The Hat is a great little freeware program which is designed to help you pick a random name or names from a hat. Just add the names manually or via a text file, click on the Pick button and bingo, you’ve got a winner.

This could be a superb tool for managing tricky family chore situations, choosing designated drivers on the Friday shebang, running private sweepstakes or just having fun with your friends. The thing even plays a little animation and gives a drum roll when the winner is selected. Now why can’t we use this for election times? A keeper.

 The Hat is a simple but handy little utility that offers a fun and easy way to automatically determine a random order from a list of any amount of names. You can even use it to pick individual names for raffle and sweepstakes winners, etc. or pick pairs of names for deciding random partnerships, complete with cool animation and sound effects.
