The Free Postcode Lottery

Do you want to win free money? For most people the answer to this question is ‘yes’ – and the Free Postcode Lottery will let you do just that. Each day, you have the chance to win at least £80.

To register, you provide the site with your email address and UK postcode. You then log in every day to find out which postcode has won that day. If it’s yours, then you win the jackpot, which can be paid to you by Paypal.

If it’s not yours, then you can still accumulate a bonus. For every day that you log in, one penny is added to your bonus – if you win the jackpot, then this is added to your winnings. Because you need to log in every day to see if you’ve won, you should be able to build up £1 after just over three months. There’s also an additional opportunity to win extra money with the Stackpot which is refreshed twice a day at 9am and 9pm, and you can refer friends for extra cash as well.

Unclaimed jackpots roll over – in the screenshot, the jackpot is £140 because the winners from the day before didn’t claim it. It’s got as high as £700 before. The jackpot recently increased from £70 to £80, as the lottery now covers 8% of all UK postcodes. Presumably there will be another increase at 9%.

The lottery is free because all of the income comes from advertising on the site – and you’ll see that it is a particularly advert heavy web site. But because people visit it daily, those adverts get a lot of views, hence why it is able to give so much money away.

If you live in Britain and fancy a chance of winning some cash, then it’s worth signing up. You’ll just get one daily email reminding you to check the draw – no other spam is sent. Here’s my referral link, if you want to give it a try.
