People love games. It's a fact. And so an interactive slot machine (or "jackpot") is a type of campaign that can be very useful, including to drive potential customers to your website by giving them the opportunity to win prizes and coupons. If the same images line up in a row when the machine stops, the participant wins. That sounds fun, right? This tutorial guides you step-by-step on the way to create a jackpot campaign.
After you complete this tutorial, you should be well-prepared to create your own jackpot campaign in record time. This tutorial covers:
- Setting up the campaign
- Filling the slot machine with images
- Creating a custom slot machine
- Using the jackpot simulation ("This time, I will win!")
Setting up the campaign
The first step is to create a new campaign in Qualifio. Make sure you select the right type of campaign during the setup:
When you're done, go to the Welcome step to set your campaign's welcome screen (required – it is the first thing people will see when they encounter your campaign) as well as the quantity and types of prizes. Then, add a form in the Form step for the collection of contact data.
If you're all set, we can now go to the fun part!
Filling the slot machine with images
Let's start with the definition of the images:
- winning images: if a participant hits a winning image lining up three times in a row, then they win.
- losing images: if a participant hits any other images, then they lose.
Our jackpot offers 11 symbols, and it is also possible to upload your own images:
Note: Each type of prize is represented by one image.
Creating a custom slot machine
Qualifio offers predesigned layouts to define the appearance of the slot machine. But there's also an option for creating a completely customised jackpot experience!
You can create your own slot machine design using any graphic editor software such as Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator. Download our mockup →
Using the jackpot simulation ("This time, I will win!")
A cool and exciting bonus feature that you can add is the jackpot simulation.
Winning is impossible during this "free spin". The participant has to re-spin to try again – but before that, they'll have to fill out your form.
Congratulations, you completed the tutorial and created your own jackpot campaign! By using the preview mode, you can check if everything looks good:
Hit play and see if you can win! But don't worry, if you win any real prizes in the preview of the game, you can simply delete the winning participations. This can be done from the campaign statistics. Reschedule the prize and you're done! ;-)
- Schedule the prizes
- Send a branded email to all winners
- Display unique code on-screen and/or in email
- Limit participations
