• Appears to still work on 1.4.6 & 1.5.2 & 1.6.4 & 1.7.1 no reported bugs.



Q: How do I set the amount of money the jackpot should start with?

A: You need to set extraInPot to whatever amount you want it to start with, and then do clearExtraInPot: false

Q: The jackpot is winning too much, I don't want it to win.

A: Then you need to change the numberOfTickets to something else, or just set it to 0 (jackpot will never win then).


  • Users can buy one or more tickets and have the chance to win money in the pot (total tickets bought * price * net payout variable / 100 )
  • Configurable price, material (including money/coins), hours between lottery drawings and other configurations.
  • Supports iConomy v4, iConomy v5, iConomy v6, BOSEconomy v6, BOSEconomy v7, Essentials Eco, MultiCurrency and Vault.
  • Permission nodes using superPerms
  • Custom welcome message


These are the superPerm nodes you can use to tweak the default permissions.

  • : Gives you all the basic rights /lottery (buy, help, winners).
    • Given to all players by default, so you need to remove from the users/groups you don't want to have.
  • lottery.admin.draw : Gives the group/user access to the /lottery draw command.
    • Given to OP's by default.
  • lottery.admin.addtopot : Gives the group/user access to the /lottery addtopot command
    • Given to OP's by default.
  • lottery.admin.editconfig : Grant access to edit/reload the lottery config ingame
    • Given to OP's by default.


  • /lottery : Basic information
  • /lottery buy <number> : Buy one or <number> of tickets.
  • /lottery help : Help pages
  • /lottery winners : List over 10 last winners
  • /lottery draw : Force the drawing to happen. Op only if not permission plugin.
  • /lottery addtopot : Adds extra money/items to the pot. Op only if not permission plugin.
  • /lottery config <cost/hours/max/maxTicketsEachUser/reload> : Change/reload the config ingame.


In the configuration that is made when the plugin is run the first time, you don't get comments about the different options. Here you do!

PS: The /lottery claim command is used when you are using material and you win, since blocks/items can only be given to online players

    I have a problem with this plugin. I love it is amazing but there is a major glitch. I use diamonds as the item used to purchase lottery tickets. However, if someone purchases a ticket with a named diamond, then those diamonds will not be taken from their inventory.

    What does the jackpot option do in the config? Someone should update the config page and video :/

    would be nice if it would be possible to execute "/lottery draw" automatically if all tickets are sold
