The Importance of Anti-Cheating Measures in Drawings

Without adequate anti-cheating measures, the integrity of the drawing can be compromised, leading to distrust and dissatisfaction among participants. addresses these concerns with a suite of anti-fraud controls designed to prevent manipulation and ensure fairness. Anti-Fraud Measures

✍️ Mandatory Sign-Up

Unlike many other services that allow anonymous users to conduct drawings, requires every organizer to sign up and validate their account. This mandatory sign-up process prevents organizers with bad intentions from repeating the drawing until they get their preferred winner. By providing basic information and validating the account, organizers ensure that every drawing is controlled and supervised by the system.

✅ Pre-Drawing Summary Check

Before conducting the final drawing, organizers can review a summary to ensure that all entries, prizes, and mechanics are in place. This step helps prevent any oversights or missing elements, ensuring that the drawing proceeds smoothly.

🔐 Test Drawings and Project Lock

Organizers can conduct several test drawings to familiarize themselves with the system and demonstrate its fairness to participants. Once everything is ready, the final drawing is conducted, and the project is locked to prevent any further changes. This lock ensures that the results are final and tamper-proof.

🔎 Public Records

After the final drawing, a public record is generated for each project. This online page provides all important details about the drawing. Participants can check if their entries were included, and the public record helps detect any suspicious patterns, such as duplicate entries.

📋 List of Participants

For each drawing, participants can view an anonymized list of all entries. This ensures privacy while allowing you to see the list’s structure, the number of duplicate entries, weights, and other important information.

💽 Data Retention for Deleted and Archived Projects

Projects and their data cannot be deleted immediately by an organizer. When a project is flagged as deleted, the system retains the data for a specific period. This ensures that the data remains available for comparison with live projects, maintaining transparency and allowing participants to verify the fairness of the drawings. The data of all projects are stored on our servers for a defined period of time (see our data retention policy). After this period, they are moved to the archive, so it’s not available online, but it is still possible to check the results and the selection process.

🛑 Limits on projects

Number of projects RandomPicker imposes daily limits on the number of projects that organizers can create to decrease the possibilities of cheating the system. Typically, organizers are allowed to create between 5 to 50 projects per day, depending on their subscription plan and usage patterns. These limits help maintain a fair and secure environment by preventing abuse and ensuring that the integrity of the random drawing process is upheld. However, RandomPicker recognizes that some users may have special needs. For long-term customers or in cases where a legitimate need is explained, the company is open to increasing these limits over time. This flexibility ensures that the platform can accommodate the growing and varying needs of its users while maintaining a fair and balanced system for all.

📂 List of Organizer’s Recent Drawings

Each public record includes a list of the organizer’s recent drawings from the last 30 days. This transparency allows participants to verify that the organizer hasn’t conducted the same drawing multiple times, enhancing trust in the process.

👨‍💻 Human Checks randomly checks some projects to prevent cheating. Projects or accounts reported as suspicious by participants are also inspected. The team actively cooperates with reporters to build trust within the community.

👨‍💼 Third-Party Audits

The service and selection procedure are reviewed by an independent auditor who checks the randomness of results and inspects the code for winner selection. This third-party audit adds an extra layer of credibility to the platform.

🏷️ Account Scoring

Each account has an individual internal reliability score based on factors such as profile completion, past activities and communication, long-term usage, and media presence. Suspicious behavior and unfinished or duplicate projects negatively affect the score. The team investigates any suspicious events and contacts the organizer to clarify any doubts. Accounts found to be cheating are suspended.

🗄️ Activity Logs

Activity logs are an essential component of the RandomPicker system, ensuring that each drawing is recorded and stored for future reference and audit purposes. These logs capture all important events of the drawing process. The logs are securely stored and can be accessed by authorized personnel, offering a secure mechanism to resolve disputes and confirm the fairness of the process.

