The All India Gaming Federation (AIGF) is moving to regulate India’s skill gaming industry through the release of a Skill Games Charter.
According to a press release from AIGF, the charter is crafted by experts and relevant stakeholders from the Gaming and Legal industry, aimed at protecting player interest and bring about transparency and integrity to the Indian Gaming industry.
The charter lays down rules for its own members in terms of legality, transparency & disclosure, integrity, security and responsible gaming, breach & consequences.
In addition to the general principles, the charter also takes into consideration specific Skill Gaming verticals like Fantasy Sports, Online Rummy and Online Poker Games and lists down guidelines for each.
As next step to build upon the Skill Games Charters and siting the need for a robust and effective framework for Gaming Operators, AIGF has associated with one India’s top 4 consulting firms in India to draft an ‘Audit Assessment Framework’ for Gaming Operators.
AIGF said this is seen as a significant step that will hugely benefit the industry as a whole.
