Can a prize promotion be run where there is an element of chance in the selection of the winner?
Yes, chance-based promotions are permissible, but this area is heavily regulated by the GDNL. Please note that chance-based games where cash is given as a prize can only be organized by the GDNL. On the other hand, chance-based games where non-cash prizes are awarded can be organized provided permission from the GDNL is first obtained. As an exception, if the value of a non-cash prize awarded does not exceed a specified limit (TRY 115,2 - approx. US$19, for the year 2019), the approval of the GDNL is not required before organizing the prize promotion.
