"skill Testing Questions" In Contests

Thu Jun 21, 2007 5:15 am

I have seen many contests for prizes in which the winner must "answer a skill-testing question". This is invariably a question in fourth or fifth-grade arithmetic, completely irrelevant to the contest itself, at first glance. What is the purpose of this technicality or what have you?

Quoting Duke (Thread starter):

Right, well the gaming laws state that if everyone just enters say a number, i.e lets say the competition is an iPod and if people wanted to win this they just had to hand in some money and then they went into a draw then it officially becomes a lottery, and all funds have to go to lottery. If the competition means answering a question, then the game holder can keep any profits.

P.s. This is the case in the UK due to a dealing my family has with them.
