Trade Promotion Lotteries

  • Trade Promotion Lottery Permit

    A trade promotion lottery is a free-entry lottery conducted to promote goods or services supplied by a business.

    It is sometimes called a sweepstake, competition, contest, or giveaway. A trade promotion lottery must genuinely promote goods or services supplied, apart from offering participation in the trade promotion lottery.
