Scratch Card

This feature is included in all plans.

The Scratch Card is developed to give away incentives in a fun way. Fill in the percentage of respondents that can win a prize, and let the Scratch Card decide who wins.

Look here how the respondent can swipe over the image to reveal that they've won a beach vacation!

add scratch card images

1. Type your text in this box. The answer text won’t show to the respondent, only to the admin in the reports.

2. Here you can can enter the probability to get the surprise answer, which is the percentage chance the respondent has of getting that answer. The sum of all the probabilities must add up to 100%.

3. Click Change image to add an image of your choice to be shown as the answer option.

Tip: If the image you have uploaded is not a rectangle, you can stamp a rectangle out of the picture you've just uploaded within our tool.

4. Limit number of times surprise answer can be chosen - Turn on this option to enter the maximum number of times this answer will be shown. Now you won't have to give away that vacation prize too many times!

Tip: If you set this limit the survey will need to be used online and won't work in offline mode

5. Click Add answer and repeat the steps above.

Here's an example of how your scratch card answer options could work: Chance of winning a vacation - 15%, maximum of 1 prize. 50% chance of winning a pair of sunglasses (50 pairs available) and 35% chance of losing - add a "better luck next time" image to console your respondents! Make sure to specify that the vacation image should only be shown once so you won't be giving away dozens of vacations!
