The contest holder has to pay 10% of the total value of the prize to Lotto Quebec. They say that it is to ensure that the contest is real and that winners actually get their prizes. That sounds like a good idea on the surface but…they could just as easily give a refund after proof that the prize was awarded…but we all know that its never going to happen
I have also heard that if a company wants to give away free samples they must pay lotto Quebec as well but I don’t know for sure
By the way
While we are talking about contests being real or fake…
Ya know those face book posts that say just click like and share and you could win a XXXXXX
STOP IT! THEY ARE ALL FAKE!!!
