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    This thread is no longer updated - check my page on BukkitDev.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

    For some reason, most of the time when the lottery is supposed to draw, instead of drawing and resetting the countdown goes in the negatives so it says like -30 seconds till it draws. Please fix.

    I have not been able to reproduce this. Does this happen when you have start the server after a long shutdown?
  6. Offline


    Nope. My server runs 24/7 without restarts. I get home at the time of the lottery drawing and that ussually happens so i make it force draw. You can come in the server and see if you like.... PM me if you wanna see,

    Okay, I'll check out the code at first chance.

    Seconding this error. I have to draw it manually as well.

    I need more info. Lottery version, bukkit version, operation system.

    Okay, I will see into this when I got the chance.

    I third that, it will eventually draw it at random but not until its into the negative
    and thanks for the mod i love it!

    Feature Request:

    Work with the EcoCreature developer to have the "death tax" of players dying go to the LOTTERY pot. - this would make the best plugin EVER.


    Having to manually draw the lotto 9/10 times.
  13. Offline


    Seconded. That would be SWEET!
  14. Offline


    When i do any command im getting internal error reports. does it work with permissions mod?
  15. Offline


    No, its not using permissions mod at the moment. That will be included in next version.

    Are you sure you are using iConomy or have put "useiConomy: 'false' " in the config.yml ? Without any more info, thats all I can guess is wrong.

    Thank you for the report! :) Does it come with several drawings, but only one with a winner?

    Else it might look like I have a problem with iConomy. Will check if they have changed anything.
  18. Offline


    Well - oddly enough, I just randomly saw the error - we get so much server spam I may have missed it if I didnt have the console open. So I can't say for 100% - I just saw it the once.

    (Work with the EcoCreature developer to have the "death tax" of players dying go to the LOTTERY pot. - this would make the best plugin EVER.) <--- that would be awesome too :D

    I have tried A LOT to be able to split my plugin up in different files, but to no success. I will now go back to just writing the plugin, and perhaps I gain the knowledge I need to split my plugin sometime later.

    First fix complete: Now using the timer scheduler in bukkit itself, and timers out of control should be a closed chapter. The bad thing is that time will not be that accurate, as a laggy server will make the time go slower. Because of this i might change hours in config to ingame days. Please let me know what you think about it.

    I will now implement permissions and admin being able to put money in pot.

    Lottery plugin now support permission nodes! :)

    Works great thanks.

    Especially liking the addtopot command. Is that automatically added each day or does an admin have to add to pot after each drawing?
  21. Offline


    They have to add it @nacs

    The Scheduler is killer for our server - it generally lags everything harsh like. I'll see how it goes.

    I am using a timer with a new thread, so it shouldn't lag the server. If it happens to do so, I will see if I can improve my former timer instead.

    Yeah, same here.

    Have you tried with the newest release?
  25. Offline


    Yeah, but I think it's working. At least it works since a few hours.

    Works great now thanks!

    @Erbros a bit of help? I'm running on CB 670 atm and it just says "draw in: Draw will occur soon!"

    When I try to force draw I get this:
    19:31:01 [INFO] DRAW NOW

    Could you make "addtopot" a multiplier? That would make things much simpler (for me anyway)
  31. Offline


    You don't have iConomy installed. Please either install iConomy or change the variable "useiConomy: 'false' " in config.yml

    I have no idea why this is happening. But when the "Draw will occur soon" is coming, it's generally just because the server have been lagging. Please just wait a bit, it will draw in a short bit (0-30 mins).
