People have tried genuine lotteries on several occasions, and have been shut down by MA pretty quickly. Search for Lootto on this forum and you should find one example.
Events with random drawings like this one however have always been allowed, so the position is quite clear.
The chances of winning the prizes in this event are not purely determined by luck, they are also based on participation and skill - i.e. you actually have to do something in order to to win, you don't just buy a ticket. That is what makes the difference.
Again, including a random element does not make it a lottery.
no cause when he doesnt make enough money on taxes (ticket fees) he will change the prizes or remove them all together.
this brings me to my 50% thing governments/lotteries do.
this is set so that he can make loads of money and give out a smaller percentage in prize when he doesnt make the money he wanted to make.
fuck the random element, it has to be there for him to be able to pull in taxes otherwise he cant make 1pec.
