Do I need a licence?
We can’t provide legal advice. You need to do your own due diligence.
The general consensus is – that as long as there is a skill element then you do not need a licence. Due to this requirement the site allows you to require the competition ticket purchaser to provide an answer to a general knowledge question.
Requiring the correct answer to be entered into the draw means the competition is no longer a game of chance.
Can I change things?
You will get a site that look’s like the demo site above. We can provide some basic customisation, such as changing the colours, the homepage banner, remove things you don’t want, change the text, simple layout changes etc. The administration interface is pretty easy to use. So you have the options of doing this on your own whenever you want.
If you want anything drastically changed, new functionality, changing the behavior of the site then we can do this but an additional cost may be required. If in doubt message us.
I notice the demo site refers to ‘Competitions’. Can I change this to ‘Lotteries’ or ‘Raffles etc?
