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.
You are good scram artists…hopefully you get shut down…No star!!!
Trash been with them for years they went down hill. I use to get gift cards before they switched to the bs timer decided to cut ties. SCAM – No stars if I could
Games are fun, addicting. However, it would be nice to actually WIN the prizes.
Trying to get an amazon gift card. I have enough points, but I keep getting the same message saying they have all been claimed. Now they are supposedly available, but every time I put my (correct) information in, I get an error code.
I have so many tokens I can get 2 100 dollar gift cards but they put up a clock when they will be available and the clock runs down and the cards go right back to a long waiting period again with no one winning them
Lucktastic is a fraudulent app. They trick people to play with the lie of giving you gift cards for points you earn from watching their ads. While they get paid off if your back from the ads that they get you to watch, they conveniently NEVER in fact have these gift cards in stock. Therefore you can never actually obtain these gift cards. I played for a year, accumulated 500,000 points, yet I’ve checked daily for over 5 months and no gift cards are ever available. This is the definition of a scam. They should not allow people to play or people to sign up if they don’t have the product available. This is by definition fraud. The FBI is being notified on the day of this notice. They will be shut down soon.
I hope so because me the same thing over 890,000 tokens
Same here! Gift cards that they say are available, still aren’t available! Huge SCAM!!
