Saint George, UT asked in Consumer Law for Utah

Q: If you buy a companies calendar, you are entered to win a weekly giveaway for that year. is this legal? Why or why not?

Imagine a company is selling calendars. But calendars that have a weekly giveaway. So if you buy the calendar, you are entered each week into a randomly selected giveaway for the prize. Basically you pay $25 dollars for a calendar and that enters you to win a giveaway/raffle each week for a prize. I know there is a lot of laws with lottery, raffle, and sweepstakes so I am just curious if this is completely legal? why or why not?

A: This is not a basic question. The test for that is primarily whether it would require research on an attorney's part. It will require a lot of time on an attorney's part in my opinion, and what you need is specifically tailored legal advice about this.
