Fantasy Sports

Fantasy Sports normally is a sport that is a game where participants assemble imaginary teams using real players of a different professional sports team. Earlier it took more than one day.

During the game, points are assigned to certain actions of the team members. Once the game is over, teams layers’ points will be added and whichever team has the highest score is declared the winner. Normally the fantasy sports typically occur over an entire season.

But the rules of new age fantasy sport underwent thorough change as it became a one day game. Players will assemble in the morning and most likely it will be over in the afternoon or evening and winning team is declared.

The marked difference in the Fantasy sports is earlier Another difference is that normally there will be focused playing year after year in a league with your best friends. The new age daily fantasy sports is usually played more online with random competitors you’re matched against.

Here various companies have different rules to join the game. Companies like DraftKings on board hundreds of thousands of competitors, each paying a few dollars to enter. The ultimate winner in the end will win millions of dollars in prizes.

Legal compliance

The Madras High Court raised concerns over why the State does not have a law to regulate virtual games and online gambling and said that there should be a regulatory body to monitor and regulate legal gaming, both in the real and virtual spaces.

The Court noted that online services such as RummyPassion, Nazara, LeoVegas, Spartan Poker, Ace2Three, PokerDangal, Pocket52, My11Circle, and Genesis Casino are mushrooming and several advertisements are appearing in almost all the social media and websites.

In India the online gaming and fantasy gaming are gaining momentum. It is high time that regulators should come up with new rules to make it more compliant with global changes.
