Wheel of Names credits

We would like to thank Douglas McKechie for creating the spinning prize wheel and making it open source so we can use the spinning wheel on our website. If you want to create your own spinning wheel with JavaScript, please checkout his website dougTesting.net.

Wheel picker options

We create a few options for the wheel picker in the first release, but we will create more features to customize your wheel picker with colors and more.

Split names by space

By default the list of names are split by a newline or comma, but sometimes you just want to add quickly names by adding a space in between. Selecting the split by space option will make this work.

Filter duplicate names

By default we don't filter duplicate names from the spinning wheel, but we could imagine that sometimes when using a larger list of names you could add a duplicate name by mistake. Enabling this filter will prevent having duplicate names in the wheel of names.

Remove name from wheel of names after draw

If you are planning to pick multiple names with the wheel picker and you want to prevent a name to be chosen twice, you can choose to remove the name from wheel after the wheel spin. If this option is selected and you spin the wheel again, the previous winner will be removed from the wheel of names.
