Q: Are competitions legal in the UK? 

 

A: Yes, you are able to run competitions in the UK providing there is skill involved to be the winner. You can find more information via:

http://www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk/FAQs/Competitions-and-prize-draws/can-i-run-a-prize-competition.aspx

Which links through to a useful summary pdf:

http://www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk/pdf/Running-prize-competitions-and-free-draws-december-2009.pdf

For the avoidance of doubt, there is no need to register with The Gambling Commission if you are running the competition in the way they suggest.
