Who is the contest or sweepstake open to?

Typical North American contests and sweepstakes are open to residents of the United States and Canada (excluding Quebec). Quebec is almost always excluded due to the additional costs required for legal. Rules must specifically state where you must reside, listing countries or states to be eligible for entry. If controlled substances or gambling is involved the rules must state the minimum age required for entry (usually 18, 19 or 21 depending on the state or province).
