Exemption for certain prizes for horse racing: This section is not considered illegal from a subscription or contribution, or the subscription or contribution agreement, made or made on a plate, prize or sum of money, the value or quantity of five hundred rupees or up to be rewarded to the winner of a horse race. In a betting agreement, two parties must have a reciprocal chance of winning and losing, i.e. one wins and the other loses depending on the outcome of the event. Each party should win or lose in determining the envisaged event in which the chance or risk is taken. In accordance with the Indian Contract Act, Section 30 states that there are also certain exceptions in betting agreements, so the section is worded as follows: Two parts There must be two people, each being able to win or lose.“ …. You cannot have two parts or more than two pages to bet. You may have a multi-page agreement to contribute to a contest (which may be illegal as a lottery if the winner is determined by skill), but you cannot have a multi-sided agreement for a bet, unless the many parties are divided into two parts, one winner or the other loser, depending on whether an uncertain event does not occur. Uncertain eventThe uncertainty in the minds of the parties as to the determination of the event, in one way or another, is necessary. A bet usually reflects on a future event; but it may even relate to an event that has already occurred in the past, but the parties are not aware of its outcome or the timing of its actionThe first essential thing for the bet is that the realization of the good deal must depend on the determination of an uncertain event.

The purpose of a betting contract is to speculate on money or money while an insurance contract is the protection of an interest. The parties to a betting agreement agree on the nature of the agreement, which both parties will win. Each game is equal to win or lose the bet. The chance to win or the risk of loss is not one-sided. If one of the parties can win, but can not lose, or can lose, but can not win, it is a betting contract. Section 6 of the Marine Insurance Act of 1963 provides that all marine insurance contracts are cancelled by bet; and that a marine insurance contract is considered a betting contract if the insured has no insurable interest.
