The SA lottery department requires that electronic draws may only be conducted using an approved system. Formal approval of the electronic competition drawing system must be obtained from the SA lottery department
E.g. if you use random number generator in excel, or any other random method using a computerised system, then approval would be required.
A manual draw whereby you collect printed entries and draw from a barrel/container, does not require any approvals.
To obtain approval from the SA lottery department for your electronic drawing system, you must complete and submit the application form available at: https://www.sa.gov.au/topics/business-and-trade/running-a-business/trade-promotions/trade-promotion-electronic-drawing-system.
The application form requires:
The independent test report must:
The application process via the SA government department is free but obtaining your own independent reports on the draw is likely to incur additional costs.
Once the system is approved, you will be issued with a ‘SA electronic draw approval number’ for this system.
The SA trade promotion permit application requires you to specify the SA electronic draw approval number in the application form. You may apply for a permit while obtaining approval but your trade promotion permit will not be granted until the electronic draw system is approved. Once the system is approved, you do not need to re-apply for approval with each subsequent trade promotion application as long as the same drawing system is used.
Further details on the scrutineer requirement may be found on the following link - https://www.sa.gov.au/topics/business-and-trade/running-a-business/trade-promotions/trade-promotion-electronic-drawing-system
The approval process may create an unnecessary administrative burden on your office. If you prefer you can request Plexus Promotion Wizard conduct your draw/s as our system has the necessary approvals.
