Supreme Court of India in the case 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 defined Games of Skill in this manner:“A game of skill, on the other hand- although the element of chance necessarily cannot be eliminated is one in which success depends principally upon the superior knowledge, training attention, experience and adroitness of the player. Golf, chess and even Rummy are considered to be games of skill. The Courts have reasoned that there are few games, if any, which consists purely of chance or skill, and as such games of chance is one in which the element of chance predominates over the element of skill, and 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”.

In respect of any transactions entered into on the Platform, including making a payment to participate in the paid versions of Contest(s), Users agree to be bound by the following payment terms:
The pre-designated amount Users pay to participate in the Contest(s) is inclusive of the pre-designated Platform Fee (when applicable) charged by WinZO for access to the Services and pre-determined participant’s contribution towards prize money pool.
Subject to these Terms, all amounts collected from the User are held, until determination of the Winners and distribution of prizes. WinZO receives only its share of the Platform Fees, subject to applicability.
The User may participate in a Contest wherein the User must contribute a pre-specified contribution towards the Prize Money Pool of such Contest, which will be passed on to the Winner(s) of the Contest after the completion of the Contest as per its terms and conditions. WinZO has no right or interest in this Prize Money Pool, and only acts as an intermediary engaged in collecting and distributing the Prize Money Pool in accordance with the Contest terms and conditions. The amount paid-in by the User towards the Prize Money Pool is debited from the User’s account balance.
Users availing the Services are provided with three categories of accounts for processing and reconciliation of payments: (i) ‘Unplayed’ Account, (ii) ‘Winnings’ Account, and (iii) ‘Bonus’ Account. Amounts available within these categories of Accounts may not be transferred to another category, or to any third party Accounts.
User's winnings can be credited in any wallet sub-section (Unplayed, Bonus, Winnings) in any proportion at WinZO’s sole discretion. Amounts remitted by Users through designated payment gateway are credited to a User’s Unplayed Account.
Each time a User participates in any contest on WinZO platform, the pre-designated amount is debited in the first instance, from the User’s Unplayed Account, and thereafter, any remaining amount is 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 match(s) or Contest(s), the User is directed to the designated payment gateway to make such payment. In case any amount added by the User through such payment gateway exceeds the pre-designated amount, such excess amount will be transferred to the User’s Unplayed Account and will be available for use in participation in any match(s) or Contest(s) or for withdrawal in accordance with these Terms.
Debits from the Unplayed Account to enable a User’s participation in a Contest are made in order of the date of credit of amounts in the Unplayed Account, and accordingly amounts credited into the Unplayed Account earlier in time are debited first.
A User is permitted to withdraw any amounts credited into such User's Unplayed Account for any reason whatsoever by contacting WinZO Customer Support. All amounts credited to a User's Unplayed Account must be utilized within 60 days of credit. If any unutilized amount lies in the Unplayed Account after the completion of 60 days from the date of credit of such amount, WinZO reserves the right to forfeit such unutilized amount, without liability or obligation to pay any compensation to the User. Users may compulsorily be required to provide valid photo identification and address proof documents for proof of identity and address in order for WinZO to process the withdrawal request. The name mentioned on the User's photo identification document should correspond with the name, if provided by the User at the time of registration on the Platform or otherwise within the Profile section on the Platform, as well as the name and address existing in the records of the User's bank account as provided to WinZO. If no bank account has been registered by the User against such User's account with WinZO, or the User has not verified his/her User account with WinZO, to WinZO’s satisfaction, and in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, WinZO will provide such User with a notification to the User's email address as maintained in WinZO’s records at least 30 days prior to the request 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 request date, WinZO will be entitled to forfeit any amounts subject to transfer. Failure to provide WinZO with a valid bank account or valid identification documents (to WinZO’s satisfaction) may result in the forfeiture of any amounts subject to transfer in accordance with this clause.
