A Raffle is a competition in which people buy numbered tickets. Originating in southern Italy, it is a popular game in numerous countries and is often held to raise funds for a specific event, charity, or occasion.
The raffle involves many people buying tickets for a chance to win a certain prize or prizes. At a set date, the winners are drawn from a bucket containing a copy of every number or a tombola (from Italian: tombola ['to:mbola]). The ticket is then checked against a collection of prizes with numbers attached to them.
Raffle Factory is our solution to online raffles. 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.
Raffle Factory also features a powerful Templating engine and custom fields system that allows webmasters to customize the extension according to their needs without any actual programming knowledge.
