Interactive Scratch and Win Landing Page Tutorial

In:

I recently worked on a project that involved creating an online scratch & win landing page. The scratch & win landing page was going to be used as an interactive way to offer discounts to customers for an upcoming conference. Here’s an overview of what I created and a template so you can build your own interactive scratch & win landing page.

How it works

The customer receives an email containing a link to the scratch & win landing page. The customer is taken to the landing page where they can scratch off their discount code for the conference. When the page is loaded it will show 1 of 2 discount codes or say ‘try again next time’. The discount codes are completely random, so no data work is necessary.

How to create your own scratch & win

The Setup

Graphics/Images

There were 5 required graphics for the landing page.

1. The overlay image

The overlay image is used to hide the discount code when the page has loaded.

2. Discount image

The second image contains one of the the discount codes and the amount of the discount for the conference.

400

3. Another discount image

The third image contains another discount code for the conference.

5

4. Try again image

The last required image was a ‘better luck next time’ image.

5. A coin image

The Page

The page is built with HTML, CSS and jQuery plugin.

CSS

The CSS is pretty basic. The scratch pad needs to have set a set width and height in order to work.

The HTML

The HTML is simple. There’s a scratch container and a scratch pad which will contain the images for the scratch & win. The images will be added via jQuery in the next step. There’s also a section that contains the promo code (in plain text so the user can copy & paste) and the call-to-action to register for the conference. This section will be shown when the scratch card is more than 50% scratched.

The JavaScript

The javascript is where all the functionality for the scratch & win is.

First, I setup 5 variables. This is where all the promo code images are defined.

  1. promoCode: which will contain the plain-text promo code based on the randomized image.
  2. bg1: Contains the image path for the $400 off image
  3. bg2: Contains the image path for the $500 off image
  4. bg1: Contains the image path for the “Sorry try again” image

Next, I added some code to randomize the scratch & win image and based on that image, display the corresponding plain-text promo code.

Lastly, the jQuery plugin code needs to be added.

Here’s the final JavaScript

Putting it all together

    This is exactly what I'm looking for. Is there anyway to stop a person from just refreshing the page or clicking the link twice and getting a different result?

      Hi Dallas, Glad you found it useful. You could always store a cookie with the value of the scratch and win. That way when they refresh it will pull from the cookie instead of generating a new value.
