A Viral Sweepstakes is an excellent way to
generate traffic and significantly increase registrations. A Viral Sweepstakes
can be incorporated into any other type of online sweepstakes (such as a
standard sweepstakes or instant win), and rewards visitors for inviting their
friends to play.
After entering the sweepstakes, consumers are offered more chances to win by
telling their friends about the sweepstakes. Consumers can automatically share
the sweepstakes on their favorite social network (such as Twitter or Facebook)
or send an email inviting their friends to enter the sweepstakes. By giving
consumers more chances to win, they are provided a powerful incentive to invite
friends and associates to enter.

how best to proceed. Courts have upheld that decisions by third party independent
judges are binding and this limits your entrants from suing if a problem occurs.
