Skill-based fantasy sport gaming has a well-established legal, social and commercial history. From classic board games to major sports tournaments, games of skill have long offered participants a chance to compete based on one’s ability. Today, games of skill are available on most major media sites like AOL, MSN, Yahoo and are complemented by an emerging electronic sports (eSports) industry that lets professional gamers compete in popular video games with real money at stake.
Are Skill-based Tournaments Gambling? Cash-based tournaments in games of skill are not considered gambling because the generally accepted definition of gambling involves three specific things:
- (1) the award of a prize
- (2) paid-in consideration (meaning entrants pay to compete) and
- (3) an outcome determined on the basis of chance. Without all three of these elements, a cash competition is not gambling. In the case of Phil's Fishin tournaments, outcomes are not determined by chance, but are rather achieved through a player’s skill or ability, making these tournaments legal in most U.S. states
How are skill-based games different from chance-based games?
- • Games of skill require a physical or mental ability and a learned capacity to carry out a result. These games commonly include the use of: strategy or tactic, physical coordination or strength, technical expertise, or knowledge.
- • Games of chance are games with an outcome strongly influenced by random chance or uncertainty. Common randomization devices include dice, playing cards or numbered balls drawn from a container.
- • Games of chance may have some skill, and games of skill may have some chance, however, most U.S. courts use either the predominance test or the material element test to look at the role that skill and chance each take in determining the outcome of the game.
The Predominance Test The predominance test is the most commonly used indicator of whether a game is skill or chance based. Under this test, one must envision a continuum with pure skill on one end and pure chance on the other. On the continuum, games such as chess would be almost at the pure skill end, while traditional slot machines would be at the pure chance end. Between these ends of the spectrum lie many activities containing both elements of skill and chance. A game is classified as a game of skill if the game falls predominantly closer to the skill end of the continuum.
The Material Element Test The material element test is the second most commonly used test in the U.S. and is relied upon by 8 states to evaluate whether a game is skill or chance based. The test asks the question of whether chance plays a material role in determining a game’s outcome. As an example, in games like Minesweeper, a great deal of skill is generally exercised by players, but there are moments when players are forced to guess at random, with the results of that guess determining the winner and loser of the game. Skill predominates but chance plays the material role in determining the game’s outcome.
Where does Phil's Fishin offer cash competitions? In the U.S., the legality of skill-based fantasy sport competitions is determined at a state level and Phil's has taken extensive measures to ensure that its products are in full compliance with all the applicable laws. As of today, Phil's Fishin cash competitions in roughly 42 US states except in Mississippi, Hawaii, Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, Nevada. Virtual currency tournaments are also available globally.
What happens if someone logs in from a place where cash gaming is not legal? For states where skill-based fantasy sport cash gaming is not allowed, a player who logs in to Phil's Fishin will still be able to compete in virtual currency tournaments.
The Federal Government Does Not Define Fantasy Sports As Gambling The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 included “carve out” language that clarified the legality of fantasy sports. It was passed by Congress and signed into law on October 13, 2006 by President George W. Bush. The act makes transactions from banks or similar institutions to online gambling sites illegal, with the notable exceptions of fantasy sports, online lotteries, and horse/harness racing. The bill specifically exempts fantasy sports games, educational games or any online contest that “has an outcome that reflects the relative knowledge of the participants, or their skill at physical reaction or physical manipulation (but not chance), and, in the case of a fantasy or simulation sports game, has an outcome that is determined predominantly by accumulated statistical results of sporting events, including any non-participant’s individual performances in such sporting events…”
