Here is a directory of European sweepstakes companies:
Hope this helps.
May be that's because in Europe they do not distinguish between the words "sweepstakes" and "lottery". In fact I doubt that any of the European countries have a word equivalent to sweepstakes" in their dictionaries: Here is what you get when you look up the word "sweepstakes" in some European language dictionaries:
Spanish: montos totales, concurso de azar
I hope this clarifies the matter.
Thank you for the elaborate reply Richard.
I know exactly what you mean about the difference between sweepstakes and lottery. The point is that sweepstakes is a US term for lottery where people can enter for free, and for which does nit seem to be a European equivalent for. And this makes it difficult to conduct an online search on this term.
I tried to figure out what other countries use for sweepstakes, but could not find an equivalent term. Yes, some European website use the US word sweepstakes for this purpose, but they are only a few. Most of them must use some other word or phrase so it kind of gets tricky to find these sites.
If you can give me some time (an hour or so) I'll see what i can come up with. Thanks.
