STEP 1. Basic Info
You can change the (A) “Campaign Name” and (B) “Description, “or leave it as-is while going through this lesson. You will want to change it when you create your actual scratch-off game. (C) Select Scratch & Win” from drop down menu. (D) Set your “Timezone” in the dropdown menu. This is important because it will tie-in with your expiration date(s).
STEP 2. - Prize
This campaign has (5) five prizes, one in each row. To edit a prize or upload a prize image click, it’s blue pencil icon in the last column “I.” To turn a prize off, click its blue toggle button in column “H.” To trash a prize, click the trash can icon in the column “I.”
How to edit your prize text or upload a prize image
To edit a prize, click its blue pencil icon in the last column “I” and shown above. This new window to make prize edits will display.
“A” is for a prize headline text that will be displayed on the screen after the scratch-off reveal. There is a max of 14 characters to fit in this row.
“B” is for the second row of headline text if you want, otherwise leave it blank. There is a max of 14 characters to fit in this row.
“C” – This option is for using a prize image instead of text. Click “Choose File” to upload from your computer or mobile device.
All prize images need to at the same size. Square is best. And the same if you are making a scratch-off pad as an image.
By default, a scratch-off pad with “Scratch Here” will automatically display above prize images of prizes set in text.
“D” – Name your prize image.
“E” – Type in the total number to be awarded of this specific prize. This field needs to be filled-in whether the award is in text or an image.
Once the total prize number is reached, Priiize will shut it off automatically. If you want to add more of that prize over the allotment, change the amount in this field to the higher new number you wish to award. See note *Prize totals are cumulative.
After you have finished, click “Update” to save your changes.
"E" - Important note
*Prize totals are cumulative. – For scratch-off games where you want to give away a certain prize allotment over multiple periods, you need to add the number of prizes to the previous period’s figure of awards.
For example, if you wanted to give away (10) ten “30% Off Coupons” per week over (4) four weeks for a total of (40) forty, you would populate field “E” by adding (10) to the number of prizes in the previous week:
WEEK 1 – Set “Prize Total” to 10
WEEK 2 – Set “Prize Total” to 20
WEEK 3 – Set “Prize Total” to 30
WEEK 4 – Set “Prize Total” to 40
Prize totals appear under the “Pending” column totals (See in “Step 2. – Prize” the letter “H” column). Prizes that are not won or claimed will remain in the “Pending” column. You need to calculate in the total, so at the end of (4) weeks, it adds up to (40) “30% Off Coupon” prizes.
