USA & Canada:
All our fantasy sports games, including the paid formats of such fantasy sports
games, are carefully designed to comply with applicable statutes and regulations
in the US and Canada
The principal federal statute in the US that deals with online fantasy sports is
the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, 2006. This Act specifically accords
legal validity and a safe harbor to online fantasy sports games in which, among
other features, the outcome is determined predominantly by skill of participants.
Similarly, the Criminal Code of Canada exempts skill-based games from the purview
of the prohibition on gambling, and thereby accords legality to skill-based fantasy
sports games. We have structured our fantasy sports games in compliance with these
laws, with winning outcomes being predominantly determined by the skill and knowledge
of our participants while also satisfying the other requirements of the Unlawful
Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, 2006 and the Criminal Code of Canada.
Certain US states and provinces of Canada have region specific statutes that are
currently unclear with respect to the status of fantasy games with paid-entry. In
the interests of abundant caution and on advice from our lawyers, we do not offer
paid-entry to users of our fantasy sports games who are residents of the US states
of Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana or Washington, or the Canadian province of
Other Countries: This Game is open to residents of all other countries where such
activities are legally permitted. PCF will assume (and by using the Site
you warrant that) either you have legal capacity to enter into the agreement set
legal positions about fantasy sports in your country).
By participating in this Contest(s), each Participant acknowledges and agrees that
he/she is participating in a game of skill.
The Contest(s) are open only to persons above the age of 18 years.
India: CircBattle may, in accordance with the laws prevailing in certain Indian
states, bar individuals residing in those states from participating in the Contest(s).
Currently, individuals residing in the Indian states of Assam, Orissa and Telangana may not
participate in the paid version of the Contest as the laws of these states bar persons
from participating in games of skill where participants are required to pay to enter.
USA & Canada: You are resident of the United States of America (Eligible Territories
which excludes the states of Arizona, Iowa, Louisian, Montana, Nevada, Tennessee,
Hawaiii, Mississippi, Washington & Canadian province of Quebec), residing in any
jurisdiction within the Eligible Territories where the Services you select to participate
