How to Create a Slot Machine that has Different Winning Prizes
If you are interested in creating different winning options, you can do so by duplicating each promotion and have a different winning option for each promotion. Then create an A/B test with each promotion and different winning options. The broken down steps are as follows:
- Duplicate your promotion to have as many "winning options" as you choose. To learn how to duplicate a promotion, take a look at this article.
- Once you duplicate the number of promotions you want to have as winning options, head into the design canvas and update the "winning option" to be different for each promotion.
- Once each promotion is updated, head into your A/B testing area and create a test. To learn how to do so please reference this article.
- Once you get to the area to choose your base and variants, you can choose as many variants as you please from the promotions you duplicated. From here you can even choose how much you want to "weigh" the variants which will then weigh how often each promotions fires.
- From there you can save your A/B test and your Slot Machine with multiple outcomes will be live!
When using this plugin, please ensure you have a disclaimer listed on your site and hyperlinked in your Slot Machine promotion.
Please be advised that in most governed areas including all 50 states, sweepstakes are not legally allowed to be set winners. They must be randomized, although winning odds are allowed so long as they are described in detail on the game. Justuno has taken a different approach to helping navigate those legal waters while keeping it simple and more conversion friendly for your website visitors. Our sweepstake related games have set winners, but we recommend always setting the winning prize as the best possible prize shown. Because the website visitor always wins the best prize, you shouldn’t have to worry about the legalities of not having it randomized and at the same time you are ensuring the visitor has the best experience and thus has the most likely reason to purchase from you in that visitor session. In contrast to a version that would be randomized, where the website visitor may hold off purchasing from you because they saw there is a better prize offered in the game and they want to try again later.
