Free-lottery Exposed — Is It Really FREE?
There is a part of me that wanted to jump in and play Free-lottery.net just to see how many emails I would end up getting and what they were actually advertising. This is another free lottery site that offers a free daily and weekly draw. It also looks like they offer a bunch of other little prizes but then I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s go take a look.
Games at Free-lottery.net
Free Lottery holds a £1,000 daily and £1 million weekly draw. The daily draw closes at 17:30 for a 19:30 GMT draw. The weekly draw is done on Mondays, and closes at 12:00 with the draw at 14:00. Winning numbers are posted on their site. Players choose six numbers or use quick pick from 1 to 75. To be in the weekly draw, you have to have played a minimum of three daily draws before Monday.
Is 24Lottos one of the best lotteries in the UK?
Free Lottery and Winning
Winning lottery tickets must be claimed from Free Lottery within thirty days of the draw “to start the process”. Payment is made by check and delivered by registered post. One of the terms and conditions you agree to in registering at Free-Lottery.net is that you will participate in any publicity if you win. That includes a photograph and potentially a quote. They also do say that larger prizes might be presented in person but they don’t say whether they will fly you to get them.
Who Can Play at Free-lottery.net?
Well, it doesn’t say it in their rules but according to Free-lottery.net thanks to customer service, you don’t have to be a resident of the UK to play and win. Players must be 18 years of age or older “except employees of the Promoter, their families, agents or anyone professionally connected with the Promotion”. You can only have one account and one lottery ticket per draw.
How Do They Do It – It’s Free
Okay, you did pick up on the word “promoter” and “promotion” right? Technically they say that their lottery is guaranteed by an insurance company. But – yes the big but – they also say prizes are “paid for through advertising and other features available on the website”. One face value looking at their site, that’s a link to playing real lotteries online. They say the only emails you will receive are “as and when they’re needed” “generally you’ll receive emails to remind you to log in” and “updates to the site”. Hmmm, that sounds like a really good excuse for a heap of spam.
Free-lottery.net and Customer Service
Scrolling through Free Lottery’s Facebook page, the only winners we saw were £20 Amazon winners. Guess Amazon is one of their promoters. It also appears that they play a bunch of other little games all thanks to different promoters. Free-lottery.net also uses Twitter. They have a snail mail address in the UK and an email address. No online form, no phone numbers, and no live chat. There isn’t a lot of information on who these folks are, but their ‘promoter and data controller’ is Take That Ltd. which is a marketer and web design company in the UK.

Is Free Lottery Legit?
Free-lottery.net doesn’t get a thumbs up or a thumbs down. If you have the time to play, it could be a way to win bits and pieces amongst the advertising you receive. Me, I think I’ll stick to playing some of those mega jackpots like US Powerball.
I signed up in November and haven’t had any emails yet. When you register it’s really easy to select how much contact you want to get from them.
Also noticed this week that they have started giving away a bonus £50 prize every Monday. They announce winner names so seems legit to me, hoping I get lucky next time!
Can’t stop playing – so easy!
Straight-forward enough to use and straight-forward enough to remove yourself from their email list if you want.
Looks like they’ve had a few competition winners other than the Amazon vouchers. Pretty decent prizes too.
Main point is it all looks free and like a fun game to pass the time.
I found this site’s experience very boring…
Well, we are all different, but when you state something like you did, it would be nice to say why do you feel that way 🙂
