Create Instagram giveaway

If you want to create and run your own Instagram giveaway, you need to think of some requirements and rules for people to join the contest. E.g. You could think of leaving a comment with minimal 2 friends mentioned.

Our tool supports different settings to filter comments and users, to add extra entries or to block people. The settings are explained below.

Minimum amount of @mentions in 1 comment

If you select this option a single comment of a user should have a minimum number of friends mentioned before it's included in the raffle. You can choose up to 10 friends mentioned. By default, it's not required to have a friend mentioned.

Filter comments with the same mentions

This filter will be visible after you select a minimum of 1 or more mentions in one comment. If you enable it, we will filter the comments which are using the same mentions. The comments with the same mentions will not be counted as entries, only the first appearance is counted.

Include comment replies

If you enable this option, comment replies are included in the comments. By default, comment replies are excluded from the contest.

Filter duplicate users

If you enable this filter, we filter multiple comments made by one user. Only one comment per user is counted as entry. A user is defined by a unique user ID. This option gives each user the same chance to win.

Filter comments based on a specific text

If you enable this filter an extra text field will appear where you can enter a specific text, hashtag or answer. A comment should have this text included before it's included in the contest.

Extra entries

You can add extra entries by selecting the option "Add extra entries". You will see a textarea where you can add names of the extra entries. The extra entries are not connected to the comments and will be added to the total amount of comments. You can add each entry by a newline or separated by comma.

Exclude or block users

You can exclude user by selecting the option "Exclude / block users". You will see a textarea where you can add usernames of the users you want to exclude from the contest. You can add each Instagram username by a newline or separated by comma with or without @.

This option can also be useful if you want to exclude previous winners from winning again. You should enter the username and not the name of the person, e.g. @commentpicker instead of Comment Picker.

Remove winner from list after it is chosen

If you want to pick multiple winners without choosing the same winner twice, you should enable this filter. If this option is enabled, we will immediately remove the winner from the list of possible winners after the raffle.

Instagram Comment Picker is free to use without any limits.

There are no limits in maximum number of comments. We chose winners from posts with more than 250,000 comments.

The tool is 100% fair to use for all your Instagram giveaways. We are using a pseudorandom number generator (PRNG) to select a random winner which can't be manipulated. We don't have any influence on the raffle, so please don't ask us to modify the outcome.

We only use the permissions that you allow to get posts and comments of your Instagram account. Without those permissions we can't get the data via the official Facebook API. With those permissions we don't have access to publish anything on your behalf.

Our app has gone through a review by Facebook and has been approved, so your data is safe. We do not store and will not sell any data.

If you are sure that your giveaway post has comments, make sure you have given us the correct permissions and that you have selected the correct giveaway settings and filters. You can also try to logout and login or use the "change or renew" permission button to re-allow permissions and Facebook access to our app. You can always send us a message if you need any help.

Make sure that your AdBlocker, Privacy Badger, virusscanner or Do Not Track browser setting is not blocking the Facebook script which is used for the login process. Also make sure that your browser is not blocking popups in general. Please send us a message if you need any help.
