Entering a competition with points

Q: I did a survey and got 50 points and I took 1 point to join a competition. So if I win I will get prize, is that halaal? Many will participate but only few will be winners and the losers will get nothing.

A: Yes, provided there is no entrance fee for the competition.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
