Drawing names out of a virtual hat

Do you do prize draws, raffles or other competitions for your business where you need to pick a name out of a hat … but in a virtual or online way?

I’ve found a few tools that enable you to do this, but I am curious – what is everyone using for this type of thing? Let me know in the comments below please.

Some require you to register and log in.

These include www.randompicker.com and www.rafflecopter.com .

Some allow you to simply draw a name on the spot, without registering. There are a lot, but a few that came up first in my search results include:

www.miniwebtool.com/random-name-picker

www.randomresult.com

http://www.mathgoodies.com/calculators/random_no_custom.html

http://austindavid.com/flotsam/hat.php

https://www.randomlists.com/team-generator

http://namedrawing.com/

And then there are even more available to download as apps on to your phone. Again, the ones that came up first in my search were “Draw Names From a Hat" and “Names in a Hat”.

Have you used any of these? Or any others? I'd love to know what everyone is using ... feel free to comment below.
