Sweepstakes, Contests, and Giveaway Laws in Greece

In Greece, both games of Chance and contests of Skill are allowed.

Although, in principle, gifts with purchase and, in particular, Loyalty campaigns are allowed by the regulations, these can be risky business practices for the promoter as they are particularly exposed to checks by the local authorities that tend to consider them forms of unfair competition.
