Random Picker

Random Picker is a free tool that lets you randomly draw a name as the winner of a contest, giveaway, promotion, or lottery. It can also be used to randomly select a name or item from any list. The tool supports various types of lists, including names, teams, emails, numbers, songs, usernames, and more.

We've added some settings that allow you to customize your draw according to your preferences.

Number of winners

Using this option, you can select multiple random names simultaneously, up to a maximum of 10 winners per draw. Each name can only be selected once in a single draw. If you want a name to have the chance to win multiple times, select one winner at a time and use the 'Pick Another Name' button to draw again.

Note: When using a wheel of names to draw a name, the number of winners is always set to 1.

Remove winner from list of names after draw

Enabling this filter will remove the winner(s) from the list or wheel after they have been randomly selected for the raffle. This can be especially useful when selecting more than 10 names or drawing names one by one, as it ensures that no name is chosen twice.
