Google is sued in India for real money games: alleged unfair competition

According to reports, Indian online gaming platform Winzo today filed a lawsuit against Google to prevent Google from providing “real-money games” (real-money games) services. In most parts of India, users can play “skill” games for “real money” (making money by playing games).

Games of skill are games in which the outcome of the game depends primarily on the user’s skills such as knowledge, training, attention, and experience, such as card games and fantasy sports.

Google has not offered a “real money game” service in India for years. As part of a year-long pilot program, Google said earlier this month that fantasy sports and card games could be added to its Play Store in India.

Games in both categories include those in which “entrants use their knowledge of sporting events and athletes to develop strategies or memorize playing cards,” Google said in a policy update. Also, Google doesn’t mention other game categories and how they’re treated.

And Winzo provides paid services for these categories of games and of course many other categories of paid games, such as board games, puzzles, and racing games. Obviously, Google’s new policy will affect Winzo’s business.

In a lawsuit filed in the Delhi High Court, Winzo said the company had contacted Google on September 10 to dispute its updated policy, saying it was “unfair”. But there was no response from Google, thus forcing court intervention.

Winzo said in the lawsuit that Google’s decision “equals unfair trade practices.” Google has yet to comment on this.

Winzo’s lawsuit comes as an Indian government panel seeks to create a regulator that would classify online games based on skill or luck components, introduce rules to block banned gaming categories and take a stricter stance against gambling sites.

Winzo has around 85 million users in India. On average, these users each spend about an hour a day on its platform. The lawsuit shows that Winzo’s 2020-21 revenue is about $13 million.
