About the Raffle Factory
Raffle Factory is a full Lottery/Raffle Extension for Joomla - you can build a turnkey site similar to rafflecreator.com just in few clicks. Using Joomla as the content management system, our extension can work with any available template and in any type of hosting.
Webmasters can configure the way the extension looks using the integrated templating system with ease and without any php knowledge. There is no need for the webmaster to change the code of the extension, and this will ensure a 100% upward compatibility with our future releases. The Extension Package you get will include ALL PHP SOURCES (nothing encrypted) along with the full documentation.
Setting up a turnkey Raffle Website was never easier. Organize your own raffles on your website, or allow others to come and post raffles and charge a comission for every ticket sold.
Tickets can be sold at any price with limited or no costs related to the actual raffling process, compared to real life raffles or lotteries.
The tickets can be chosen at random by the script, or the raffler can pick the winning ticket from a list. If chosen manually, no details are shown related to the ticket other than the number until the raffle closes, to prevent fraud.
The Raffle owner can set a price for each ticket, set a number of available tickets and also a ticket limit for each user.Using a Reserve Price (optional), the Raffle poster can choose to have a minimum amount of tickets sold in order to validate the raffle. This ensures that you avoid making losses on expensive products like Cars or Technology Gadgets.
