Copyright : Game and contest rule


Why registering a game rule or contest rule?

Filing of the game or competition legal rules will ensure to players, businesses or organizational entities, through the public notary's analysis and validation of those elements:

1. A public offer

2. Hope of gain

3. Chance

The legal games rules mention following elements:

- Details of the organizer

- Dates of the game

The draw is a method of determining the winners among the participants in a game or contest and ensures that they are totally random.

There are two forms of draw:

Internal: directed by a member appointed by the organizer or program to draw, whether by urn or Excel file, the entries that are drawn at random

External: the draw is made by a public notary, so as to avoid any subsequent dispute about the random characters and impartial drawing.

We note that for lots whose unit value (specified in the mandatory regulation contest lodged with the public notary) is higher than 200 USD, the draw is conducted by the public notary .
