    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).

    • Supports iConomy v4, iConomy v5, iConomy v6, BOSEconomy v6, BOSEconomy v7, Eco Essentials and MultiCurrency. Thanks to @KHobbits

    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)

    Thanks for the heads up, I've found the problem. It seems to occur when the player don't have an account already. I did think that calling the getAccount() in iConomy would create the account, but seems I must be doing something wrong.

    Edit: I will try to fix it tomorrow.

    Well i came from version 2 or 3 and it seems letting it recreate the lottery config fixes the issue.

    Is there a way to do like a 50/50
  11. Offline


    Any future support for buying more than one ticket? With a limit per player?
  12. Offline


    No, sorry. You should request it as another plugin, should be very simple.

    At the moment I have way to much to do with school and exams, so I will not add any new features in a while.

    Econ support? please

    Fair enough. I'm in the same boat, so I understand :)

    How long does it usually take for the lottery to auto draw after the 24 hour period ends?

    I've let it sit about 3-4 minutes before I just did a manual draw.
  16. Offline


    That depends on how much lag the server have had since last restart. The time is measured in server ticks. On a server with 0 lag, there is about 20 ticks each second.

    I am at the moment working on a method to make the time more accurate, but I will also make a auto draw if someone uses the /lottery commands and it says "Draw will occur soon".

    I agree, the plugin works with CB:740 but NOT with iConomy V5.

    Does this support BOSEconomy?
  20. Offline


    Oh, I had the 0.4.3 version working with iConomy v5. Are you sure you are using the latest version of this plugin? If you are, give me some info from the console and cb version.

    No, not at the moment.
  21. Offline


    Whoa, I just got the update via CraftBukkitUpToDate and nearly upgraded the plugin without reading the changelog, lucky for me I came here to check first that you made it support iConomy v5 and it isn't compatible with older versions anymore, since I have many plugins that use iConomy v4, I will have to wait for most of them to update to v5 first.

    Great job on migrating to v5 though! The faster plugin developers migrate to v5, the less time we have to wait :D

    This is great, thanks!
    One feature I'd like to see is a default amount automatically added to the pot each lottery.

    Could You please like add that if not right ticket option just adds money to next lottery cuz i think that would be cool and way more realalistic
  24. Offline


    Great plugin. Is there anychance of being able to change the colour of the [LOTTER] announcement in the config file? Would REALLY appreciate that :)
  25. Offline


    Thank you :)

    I will see if I can't add one like that, yeah :) Won't be right now tho.

    I'll probably work on something like that, yes. But not right now.

    I'll think about it! :) But as you have the source available, its not much work compiling your own .jar with the colors you want :)

    Ahh i'm no developer though. Its not a huge deal to be honest. One thing thats bugging me, is every time i try and change the hours to draw from 24 to 72, nothing changes. It just still says however many hours left. I even removed the plugin and reinstalled it... Any help?
  27. Offline


    Restart server to make sure the new time variable is loaded, then just do a "/lottery draw" and it should use 72 hours next time. :) Hope this fixes your problem.

    awesome thanks!

    Are your sources updated because I saw the old iConomy version nodes ?
  30. Offline


    Hmm, could you maybe add a few more features to make it more like lottery... where not only 1 person gets a prize. I mean if you have 50 people buy a ticket and only 1 person wins then that's a lot of cash and the other people leave sour :p

    Maybe add an option to balance that out where the winner gets a lot but the runner ups get something aswell...

    That might be! I'll push a commit when I get home.
