Cool Tabs allows you to create a campaign based on an online Jackpot, like the classic “slot machines”, to give out prizes instantly.
The way it works is very simple. The participant accesses the campaign, they will have to press a button so that the machine's reels start spinning and fill in the participation form. The reels will then stop and depending on the combination of symbols displayed by the three reels, they will have either won or lost.
This gamification, which is combined with the Instant Win mechanism, allows prizes to be scheduled on a date and at a specific time, and the winner or winners to be selected randomly and instantly. Therefore, if a user participates at the time or immediately after the time a prize is scheduled, the Jackpot machine will show the winning combination and the message that he or she is a winner.
In addition, you will be able to customize the symbols that are displayed on the machine's reels with your own images.
2. Step by step.
2.1. Create the campaign.
First, you must create your campaign and configure the basic setting. Is it your first time creating a campaign with Cool Tabs? In the following tutorial, we will show you how to configure the basic sections of a campaign, as well as other recommended settings, to ensure its proper functioning and maximize results.
If you have any questions during the process, you can contact us at email@example.com.
2.2. Configure the Instant Win.
The Jackpot is based on the Instant Win mechanics, so the next step is to configure the instant wins or winning moments in which you give out prizes.
To configure them, you can follow the steps in the tutorial: How to create an Instant Win campaign to give out instant win prizes.
Once you have made these settings, you will have to configure the Jackpot symbols, as explained below.
2.3. Configure the Jackpot.
After completing the previous sections, go to the "Gamifications" section. By default, when creating a campaign, it will appear without any gamification.
1) Activate the "Jackpot" option, and then click on "Configure" button.
2) Add each of the symbols on the Jackpot reels.
Upload the images (symbols) that will be displayed on the three reels of the machine. To do this, click the "Add Symbol" button.
Add as many symbols and different images as you'd like to be displayed in the Jackpot. Keep in mind that you will have to upload at least six different symbols.
When configuring each symbol, you will have to:
- Name the symbol. This name will not be public, but is necessary so that you can identify it internally.
- Upload the image. The images must be in JPG, PNG or GIF format (with or without transparency) and have a size of 180 x 140px. Please note that by default, the background color of the reels where the images are displayed will be white. The aspect ratio of the images on the reels is 9:7.
- Title. If you'd like, you can give your Jackpot machine a title. This title will be displayed on the data form page, just above the machine's reels.
- Content to display above the Jackpot machine: you have the option of displaying a longer text used as, for example, a description, appearing in the space between the title and the machine.
- Jackpot start button text: By default, the button that makes the machine start spinning is displayed with the text "Try Your Luck". You can modify it and include the text you'd like.
- Content to display above the Jackpot machine: optionally, you can display content (text and/or image), both on the data form page and on the page after participating. You can also include HTML. It will be displayed just above the machine.
Save the settings to continue customizing your campaign.
2.4. Link the Instant Wins with a symbol.
The last step is to link each instant win with a symbol. So that, the winners of that instant win will see the specific symbol (the winning combination) in the jackpot machine.
1) Go back to the 'Individual Instant Winners Management', from the 'Instant Win' section, to edit each Instant Win.
2) Go to the 'Jackpot' section of each Instant Win.
3) Open up the selector and select the symbol to link it to the Instant Win.
Below, you can see an example.
The instant win Travel Winner is associated with the travel symbol.
The winner of this instant win will see this symbol (airline tickets) as a winning combination in the Jackpot machine.
When you finish customizing the Instant Win, save the changes.
