Trade promotion lotteries

What is a trade promotion lottery?

Why is a permit required?

To make sure all entrants are treated equally and no person gets an unfair advantage, the promoters of a trade promotion lottery have a number of legal responsibilities. In NSW, trade promotion lotteries are regulated by the Office of Liquor, Gaming & Racing to ensure that they are conducted with a high level of integrity and fairness.

Permits for trade promotion lotteries can take up to 20 working days for approval.

Who can conduct a trade promotion lottery?

Only a business with an ABN number can hold a permit for a trade promotion lottery in NSW. A business may be a sole proprietor, a partnership or a company.
