Random Prizes.

Random Prizes.

Postby Hairyloon » Fri Feb 17, 2017 6:56 pm

If you buy something, when you don't know what you are going to get, what laws are applicable? For example those machines you see which dispense a random plastic ball with something inside it.
Is there a requirement to give an idea of what prizes are likely? If so, how thorough does it need to be?

None at all? Even so, if some idea is given, then surely that must not be a misleading idea?

In case of misunderstanding, I was not meaning those kind of machines. I know there are different rules where there is any element of skill.

my point is that the majority of people who play those things think it's entirely down to their skill when in fact the game cheats. Seems legal though, which i find odd.
