WIN MAY OPEN MARKET UP
Graham, NC – After two-days of trial, a jury found that a Burlington PreReveal sweepstakes cafe does not violate North Carolina’s sweepstakes or gambling laws.The jury deliberated for less than an hour Wednesday afternoon before reaching verdicts on multiple issues, finding
that PreReveal sweepstakes are in compliance with state laws regarding electronic sweepstakes.
The civil complaint was brought against Burlington Police Chief Jeffrey Smythe in his capacity as police chief after previous Chief Mike Williams sent a letter to all sweepstakes businesses in March 2013 threatening legal action if they didn’t close.
Today’s verdict clearly shows that the jury agreed that the PreReveal sweepstakes software and business model
designed by PreReveal.com are legal and suggest the company should be able to reopen and operate,.
Whether or not the City of Burlington will appeal the case is unknown. Charles Bateman Jr., who represented Smythe and the city, said he would have to confer with the Burlington City Council before a decision is reached.
Special Superior Court Judge Robinson Hassell of Guilford County is expected to enter judgments in the case at a later date.
Casey Rooks, a spokesperson for PreReveal.com goes on to say “We have won multiple cases with PreReveal Sweepstakes and PreReveal Skill Games across the state and dozens of other places around the country, we’ve claimed from the beginning that our games stand up to the test and today we proved it again”
