Duck Derby, Gopher Drop, Penguin Drop, etc.
Definition: A raffle lottery in which participants buy a numbered ticket that corresponds to a numbered object (e.g. toy duck, toy gopher, toy penguin). Winners are determined by the order in which the objects achieve the goal. Some examples:
toy ducks are dumped into a river or other moving body of water. Winners are determined by the order in which the ducks cross the finish line;
toy gophers or penguins are dropped onto a target from a flying pass (usually a hot air balloon). Winners are determined by the order in which each approaches the centre of the target;
SLGA requires assurance that crowd control will be sufficient to ensure that those attending the event cannot interfere with the outcome.
Note: Due to the unusual nature of this type of lottery, SLGA requires complete details concerning the control of ticket sales and the method of determining the winner(s) at the end of the race or event.
Notice: Ticket sales on the Internet will not be approved or allowed, but you may use the Internet to advertise.
