What is WinHalf?
Winhalf is a ticketing system that completely optimizes fundraising activities driven by raffles, 50/50 raffles, and Split-The-Pots. It minimizes overhead costs, risks in handling cash and tickets, improves transaction transparency, decreases fraud, and creates the ability for more funds to be raised through easier participation from patrons.
How does a raffle work?
When you setup a raffle, you will be able to select the start time, closing time, and the time to select the winner. You can also customize the ticket purchase options.
When the raffle starts, your participants will be able to start buying tickets and watch the pot grow. When the pot closes, participants will not be able to purchase more tickets.
At the time you selected, our system will automatically select the winner and they will receive a text message from WinHalf saying they have the winning ticket in your raffle. Also, any administators on your WinHalf account will get a text message with the winner's information to allow them to reach out and organize payment.
Is it legal?
Winhalf is simply a ticketing system and as long as your organization can legally host and run raffles, you're fine.
Is it hard to set up?
Winhalf is easy to set up! With just a flew clicks you have an end-to-end solution.
