Can I give additional entries in the prize draw for referring friends?

You can do two different things with the Refer a Friend system: 1) Only the participants that have reached a minimum number of referred friends enter in the final prize draw. 2) Run a random draw among all participants but give additional entries in the draw per referred friend. You can, for example, give 1 additional entry per referred friend.
