3.0 Trade Promotion Lotteries

A trade promotion lottery involves activities or events where prizes are given away through any means that include an element of chance at any stage. Trade promotion lotteries must be conducted in accordance with the regulations even if they include some skill based activities.
Businesses, charities and community organisations don't need to apply for a permit to conduct a trade promotion lottery in Victoria. If your trade promotion lottery will be conducted in other jurisdictions, it’s best to check directly with the relevant regulatory authorities to ensure you meet their conditions.

While a permit isn't required, all trade promotion lotteries conducted in Victoria must comply with the conditions in the Gambling Regulation Act 2003 and Gambling Regulations 2015.
