The state government, led by previous chief minister Edappadi Palaniswami, used legal means to combat gaming’s influence on adolescents and older customers. The state government modified a 90-year-old legislation regulating betting and wagering to include “games of skill,” including those played online.
The Madras High Court reversed the ban in August last year, stating that while the games had a “deleterious impact,” it would be inappropriate to ban them without empirical evidence or legislative deliberation.

With Stalin stating that internet games will be prosecuted in Tamil Nadu, the Supreme Court case is set to be reopened.
