Looking at TrueGame.io, don’t worry if you feel a little confused. This is an online lottery site that has its own games, plus prizes, plus scratchies, and games. All the games use blockchain technology. The two lottery games offered are their own creation, though don’t look for specific information unless you’re willing to register on their site. Click on results and the only information is about a game that finished last year. Are you wondering why I looked any further?
Lottery Games at TRUE GAME
There are two lottery games published – Crypto Millions and Blockchain Ball that advertise one million-dollar jackpot. The only way to find out the details of these games is to subscribe. There is no information on their site, including in the terms and conditions. Though the jackpot was advertised using the $ sign, it looks like any winnings are calculated in ETH. It looks like their lottery games occur once a month. There was another Lotto 6/49 game but this seems to have finished in February.
Win Prizes at TrueGame.io
TRUE GAME has a win prizes area which works like a raffle. There is quite a range of prizes beginning with an iPhone and Samsung Galaxy S8, through Ninebot mini to Xiaomi Mi Smart Scale 2 to Vicorinox Camper II multi-knife, down to a Crypto Mug (not sure what that is). The odds of winning each of the prizes range from 750 to 1 on the higher-end items down to 20 to 1 on the lower-end items. It appears the draw takes place weekly though there is no information on when. Players also are responsible for paying for the delivery costs of any prize.
Truegame.io also offers instant win scratch cards with prizes ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 with published odds actually better the higher the prize. There is a demo feature though it’s pretty basic. There is also a “Games” area though this is still in the beta stage and hence not available. You can click on “notify me” if you are interested in knowing when they will become active but keep in mind you are clicking subscribe. This started me thinking.
Why Are They Doing It?
This is a crowd-funded site offering TGAME tokens which you have to purchase to play their games. It looks like there are 300,000 tokens to be sold with a portion of that going to the TrueGame.io team (30%). They offer an area “play for free” which gives a player a $10 gift to play but you need to fill in a form to join in meaning they get your email address. I’m wondering if that is part of what they are doing – mining for email addresses.
Getting Your Winnings at TrueGame.io
Firstly, there is no way to get the money out that you deposit here to play. Players can only withdraw any winnings from their ETH wallet. Ah, and in the FAQ, it says that withdrawal of funds to your bank account and credit cards will only be available after the 15th of February 2018. I wonder why they haven’t amended this to say this function is available. In their terms and conditions, there is a noted limit of 0.1 ETH minimum withdrawal and they say the time to process the request is less than 24 hours.
Who Can Play?
If you’re a resident of Costa Rica, Curaçao, the Dutch Caribbean Islands, France, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, or the United States, you can’t play here. It seems open to everyone else. Players also have to be over the age of 21.
Who Is TrueGame?
This site is registered in Costa Rica with a snail mail and email address. There is also an online form. There are no phone numbers and no live chat. There is also no information on how quickly they will respond to any questions. There is a heap of pictures of their advisors and their team on the website but no contact details. There are LinkedIn links to most people.

Is TrueGame Legit?
Not a chance! There is just too much information not available here. This includes the cryptocurrency (they call tokens) that they are using.
Truegame.io gets a thumb’s down. It looks like the site is a work in progress and maybe they’ll build out better information that might answer some of the basic questions players need answering to play.
