Hello and welcome. I am working on your answer and will be right back!

You cannot legally set up a lottery. It is not permitted. The industry is heavily regulated.

You did not address drawing options. I understand about the lottery but in essence my idea has nothing to do with numbers it is merely the drawing of a name.
Expert:  Daniel Kokhba replied 8 months ago.

The drawing aspect renders it a lottery and is something authorities could crack down on.

Obviously some companies and individuals do this anyway and take the risk, but technically it is not permitted.

Let me know if I can clarify anything else.

Have a nice holiday season.

Kindly rate me 5 stars.
