Call me a coward, but I do not condone gambling or taking any risk when it comes to business opportunities. But I have recently discovered a free of charge way to earn with the lottery, which I would like to make you aware of.


How to make money with the lottery

Yes, I am not kidding you when I say that you can earn with the lottery.  Admittedly I’m not talking millions, but rather a few hundred pounds at a time (or dollars, or whichever monetary currency goes in your country).  And no, it is not a guaranteed regular winning.  At the end of the day, it is called lottery for a reason, as it can only guarantee for as long as you win randomly.  But it certainly is free of charge, and for this reason if not any other good one, it is worth playing it.  Because you don’t have to loose anything!!!  Yes, you’ve guessed right: I’m talking about the FREE POSTCODE LOTTERY!!!


How does it work

The name is self-explanatory.  Every day the Free Postcode Lottery draws a a postcode randomly from the country, for a stake of some £300 or thereabouts.  If you have registered that you live in that postcode, you win.

Along with the main draw, the Free Postcode Lottery has other minor daily draws that you can take part in, albeit for a lower winning – these are survey draws (but you can take part even without taking 1 or 2 question surveys) or the video draw, where you listen to a video of an emerging singer in order to have the winning postcode revealed, or other draws.


Less money, more chances

As mentioned, the potential winnings are far from the wealthy ones of weekly national lotteries.  And, if by any chance your neighbours have also registered and claim the winning when your joint postcode is drawn, unbeknown to each other, you share the draw.

But the beauty of this type of lottery lays in a few simple advantageous facts:

  1. it’s drawn daily, hence increasing chances;
  2. it’s down to the reality of you living at that postcode;
  3. even if other participants are registered at the same postcode as you, often enough you end up winning the whole jackpot, as most people forget to check if they are winners from the reminder email you get sent every day.

If nobody claims the winning within 24 hours, the money at stake goes to add to the next day draw, making the jackpot higher.

Last but not least, you do not have to pay to take part!!!


Where does the money come from

The most immediate thing that will strike you about this lottery is that its website is packed with ads.  And that’s where the money comes from.  The Free Postcode Lottery relies solely on advertisements.  As mentioned before, you don’t have to pay a dime!!! Although the winning criteria for the main draw is in the fact that you must live at the winning postcode drawn on the day, with all the other draws you in fact access survey companies or video promoting companies – those very same companies that pay the Free Postcode Lottery for the privilege of advertising on its site.

One thing is for sure: we participants do not fund it!!


Who can take part

There are only a few qualifying criteria to take part in the Free Postcode Lottery: you must be over the age of 18, and you must live in UK.

Please do not mistake the Free Postcode Lottery with the People Postcode Lottery, which requires for you to purchase tickets.  The Free Postcode Lottery is FREE OF CHARGE!!

Otherwise, absolutely everyone can take part – no matter which postcode you live in, whether it is Wales, or Scotland, everyone can give it a try.

Admittedly the only restriction I can think of is that you have to have an internet connection.  Like all things in this time and age, in order to take part you must register online on to its website.  Likewise, as mentioned, every day the Free Postcode Lottery sends you a reminder email inviting you to enter their website to find out whether your postcode has been drawn.

I expect long gone are those days where you could check the winning numbers of a lottery on the daily paper!!  Mind you, I believe some papers still do so.  But then again, those lotteries that publish their winning combination on paper have a different way of financing the business, which is funded through the purchase of tickets.  The Free Postcode Lottery relies solely on you visiting the website – this increases traffic to the website, makes it more appealing to potential businesses that will want to advertise on its pages, and will then pay the advertising space.  In a way, with a the Free Postcode Lottery, you are the customer of a behind-the-scene affiliate business – and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it!!!


Pros and Cons

Let me get the negative points out of the way before concentrating on the winning side of this type of lottery (pardon the pun!!).

I believe I have a pretty fast internet connection, unlimited data use and more.  Nevertheless, at times going through the Free Postcode Lottery pages is very slow.  And I expect the reason may be due to the enormous amount of graphic loaded on its pages by the advertisers.

Even so, going through the motions of checking the daily draws is never too painfully and exasperatingly slow.  Yes, the pages may take a few seconds longer than usual to load, but it does not detract from the fun.

And again, the winning will never be in the region of hundreds of thousands, but it is still a few hundreds, which are still a good pocket money figure.  Which you will have earned by just checking a daily email.  Not bad at all!!

One final point to mention is that this particular lottery is currently available and applicable to UK postcodes only.  I have searched for similar schemes outside of UK.  The only free of charge lottery I have come across for US residents, or for people living in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand and South Africa is BoxLotto.  With this lottery, you choose 6 random numbers on each ticket, you can play up to 30 tickets per week and once a week you receive an email to tell you if you have won.

Again BoxLotto is indeed free of charge, but the lucky strike is purely randomly based on whether you choose the winning numbers, and to me it detracts from the fun of seeing your own postcode appear on the winning draw – again, I believe the concept of making a postcode a winner is far more fun.


Talking of affiliate

Did you also know that you can earn extra money by referring viewers to the Free Postcode Lottery?  Yes, the added perk is that you can earn up to £200 in bonus, which is payable to you when you introduce somebody to the website, and the somebody registers and keeps checking their account regularly every day.

In other words, if you follow this link: Free Postcode Lottery, and if you end up joining the actual lottery, I shall be earning a tiny penny every time that you visit the website to check of you are one of the winners of the day.  This costs nothing to you, but in the long run it will accrue me a little bit of extra pocket money.

You may ask what the big fuss it is to go through all this effort for a penny per visit.  Am I having you on?!?!?  I am not even going to start counting how many days of one of you checking their lottery account it would take me to put together £200.  But if it is not one of you, but many of you joining through this post, then the process of putting together a bit of extra money does no longer sound as long and painful.

