The All Things Apple Giveaway has ended, and after sifting through 26,688 entries, we finally have our winners and here’s how we did it:
1. We unstacked our 26688 emails containing the phrase “All Things Apple Giveaway” (12,000-13,000 each) to create over a thousand pages of entries with 20 entries per page
2. We picked two sets of numbers each (a set consists of a random page and a random email on that page) using random.org.
3. Then we cross-referenced winners with the email forms that we required to enter the giveaway to verify the eligibility of the winners.
4. After that, once we had four winners, we assigned a random number to correspond with each prize and picked random numbers to match the winners with their prizes.
The way we went about picking the winners was secure and 100% random, and it ensured that everyone who entered had a fair chance at winning.
