The Madras High Court has upheld the validity of a Tamil Nadu act that bans online games, with the exception of rummy and poker, which are considered games of skill. The ban, enforced by the Tamil Nadu Prohibition of Online Gambling and Regulation of Online Games Act, 2022, specifically targets games of chance. This means that activities that rely solely on luck or chance will be prohibited under the act. However, games like rummy and poker, which involve skill-based elements, are exempt from the ban. The court clarified that the act only applies to games of chance and not to games of skill.
