Instant Win is a gaming application, that lets you create contests with prizes. It is possible to create and manage contests based on two available game modes:

  • Code-based contests
  • Draw-based contests

End-users can play the games by accessing the Instant Win application on the Welcome Portal (within the App Bar, or within a content block, per the configuration chosen for the application).

To access Instant Win application, click on the quick access toolbar on the left Manage → Apps → Marketing → Instant Win. Here you can access the available game modes.

Each of them has a separate section where it is possible to create and manage contests. These actions can be performed by the Company Manager or delegate to Venue Manager. For further information about delegation settings, please see the article about Apps.

Code-based contests

For contest based on this game mode, the application generates some codes that shall be physically provided to end-users. Some of these are winning codes. End-users can access the Welcome Portal, enter their code into the appropriate input field, and check if the code is winning or not.

The player who has won should physically go to the Venue Manager in order to validate the assignment of the award.

For the Code-based contest mode, in the Admin Panel, there are three actions available:

  • Create
  • Check
  • Manage

By clicking the Create button, it is possible to create a new contest. The fields to specify are the following:

  • Game name: this indicates the name of the contest.
  • Campaign code: this indicates a code needed to regulate games based on national rules (if provided) since some countries have a regulation and require an authorization to companies which intend to promote such kind of game. If you do not have a value to enter into this field, you can enter any value.
