Today we are going to review yet another fantasy app that just came into the Indian market. The app is called “Khelo Fantasy Live“.

What is Khelo Fantasy Live?
Khelo Fantasy Live follows the same trend of fantasy apps where players have to make their own virtual teams and earn points on the basis of real-life matches.
Khelo Fantasy Live is the newest fantasy sports app in the market, launched by Gig Work Private Limited (a subsidiary of Capital Group). Khelo Fantasy Live has recently appointed Samir Kochhar as its brand ambassador.
While other fantasy sports app has big cricketers like Ms. Dhoni, Virat Kohli, and Saurav Ganguly and their brand ambassador, Khelo Fantasy Live has gone in a different direction with Samir Kochhar.
However, since fantasy sports are more about the common man than actual players, Samir Kochhar perfectly represents the average cricket fan who’s always boasting about his/her cricket knowledge!
Even though Khelo Fantasy started its journey with only cricket, users can also play fantasy football competitions on the app.
Is Khelo Fantasy safe?
Khelo Fantasy is a member of FIFS (Federation of Indian Fantasy Sports), a legal body in India governing fantasy sports and ensuring fair play and quality standards. They have added their certifications on their website and is SSL secure.
Is Khelo Fantasy legal?
Yes, Khelo Fantasy is completely legal and as per the Government rules and laws. Since Khelo Fantasy Live is a game of “skill” and not a game of “chance”, according to a Supreme Court verdict, it is 100% legal to play.
However, if you are using the app from the state of Assam, Orissa, or Telangana, you are prohibited from playing cash contests on Khelo Fantasy as the law doesn’t allow users of this state to play cash contests on fantasy apps. This law applies to all fantasy sports apps like Dream11, MPL, and more.
