Las Vegas: Legal pitfalls associated with Online Sweepstakes and Contests


This presentation outlines the basic principles corporate counsel must be aware of when deciding whether to offer a promotion. The presence or absence of prize, chance, and consideration elements will determine whether a promotion is a sweepstakes,  a contest or an illegal lottery. Corporate counsel should be aware of state requirements and legal pitfalls associated with promotions to protect their companies from potential liability.

Key concepts discussed in this CLE will be:

  • Gambling law implications associated with sweepstakes and contests
  • Understand the importance of clarity in official rules
  • Become aware of potential liabilities associated with offering online promotions
