    [Update: I'm currently in the process of recoding this from the ground up. In the end you'll be able to use a shortcode to display the lottery. Have more ways to enter, etc. Plus more cool options I'll keep secret for now. It will be pretty sweet!]

    UPDATE

    I’m in the final design and tweak stage. It looks nothing like the screenshots in the original post.

    It’s very feature rich and I tested it meticulously as well.

    I’m very proud of it.

    It will be a plugin that you install, set your settings in the admin and your good to go. This was was to large for just a CubePoints module :)

    You can use the shortcode [lottery1] to display it on any page. Which support with up to 5 lotteries running at once.

    Hope to have it done later this week.

    Ok, it is COMPLETE! Here are the main features.

    • Social Entries: You can now EARN points for sharing the giveaway on Facebook, Google+ & Twitter! After you complete each entry and refresh there will be a icon showing your entry is successful.
    • Stats: You can see how many point entries you have left. How many possible entries you have left, such as social entries. Plus your chance of winning. This is all displayed in a nice graph which changes color based on how many entries you have left to do or your chance of winning. Try to get them all green!
    • Video Entries: We can now manually add video entries for a member right into the lottery logs!
    • All Entries: Your entries into the lottery are now highlighted in the logs so you can easily see all your entries. Plus the logs are much more detailed. They show who entered the lottery, if they spent or earned points and the entry type.
    • Twitter Follow & Google +1: You can earn points for following us on Twitter and +1 PS3Blog.net itself on Google. When you enter your first lottery from this point forward you will be asked to do those steps. If you already follow or +1 us you’ll be required to un-follow and remove the +1 on Google. Then refresh and follow and +1 us again on the lottery page. Reason for this is so we can get you some points for a follow/+1 but also so you never have to complete that step ever again on any lottery!
    • Bonus URL Entry: We have the option to share a unique link with you in the Live Chat, Twitter, Facebook Fan Page, YouTube Channel, etc. Which will get you a bonus entry into the lottery and earn some points for it. BUT be quick, because only the first 10 that click it will get that bonus entry!
    • Slick new tab interface
    • Completely new look & functions
    • Message boxes the help instruct you on how to complete entries and other information.

    I need to do some more clean up in the admin area. Before I release this to the public.

    this is fantastic! But what’s the rules for deciding the winner? If the rules not transparent, some users will be disappointed after several failure. If allow each entry to choose a number, then, it’s gonna be an exciting moment when it’s time to announce the winner(automatically).

    Added another feature to it this morning! Hot off the coding press. If your a lottery admin you can pick winner(s) at random right from the lottery logs on the front end!

    @imjscn No, they can’t pick a lottery number. They are just put into the logs of entries which the lottery admin picks at random by the click of a button.

    I usually screen record when I pick winner to show my members how it’s done.

    @xberserker is there a way to earn points for doing the following (below) thru cubepoints? Not thru the lottery/gambling system module but just via the cubepoints plugin?

    Social Entries: You can now EARN points for sharing the giveaway on Facebook, Google+ & Twitter! After you complete each entry and refresh there will be a icon showing your entry is successful.

    Twitter Follow & Google +1: You can earn points for following us on Twitter and +1…

    That is, a member getting points for sharing a link on twitter, for example. Let me know if my question isn’t clear and I’ll try to clarify.

    Thanks

    @synaptic not sure what you mean. I realize that’s his website but I was hoping to get an answer here since it seems he is active on this board as well. thanks

    Yes, new link is this – http://store.slyspyder.com/

    @synaptic In reply to your question. Users get a points for sharing a link on twitter, facebook via like & comment, etc. This only happens on the giveaway page where the shortcode is.

    There is a included stand alone shortcode you can put in any page/post/widget. For letting your users earn points for liking your Facebook Page or following you on Twitter.

    Later I hope to have sharing a link on Facebook, Twitter, etc. on any post/page for points. But that’s not complete yet.
