Random Drawing Generator

A random drawing generator could refer to 2 different online tools with different purposes. The word drawing has two different meanings in English language.

  • Drawing can refer to: "the selection of a winner or winners in a lottery or raffle".
  • Drawing can also mean: "a picture or diagram made with a pencil, pen, or crayon rather than paint, especially one drawn in monochrome".

Our tool is used for the first one to select a random winner in a raffle, which is also known as a Random Name Drawing Generator. We might release a Random Drawing (Idea) Generator as well.

Random Picker

Random Picker is a free tool to draw a random name as winner for a contest, giveaway, promotion or lottery. It can also be used to just pick a random name or item from a list. The tool support names, teams, emails, numbers, songs, usernames and every other list of items you need.

We created a few settings to customize your draw.

Number of winners

With this option you can select multiple random names at the same time. You can select up to 10 winners for each draw. A name can never be drawn multiple times in one draw. If you want to make it possible for a name to win multiple times, you should pick 1 winner at the time and use the pick another name button to draw multiple times.

Note: Number of winners is always set to 1 when using a wheel of names to draw a name.

Remove winner from list of names after draw

If you enable this filter, the tool will remove the winner(s) from the list of names or wheel after it's randomly selected as winner of the raffle. This can be useful when you are picking more than 10 names or drawing names one by one and don't want a name to be chosen twice.
