Can a prize promotion be run that is based on skill?
Yes, skill based games are generally permissible, but this is subject to approval from the GDNL. Having said that, approval is not required if the contest fulfils any of the following conditions:
- every participant who meets a previously specified criteria is awarded a prize; or
- no entrance fee is charged and the contest does not promote or sell a particular good or service; or
- either (i) no random draw occurs, and the winners are selected according to previously specified rules, or (ii) the winners are selected by means of a draw held in the presence of all the participants in the contest.
