Cool Tabs’ applications allow you to select a random instant winner during each stage of your competition. Winners are picked automatically with Instant Win and the participants in your competition will know immediately whether or not they have won and will not have to wait for a specific date and time for the results to be announced. The most important thing when creating an Instant Win competition is to remember is that there will be one winner per stage and that you therefore need to create as many stages as instant winners you want to have.

How does it work?



How I can create an Instant Win competition?

The Instant Win option is available for our Cool Promo and Cool Promo White Label applications. To add it to your campaign, just go to the Competition stages and winners section of a promotion creation form:

  • Setting up the different stages in your competition: In the first part of this section, you need to indicate how many times the same user can participate in your campaign. Normally, if you want to use Instant Win, you will also want there to be several stages within your competition, but this does not mean that you can’t also use it for a competition without stages. The only thing that you need to be aware of is that there will be one Instant Winner per stage and if the competition does not have stages, there will be one winner for the whole competition. If you want to set up different stages, you should choose ‘Users can enter 1 or more times in the period of time (stages) defined’ and then indicate how many hours each stage is to last and the number of times that the same user can take part in each stage. You also need to mark ‘Winners will be chosen for each stage of the competition’, if you want it to select an Instant Winner for each stage.

Competition stages and winners

  • Automatic random selection of winners + Instant Win: In the next part of the ‘Competition stages and winners’ section, you need to mark the ‘Automatic random selection of winners’ option, which will reveal several further fields: Simply choose Instant Win and whether you want the list of winners to be public or not.

Make copies of Instant Wins

If you want to assign multiple prizes, you can make all the copies you need of any Instant Wins, without having create each one by hand. You can choose one of your campaign periods or any date range. You need to choose how many copies you want, and we will create those Instant Wins with the winners date randomly chosen. 

To make copies of different awards, go to 'Instant Win' section and click on the ‘Make copies' icon.

Instant Win campaign with a quiz by points or categories

You can link your Instant Win campaign either with a quiz by points or by categories.  

What does this link mean? When you select the winners of the competition, this will allow you select them from those who have obtained X score (quiz by points), for example, among those participants who have obtained 5 or more points. Also you can select Instant Win winners among participants who have, for example, marked X right answer/s (quiz by categories).   

In the 'Instant Wins configuration' section, you can define how many right answers they must obtain or what category of answers must be selected the most to win this Instant Win.
