    Lottery - The Lottery Plugin:

    I will only be using the BukkitDev website from now on. Please ask for help, submit bugs or enchantments and download the plugin from my page there (LINK).

    This thread is no longer updated - check my page on BukkitDev.

    Beware: Now only supporting superPerms from 0.6.2 and onwards!

    Version: v 0.6.2

    This plugin lets your users buy tickets for a price you decide to a lottery drawing.

    • Users buy a ticket and can win the money of everyone that have bought a ticket.
    • Configurable price, material (including money/coins) and hours between lottery drawings.
    • Supports iConomy v4, iConomy v5, iConomy v6, BOSEconomy v6, BOSEconomy v7, Eco Essentials and MultiCurrency. Thanks to @KHobbits
    • Permission nodes supporting superPerms (Bukkits default permission system)

    The Lottery Plugin v. 0.6.2

    Old releases:
    Source Code (This is my first project ever in java, so I would appreciate any advice in

    how to improve my coding very much)


    In the configuration that is made when the plugin is run the first time, you don't get comments about the different options. Here you do!

    #How many hours between every lottery drawing? Only whole numbers above 0 (like 1 or 2 or 3.... 24 or 25...)
    hours: '24'
    # The next execution option is really not to be touched. Its time in millisecs since 1. January 1970.
    nextexec: 1300368259883
    # Cost is the amount the buyer got to pay to buy a ticket. This applies both to iConomy coins and material. Only whole numbers. Negative numbers will probably work, but I don't see the point.
    cost: '5'
    #The material setting lets you choose which Material Value your users got to pay with, and get if they win. (its the "dec(imal)", value)
    material: '266'
    # If you want to use iConomy coins, set it to "true". If you want to choose your own material (block or item), set it to false.
    useiConomy: 'false'
    # If broadcastBuying is set to false, there will not be sent a message to every player when somebody buys a ticket.
    broadcastBuying: 'true'
    # welcomeMessage decides if there should be sent a message to the player on join about time until draw.
    welcomeMessage: 'true'
    #extraInPot just holds the amount of extra winnings in the pot has been added with /lottery addtopot
    extraInPot: 0
    #clearExtraInPot decides whether the plugin set extraInPot=0 after lottery draw, or if the same amount will stay until somebody changes it with /lottery addtopot <+/-> <amount>
    clearExtraInPot: true
    #netPayout is the percentage of the total pot that is being paid out to the winner. This can be as large as you wish, but not lower than 1 (one). 100 = 100%, which means the winner will get exactly as much as the players have paid in while buying tickets.
    netPayout: 100
    #maxTicketsEachUser sets the max amount of tickets each player can buy
    maxTicketsEachUser: 1
    #debug - This won't show up by itself, and there is really no reason for you to have this unless there is something wrong with your install of the plugin.
    debug: false

    PS: The /lottery claim command is used when you are using material and you win, since blocks/items can only be given to online players :)


    • A set number of tickets available, and let the user choose which one to buy. If nobody had the right ticket, add money to jackpot for next drawing. (low)
    • Using configurable array of prize items instead of getting whats in the pot. (low)
    • Show time left when it's 2 hours left, 1 hour left etc. Configurable. (low)
    • Let admins give out free tickets. (normal)

    Yesi altered the config from 25 hours to 6 and 5 coins to 250. This was after it loaded on the server.

    You might want to restart the server. I will add a reload config command ! :)

    Updated to version 0.2. There might still be some bugs, but I've tested it quite good on both Linux and Windows servers.

    Had an error where I had forgotten to use system defined separators in paths, and had hardcoded the windows separators. Fixed.

    Updated to v 0.2.1
    • Formatting material name. GOLD_INGOT -> Gold ingot

    I hope I have made a plugin that fits your request! :)

  14. would it be possible to make it so that admins can manually add someone/give someone a ticket? (I'm wanting to have lottery tickets as a free reward for users who do certain things, but i dont want to give them money, because the weight will be a bit different in my economy systems)

    That should be easy, will add it to my todo! :)

    I have tested both 556 and 531, and had no problems. Until I can help you, please give me server console output.

    ok how would i set the default members to use the lottery permissions?

    - 'lottery'
    - ''
    - ''
    - ''

    - 'lottery.draw'

    Like That??? ^^^^

    Something I would love to see is the option to "tax" the tickets -- so if the ticket price were 10 coins, maybe the tax would be 1 coin. If only one person bought tickets, then it would refund their whole purchase price at draw time, but if multiple people bought tickets, it would reduce the pot by the tax percent. I'm looking for ways to reduce the amount of money on my server, hehe. Need a good blackjack plugin! =P

    Sorry, I have no permissions yet, so every member of your server can use commands, except /lottery draw, which only OP's can use. Going to fix permissions in a little while.

    I have been thinking about something like this myself. Will add it to my todo! :) Will probably tax first ticket bought also, tho.

    I will see if I can add it. Sounds pretty similar to the iConomy, and I already got a plugin listener. The problem occurs if the user is using both RealEconomy and iConomy, but I think I'll just have to force the Lottery plugin to use iConomy then.

    The same guy on my server has won the lottery the last 6 times...why
  25. Offline


    I will need the console output.

    Okay, that is a serious issue! Will have to investigate it.... The first thing that comes to my mind is that he perhaps is first out buying tickets every time? I might have an error there!

    I have tested it, and can't reproduce the error. How many persons are in your lottery? What version of Lottery are you running? How much is the cost to buy a ticket, and how much do the person win?

    We were just running the one before the newest one. He has one 6 times. 50 coins each - 250, 250, 450, 400, and 90 (when it was 30)

    And i love the new broadcast thing!

    Can you have it support simpleshop too?
  27. Offline


    Works great. Thanks
  28. Offline


    I will add simpleshop to the todo list, and see what I can do.

    Concerning the same player winning all the time... I am unable to reproduce it.. I have tested it on my own server, but if you get even more wins from the same player, I will have to check this out even more.

    Thanks! :)
