain Indian states, bar individuals residing in those states from participating in the Contest(s). Currently, individuals residing in the Indian states of Sikkim, Nagaland, Assam, Odisha or Telangana may not participate in the paid version of the Contest as the laws of these states bar persons from participating in games of skill where participants are required to pay to enter.

Playdude provides users with three categories of accounts for the processing and reconciliation of payments in relation to the Playdude Services:
a.       'Deposit Account, b.      Winnings Account, and c.       ‘Cash Bonus’ Account. The User's winnings in any Contest will reflect as credits to the User's Winnings Account. It is clarified that in no instance will Playdude permit the transfer of any amounts in the User's accounts to any other category of account held by the user with Playdude or any third-party account, including a bank account held by a third party. Users shall be required to remit the required amount to Playdude through the designated payment gateway. The payment made shall be credited to the User's accounts and each time a User enters a round, the applicable amount towards participation in the round shall be debited from the User's account. In debiting amounts from the User's accounts towards the participation fee of such user in any round or Contest(s), Playdude shall first debit the User's 'Deposit' Account, thereafter, any remaining amount of participation fee shall be debited from the User's Cash Bonus Account and thereafter, any remaining amount of participation fee shall be debited from the User's Winning Account. In case there is any amount remaining to be paid by the User in relation to such User's participation in any round(s) or Contest(s), the User will be taken to the designated payment gateway to give effect to such payment. In case any amount added by the User through such payment gateway exceeds the remaining amount of participation fee, the amount in excess shall be transferred to the User's 'Deposit’ Account and will be available for use in participation in any round(s) or Contest(s) or for withdrawal in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. Debits from the ' Deposit ' Account for the purpose of enabling a user's participation in a Contest shall be made in order of the date of credit of amounts in the ' Deposit ' Account, and accordingly amounts credited into ' Deposit ' Account earlier in time shall be debited first. A User shall not be permitted to withdraw any amounts credited into such User's ' Deposit ' Account for any reason whatsoever by contacting Playdude Customer Support. All amounts credited into a User's ' Deposit ' Account must be utilised within 365 days of credit. In case any unutilised amount lies in the ' Deposit ' Account after the completion of 365 days from the date of credit of such amount, Playdude reserves the right to forfeit such unutilised amount, without liability or obligation to pay any compensation to the User. Withdrawal of any amount standing to the User's credit in the Winnings Account may be made by way of a request to Playdude but shall occur automatically upon completion of 365 days from the date of credit of such amount in the User's Winnings Account. In either case, Playdude shall affect an online transfer to the User's bank account on record with Playdude within a commercially reasonable period. Such transfer will reflect as a debit to the User's Winnings Account. Playdude shall not charge any processing fee for the online transfer of such amount from the Winnings Account to the User's bank account on record with Playdude. Users are requested to note that they will be required to provide valid photo identification and address proof documents for proof of identity and address for Playdude to process the withdrawal request. The name mentioned on the User's photo identification document should correspond with the name provided by the User at the time of registration on Playdude, as well as the name and address existing in the records of the User's bank account as provided to Playdude. In the event that no bank account has been registered by the User against such User's account with Playdude, or the User has not verified his/her User account with Playdude, to Playdude's satisfaction and in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, Playdude shall provide such User with a notification to the User's email address as on record with Playdude at least 30 days prior to the Auto Transfer Date, and in case the User fails to register a bank account with his/her User Account and/or to verify his/her User Account by the Auto Transfer Date, Playdude shall be entitled to forfeit any amounts subject to transfer on the Auto Transfer Date. Failure to provide Playdude with a valid bank account or valid identification documents (to Playdude's satisfaction) may result in the forfeiture of any amounts subject to transfer in accordance with this clause. The Cash Bonus Account shall contain amounts gratuitously issued by Playdude to the User for use in participation in any Contest(s) and no User shall be permitted to transfer or request the transfer of any amount into the Cash Bonus Account. The usage of any amounts issued and present in the Cash Bonus Account shall be subject to the limitations and restrictions, including without limitation, restrictions as to time within which such amount must be used, as applied by Playdude and notified to the User at the time of issue of such amount. The issue of any amount to the Cash Bonus Account is subject to the sole discretion of Playdude and cannot be demanded by any User as a matter of right. The issue of any such amount by Playdude on any day shall not entitle the user to demand the issuance of such amount at any subsequent period nor create an expectation of recurring issue of such amount by Playdude to such User. The amount standing to the credit of the User in the Cash Bonus Account may be used by such User for the sole purpose of setting off against the participation fee in any Contest, in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. The amount standing to the credit of the User in such User's Cash Bonus Account shall not be withdraw-able or transferrable to any other account of the User, including the bank account of such User, or of any other User or person, other that as part of the winnings of a User in any Contest(s). In case the User terminates his/her account with Playdude or such account if terminated by Playdude, all amounts standing to the credit of such User in the Cash Bonus Account shall return to Playdude and the User shall not have any right or interest in such amounts. Users agree that once they confirm a transaction on Playdude, they shall be bound by and make payment for that transaction. The User acknowledges that transactions on Playdude may take up to 24 hours to be processed. Any amount paid or transferred into the User's 'Deposit' Account or Winnings Account may take up to 24 hours to reflect in the User's 'Deposit' Account or Winnings Account balance.
