Prizes must be awarded as described in the marketing communication.
Consumers are protected under the Consumer Protection Law and so all prizes must be fit for purpose and confirm with their advertised specification.
Prizes can include benefits, incentives or vouchers but cannot be an amount of money. Generally a request can be made on a case by case basis to the DED to confirm whether a prize is acceptable.
Alcohol, pork products or any other product or service that is against Islamic Shari'a law cannot be awarded as a prize.
Campaign organizers can allocate consolation prizes of a value not exceeding AED 100 (approx. US$27), provided there are no more than 100 awards in a single campaign, and 50 awards for each draw in case of multiple draws.
