How to Make Scratch-Offs Free Trial

The three steps below demonstrate how to run a self-service scratch-off campaign on Priiize using your own text and images.

1. Get started with selecting a template from the Campaign Template Manager

Each campaign begins by choosing the template that matters most across your objectives and goal. Your chosen template will determine the rest of your campaign creation experience.

The templates are pre-populated with a coupon campaign that you write-over to create your campaign to simplify things.

Technically the scratch-off campaigns are usable. You can view it, change it to your business name and test as-is, and then go back and make your custom edits.

If you like your campaign(s) and decide to purchase, make sure to select the correct matching template(s) your free game(s) is built on so it migrates over.

2. Select your scratch-off game criteria

Reach the right objectives by using Priiize’s tools for campaign success. Set choices from 33 different customization settings, including logo, game theme colors, text, prizes set up, engagement timing, and prize claim management.

Prize Claims - Limit Time For Next Time To Play and Setting Prize Claim Expiration Date.

There are two settings to be aware of, one is “NEXT PLAY” which is the time delay or time limit you set for someone to be able to replay your game again. The second setting is “TIME EXPIRATION” which is the time limit you set for winners to be eligible to claim their prize or forfeit their prize.

NEXT PLAY

Set the Time Limit to Re Play Again – in hours, a day, week, month, or never.

PREVIEW > NEXT PLAY TAB 

(A) “Next Play” Tab click it.

(B) Next Play After (Hours)* – Set the time that players can play your game again.

In the example below, the desired amount of time was 1 WEEK. So you calculate 24 (hrs in a day) x 7 days (for a week) and it is 168 hours until the Next Play After.

SPECIAL NOTE:  For Baby Shower Scratch-Offs, Gift Reveals, and Gender Reveals “Next Play” setting click here >

Note for games set-up with valuable prizes, and no losers and or set to limit 1x play. Depending on the rules of your game, if you only allow 1x play be on the lookout for unscrupulous players that try to play multiple times to a prize through nefarious and manipulative methods. If you spot any duplicate email addresses in the Opt-In List (Facebook, Google, Email Opt-In) or Prize Claim Form and that person submits a Game Winner Prize Claim, you, as the Sponsor, have the right to Reject their Prize Claim at your discretion per the generic Rules, Terms, and Conditions published in every game. You have the ability to edit the rules, terms, and conditions at any time.

EMAIL NOTIFIERS for Prize Claims

(D) EMAIL NOTIFIERS  Select ‘Approve’ or ‘Reject’ buttons to notify Winner Prize Claims. Customize both notifiers with your custom message and how to redeem their prize, or the reason why their prize claim was rejected.

GOOD PRACTICE NOTE: You can only send email notifiers out and not receive so you should include your company email address and or phone number on the default Email Template in case a Winner or Loser needs to contact you or update their address.
