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 users

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.

Example of an Instagram Giveaway Winner Picker Wheel:

Instagram Comment Picker is free to use for selecting a winner for an Instagram giveaway with up to 500 comments.

Upgrade to Premium to get unlimited comments and access to an ad-free website with extra features and filters, like Multi-post, spinning an Instagram giveaway wheel and add extra entries and mentions.

The Instagram Comment Picker has a limit of 500 comments for free users and offers unlimited comments for Premium users.

The Instagram Comment Picker 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 and comments are enabled, 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 log out and login or use the "change or renew" permission button to re-allow permissions and access to our app. You can always send us a message if you need any help.

Currently, ourInstagram Comment Picker is able to support Instagram Collab Posts only for users who are the original creators of the post. This is primarily due to the restrictions imposed by the Instagram API, which allows only the creators to access Collab Post and retrieve the comments from it. If you are a collaborator and not the creator, our tool will be unable to fetch comments from Collab Posts.

Make sure that no AdBlocker, Privacy Badger, virusscanner or Do Not Track browser setting is blocking the Facebook script which is used for the login process. Also make sure that your browser is not blocking pop-ups for our website. Please send us a message via Facebook or Instagram if you need any help.
