Frequently Asked Questions

What is Free Postcode Lottery?

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

If I win how do I claim?

A large 'Collect' button appears.

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. It works like a free newspaper, or free-to-air TV channel like ITV.

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 I 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 I insist that you only register one email and postcode. Anyone found breaking this rule will be permanently disqualified from playing.  I am 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 I cannot allow this as this leaves the site open to abuse and I 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 I make in excess of the money that I give away goes towards reimbursing me for the costs of hosting the site and the time I spend answering questions for people who can't be bothered to read the FAQs (Well done by the way!)

Who are you?

I am Chris Holbrook.
