How to add Secret Codes to your Giveaway
A secret code is a unique entry method that requires an entrant to input a specific set of predetermined characters to redeem entries. Secret codes are created by the giveaway host at their discretion. Codes can be customized with whatever characters you choose along with the number of redemptions!
You'll find where to add secret codes under the "General" section of the entry method list.
After selecting the entry method, include a title to tell everyone what they'll need to do e.g. "Find Secret Codes on my Twitch Channel". To help users find your codes, consider adding further details in the description as to where you plan on sharing them.
When creating codes, remember not to make them too obvious! Even though you want to make sure secret codes are unique and not easy to guess, ensure that your secret codes are not too many characters. This prevents any errors in translation from your stream chat to entering the secret code on Surf Giveaways for example.
The limit on secret codes is automatically set to unlimited. This means the code can be used once by as many people that can grab it. However, setting a limit of 1, means that code is used once by one person and then it cannot be used again. Please be careful with this setting as to not lock out other users from using a code!
