10 FREE ways to choose a random winner
by Di · Published 12/10/2017 · Updated 11/11/2020
If you host prize draws on your website or social media then you need to have a demonstrably fair way of selecting your random winner(s). It’s not OK to choose a winner by scrolling through Instagram comments and stopping on a name you like, and it’s not OK to choose a Facebook comment at random because it makes you chuckle. A random prize draw (or sweepstakes) winner should be chosen fairly from all valid entries – and there are plenty of free tools that can help!
In the UK, all prize promotions should follow the CAP Code, which states:
8.24: Promoters of prize draws must ensure that prizes are awarded in accordance with the laws of chance and, unless winners are selected by a computer process that produces verifiably random results, by an independent person, or under the supervision of an independent person.
If challenged, a promoter must be able to show that a winner was chosen at random. It’s sufficient to provide screenshots, spreadsheets or videos of a computer process that chooses at random – here I’ve shared ten FREE tools that can choose a random winner.
This is the best way to choose your winner if you have access to a numbered list – eg. a spreadsheet of email addresses. On the website, enter the maximum number (eg. if you have 125 entrants, it’s 125) and click to generate a random number between 1 and 125. Then go back to your list/spreadsheet – that number entry is your winner. You can also use their List Randomizer by pasting in your list of names – use this function, and your list will be shown in random order – most people choose the the top name/email address/entry as the winner.
2. Wheel of Names
The Wheel of Names is fun if you want to record or broadcast your random prize draw live. Simply type in your list of names then spin the wheel!
3. Good Luck Fairy
This tool, by Fanpage Karma, is an easy way to choose a random winner for a Facebook prize draw. You’ll need to log in using your Facebook account – then enter the URL (link) of your Facebook giveaway post and you’ll see a selection of options to choose from – likes, comments, reactions, etc. In addition, you can use a search term – for example to choose your random winner from people who commented with the correct answer.
Tweetdraw will give you a random winner for a Twitter retweet promotion. Enter the tweet URL to select a random retweet (you can only link to one tweet using this method). Unfortunately Tweetdraw no longer offers the option to choose a winner from a hashtag.
5. Pick A Winner
If you’re hosting a simple Instagram comment giveaway with less than 150 comments (or a YouTube giveaway with up to 2000), you can choose a random winner without logging in using Pick A Winner (for any more than 150 comments, you will need the paid version). Paste in your link to the post, and choose filters. By default only one comment per user will be entered into the draw – if your giveaway allowed one entry per comment, select Allow Duplicates.
If you have more than 150 comments on your Instagram post, or would like to download an Excel file of all entries, GetComBot is your best bet – although you will need to wait a while for the results. Enter your email address and a link to the Instagram post – a new browser window will open, and after a while you’ll see a list of all the comments. Select options to specify if the winner had to tag 0, 1, 2 or 3 friends. Each comment will be a separate entry in the draw – if it’s only one comment allowed per entrant, select ‘Unique by user’ at the top. When you’re ready, click Get winner!
7. Pick Giveaway Winner
Perfect for bloggers who run comment-to-win giveaways, install this WordPress plug in, and access it via your Tools menu. Select a blog post, and it will choose a random comment and show you their name and email address. You can even tell it to discard multiple entries from the same person.
8. YouTube Random Comment Picker
Use this tool to select a winner from anyone who’s left a comment on a YouTube video. Enter the URL of your video, click Go then ‘Start raffle and pick random winner’.
If you’re hosting a simple prize draw on your blog or website, Gleam is a flexible and clever embeddable widget that will effortlessly choose a random winner for you – simply click the ‘Draw winners…’ button when your giveaway ends.
