USA & Canada:
All our fantasy sports games, including the paid formats of such fantasy sports games, are carefully designed to comply with applicable statutes and regulations in the US and Canada
The principal federal statute in the US that deals with online fantasy sports is the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, 2006. This Act specifically accords legal validity and a safe harbor to online fantasy sports games in which, among other features, the outcome is determined predominantly by skill of participants. Similarly, the Criminal Code of Canada exempts skill-based games from the purview of the prohibition on gambling, and thereby accords legality to skill-based fantasy sports games. We have structured our fantasy sports games in compliance with these laws, with winning outcomes being predominantly determined by the skill and knowledge of our participants while also satisfying the other requirements of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, 2006 and the Criminal Code of Canada.
Certain US states and provinces of Canada have region specific statutes that are currently unclear with respect to the status of fantasy games with paid-entry. In the interests of abundant caution and on advice from our lawyers, we do not offer paid-entry to users of our fantasy sports games who are residents of the US states of Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana or Washington, or the Canadian province of Quebec.
The Contest(s) are open only to persons above the age of 18 years.
India: CircBattle 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 Assam, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Nagaland and Sikkim 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.
USA & Canada: Currently, the individuals residing in certain states within USA (such as Arizona, Iowa, Louisian, Montana, Nevada, Tennessee, Hawaiii, Mississippi, Washington & Canadian province of Quebec), may not be permitted to 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.
