Random Name Selector for Prize Style Animation
on Nov 30, 2016 at 11:43:40 pm

Hi all,

I am hoping somebody can help as I have been racking my brain about this, and I may be missing something simple.

I have a client that wanted me to create an animation for a prize draw. There are 16 winners and 16 prizes. The 16 winners have already been picked and are static on the screen. I need to allocate the 1 prize to each of the 16 winners in a completely random fashion, so if I run the script again it will have a completely different out come. It NEEDS be completely random for legal reasons.

What I have created already is the following. The names of the prize scramble after the name of the winner for 3 seconds then moves on to the next winners name with the animation repeating until 16 prizes have been distributed randomly. The trouble is the way I have set this up is that the same prize appears at the same time every time I run it and have been informed that it is not random enough.

Does anybody have any ideas on how to get around this? Any advice would be appreciated.
