Legality of Mystart11
Like all fantasy sports, Mystart11 is legal as it is classified as Games of skill under the Indian jurisdiction. Games of skill are legal, as they don’t come under the ambit of Indian gambling legislations, including the Public Gambling Act of 1867.
The Indian Supreme Court, 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 stated that any game in which success is determined primarily upon the superior knowledge, training, attention, experience and adroitness of the player shall be classified as a game of skill.
The Contest(s) described above (across the Mystart11 Services) are “games of skill” as the success of Participants is predominantly determined by their superior knowledge of the games of cricket and/or football and/or knowledge of players’ relative and/or players’ performance in a particular territory, conditions and/or format (such as T20, ODIs, and test cricket in the cricket fantasy game), attention and dedication towards the Contest(s) and adroitness in playing the Contest(s).
All participants of any Mystart11 Contest(s) mandatorily acknowledge and accept their participation in a game of skill.
Persons must be above the age of 18 years and currently residing in India.
Persons residing in the “restricted” Indian states of Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Nagaland, Odisha, Sikkim or Telangana may not participate in the paid version of the Contest (s) as the laws of these states are unclear and bar persons from participating in games of skill where participants are required to pay to enter.
Persons must have a valid email address to participate in Contest (s).
Mystart11, on receipt of information regarding a person with insider knowledge of participating teams in any given contests/match, organizing boards, leagues, etc., may immediately bar him/her from participation and/or withdrawing winning prices.
Employees of Mystart11, its parent companies, subsidiaries, associate companies, and third-party service providers engaging with Mystart11 for the development, promotion, administration or execution of the Contest and their family/household members are not eligible to participate in the Contest.
Only those Participants who have successfully registered on the Mystart11 as well as registered prior to each match in accordance with the procedure outlined above shall be eligible to participate in the Contest (s).

Mystart11 should not take any liability if a player indicated earlier as ‘Playing’ does not play or start for any reason.
On-field substitutes will not be awarded points for any contribution they make. However, ‘Concussion and COVID-19 Substitutes’ will be awarded four (4) points for making an appearance in a match and will also be awarded points for any contribution they make as per the Fantasy Points System.
Two formats of the Contest(s) are available on the Mystart11 platform currently
Public Contest: here, Users, without any restriction on participation, can participate in a Contest with other Users, and
Private contests: where Users can participate in the Contest only with an invite by other participants.
A User can enter both the Contests single (S) or multiple (M) times as mentioned in the Contest. The number of entries allowed in case of multiple entries shall also be mentioned in the Contest. Any participation in a contest of more than 500 shall be automatically prohibited. All rules mentioned in terms and conditions shall apply to both Contest formats(s). By participating in a Contest(s), Users automatically authorize Mystart11 to appoint a third party/ Trustee/Escrow Agent to manage Users’ funds on their behalf.
Mystart11 may make available the Contest(s) comprising 2 or more participants or any other pre-decided number of Participants.
Mystart11 may run this Contest(s) in a paid format, and the Winner will be determined at the end of the match as per the set rule.
The number of participants needed to commence the Contest(s) operational will be pre-specified. If not, the collection shall be refunded as is to the participants.
In certain Contests called “Guaranteed contests,” the Contest(s) shall begin only when a minimum of two Users join. The pre-specified number of winners will be declared, even if all available Participant slots (as pre-specified concerning the Contest(s)) remain unfilled. Further, notwithstanding the activation of such Contest(s), Participants can continue to join such Contest(s) till:
all available Participant slots of such Contest(s) have been occupied or
the match to which the Contest(s) relates starts, whichever is earlier.
In the event of a shortfall in the number of participants joining the Guaranteed Contest, Mystart11 shall continue with such contests, and the shortfall in the prize pool shall be borne by Mystart11.
Mystart11 lets Users create a private Contest and invite other users, either existing or otherwise (“Invited User “) to form Teams and participate in the Contest(s).
Users may create a Private contest to consist of a pre-decided number of Participants from 2 to 20,000 Participants.
The User creating the Private Contest shall be obliged to pay the pre-decided and also supply a name for the Private Contest and will be then assigned a unique identification code (“contest Code”) (which will be allocated to the account of such User). The User understands and agrees that once the Private Contest is created, no changes shall be entertained in the terms or constitution of the Private Contest. The User creating the Private Contest can invite users through email, SMS, messaging apps, and more.
To participate in the Private Contest, an Invited User shall enter the private contest code associated with the Private Contest and then pay the pre-decided amount for the Private Contest. Once the number of participants in the Contest equals the number of pre-specified ones, the Private Contest shall be rendered operative, and no other Invited Users or Users shall be permitted to participate in the Private Contest. If any Private contest does not contain the pre-specified number of Participants for that Private Contest within 1 hour before the commencement of the match/Contest, the platform will initiate an automatic refund of the amount deposited. Such refund shall be processed after the deadline’s expiry for filling participants for such a Private Contest.
Acceptance of a prize by the Winner constitutes permission for Mystart11, and its affiliates to use the Winner’s name, likeness, voice and comments for advertising and promotional purposes in any media worldwide for purposes of advertising and trade without any further permissions or consents and / or additional compensation whatsoever.
The Winners further undertake that they will be available for promotional purposes as planned and desired by Mystart11 without any charge. The exact dates remain the sole discretion of Mystart11. Promotional activities may include but not be limited to press events, internal meetings and ceremonies/functions.

Responsible Play Policy
Our Mission Statement
Mystart11 encourages all its players to practice balance. As gaming in moderation, for entertainment purposes, will offer maximum joy.
Ensure Responsible Play
Players can also ask for their accounts to be temporarily blocked, in case they want to take time off for some time.
Players can follow our ‘Guide to Responsible Play’ in order to keep a check on their play behavior.
Guide to Responsible Play
It is often difficult for players to recognize that their online gaming is inching towards unhealthy behavior. A reaction to this is to minimize, hide or deny the existence of problems and the troubles it bestows. Many people ignore facts about themselves and distort their narrative about how responsibly they are playing. Here are the hard questions to ask to get the narrative step and check-in with yourself:
Does one or many of these questions hold true?
Do you regret spending more money and time than you intend to play games?
Do you feel guilty or ashamed with your game playing habits?
Do you strive to win back your losses?
Do you skip important things in life such as family time, work, leisure activities over appointments to play games?
Do you ruminate about your gameplay several times a day?
Do you have heated arguments with friends or family about your game playing habits?
Have you lied or stolen to get money to play games?
Do you have debts?
Do you experience relationship problems like arguments, disagreements or loss of connection with friends and family?
Have you experienced an increase in symptoms of stress, depression or panic attacks due to playing games?
If so you need to step back and take a break.
Following are some of the best practices to help you play responsibly:
Keep the motivation to play games as entertainment and not making money or escaping life situations.
Practice moderation, play for a limited time.
Keep a daily check on expenses.
Never chase your losses while playing.
Set aside an entertainment budget, keep track of the time and monitor the amount of money you spend.
