Sweepstakes, Contests, and Giveaway Laws in Germany

In Germany both skill contests and games of chance are allowed and these are to be managed in compliance with a set of laws and articles that are fragmented and dispersed within the German legal framework as there is no specific reference legislation.

Although in Germany today, in compliance with the European law, also prize promotions linked to purchase are allowed, these must not, because of their nature or of the typology of the prizes, be such as to exert any psychological pressure on the consumer’s purchase decisions.
