DragonByte Raffles is a powerful solution for hosting prize draws on your forum. With features like multi-currency support for easy integration into points mods like vBCredits II Deluxe, you can offer new ways of earning different points for your forum.

You are able to ask for entry fees and give payouts in different currencies, which can be used to award credits you otherwise don't allow people to attain, that you allow them to exchange for big prizes! You can also choose not to offer any payout, so you can host "just for fun" raffles!

Scheduled tasks automatically draw your chosen raffles at the chosen time, and winners are automatically notified. You can also post an announcement thread in a forum of your choice, to really highlight the winners.

Major Features

Automatically Drawn Raffles: Scheduled tasks automatically draw your raffles when their Draw Date is up.

Multiple Currency Support: You are able to integrate with other points mods like vBCredits by adding their currencies to this mod. You can also charge users the entry cost to the raffle in one currency, and give them prizes in other currencies.

Performance Oriented: Using modern coding techniques, the modification uses less resources than previous DBTech mods by only loading its data when it's explicitly needed.


Major Features (Pro)

Recurring Raffles: Never again create manual raffles or be forced to copy your existing ones, as you can configure raffles to recur once they draw, completely automatically.

Per-Category Usergroup Permissions: Want to reserve a raffle category for only a select few members? Bigger prizes, lower entry cost, you name it. You can fine-tune the usergroup permissions on a per-category basis, even allow usergroups who are globally denied from the Raffle system access to only the categories you choose.

thanks for the great hack,
I will test now!

I've filled in all fields but get this when trying to add currency:

A required field called pointstable is missing or has an invalid value.

Make sure you're not including the table prefix in the points table config field.

Exactly what I was going to say, that small adjustment will do wonders imo for this mod. Great idea however!

It'd be best if you post suggestions on their site, as this mod is still in phase of adding features, so it's very likely that your suggestions would be accepted. But, their site is the best place for suggesting features as they have special mod for tracking things up.
