5 Features of Random.org That You Should Use

Random.org is a site which helps in generating randomness between lists, numbers and a lot more. People use Random.org for holding drawings, lotteries and sweepstakes, to drive games and gambling sites, for scientific applications and for art and music. This site offers a lot of randomizing features such as Coin Flipper, List Randomizer etc. In this post I will share 5 features from this site which you should definitely use.

1. List Randomizer

This feature is one of the most widely used feature of Random.org. It is used a lot for the results of the giveaways that happen at different blogs. Let me tell you how this function is used. This feature allows you to arrange the items of a list in random order. The list can contain names, numbers etc. A maximum of 10,000 items are allowed. This feature can be found under Lists and Strings and Maps, Oh My! section. Here is a little demo of this feature.

2. Coin Flipper

This feature is just a fun feature(in my opinion), let me tell you how did I first used this feature. Me and my cousin were fighting for using the internet, he said that let’s do a coin toss, we didn’t had a coin nearby and no one wanted to leave the computer and get the coin, so I opened Random.org and used the Coin Flipper to decide that who will use the internet and… I lost. The option of Coin Flipper can be found in the Games and Gambling section. You can select which coin to flip from a lot of choices so that makes this feature more better. Here are the screenshots of using Coin Flipper.

3. Password Generator

This feature is very useful for setting random passwords. If you will use those random passwords in your Gmail, Facebook or other accounts, it will definitely secure your accounts more. You can generate 100(maximum) passwords at once and even select the number of characters your password should be. The minimum characters is 6 and maximum is 24. Here is the screenshot of using this tool.

4. True Random Number Generator

This is one of the most used features from Random.org. It can be simply found on the homepage of the site. You can choose the minimum and the maximum number and the feature randomly chooses a number. You can use it in a lot of ways you want. It is the most easy to use feature of the website. See the below screenshot where I have used this feature.

5. Lottery Quick Pick

Are you going to take part in a lottery? If yes you must be thinking which numbers you should choose, Lottery Quick Pick just helps you in that. It shows some random numbers which you can choose for the lottery. This option can be found under the Games and Gambling section. We can even choose which lottery to play which helps the site to decides the settings. Now, let me show you the screenshots of using this feature.

Out of all List randomizer is my favorite as it helps me to find winner, when I run a contest on my blog.

Those were the 5 Random.org tools I suggest you to try. Have you used Random.org before? If yes, which feature have you used? If no, will you use it now?
