Customer Question

Dear Sir / Madam, we are planning to start a eSports (online gaming) website that offers cash prizes to the winners. There will be a fee for each player to join each competition and basically I would like the legalities around this. Please can you answer the following questions and provide any further details around any legality's. 1. Do we need any licences to offer cash prizes? 2. Are there any time restrictions to when the winners receive their prize, for example do we have to provide the winner with their prize within 5 days or.... 3. What are the age restrictions for the people taken part? 4. Are their any similar rules for non cash prizes? 5. are there any other requirements we need to meet to enable us to do the above? I look forward to your response. Kind regards ***** *****
