Trade Promotion Gaming Activities

  • Trade Promotion Gaming Activities

    A trade promotion 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.
