The Gambling Act defines and differentiates lotteries, betting (which can include certain prize competitions) and gaming (that is playing a game of chance for a prize). Skill competitions and free prize draws remain outside the Gambling Act, and for the avoidance of doubt, the Pandemic Challenge is a skill competition, and does not fall within the definition of a lottery, betting or gaming.

The Pandemic Challenge has been established solely as a tool to evaluate and conduit excellent ideas, in relation to the Covid 19 crisis.

The Laws of England and Wales apply to the Pandemic Challenge.
