none of the parties who have an interest other than the sum or bet that it will not win or lose, there is no other real consideration for the organization of the contract by either party. 3. In a betting agreement, neither party has an interest in an event occurring or not happening. But in an insurance contract, both parties are interested in the object. With regard to the supplementary position, it was also found that it was not possible to recover the deposit paid in the betting contract; in a case subject to the provisions of paragraph 1 of the Bombay Act, as the person suing the winter or a loser of the transaction. [44] The bet is based on chance. That is why it is necessary for both sides to have an equal chance of winning and for both sides to have the opportunity to win or lose. Agreements that fix results on a party do not bet an agreement. There must be two results of the event and a fair chance will be given to the parties. If winning or losing is entirely based on skill, there is no bet. Another element of the betting agreement is that each party should win or lose depending on the uncertain event. The Supreme Court held that where an agreement has the effect of providing a guarantee for another or assistance intended to facilitate the implementation of the purpose of the other convention, which is in itself non-prohibited within the meaning of S 23 of the Contracts Act, it may be imposed as a security agreement.

On the other hand, if it is part of a mechanism to defeat what the law has effectively prohibited, the courts will not accept a claim based on the agreement, because it is tainted by an illegality of the purpose sought by S 23 of the Contracts Act. An agreement cannot be characterized as prohibited or illegal simply because it gives rise to a nullity contract. an unducded agreement, if it is related to other facts, may be part of a transaction that creates legal rights, but this is not the case if the object is prohibited or mala in it. In England, too, betting contract agreements were not invalidated until the Gambling Act was passed in 1892. For example, in Read v Anderson[xxxvii], a betting firm made bets on its own behalf at the defendant`s request on behalf of the defendant.
