A raffle draw is a powerful promotional tool to influence customer behaviour at your venue – from time in venue to attendance at specific times. The following SwiftPOS help guide is an example of a members-only raffle draw promotion.

The Scenario

Members can earn raffle tickets over a period of a month whenever they spend more than $50.00 on drinks. A draw will be held every Friday in the same month. 

The Setup Required

  1. In SwiftPOS Back Office, create the Barrel Draw Promotion to control the earning and issuing of raffle tickets. 


Make sure the Accumulative option is selected. This will ensure that drinks purchased by individual members during the 1 month promotional period will accumulate. When either the Spend Money Value or the Spend Product Qty is reached then the member will be rewarded with a raffle ticket. 

2. From the Barrel Promotion Edit screen in SwiftPOS Back Office, if required, create the Design Layout for the Barrel Promotion Ticket to be issued using the Design button at the bottom of the screen.

3. At Reception setup a Barrel Draw Printer as Peripheral to facilitate the printing of tickets.

Note: The Printer Number specified when setting up the Barrel Draw Printer must also be specified in the Barrel Promotion Edit screen above, in the Printer field. This will not apply when the Virtual Draw option has been selected. 

4. At each SwiftPOS Touch Terminal, where Raffle Tickets are earned/printed, the following will need to be configured:

  1. The Customer Settings > Misc > Barrel Promotions settings are configured as required at each SwiftPOS Touch Terminal where tickets are earned/printed. 

  2. If Raffle tickets are going to be printed, a Barrel Promotion Printer will need to be configured

Front-Of-House Operation

  1. At the SwiftPOS Touch terminal, sell items to a member. Whenever the Spend Money Value or the Spend Product Qty is reached within the earn barrel promotion ticket date/time, then the member will be rewarded with a raffle ticket. A notification will appear on the receipt.
