General

In the 12-slice wheel of fortune, you can decide how many slices include a prize. You can, for example, offer 4 prizes and create a different coupon for each of them. You can also use a coupon for multiple points on the wheel. Once you've created your first coupon, go ahead and enter the coupon code at the top of the page. Then change the general settings:

  • Discount type: percentage discount

Continue by switching to the usage restriction tabs. Here you can decide if there is a minimum and maximum spend related to the coupon. You can also check the following boxes:

  • Check this box if the coupon cannot be used with other coupons.
  • Check this box if the coupon should not apply to items on sale. Per-item coupons will only work if the item is not on sale. Per Cart coupons will only work if there are items in the cart that are not for sale.

Wp optin wheelAdd a MailChimp API key

Before you can create a Lucky Wheel, you need to add your MailChimp API key. The free version of the WP Wheel Optin plugin only offers integration with MailChimp. If you want to link the wheel of luck with another provider, you need to upgrade to the premium version.

Choose a theme

Let's start creating the wheel! Choose a color palette of your choice. For this tutorial, we choose orange because it is well with the color palette of the Hardware Store Layout Pack .

Setup Chances

The next step in creating your four-way road registration form is choosing a percentage of success. This percentage indicates how often people earn something by spinning the wheel. In this case, every visitor who turns the wheel has 70% chance of winning a promo code.

Define the chances of successInstallation slices

Continue by configuring the 12 different slices. You can dedicate each of the slices to one of the following three options:

  • No price: the visitor does not gain anything
  • Promo code: the visitor wins a promo code
  • Link: visitors win an ebook, for example

In this example, we are using 4 of the 12 slices to add a coupon code. We also set the odds for each of these slices individually.

Form Builder Configuration

The next step will help you create the subscription form itself. You will notice that there is already an email field here. The only other type of field you can add to the registration form is a checkbox. They specifically added this type of field to make the form GDPR compliant.
