Using Reviews as entrance for a Raffle

Is it against Google policy for a business to offer entries into a raffle in exchange for reviews?  If so, what do they do about it?  A local business has generated hundreds of reviews in a short period, due to the raffle incentive.  I think this is dishonest as it does not paint an accurate picture of the business.
