The Legitimacy of Skill Gaming
The concept of skill-based gaming has a rich history in legal, social, and commercial contexts. For ages, games of skill have been a platform for individuals to showcase their abilities, from traditional board games to prominent sports events. Nowadays, skill games can be easily accessed on well-known media sites such as AOL, MSN, and Yahoo. Additionally, the electronic sports (eSports) industry has emerged, allowing professional gamers to compete in popular video games with actual monetary rewards.

Our company is at the forefront of this trend by facilitating skill-based multiplayer tournaments on mobile devices, providing gamers with the opportunity to win real prizes. Unlike games of chance, our games are purely based on skill, which makes our tournaments legal in most of the United States.
Are Skill-based Tournaments Considered Gambling?
Tournaments that are based on cash and skill are not classified as gambling since the definition of gambling generally includes three key components: (1) the presentation of a reward, (2) an entrance fee (where entrants pay to compete), and (3) an outcome that is dependent on chance. When any of these elements are absent, a contest that offers tangible prizes is not considered gambling. In our tournaments, the outcome is not determined by chance, but rather by the participant's proficiency or aptitude, making these competitions permissible in most U.S. states.
What distinguishes skill-based games from chance-based games?
1. Skill-based games rely on a person's physical or mental abilities and learning capabilities to achieve a desired outcome. These games often involve strategy, strength, technical expertise, physical coordination, or knowledge.

2. Chance-based games are those in which the outcome is heavily influenced by random chance or uncertainty. Examples of randomization devices used in these games include dice, playing cards, or numbered balls drawn from a container.

3. Although some games of chance may involve some level of skill, and vice versa, most U.S. courts use either the predominance test or the material element test to assess the extent to which skill and chance contribute to the outcome of the game.
Where are real prize competitions available?
The legality of skill-based contests in the United States varies from state to state, and we have taken great care to ensure that our offerings fully comply with all relevant laws. Presently, our real prize competitions are available in approximately 80% of the world and 45 US states, with the exceptions being Arizona, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Louisiana, Montana, South Carolina, Tennessee, and South Dakota. Furthermore, if playing cards are involved, real prize gameplay is currently not available in Maine and Indiana. Our virtual currency tournaments are accessible worldwide.
What makes our games skill-based?
Our team has created a cutting-edge statistical model that assesses the level of skill involved in our games. The model was devised by renowned statisticians and can be applied to evaluate game outcomes for virtually any game, providing insight into the role of chance in determining results. Our model has undergone rigorous validation and has been reviewed by top legal authorities in the gaming industry.
In addition to our statistical model, we've also developed an advanced engine that replaces random elements in games, enhancing the skill-based components of games with a degree of chance.
What happens if someone logs in from a location where cash prize gaming is illegal?
In regions where skill-based real-prize gaming is prohibited, our app enables players to partake in virtual currency tournaments upon logging in. By utilizing the GPS feature on a player's smartphone, we are able to verify their location and determine whether they are eligible to compete for real cash rewards.
How do you check if your game is a game of skill?
1. Can a player's skill significantly influence the outcome of the game?
2. Are there no crucial choices that rely solely on guesswork?
3. Are the rules clearly defined without predetermined probabilities of success?
4. Does the game's structure lend itself to favoring skilled players over unskilled ones?
5. Are chance occurrences minimized to the greatest extent possible?
