How To Use the Raffle Overlay

A raffle overlay is similar to a virtual t-shirt cannon within your stream. Using raffles encourages users to stay active and logged in while you're live for a chance to win a reward, making them great for downtime as well as any other part of the event.

Winners are selected at random from the list of users who submitted an entry. 


To use a raffle overlay:

  1. Click Overlays from the admin bar under Engage & Monetize
  2. Click to preview the overlay and Use to customize & broadcast
  3. Enter Reward
  4. Select All channels if you want this overlay to appear site wide
  5. Click the broadcast button to push your raffle live


Once the raffle overlay has been broadcasted, a series of three overlays will automatically trigger:

  • The first overlay let's users know a raffle is about to begin
    • “A giveaway will begin soon. Watch here to participate!” with a 60 s countdown
  • The second overlay prompts users to submit their entry
  • The third overlay automatically chooses and broadcasts the name of the winner in stream

Once a winner is selected, they can be found in the Analytics dashboard within the Engagement tab:

  1. Click Overlays
  2. Click within the row with your Raffle to expand it
  3. You’ll be able to view the winner’s reward, username, email, and user ID
