Selecting a Winner

If your raffle is online, the raffle manager can “tell” the system to select a winner after the draw date.  This is done on the raffle dashboard under the Winners tab.  You will click on “Award Prize” and then our system will select a random winner for you from all sales entered, both online sales and cash sales. If you have more than 1 prize, you would select one winner at a time until all prizes have been awarded.  When you do this, Raffle River updates your public raffle page with that information automatically.

If your raffle is for physical ticket sales, Raffle River will not select the winner for you.

If you are having online sales and want to draw the winner yourself, you can do that by simply not telling our system to select that winner for you.  Then you will need to find a way to get all of the buyers’ names in the drawing you do.  The raffle manager will be able to export a spreadsheet of all customers for this purpose if necessary.
