Not your siblings, Bombay High Court will decide whether Ludo is a game of chance or skill; Twitterati are amused

When suddenly the pandemic attacked the globe and lockdown suddenly brought our lives to a standstill, there's one thing that kept us hooked and entertained- Ludo.

However, is Ludo a game of chance or skill? This won't be decided by your siblings. This question will be considered by the Bombay high court .

According to Live Law, a petition has been filed in the Bombay High Court by Keshav Muley, an office-bearer of a regional political party, that seeks registration of an FIR against the makers of a game application called 'Ludo Supreme'. The petition alleged that it is a betting/gambling game and not the original game, which is a "game of chance."

The petition seeks a declaration that ludo is a "game of chance and not a game of skill". Hence, provisions of the Maharashtra Prevention of Gambling Act, 1887 will be applicable to Ludo Supreme if betting is involved.

"In the content of the said videos the uploader encouraged people at large to play the game of ludo the Ludo Supreme App and further claimed that it it is an easy way of earning money with an assurance that one would only win money and not lose any," the petition claims.

However, based on the headlines alone, people are finding it hilarious that Bombay High Court will determine if Ludo is a game of chance or skill.

Here are some of the reactions. Have a look.