And you don’t need to have a website to promote the Free Postcode Lottery.  You are given a unique link to your account, which you then can insert in any of your social media messages to invite your followers to join in.

So, what are you waiting for?  Join Free Postcode Lottery to be a winner and to earn by referring others!!!


Too good to be true

Some people may question whether all this is too good to be true.  Let me break this news to you: Free Postcode Lottery is NOT a scam!!!

Testimonials vouch to the fact that this lottery is a genuine affairs.  And accolades are documented both on their Facebook page and in other social media forums.

In UK this lottery is not the only free of charge one.  Others make their money through advertising too, but this lottery has the added element of fun, by building your expectations to the realistic possibility that it will be your postcode to be drawn today!  So much so that Money Saving Expert also endorses Free Postcode Lottery.

I am not sure that, if this lottery had not been tested as true and realistic, Martin Lewis of Money Saving Expert would have chanced risking his reputation!!


My verdict

I have kept banging on for the whole of this review about how I find this type of lottery purely fun.  Its simple and straightforward formula, and that fact that it relates to the postcode of where you actually live, the fact that it is free of charge, it all combines in my opinion to create a bit of innocent, not mind blowing, fun.

You don’t have to worry as to whether you have chosen the winning combination of random numbers.  The responsibility of you becoming a winner is not on your shoulders, but down to sheer luck.  And it doesn’t matter if all you win is a couple hundreds pounds – the fun outruns the thirst of big winning by far.  Notwithstanding the fact that, as Free Postcode Lottery is only restricted to UK, where there are only so many postcodes, chances become higher.

The winning combination with Free Postcode Lottery is in the sharing.  Not only by referring people to this lottery, you can earn up to £200, but the more people register as living at the same postcode as yours, the more the chances of your postcode to be drawn.

For however little inspiring the winnings may be, I highly recommend having a bit of fun with Free Postcode Lottery.  Join in the fun with me!!!

  1. This is a really awesome and thorough review of the free postcode lottery.

    From your review, I’m sure this is a legit business. But since it requires people to check their emails or whatsoever everyday, not many will invests time into this for the long term. People may just join for a while then leave. This is in addition to the small amount of money that they might get. Am I correct?

    Another thing is that how does this online lottery choose the winners? I would like to know how they came to decide the winner or what system/software/method they use.

    1. I can’t tell you about the software used, Jerry, nor do I think the owner Chris Holbrook would be happy to tell any of us. But as far as ‘choosing’ the winner, the winners are all the participants that will have registered at that specific postcode that is drawn that day, provided they claim. So, for argument sake, if my postcode is drawn today and I check the website, it will show me the number of winners that are registered and claim to live at my postcode – say 4, of which I am 1 – and the number of people out of the 4 that have claimed so far – to claim, I have to click on the Claim Now button. So, even if 4 people registered at my postcode, but only I claim the jackpot, I will win it all.
      And that, I suspect, answers your initial question. Is it worth checking your email every day for such a little amount of money? Well, with this lottery, it is really perseverance that is rewarded at the end of the day. The website are announil an auto-checking system still to be launch, but for which they are planning to charge £1 a mont. Personally, as I check my emails every evening, I’d rather stick to the traditional manual way.

  2. Given the current political turmoil, this is one of the more positive aspects about living in the UK right now 🙂
    Thanks for the detailed and unbiased assessment.

  3. What a great way to have fun playing the numbers. I live in Canada and will have to look into BoxLotto. Over here we just buy tickets, so many draws per week it’s crazy. People can go broke just buying tickets. Enjoyed your post very much and I wish you the best of luck winning the lottery and getting referrals. It does sound like a good time. Thanks for this, Peter.

    1. I agree Peter, the focus here should be certainly not on making tons of money, but in the fun aspect of it – a little something to look forward to at the end of every day when you catch up with your emails.
      And of course I wish you luck with finding a similar winning formula in Canada!!

  4. Hi Giulia,

    Thanks for this review. I have to admit I think I was one of the “confused” since I thought you could win 1000’s with the Postcode Lottery. Maybe I’m confusing it with the People Postcode Lottery. The fact that it’s free is great and drawn daily! There in nothing to lose in my book 🙂
    I always wondered how this was funded so thanks for enlightening me.
    My relatives in the UK would be interested in this.
    Do you have to enter the draw every day or once you register is that it forever?

    1. I think you are right Craig, the People Postcode Lottery promises wealthier winnings, but you have to pay for the privilege. With this, the winnings are smaller but it is free of charge. And absolutely not, you don’t have to enter every day – once you are registered, your postcode stands a daily chance to be drawn. In fact it’s explained in the FAQ section that the more people are registered as living at a same postcode, the more the chances of that postcode to be drawn!

  5. I have done the free postcode lottery three times and have luckily won at least once! But I quit after that since I think my luck has ran out haha. For those who really want to try out their luck, I suggest they read this article first before trying it out so they know what they are getting themselves into. It’s a really good service where people stand a chance of winning.

    1. I am glad you were that lucky Nico. But yes, I agree with you, as this lottery is based on postcodes, it appears you stand a better chance of winning, and more than once, however many postcodes there are in UK – not as many as the infinite 6-number combinations of national lotteries, I hope!!

  6. Wow! Living in the states I have never heard of this. I wanted to signup immediately until I read more of your review. As an affiliate marketer I appreciate how honest you are about the pennies you make. You have a very nice and trusting site. That will take your far
    – Cheers

    1. Thanks for appreciating my efforts Midas, really much appreciated!!
      And yes, unfortunately this type of lottery has not been launched in the States. Or at least, not yet!! Believe you me, I check my chances every day, and it is good and innocent fun. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone borrowed the idea and extended it to USA. Who knows, it could be you!! 🙂
