For national game of chance promotions, a prize draw must be conducted within 30 days of the close date. Where practicable, members of the public should be given the opportunity to witness the competition draw.
Accordingly, the generated competition terms and conditions for your promotion must include the draw date and locations, which must be within Australia. You should also ensure that the competition draw dates do not fall on a weekend or public holiday.
For promotions across Australia, an unclaimed prize draw must be conducted at least 3 months after the original draw date (unless the prize is time dependent e.g. an event prize).
Electronic Prize Competition Draws
If the competition draw is to be conducted using a computerised random system, including a random number generator in excel, then approval is required in South Australia. Formal approval of the electronic drawing system must be obtained from the SA lottery department.
