Lucktastic Exposed — Can You Make Some Cash with It?
Looking at Lucktastic (assuming the conceptual use of words such as Luck is Fantastic) it all seems fairly simple and straightforward. This is an application for Android and iPhones for playing scratch games online. Even better, it’s free. So what’s the catch?
Where Do I Start at Lucktastic?
Of course, the first thing players have to do is download the App on their phone, set up an account, and then start to play. Ah – the catch! You have to be a US citizen to play. More on why shortly. Let’s go back to the games. Players win tokens that can be used to get more scratches. The token value (i.e. winnings) is between $1 to $100. What a player wins is divided into what can be used to redeem and what can be used to cash in. It appears, that cashing in means trading that part of your wallet for coupons. One article referenced Amazon Gift Cards though it does look like there are other advertisers that provide coupon rewards.

More at Lucktastic
Consecutive day play is encouraged with the US $5,000 a US $10,000 scratch cards. To “unlock” the US $5,000 scratch card, players must play five days consecutively. Ditto for the US $10,000 scratch card but for ten days. Oops, there is also a US $25,000 sweepstakes that have terms and conditions of play.
How to Claim Winnings on Luckstatic
Players can actually cash out their account as long as it is over $10 either by receiving a check (7 – 10 business days) or using a system called Dwolla. To activate this, click on the Four Leaf Clover. It will open a menu of options. If you don’t have a Dwolla Account, it will walk you through the process of opening one. Dwolla is a US platform for money transfers. It looks pretty professional though it does look like you have to be a US citizen to register.
Please note! The Lucktastic scam notifications have nothing to do with the official app!

How Does Lucktastic Do It?
Ah, the catch! Firstly, let’s go back to the ole you have to be a US citizen to play. This is because the site is funded by advertising. It doesn’t appear that this translates into receiving spam but instead prior to playing the scratch card, players are offered advertising to view. You do have a choice on whether you have to read before you play and it does appear that whether you do or not, does not affect winning. But, keep in mind – the more tokens you cash to play, the more advertising you are offered.
Surfing around and reading some of the comments players have made, it does sound like the App itself might be a little sluggish, and/or your ability to play depends on how new your phone is. As I am not a US citizen, I couldn’t register to play, I did not find this out firsthand.
Lastly at Lucktastic
Given that you are not actually giving these guys any credit card details (it is free) and the game itself is very straightforward, there can’t be that many questions. But if you do, the operator of the site is Jump Ramp Games out of New York with a snail mail and email address, plus a Twitter account. There are no phone numbers. There are no terms and conditions with any information being provided only in their FAQ.

Is Luckstatic Legit?
If you’re into playing scratch cards (I admit it, I am) and you are a US Citizen in the US (and I am not), then this could be some good fun and winnings though it’s not going to be that mega jackpot. Then again, it is free. Lucktastic gets 5.5 out of 10.
Zero stars. Biggest waste of time. Tried it for over a year, built up more than enough tokens for almost any gift card. Tried to cash in and got nothing. They eventually took all the accumulated tokens and I got nothing but all that wasted time. Some reviews say it’s not a scam, but they cannot prove me wrong when I tell you it is!
I had close to 100,000 tokens and they offered just a $5 gift card when I had enough for two $10 gift cards, a magazine subscription, and I had a cash balance I couldn’t redeem for gift cards. They think it’s ok to steal tokens and put them in some BS contest that I won’t win.
I had almost 600,000 points and they shut the game down on me. Thanks for a lot of time wasted. Was counting on that Amazon gift card to help with some home repairs
Report the dishonest activity to the BBB. Just because an app is shutting down doesn’t mean it’s ok to rip people off and give them a fraction of what was earned or they deserve.
This app is a total scam and they should be ashamed of themselves.. But they’re not I’m sure. No stars if I could.
Total scam in my opinion. I will try until the end because that is who I am. I really hope someone starts a class action suit against scams like this.
I couldn’t agree with you more. Just because the app is shutting down, it doesn’t make it ok to rip people off by giving a fraction of the value for tokens instead of the full value for gift cards. I would report them to the BBB. Everyone who gets less than what is earned should be entitled to compensation.
