Upload your list of entrants in a .csv file. No column headers. Row 1 column 1 should begin your first entrant. All entrants must be in column 1. There should not be anything in column 2 and beyond.
Paste in names or another unique identifier you want to pick from. One per line. This method supports up to 20,000 lines. If you need more, please use the upload CSV option.
The random name picker is a free and easy to use tool that allows you to pick a random name (or other unique identifier like email address) from a list of provided names. Once you insert your list of names, you will input how many winners to pick, the title of your drawing, and your email address so we can send you a verification link to complete the drawing.
The random name picker uses the PHP mt_rand function, which generates random values between the specified minimum and maximum values via the Mersenne Twister Random Number Generator.

The random name picker can be used to pick winners for giveaways, sweepstakes, contests, raffles, competitions, and more! Companies can use it to select winners for their promotions, teachers can use it to pick names for classroom activities, and it can even be used for those difficult decisions, like what to eat for dinner.
You can use any type of values to pick winners from. Numbers, names, symbols, emojis, email addresses, physical addresses, literally anything you can think of you can put into the picker and we'll randomly select the designated number of winners.
No, we do not remove duplicates from your list, but we will remove empty or blank lines from both the file you upload, or the list that you paste in.
After the drawing is complete, we automatically delete all data that was uploaded to our system. We do not store, rent, or sell data we collect in anyway. We only collect data that allows us to facilitate the drawing on your behalf. The only data the remains is the data of the winners, which is available to you on the special link sent to your email address.
