Frequently Asked Questions

What is Free Postcode Lottery?

It's a lottery but you don't have to buy tickets. You just tell us your postcode and if it is drawn you win money. You can only collect by visiting the site, but don't worry, we can remind you. Rules of the Free Postcode Lottery.

If I win how do I claim?

A speech bubble appears with a large 'Collect' button.

Do I have to re-enter each draw?

No.  Once you have entered once, you will be entered every day.  You will still need to check the site to see if you have won though.

How can it be free to enter?

The prize money is generated by ad revenue on the site, which is itself generated by the traffic caused by users checking the draw to see if they've won.

How do I collect my winnings.

If your postcode is drawn and you visit the site to collect, the payment will be sent via PayPal to the email you registered. If that email is not registered with PayPal you will be able to sign up for a PayPal account or you can provide an alternative email address. If you do not want to sign up to PayPal we can arrange an online bank transfer or a suitable alternative (eg. Amazon e-vouchers).

Can I register more than once?

No.  In order to keep the lottery fair we insist that you only register one email and postcode. Anyone found breaking this rule will be permanently disqualified from playing.  We are constantly monitoring entries and may disqualify suspicious entries without notifying you.

Can I register on someone else's behalf?

No, whilst that would be very kind of you to do so we cannot allow this as this leaves us open to abuse and we cannot allow users to register other people's personal data onsite.  If you would like someone to enter please ask them to do so themselves. Again, anyone found breaking this rule will be permanently disqualified from playing.

What's in it for us?

Any money that we make in excess of the money that we give away is currently going towards recovering the losses that we made when the revenue was too low to fully fund the daily prize.  The hope is that one day we may make some profit.