Withdrawal of monies from the Unplayed Account, may, therefore, only be allowed subject to the following the following process - PAN submission, Aadhaar verification, geolocation verification (as no withdrawal can happen outside the country), the withdrawal bank being that of the same person as per the verified documents. Withdrawal will be subject to processing fees and applicable deductions. Furthermore, any bonuses that may have been given as offers would be forfeited or adjusted at the time of withdrawal. Additionally, withdrawals from the Unplayed Account will be subject to a processing fee charged at 30% of the amount intended to be withdrawn.
Withdrawal of any amount standing to the User's credit in the Winnings Account may be made by way of a self-serve withdrawal request from within the Platform, but the amount will be forfeited upon completion of 60 days from the date of credit of such amount in the User's Winnings Account or upon completion of 60 days of inactivity, without liability or obligation to pay any compensation to the User. To facilitate withdrawals, WinZO may charge Users a processing fee at a rate determined by it in its sole discretion, which may vary for different Users. The applicable processing fee at the time of withdrawal is displayed on the withdrawal interface on the Platform at all times.
Further, in order to conduct promotional activities, WinZO may gratuitously issue Bonus points (Called as Cash Bonus) to the User for the purpose of participation in any Contest(s) and no User will be permitted to transfer or request the transfer of any amount in to the Cash Bonus. The usage of any points issued will be subject to the limitations and restrictions, including without limitation, restrictions as to time within which such points must be used, as applied by WinZO and as may be notified to the User at the time of issue of such amount. The issue of any points to the user is subject to WinZO’s sole discretion and cannot be demanded by any User as a matter of right. The issue of any such amount by WinZO on any day will not entitle the user to demand the issuance of such amount at any subsequent period in time nor create an expectation of recurring issue of such amount by WinZO to such User. The Bonus points/Cash Bonus granted to the user may be used by such User for the purpose of setting off against the contribution to the prize pool in any Contest, in accordance with these Terms. Bonus points will not be withdraw-able or transferrable to any other account of the User, including the User’s bank account, or of any other User or person, other than as part of the winnings of a User in any Contest(s). In case the User and/or WinZO terminates his/her account, all Bonus points granted to the User will return to WinZO and the User will not have any right or interest on such points.
All Cash Bonuses credited in a User’s account will be valid for a period of 14 days from the date of credit. The Cash Bonus will lapse at the end of 14 days, and not reflect in a User account thereafter.
Upon confirming a transaction on the Platform, Users are bound by and must make payment for that transaction.
The User acknowledges that subject to time taken for bank reconciliations and such other external dependencies that WinZO may have on third parties, transactions on the Platform may take up to 24 hours to be processed. Any amount paid or transferred into the User's Unplayed Account or Winnings Account may take up to 24 hours to reflect in the User's Unplayed Account or Winnings Account balance. Similarly, the utilization of the Bonus points or amounts debited from Unplayed Account or Winnings Account may take up to 24 hours to reflect in the User's Unplayed Account or Winnings Account balance. Users agree not to raise any complaint or claim against WinZO in respect of any delay, including any lost opportunity to join any Contest or match due to delay in crediting of transaction amount into any of the User's accounts.
A transaction, once confirmed, is final and no cancellation is permissible. WinZO may, in certain exceptional circumstances and at its sole and absolute discretion, refund the amount to the User after deducting applicable cancellation charges and taxes. At the time of the transaction, Users may also be required to take note of certain additional terms and conditions and such additional terms and conditions will also govern the transaction. To the extent that the additional terms and conditions contain any clause that is conflicting with the present terms and conditions, the additional terms and conditions will prevail.
The terms of play of each game would be displayed, along with the fixed/ variable Winnings amount a User may win on participation and successful completion of a game, on the Platform. Such amounts will be decided by WinZO for each game separately. The User would be eligible to withdraw only to the extent of their Winnings (before that expires) and after submission of relevant documentation to WinZO .
