Sweepstakes and contests are a great way to promote your business. However, there is a fine line between conducting legal sweepstakes or contests and conducting an illegal lottery. In this seminar, we will discuss:

  • What constitutes an illegal lottery
  • Ways to structure contests / sweepstakes to comply with federal & state laws
  • State registration requirements
  • Penalties for conducting an illegal lottery
