What prizes are prohibited?
As a giveaway platform designed for gamers, by gamers, we do our very best to ensure that prize offerings are in line with this and are somewhat "gaming" in nature. While this includes a wide range of items (both physical and digital), and there can often be room for exceptions, there are some items which are strictly prohibited as prizes on Surf Giveaways.
Prohibited Prizes —
Inappropriate/Mature Content - Prize(s) which are considered mature, x-rated, adult, or otherwise inappropriate are strictly prohibited and may result in removal of giveaways or an account ban.
Stream/Channel Specific Items - We disallow giveaways that rely strictly on prizing that is only of use within a specific stream/channel. These include items such as subscriptions, in-channel currency, Streamloots, etc.
One consideration here is; "Does my prize hold any real-world value for the winner and can it be used outside your channel?". We encourage all hosts to ensure that their prizing hold a tangible value to the potential winner.
Exchange of Accounts - Your prize must not be a personally owned account which you intend to transfer to the winner e.g. Instagram account.
Prize Value - Hosts must not offer prizes which exceed $5,000 USD in total (combined) prize cash value.
If you are unsure about the allowance of a particular prize, please be sure to submit a Support Request with your concern before publishing your giveaway and we'd be happy to review it.
