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    This thread is no longer updated - check my page on BukkitDev.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

    I get told in game that the lottery will be drawn in 244 days, yet in the settings it is set to 24 hours.
    I had a few friends played a joke on me and changed my system clock to November 2011, maybe that is what has caused the problem.
    I also get this on another plugin that is meant to check every 6 hours - CraftBukkitUpToDate

    15:21:03 [INFO] The automatic update-Check only work every 6 hours, the last check was -211761 minutes ago.

    Anyway to change the server time to the CURRENT time and fix both of these plugins that are time based?

    Restart your server and use /lottery draw

    if a player is offline when the lottery is over there should be an announcement when that player gets on saying who won the lottery.

    other than that love this plugin!

    Actually @Erbros you got it wrong.
    Lottery is saving for itself part of the money, not to:
    "/lottery addtopot : Adds extra money/items to the pot. Op only if not permission plugin."
    I would like an option to let the winner get only 50-70% of the money, not all of the ticket's price :/
    This is how lotarry works..

    Everyone goes for his luck, but actually in the ned less money go out then went in. Like casinos, you know :)

    Did you have anything wrong with your iConomy setup? I see iConomy were throwing errors. I will check it out if you think everything was correct with your iConomy setup.

    Adding it now.

    How about making it so the player that wins only gets x% of the money in the pot. That way over time the pot size grows?
  12. Offline


    How do i set the lottery time to less than 23 hours?
  13. Offline


    can you add a sign were stand how much is in the pot?
  14. Offline


    Will this work with EssentialsEco? If so, this looks like an awesome plugin and I can see potential for it on my private server with friends.
  15. Offline


    It only works with iConomy at the moment.

    Change the config in plugins/Lottery/config.yml

    Change the variable hours to whatever amount of hours you wish. :)

    Perhaps later, thanks for the suggestion.

    I'd like to request to be able to change the message formats and coloring if possible! Great plugin btw!

    I just had a quick question I every time I try to type /lottery addtopot it tells me there is an internal error.. I was just wondering how to fix that
  21. Offline


    Depends how much lag is on your server. I'll make it better in next release tho! :)
    Sorry, I'll do it straight away :p

    Bukkit version + Lottery version + Server error msg would help me a lot! :)

    It should be better with the new release! :)

    Thank you :) I implemented the netPayout in WinningAmount() instead :)

    Also I'm releasing 0.4.5 which will let you configure the plugin not to clear extraInPot (/lottery addtopot) after draw.

    @CAria : Thank you :)

    @alfskan : Check 0.4.5 :)
