Electronic Games of Skill Law and Legal Definition

Electronic games of skill refer to games played through any electronic device or machine that affords an opportunity for the exercise of skill or judgment when the outcome is not completely controlled by chance alone.

The following is an example of a case law on electronic games of skill:

An electronic game of skill does not include pari-mutuel wagering on horse racing and greyhound racing. In order to constitute an electronic game of skill under this chapter, the game must not be completely controlled by chance alone. [Gallas v. Alexander, 371 Ark. 106, 121 (Ark. 2007)].
