Raffle Board
Current version: 1.8

Want a good way to raise money for a charity or organization? How about a way that's fun for everyone and easy to do? The Raffle Board from Lastat Productions gives you an easy, no lag way to do just that. The Raffle Board comes with loads of customizable options such as: giving away one free gift upon entering, giving a notecard and/or customizable message to avatars when they click the Raffle Board. With the customizable pay and free mode, you have the ability to set a raffle limit per avatar so you can shoot for a specific goal of $$ earnings, or just allow avatars to join as many times as they want. Avatars have four pay options based on your price per entry so they can enter up to 4 times at once. If you have set a raffle per avatar limit and they go over that limit, the script will automatically message the avatar and refund them their money. You can even set a free raffle giveaway so they receive a free entry when purchasing a set amount of entries.

The Raffle Board from Lastat Productions also gives you the ability to give a winning item or even a cash prize... or BOTH! If you decide to add or remove the winning prize, or change the cash prize amount during an ongoing contest, NO problem!! Just change them how you like, re-load the new updated settings, and the time keeps on ticking!! All you need to do to set the desired end date and end time (SLT) in the config notecard, and the script does the math to display the countdown in days, hours, minutes, and seconds on the front display. If you decide you would like to extend the completion time, you can do so at ANY time!! You can even force the board if you decide you don't want to wait until the previously declared end time.

What if you have multiple "HOT" spots on one sim where the traffic is really high you wonder? Well, then rez the Extra Raffle Board (included in the boards contents absolutely FREE) at these locations and/or anywhere else in the sim and ANYONE can join the same ongoing raffle from ANYWHERE in the SIM!! You can even add your very own advertisement texture to the front display, and choose from up to 9 different background colors so it matches ANY location!! The Raffle Board from Lastat Productions gives you an endless amount of options!!

    ** NOTES **
  • * The Raffle Board has been tested with up to 200 entries but probably will not support much more than that due to SL limitations with script memory. Set price and limit accordingly
  • * The Raffle Board must be granted debit permissions so it can give refunds if you have set the raffle limit
  • * Lastat Productions HIGHLY recommends you DO NOT use the "Reset" option if a raffle is ongoing
  • * Do NOT un-link the Raffle Board, that will break it if you don't link it back together in a certain order
