1. Instagram Random Picker

    This is the most effective free tool for randomly selecting an Instagram contest winner based on comments. Just add your post link and let the tool pick the winner. Note that you can take a screenshot of the results to prove your good luck to the participants.

The positive points

  1. Ease of use
  2. Possibility to filter out duplicates

The negative points

  1. No possibility to save the draws

2. Woobox

    Woobox is the most complete tool for setting up campaigns on Instagram via contests. And it offers the possibility to select the winners from the likes and comments easily. The advantage is that it is also available for Facebook. The constraint for the free version is 100 participants, which can be limiting if your competition is working well.

The positive points

  1. Complete management of a contest on Instagram
  2. Possibility to also manage Facebook contests

The negative points

  1. The free offer is limited to 100 participants

3. Instagram Giveaway

    Another comprehensive Instagram winner selection tool, with a new selection feature through the use of a hashtag.

    Another interesting element is that you are not limited in the number of comments participating in your first contest.

    You also have a very simple, but still useful, functionality to exclude previous winners from your contests.

The positive points

  1. Specific features for Instagram
  2. Exclude previous winners

The negative points

  1. The first contest is free, then the others are paying

4. Google random number

    Did you know that if you write “random number” in Google search, you get a tool to generate a number in the range you want?

    For example a number between 1 and 100. All you have to do is select a number from the total number of participants in your contest, and you're done!

The positive points

  1. Very easy to use
  2. Possibility to choose an interval of numbers

The negative points

  1. No other functionality other than selecting a random number
