    Roulette / Slot Machine / Win Prize - Functionality

    Asked by Vitor  on July 05, 2016 at 10:30 AM

    Hi,

    I was wondering if there is any functionality in which a visitor could 'play a game' and win something.

    The idea is that we are going to be producing flyers to encourage visitors to visit our website and see if they are lucky enough to win a free prize. The prize could be drawn in the same was a slot machine. Or maybe an automatic number generator in which, if added to their birthday date or something like that, and they score a certain number of points, they would win. 

    Any suggestions to achieve a similar 'game' or 'try your luck' would be very useful.

    Thanks 

    Victor

    Unfortunately, we don't have this feature. You can do the following as a workaround:

    1. Create a form that would ask visitors to submit their personal information such as the name, address, contact number. If you need to give visitors a unique ID that would serve as their ticket number, you can use any of the following widgets:

    http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/autoincrement

    http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/random_value_generator

    2. Assuming that you already have the submissions from your site visitors and is ready to draw the winner(s). You can use any of the following websites to draw the winner(s):

    http://www.miniwebtool.com/random-name-picker/

    https://www.randompicker.com/

    3. Once you have the result, you can publish a blog post to your website listing the winner(s) and adding instructions on how they can claim their prize.
