What is a tipping competition?
If entry is free and the total prize pool is greater than $10,000 then your competition MUST be conducted as Trade Promotion Lottery and adhere to these guidelines.
Interestingly, WA maintains that a tipping competition is a game of skill and therefore cannot be a lottery, so a chance element may need to be included. If the total prize pool is less than $10,000 the competition is a 'tipping competition' and must adhere to these guidelines.
