Consumer Alert

Sweepstakes winners are NOT required to pay any money before receiving their prize. If you have been called or have been mailed notification that you have won a sweepstakes or other type of promotion and need to send money before receiving your prize you are most likely being scammed.

Over the past few years, NSC has advised consumers not to fall prey to these frauds. Unfortunately, these individuals are now using our name and logo in order to appear legitimate.  These sweepstakes are NOT legitimate and are in no way associated with NSC.

If you have been notified that you have won a sweepstakes or other type of promotion and are asked for money please contact your State Attorney General, or you can file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission.

Sweepstakes Bonding & Registration Quick Facts Infographic

Mar 02, 2017
Promotion Tips

Oh, we love a good infographic.  And, since we get so many questions from clients regarding the basics of bonding and registering your sweepstakes, we thought we’d create a simple infographic to access in a pinch.

GAMES OF CHANCE

Remember, bonding and registration is required in New York and Florida for any game of chance that has a prize pool exceeding $5,000 (open and advertised to residents of those states).  Registration is required in Rhode Island any time the total prize pool for a game of chance exceeds $500 (open and advertised to residents of the state) and there is a brick and mortar or retail location in the state.  This post might be useful.

CONTESTS OF SKILL

Contests of skill typically do not require bonding or registration, unless you’re in Arizona and there is a purchase requirement to enter.

INTERNATIONAL PROMOTIONS

If the US is included, the above requirements apply.  But be sure to contact us for each country you are including to ensure all permitting, registrations and bonds are applied for and approved prior to promotion launch.
