Trade Promotion Lottery
A Trade Promotion Lottery in general terms is a promotion activity that involves a lottery with prize winners determined by any means that includes an element of chance or a mixture of chance and skill. A prize includes anything of value or benefit.
A Trade Promotion Lottery is a promotional activity used as an incentive to encourage people to do something, such as purchase a product or participate in an event.
A feature that distinguishes a Trade Promotion Lottery from other lotteries is that a trade promotion lottery is free to enter except in the case of Football Tipping Competitions, where the majority of the fee to enter must contributed to the prize pool.
Generally, a Trade Promotion Lottery conducted or advertised in the ACT must be approved before the lottery can be advertised or conducted in the ACT.
A permit is not required where the total prize value of the Trade Promotion Lottery does not exceed $3,000, however certain conditions must be met when conducting an Exempt Lottery. These conditions are detailed in the Exempt Lotteries Information and Conditions sheet available on this website.
