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    This thread is no longer updated - check my page on BukkitDev.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

    Minor typo :D

    I am only supporting bukkit superPerms. The default values should be good enough tho, so I doubt you will have any problems.

    Thank you, I'll fix it :D

    whats wrong?
  7. Offline


    You are not using the new permission system (pex, bpermissions?)? What command are you trying to access?

    This problems comes when the built in bukkit permission system can't find the required permission node. Look up superPerms on the forums.

    Can I set the time for the draw? I want it to be 15.00 so I can send automatic messages to people. Now It just counts from the time the plugin was loaded?

    Make a ticket about it in the BukkitDev page and I'll think about it :)

    For some reason when I make changes to the config file and reboot the config file gets reset. Any reason for this? Mainly trying to get the Login lottery message turned off...but as I said - I edit the config, upload it start the server and it resets back to true...

    Hmm, well I was wondering why it stopped working... This is quite a bummer that you've only continued it with superPerms. I really like this plugin, it was very popular among my players, but in all honesty, Permissions 3 just works better. :p Still no chance you'd update it for Perms 3?

    i got an error when i buy tickets: an internal error occured while attempting to perform this command
    please help me
  13. Offline


    I need some more info.

    I'm really sorry, but my spare time is very limited at the moment, and I see superPerms as the future.

    It don't work well enough with just the default permissions?

    No it's not that there is something wrong with SuperPerms, and I'm sure your plugin works perfectly well with it, it is jsut that not many of my plugins are compatible with SuperPerms. :p

    Mr. Hollywood

    i have a problem...
    the lottery works well but there is one problem
    the only one that wins is the admin (me)
    please say me how to fix it.

    No, what I ment to ask is if the plugin don't work well enough with the default values the plugin set if no superPerm plugin is found. :)

    I'm pretty sure this isn't caused by the plugin, but if you have any detailed information about this and have a way for me to reproduce the error, then please tell me :D

    Is there anyway to disable the Jackpot winning?
  23. Offline


    Set numberOfTickets: 0

    I am using it on my 1.0 server. Any errors?

    I support everything supported by Register plugin, and thus should EssentialsEco be supported.

    This should be pretty easy to implement. If you add it as a ticket to the Lottery site I'll add it when I have time (est 1-2 weeks).

    I am somewhat a noob to Bukkit, just keep that in mind lol.

    Anyways, the Jackpot keeps winning.

    Here is the config file:
      cost: 100
      hours: 3
      nextexec: 1329176155729
      material: 266

      extraInPot: 0
      clearExtraInPot: true
      netPayout: 100
      maxTicketsEachUser: 1
      numberOfTicketsAvailable: 0
      jackpot: 2300
      debug: false
      lastwinner: Jackpot
      lastwinneramount: 2300
      welcome: '&6[LOTTERY] &fDraw in: &c%drawLong%'
    What am I doing wrong? I changed the numberoftickets to 0, like you mentioned in a post above me. Please help!

    Just a headsup before the coming RB which will cause quite the mess :p
