Can a prize promotion be run where there is an element of chance in the selection of the winner?
Yes, a prize promotion can be run, where there is an element of chance in the selection of the winners. However, see the other local requirements section.
Note: If the prize promotion entails payment of a stake, a license is required, otherwise it will potentially be deemed an illegal lottery. In Denmark lotteries are subject to monopolisation. However, permission can be given if a lottery is held with beneficial purposes or for other non-profit purposes.
Payment of a stake includes payments for goods and/or services, where the prices have been inflated to pay for the participation in the prize promotion. If, however, the price of the good and/or service corresponds with the value of the good or the service, the payment will not be considered a stake.
