    Free postcode lottery *******

    Free postcode lottery ******* 28th Sep 12 at 3:28 PM
    Today is a local one. BT69 6AW and it's 40.

    Ring any bells with anyone here?

    EDIT: There are still a number of people asking (March 2016) what the Free Postcode Lottery is. This is a site which began as a one man operation out of a bedroom, offering a chance of free money for those adding their postcode to the database. It is now a substantially larger site, but still adheres to the same free to play principles. Some FAQ for those wanting to know more.

    1. There is no cost for playing.
    2. To sign up, you add your postcode and an email address. No other details are required.
    3. You need to check the site each day for the different draws to see if your postcode is one of those chosen.
    4. There is a bonus earned for each visit (currently 1p per day). This is also paid as part of the prize.
    5. Only the postcodes entered are in the draw. It does not simply include ALL UK postcodes.
    6. Additional parts of the site can offer extra bonuses for completing surveys.
    7. Average prizes at the moment seem to be around 400-600 for the main draw (depends on whether or not previous draws have been claimed).
    8. The site address is www.freepostcodelottery.com and this is not a referral link.
    9. If you haven't joined the site, then you cannot win.
    10. I am not Chris.

    Was wondering if your postcode gets picked in the mini draw and is claimed, does it get entered back into the main draw again?
    Not that mine has

    You don't buy tickets, you just create an account with your postcode and each day it gets entered into the draw. The catch is you only have a 24 hour window to claim the prize so to do so you must log in. There's no email sent to say you've won either.
