1. Start a Campaign, and Select a Template

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 four templates are pre-populated with discount coupons and monetary prizes that can be used or written over with your text and or prizes images.

Technically the default scratch-off campaigns that are pre-populated on each template are usable. You can change them to your business name and test as-is, and then go back and make your custom edits. Once you know where tools are located, making edits is as simple as wiggling your left toe.

If you like your campaign(s) and decide to purchase, make sure to select the correct matching template(s) your game(s) were built on so it migrates over to make your scratch-offs without having to rebuild your campaign(s) again.

2. Select your scratch-off game criteria

Reach the right objectives by using Priiize’s tools for campaign success. Set choices from over 40 customization settings, including logo, game theme colors, text, prize set up, engagement timing, and prize claim management to make scratch-offs. View the complete feature list here »

Click Scratch & Win + Claim template to make your first virtual scratch-off card

This is the 'Scratch & Win with prize claim form template you will be working on.

This campaign utilizes Priiize’s classic scratch-off game with a Prize Claim Form. It is very intuitive and easy to use. The following steps and diagrams will point out key features to give Priiize’s powerful capabilities a broad stroke.

All Priiize Scratch-Off Game Templates are 100% editable – add your logo, overwrite prizes, text, images, and colors.

We are using the ‘Scratch & Win Template + Claim’ Template for these instructions.  The ‘Scratch & Win Template + Claim’ Template is the most popular template. Players who win must claim their prize won. You approve prize claims manually or automatically, and it features turnkey emails to notify winners.  Capture and download all winner’s info, and prizes won in Excel, CSV, or PDF.

If you plan on creating your own images, these are the image specs to follow:

The Flow of the Scratch & Win Template + Claim Template

Players will start with their game unscratched; after they scratch, their prize will be revealed after scratch-off, and finally, they will be asked to fill out a prize claim form. Prize claims can be set to either manual or automatic approval.

Once you are logged in, you will find it is very simple and easy to use and navigate around in, and even faster to make quick changes and revisions to manage and make scratch-offs.  

This is the basic breakdown of the Priiize campaign builder dashboard.

The Priiize dashboard is basically made up of 5 main tabs and each has its own set of Sub-tabs.

Each Sub-tab has a Vertical menu. You click through each tab and edit as you go. Each template has a campaign pre-populated in it. You can delete or write over the content to customize each step of the way.

OVERVIEW

(A) Click the Blue “Text” button  – if you upload a prize image, it will display in the box

(B) Description  – add a prize description here. This will display on the prize square under the scratch-off pad. Text cannot go beyond 14 characters per line, and no two should be named the same.
IMPORTANT NOTE: During the testing check, the “Prize” column in the “Game Winner Prize Claims” report (Step 5. Campaign Result > Game Winner Prize Claims) to make sure prize name descriptions are clear and concise. Make sure each prize is clearly stated what it is and named differently. 

For example, if you are rewarding several different book titles, do not name each prize “Book.” during prize setup. Add a descriptive word or title, so they are distinguishable from each other—rename prizes as necessary.

make sure prize name descriptions are clear and concise

(C) Prize Total  – This is where you type in the total number of prizes allocated for this prize. In this example, 10 winners will win a “10% Off” prize.

(D) Validators  – Note: We recommend setting to “Manual” – The software sniffs players’ IP Addresses. If people play from multiple devices, have cookies turned off, or in a Browser’s incognito mode, they could bypass the system. 

It is best to set prizes to be manually approved to control situations like this, especially for high-value prizes. Each prize won will have its own unique Prize Claim Number and Admin Validation Number to keep your records. Doing this will prove that a prize is won and validated, especially if there is an accidental or nefarious attempt to claim prizes multiple times unless your game rules allow for this.

(E) Claim Form  –  Click “On” or click “Off” the fill-in fields (circled in orange) you want Winners to provide you on their Prize Claim Form. You can set up each prize claim to have different fill-in fields.

For example, if you are giving away a low-value prize like a 10% Off Coupon, you could select only their ‘First Name’ and ‘Email Address’ and set (D) Validators to “Auto Approve” for the least friction for data acquisition. If you were giving away a high-value prize, like a trip to Disney World, you would probably want their full name, street address, and phone number, and set (D) Validators to ‘Manual Approve’ to review and check over first and not automatically approve the prize claim. 

(E) There are only two fields that have to be active on the prize claim form and cannot be turned off, which are the “First Name” and “Email” fields.​

GENERAL OVERVIEW SOME OF THE TABS  – explore each tab; it is intuitive and easy to use. We will highlight a few so you become more familiar with them.

