# If raffle winner broadcasts should go to all players or just the participants of the raffle (ticket holders)
Messages {
    # If not blank, will broadcast this message to all players when a raffle is created
    CreateBroadcast="&eThe &6{Raffle_Name} &eraffle has been created!"
    # Message sent if a raffle has no winner
    NoWinnerMessage="&eThe &6{Raffle_Name} &eraffle has no winner!"
    # Message sent to announce the winner of a raffle
    WinnerMessage="&eThe winner of the &6{Raffle_Name} &eis &6{Winner}&e!"
# Default Raffle Values

Can we get a potential update to this plugin, I absolutely love the concept of it but i dont like the idea of No one winning the raffle when multiple people bought tickets. I’ve had about 6 people buy for one raffle all buying 3 or more tickets which adds up to alot of money on the server just for no one to win when there was only like 2 Unsold tickets. The bot seems to win more than the players do even when there are more player tickets than bot tickets

Can you create an issue for that here? I’ll see if I can add that feature when I update this plugin :slightly_smiling_face:.

I think i did it right lol
