Random item picker tool What is a random item picker?
This tool randomly picks one or more items from the given items. You can pick a number from a list of numbers, or you can pick a string from a list of strings, or you can pick a name from a list of names. You can even use this tool to pick winning entries. If you input all the winning entries on the left, you can choose a winner easily and it will be shown on the right. If you're picking multiple items, then for your convenience, we've added an option to change how items get separated. Super useful!