From a Participant’s Perspective: Ensuring the Fairness of a Raffle

As a raffle participant, you can take the following steps to ensure that everything is conducted fairly:

💡 Check the Published Results

Compare the results published by the organizer with the RandomPicker drawing protocol (available online). Both should present the same results. If the organizer claims to have used for the winner selection but hasn’t published the link to the RandomPicker public record, ask the organizer to provide it.

💡 Review the Public Record

In the public record, you will find the number of entries, date and time of the drawing, winners, and their prizes. This record also details the mechanisms for handling entries, such as basic selection, weighted entries, and preferred prizes.

💡 Analyze the Entry List Structure

Check for any duplicates and verify if the raffle rules allowed them. Look for patterns in the duplicates. Do the same for weighted entries, if applicable. Assess whether the number of duplicate entries or weight values make sense.

💡 Verify the Organizer’s History

Examine the organizer’s history of previous drawings. RandomPicker allows you to view a list of recent drawings conducted by the organizer, including deleted projects. Compare these projects and look for any with the same name and setup (prizes, number of entries, etc.). If there are multiple duplicate projects, ask the organizer for clarification. While a single duplicate might be a test, multiple duplicates could be suspicious.

💡 Understand Randomness

Remember that randomness can sometimes produce unexpected results, such as the same winners appearing twice in a row or a participant with a single ticket winning a grand prize over those with many tickets. This is part of the randomness and luck inherent in raffles.

💡 Communicate with the Organizer

If you have any concerns about the drawing, share them with the organizer and allow them to address your questions. Transparency is the key to trust.

💡 Reach Out to RandomPicker

If you still have doubts about the drawing, you can share your concerns with RandomPicker. The platform is designed to support both organizers who aim to bring transparency and trust to their drawings, and participants who want to ensure they are part of a fair and unbiased process.

By following these steps, you can help ensure the integrity and fairness of the raffle you are participating in.

Examples of How Organizers Have Tried to Cheat the System

First and foremost, it’s important to note that cheating attempts are very rare in Our users want to show transparency in their sweepstakes and do not intend to cheat. However, we have detected and eliminated multiple fraud attempts. Here are some examples:

⚠️ Many Deleted Projects

An organizer wanted to ensure a specific participant won out of several hundred participants. To do this, they created multiple projects, conducted drawings, and then deleted the projects, repeating the process many many times. We detected these fraud attempts from the list of deleted projects. Participants can review a list of all the organizer’s projects from the 30 days leading up to the specific drawing, including any deleted projects.

⚠️ Many Deleted Accounts

Another organizer created multiple accounts and deleted each one after conducting a drawing, hoping the system would not detect this behavior. Unfortunately for them, every account deletion is monitored by the system. Despite their efforts, they were caught and blocked.

⚠️ Duplicate Entries

Some organizers added the preferred winner to the list so many times that their share was 99% of the entry pool. This gave the preferred winner a 99% chance of winning. The fraud was easily discovered using the anonymized list of entries.

It’s important to note that duplicates can be a legitimate part of the promotion mechanism (e.g., more entries for higher activity). When doubts arise, the organizer should be able to explain a high number of duplicates. We encourage participants to ask raffle organizers for clarification, if they are not sure.

⚠️ High Weights for a Specific Entry

Similar to duplicate entries, assigning an extremely high weight to one participant can raise questions about the raffle’s fairness. While weighting is often used to differentiate between participants with high and low activity/purchases, the anonymized list of entries can uncover fraudulent attempts.
Again, the presence of weights is legitimate in most cases; but any extremely unusual weighting should be explained by the organizer.

Commitment to Transparency

We are dedicated to maintaining transparency and fairness in all sweepstakes and raffle activities. To further this commitment, we will continue to publish more examples of detected fraud attempts and how to identify them. By sharing these insights, we aim to educate our users and help them understand the importance of maintaining integrity in their promotional activities. Stay tuned for more updates and examples in the future.
