I am from Canada, and I believe I read it somewhere that you can't legally start a lottery without the guvernmnet accepting it or some shit. And something about 'giving people cash' But okay... question... and when you tell me something, I won't take it as legal advice, so we're clear. But what if lets say... 10 people pitch in $10, and the prize worth $100. $50 gift cerftificate, and a $50 shirt... so then the names are put in a hat, and the names whos gets chosen gets the prize? Is that legal? What if we do it on a large scale that is around $10,000? is that stil fine? what do you think?
