FreeLotto Exposed — Will You Get Paid or It’s Just a Big Free Lotto Scam?

Freelotto Exposed

FreeLotto Review ( at the moment) is a sweepstakes site that awards members cash and other prizes including cars. People register as a member and then pick their numbers. Okay, maybe it’s not quite that simple, but claims to have to date awarded over $95 million. People don’t need a credit card so how does make money and how is it able to pay winnings? That’s the big question. Get ready to have your email address flooded with promotional material, spam, and other links to sites that might cost money.

What Is FreeLotto?

The site was established in 1999 and is owned by PlasmaNet Inc., a company based in New York, USA. This sweepstakes site is not a place to purchase lottery tickets. Players can play six games daily and register up to 10 accounts.

After choosing their numbers for each game, players click on the banner ad of a sponsor and answer a multiple-choice question or click on the FreeBet button. From time to time, may ask brief questions about buying preferences. The home site is in English, but FreeLotto also has Spanish, French, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Suomi, and Swedish versions.

First Impressions

It’s evident that something isn’t right the moment you visit the FreeLotto website. The design is outdated, and it pretty much looks like the popup banners that used to plague our computer screens some time ago. Grandiose promises are made right on the homepage, and FreeLotto promises you that you can win more than one million dollars the moment you sign up. Websites that get started with such promises aren’t the most trustworthy ones (unless they can state rather clearly how such opportunities come about).

The homepage features the names and pictures of people that have supposedly become millionaires using FreeLotto. We tried to run a quick online check and figure out whether these people are real and if they’ve won money.

We went at random with Isabelle Bradley, who supposedly won 10 million dollars through the website. Interestingly enough, no media or news website has reported such a spectacular win. After all, if it were that simple to become a millionaire, the chances are that the media would jump on the bandwagon immediately.

It’s exciting to point out that the name has taken us to a website called ScamVictimsUnited (uh-oh, not a good start)! The forum features tens of accounts written by people that tried to replicate Isabelle’s success but were unable to claim their FreeLotto prizes.

Alright, maybe there weren’t any reports about Isabelle. This is why we decided to search for a second FreeLotto millionaire. According to the website, Zhivko Zhelev from Bulgaria won 100 million dollars. Now, Bulgaria is a small European country, and it has some of the lowest salaries in the EU. Such a massive winning is big news, and at least a few media should have covered it. There’s whatsoever, no information about such a millionaire.

The final thing we tried to do is reverse the Google image search for Zhivko’s photo. This approach would at least confirm that the person is real. Unfortunately, the picture appears solely on the FreeLotto website. There’s no Facebook profile or another account that features the picture. The same applies to Isabelle’s picture.

Who Can Play at lists under their rules the countries people can NOT play from. Besides underlining, no one can play from “the United States of America Department of State Trading with the Enemies Countries list”, – there are also state restrictions for some of the USA and Quebec in Canada. A few other countries are listed as not being allowed to participate under the Rules section. – The Catch

This site is supported by advertising, promotions, surveys, and other communication that funds the prizes and pays Though they don’t explicitly say they will share your email account with third parties, it is implied that there are also links to other opportunities.

It’s also interesting to point out that if you supposedly win, you don’t get any information about it through the website or your account there. No, no – that would be too simple and legitimate! Rather, you get an email notification in the form of “First name, last name, YOU HAVE WON!” Does that ring a bell? It pretty much looks like the mail lottery scams we write about so frequently.

Also, you’re supposed to wait for a transaction number that will supposedly give you access to the money. There’s no direct transfer of funds because FreeLotto doesn’t ask for your financial information and doesn’t credit money to your account. As you can see, believing that you’ll get any money in this very, very complex method is definitely a stretch of the imagination.

The website doesn’t make a single mention of the exact mechanism in which the money’s going to be paid. Its FAQ section features a convoluted explanation that doesn’t make any sense. In summary, any website that doesn’t have a specific and clearly explained payment method is to be avoided. Customer Support

The site only provides a PO Box located in the State of New York, USA. There is no phone number, email address, or live chat. All communication is conducted through an online form. As there is no need to purchase anything (or so you think), there are no payment options.

Your Inbox Under Siege works with partners and advertisers to survive. It is only natural to expect that after registering, you will be at the mercy of these companies. You’ve given them permission for the value of promises of prizes and money. You provide your name and address.  There are reports about being unable to unsubscribe once you have registered your personal details online. Some players have also said they have had continual problems even after they have canceled their membership with [].

FreeLotto Complaints

Usually, it takes a bit of work to dig up complaints about the online lottery and sweepstake vendors, but is an excellent starting point. The amount and range of complaints are quite extensive.

Some players commented they were unable to redeem a prize, as the small print in the ‘Terms and Conditions’ states that you would need to contact them with specific information at a precise time and date. Other comments include the password reset link did not respond to multiple requests and some affiliates reported that they had sent loads of traffic to but did not get paid for their efforts [].

Now about the experience. Look, what we got a couple of days ago. Oops, it looks like we have won one million pounds – NOT! 😀 Stay away from such ‘good news,’ folks! Exposed

The Bottom Line for

I don’t think I have ever seen that many diverse complaints about an online sweepstakes/lottery site. The fact that there is no direct way to contact makes this all the more serious. There is no street address or telephone number; only their online form. Worse, there is every indication that your contact details will be shared so you’ll not be sure who will/could contact you next.


It’s Free

It’s a Sweepstake


No Contact Details

No Customer Service

No Information

Information about Winners Is Largely Falsified

There isn’t a Clear Explanation about how a Prize Can Be Claimed – Long and Convoluted FAQ Section

It May Be Very Difficult, Even Impossible to Unsubscribe from Their Spam Emails

If you want to get involved in winning money online, stick with the tried and true online lottery sites, and pay for your tickets. The bottom line is that you usually get what you pay for – though in this case paying nothing might actually get you an Inbox full of spam emails.

  1. They changed the name of the lottery and added one word. And those who won did not pay the money.

  2. I won $10,000 playing Freelotto about 10 years ago.

  3. I would not recommend this site. I withdraw any comment I have made regarding the Company trading as Freelotto. I would not recommend the game. Kath Archard. Australia.

  4. I believe they are not the same people who ran the old website. Now the address is “” with different business owners and not out of NY.
    The giveaway also is that the recent winners are the names of recent winners from the old site BUT the pictures are not! A simple internet archive search reveals this. Plus I 100% know one of those guys on there who did win under the old site. That pic is not him! This new site has scam written all over it.

    I am maybe one of the oldest members of this site from the first year of their establishment and it was one of the best if not the best free lotto sites, In the last few years, they retreated to a level that I could not trust them anymore when they stopped their activities for several months until I tried by a chance a few days ago to discover that they returned functioning but not as they used to be when they were good since they mention the time when you play the ticket without any confirmation to our mail, also and this is strange without the TSN number when you want to check back your numbers that you already played. which means if you do not collect the TSN. at the same moment when you play, you can never know what was the TSN number for that game they never repeat it as I mentioned before, which gives a very bad impression that they are not honest to settle a payment, I already wrote them about this but they did not reply
    to-day I could not reach to their site to play my daily games, for unknown reason this is why I found myself at your site trying to know what is going on for Freelotto site, in General, they are not well organized as they used to be several years ago, hope they will read our comments and not to be angry but try to be more organized as they used to be when they established their honest site wishing them all the best, they used to be a hope for us to win big.