(A) “Global” Tab

As you click on the horizontal menu, the items in the vertical menu change. This is where you will upload your company logo, or if you do not have a logo, you can type in a name in Logo Type adjust the font size and color.

(B) Logo – customization. 
LOGO IMAGE: 
Start with fitting your logo on a 600×300 image, so it shrinks on mobile devices and displays large on desktop monitors.

If you want a color background to appear behind your logo, then upload your logo with a transparent background in either a .png or .gif format, or make the background color.

(C) Logo – upload a logo image or type it manually as one line of text to fit within the dotted line box. Keep it at one line, not more; otherwise, it will not display correctly.

(D) Text – type in your company name here. If you upload an image, ignore this setting.

(E) Logo Text size – if you typeset your logo.

(E) Logo Color – if you typeset your logo. Click on the black color box, and it will open up to a color picker tool.

(G) Logo Height – if you want to set a logo image to a specific size using this; otherwise, ignore it. Priiize will automatically size your logo to fit the maximum area allowed for mobile phone best practices.

NEW FEATURE ⇒ (H) Logo Padding Height Adjustment – move a logo higher or lower from the top monitor edge. 

How our platform works is it centers everything and adjusts it in the middle and not horizontally from the top down. We must do this to accommodate all the different screen sizes worldwide. Our game was designed to have up to 3 lines of text.

Note to Graphic Designers: If you do not want to not use 3 lines of headline text and things don’t quite look balanced to your taste your options are:

1. Add more or less bottom or top to the logo image
2. Add three lines of headline text and play around with the font size. This will push content upward and downward more.
3. Add one, two, or three lines of headline text and make the text color the same color as the background or transparent, so it is hidden against the background, and play around with the font size. This will push content upward and downward more.
4. Make the play now button and “Rules, Terms, and Conditions” text larger
5. Create a logo that is more stacked and deeper and looks good centered and not so linear.

11/14/2021 – Priiize Announcement – New Technology Feature – A new software update is in place that will prevent players from playing your game with cookies turned off or playing in a public area using Wi-Fi. Plus, they will not be able to submit a prize claim if the “Next Play” setting is “Never Again” or between the period you determine. For example, if the Next Play game setting allows players to play 1x per week, this will prevent them from playing again until the week is up.

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.

  • To allow people only one-time to play set it to “Never Play Again.”
  • To let people play only one-time a day, set it to “End of Day.”
  • To have people play over and over set to “Immediate Replay.”
  • For Custom Hours (read instructions in item 2) – if you want people to only be able to play one-time a week set it to 168 (hours) or every other day set to 48 (hours), etc.
"Next Play" time time delay until the next time a player can play, or set to "Never Play Again" for 1-tiime gameplay.

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. Set it by hours, end-of-day, custom number of hours, or set it to an exact day and time on the (C) Custom Hours– the system calculates “Custom Hours” by the number of hours you set for a player to play again. In the example below, the desired amount of time was 1 WEEK. You calculate 24 (hrs in a day) x 7 days (for a week), and it is 168 hours until the Next Play After.

This ties in with the Time Zone selected when you started your game.

Reinstate a failed prize claim

WHAT CAN CAUSE A “FAILED PRIZE” CLAIM?

The “Failed Prize” dashboard will display any player(s) who experience an issue trying to make a prize claim and cannot complete the steps to submit a prize claim form. You can see who it is, why their share did not fully process, and then “Revert” the “Failed Prize” claim to go into the Prize Claims list to approve (or deny).

A few reasons a prize claim can stall why submitting a Prize Claim are:

  1. Bad connection with IP provider.
  2. If a claim date is expired.
  3. The phone battery goes dead.
  4. It will happen if the prize claim is not made in sequential order. Sequential means:
    OPTIN => PLAY => WIN/LOSS => CLAIM.
  5. In scenario #4 above, ask the player to refresh the page. The error message will display, “Invalid request. Please refresh the page and proceed again.

New Feature! Bulk "Approve" or "Reject" Prize Claims instead of one at a time.

New - Bulk "Approve" or "Deny" Prize Claims

Two Methods to Bulk "Approve" or "Reject" Prize Claims

FIRST WAY: Click the check box next to (A)Won Date” and it will automatically check off every prize claim waiting to be manually approved. Then click the green “Approve” button at the top.  Only use this method if you are planning to APPROVE everyone (no Rejects). Repeat the same method if you want to Reject every prize claim that is set to manual approval.

Method 1 to Bulk "Approve" or "Reject" Prize Claims

SECOND WAY: Click the (A) check-off box one by one next to each prize claim waiting to be manually approved. Then click the green (B)Approve” button at the top.  Only use this method if you plan to APPROVE a select number of players or REJECT a choose number of players.
