What is Instagram Comment Picker?
Instagram Comment Picker is a free tool to pick a random winner for an Instagram giveaway, contest, sweepstake or promotion. The giveaway winner picker retrieves all comments from the selected Instagram posts or videos, filter comments based on your selected giveaway settings and chooses one or multiple winners at random.

Create Instagram giveaway
If you want to host and create an 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.
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.
Enable this option if you want to exclude users from winning. 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 with or without @.
This option is very useful if you want to exclude previous winners from winning again or block spam accounts. 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 Giveaway Picker Wheel
Premium users are able to select Wheel of Names animation in the raffle settings. If this option is selected, all entries are displayed in a wheel which you can spin to select a winner for your Instagram giveaway. You are able to customize the wheel colors, fonts, lettertype and logo on the wheel.
