This is what defines a draw. On Pickaw, we meet these two conditions and much more.
These three elements are the minimum required for us to ensure the integrity of a draw, which will take place in the best conditions. But how is that possible knowing that random and reproducible cannot coexist? That's how we introduce the concept of seed.
Every draw made on Pickaw is done in the same way, in several steps, sometimes a little technical:
For obvious reasons, we do not choose the winners of the Pickaw draw contests. The random that determines the outcome of the draws is generated via a third-party service.
We buy services every month from Random.org so that they provide us with strings to generate seeds for the draws. By using their services, we ensure that we have a truly random basis.
In this way, the contestants are certain that the winners are not designated by the contest organizer, who is himself certain that they are not designated by Pickaw.
And how do we ensure that the winners are not chosen by Pickaw or that there has been no alteration in the meantime? Thanks to the Drawchain™.
In order to govern this whole drawing process, we have devised and designed a common base that we have called Drawchain™ which means "chain of the draws", following the example of the Blockchain for the "chain of the blocks". For developers and more curious among you, we invite you to consult the (little technical) presentation of the Drawchain™ to know how it works.
