If you're on a budget, but want to have a school raffle or Bingo night, Club Raffle can help. The program is free of charge, but you should plan to spend some time getting it set up to suit your needs.

Club Raffle's very basic interface is mostly a large text prompt to upgrade to the paid version. A basic menu at the top lets you select the four basic options, which include three drawings and one Bingo game. The drawings all announce a winner, and it wasn't clear at first how to customize the fields. A little onscreen help would have been nice, but we had to dig to find the packed Options menu. Here, the directions were good, allowing you to change the prizes and customize other game features. If you plan on entering actual names for the raffles, you'll need to create a text file with one name per line, which could be time-consuming if you have a lot of entrants. There are only three themes to choose from, and the default is Halloween. We opted to turn off Microsoft Anna, as the numbers or winners were flashed onscreen and the audio wasn't necessary. Once you have your options set up, you just choose one of the drawings or the Bingo game from the menu and it will run automatically after a short countdown and another plug for the upgrade.

For smaller groups or classroom fun, Club Raffle offers a fairly easy way to show a game of Bingo or random raffle onscreen. Once it's started, you can just let it run. The themes are limited, but they look fine, and, as you're reminded often, you can always upgrade to get more variety.

Club Raffle is available as a Free version and a Professional version, in either version you have complete control over the setup of each type of draw, that is to say the free version is not crippleware, it is completely functional. When I created this application I was unable to find a suitable program on the web and those that I did find were basically "crippleware" ... The only limitation in the FREE version is limited themes, advertising and a few advanced features. In the Professional version the application provides the opportunity to promote your sponsors with banners and images that remain on screen before and after a raffle draw in addition to all available animation themes. Club Raffle is unique in that you choose the animation that is used to draw your lucky numbers or names. The ability to use and change animations means your Raffle has that added excitement missing from most raffle draws. Currently theme's include Rainbow, Halloween, Golf, Baseball, Lawn Bowls, Aussie Rules, Jazz and Sci-Fi. New to Club Raffle V3 is the ability to also create your own themes or modify existing themes to better suit your needs. Multiple prize lists, each with up to 1000 prizes, up to 5000 names or ticket numbers in a reverse raffle and up to 1,000,000 tickets in a Raffle draw using up to 100 ticket sequences with optional color and prefix. It's all customizable with the Club Raffle software package.
