Heads up, compers! In order to investigate a technical issue, we've had to move some of the older threads from Game Over into a new category called 'Game Over Archives'. It'll be comps from before 2017, so shouldn't have too much impact on your day-to-day Forum experience. Thanks for your patience!

Who regulates online comps?

So. Ive got into doing comps in an attempt to be productive in my spare time. 

Ones like mckinney competitions 

All i can find is the gambling commission. 
And they have a page on free/prize comps

They have a list of very loose rules which are sketchy at best. Its debatable wether most of them really follow them. For istance it says they cant request first class stamps.   Most do. 

Nothing on the limit where most limit to one postal entry??

They cant make it more inconvenient: Some definitely take this !!!!!! on that. 

Their complaints process is: contact the company. Great. Thanks for that. 

Just seems like this is not in any way regulated.  With absolutely no way of stopping all these comps picking their winners, making winners up..??
