Criconix is 100% legal to play anywhere in India, except in the states of Telangana, Assam, Odisha, Nagaland, and Sikkim.

Fantasy sports are considered to be games of skill, and playing skill games online is not betting or gambling at all. Fantasy Cricket is a skill game because in this game a user does not just pick any one team, but rather uses their knowledge of the game and cricket skills to select the players of their own choice to build a highest-scoring team. So on, and other sites hosting fantasy games, a User is NOT betting or gambling on the outcome of a match, but chooses players who represent the User’s own cricket team based on the statistics of the previous matches. The User’s team competes with the teams of other Users, who are all usually sports fans, to determine whose knowledge of and skills in the game are the best. For further details, please check out our Terms and Conditions, Privacy Policy and FAQs. You may also refer to the Public Gambling Act, 1867, of India, which expressly confirms that playing 'Games of Skill,' such as Criconix, is legal in India and NOT gambling.

The Supreme Court of India, 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.

All Contests provided by Criconix are games of skill as Participants’ success in these Games/Contests depends primarily on their superior knowledge of the cricket statistics, knowledge of players' relative form, players' performance in a particular territory, playing conditions and/or format (such as ODIs, Test Cricket and Twenty20 in fantasy cricket), teams performance in the past, attention and dedication to the Contests in which they are participating and skill in playing the Contests. The Contests also require Participants to field well-balanced teams using limited resources and make substitutions at appropriate times to get the highest points.

People who reside in the states where the law on Games of Skill is unclear can play only free bonus cash Fantasy Cricket games on Criconix and not cash games.
