Marden-Kane develops online, on-package, in-store, social, and mobile sweepstakes. Our online sweepstakes range from simple websites to more robust Instant Win Games. As a component of the online sweepstakes offering, Marden-Kane hosts and manages the microsite and promotion database. We provide clients with daily reports of website traffic and unique registrations throughout the promotion period. For an in-store or on-package sweepstakes, we provide security services for instant win game seeding, code generation and printing of scratch-off cards and tearpad entries, as well as counting and storing ballot boxes.

Registration and Bonding Services
If the total prize value of a Sweepstakes exceeds $5,000 Marden-Kane will, at the client’s request, register the promotion in those US states where registration is needed. Marden-Kane will also procure and file surety bonds in states where it is required. Marden-Kane also has the ability to file registrations/bonds/tax fees in foreign countries such as with the Regie in Quebec, Mexico, etc.

Sweepstakes Drawings and Winner Notifications
Winners of individual sweepstakes are selected in accordance with the official rules. Several methods are used to conduct random drawings from eligible entries received. In the case of online sweepstakes, our application is used to determine the winning entry and alternates. We notify winners by email, telephone, social messaging, and/or mail as necessary to reach the potential winner within the time frame called for in the fulfillment plan and in accordance with the official rules. The prize value and the nature of the specific prize determine the level of documentation (such as travel releases, affidavits of eligibility and publicity releases) that must be collected from the potential winner.
