In most states in Australia, your business does NOT need to get a Lotteries Dept Permit to run such a contest.
Also there is no need for a trade promotion Lottery Permit in New Zealand.
Any Trade Promotions Lotteries in Queensland, Victoria, Tasmania & Western Australia DO NOT require a Trade Promotion Lottery Permit from the Government Lotteries Department.
Understandably however, the trade promotion (eg: “Golden Ticket $50,000 Sweepstakes”) needs to comply with state specific conditions – hence why we’ve had a law firm confirm that our promotion complies.
This firm is https://www.permitz.com.au/ & elsewhere on this site you’ll see the “sample Terms & Conditions” that we gained from this advisor – again, so that we make everything EASY for you.
As a quick reference guide, see the Australian & New Zealand maps here with a colour-code that shows “where” a permit is required.
If your business is in a state (or in NZ) that does NOT require a Permit, the good news is that your Golden Ticket Sweepstakes trade promotion can be up & running quite fast!
STATES THAT REQUIRE A LOTTERY PERMIT
We’ve tabled below the states that require a business to get a Lottery Permit for a trade promotion such as our Golden Ticket Sweepstakes.
If you’d like to run the Golden Ticket Sweepstakes promotion in any of these states, we highly recommend that you use the professional services of https://www.permitz.com.au to manage the “Lottery Permit” process for you.
Most people would likely find the Lottery Dept paperwork “high maintenance” & time-consuming.
Hence why we’d recommend you invest the money in getting “professionals” to gain the permit/s on your behalf – will probably save you a lot of time & frustration!
We believe that their $770 fee for doing this is VERY reasonable – & another BIG BENEFIT is the “speed” in which they can normally get the permit.
