If you're ever in a spot where you need to pick names at random, this Quick Draw template is a quick and easy way to pick names fairly. Say you've got a list of names and need to select one for a giveaway, raffle or perhaps just a random bet between friends.

You can either paste in the list of names, or upload a CSV file with the names you wish to draw randomly from.

Our Quick Draw interface is public-facing which means you can record the draw and share it on social media for increased credibility. You can also customise the background with colours, gradients or images to match with your branding!

No matter what kind of event or contest you have lined up, this template saves the day by taking off all pressure tied with making arbitrary picks - giving each name its due shot at winning.

Advanced Features

Set Custom Entry Worth for Each Name

You can set a custom entry worth for each of the names in your entrant's list. For example, an entry worth might be higher if an entrant has performed more actions to participate in your campaign. This essentially gives the entrant a higher chance of winning, since their name has a higher weightage during the random draw.

To customise the entry worth for each entrant, you have to define the column title as name, entries, followed by the entry worth for each entrant like this:
