All legal consultations to date confirm that Avazoo
can legally operate and market the Billion Dollar
Raffle around the world subject to correct licensing and
adherence to legislation in each territory.
“We are not able to sell tickets
in every country because of gambling laws and some
countries like America specifically prohibits any form
of gambling over the internet”
“This presented our technical team
with a challenge to ensure that people not eligible to
participate are unable to purchase a ticket while making
it simple for those who can. It has been a major
undertaking but we have a great team and with the help
of technology they have been
able to solve all of those issues.”
In the USA residents are forbidden to gamble via the
internet and so the online sale of tickets will be
blocked to anyone from the USA or its territories. It is
important to understand that the US market is not
critical to the success of the raffle and will be
excluded from the marketing for the first Billion Dollar
Avazoo, expects the world’s biggest cash payout
to attract unparalleled media coverage from around the
world television, print, billboards, internet and all
other available media which will also carry the names of
their sponsors and advertising partners. They promise
that it will be a campaign that reaches every household
in dozens of countries on all continents and that their
planned budget will make it one of the world’s most
extensive marketing campaigns ever.
Avazoo, Corporation has devised the world’s
largest prize draw event known as the Billion Dollar
Raffle in which one lucky winner will win one billion US
dollars, one in three ticket holders will win a cash
prize as well as generate hundreds of millions of
dollars for the achievement of our Philanthropic Goals,
with a 65% target donation of revenue.
We firmly believe the Billion Dollar Raffle will capture
the imagination of millions of people around the world
and has the potential to become the most successful
philanthropic event in history.

There are 76,000 grant making Foundations in the US, who
distributed $45.7 billion in grants in 2010,and
Avazoo is committed to working with these
established groups to provide long term sustainability
to projects, while also incubating new projects and
supporting educational programs to raise the caliber and
professionalism of the non-profit world.
Avazoo, is also committed to exploring revenue
sharing ticket sales with local and international
foundations, and it is expected that the huge buzz and
cloud generated by the first Billion Dollar Raffle
represents a major direct fund raising opportunity for
non-profits. Especially at a time from tradition funding
methods are failing to meet the current operating
expenses of many in the non-profit world.
Avazoo, will be actively engaging in sponsorship
and underwriting deals with top brands and companies
and we expect that this will lead to a substantial
increase in Global Corporate spending in Philanthropy.
This will be especially encouraged by the media exposure
