    So Im talking about giveaways, where you have to like, comment and subscribe to win something. Is there any risk that YouTube will give you a strike? I heard that giveaways are against youtube's rules

    Youtube CAN do anything they want to their site. They reserve the right to take down any video for any reason. In your case though, the chances of a giveaway video being deleted are very low, and unless someone reports it, I doubt YT will take it down.
    Good Luck!

    Technically, then can delete whatever they want. However, I've not heard anything about them targeting giveaway videos.

    I think they use automation to delete videos. It's not possible to control all manually.
    Knowing that you can pass its control.

    I think there is no threat to your video.

    Yeah Youtube can delete whatever they want to my friend.

    But for your question, almost ever popular youtuber I know and watch has done giveaways at some point.

    If an entry is just to like, comment and subscribe, then you're fine. If you start saying "complete this offer for me to enter" then that's a different story.
