Play the lottery for free
Filed under: Shopping & Deals
It seems like the lottery you can't lose. Freenationallotterytickets.co.uk works just like a normal cashback website, but lets you spend your balance buying lottery tickets for free.
So is it as good as it sounds?
The offerThe site works by letting users build up balances when they buy goods and services through the site. But instead of offering cashback, these balances become lottery points and can be used to buy tickets for the Lotto and Euromillions draws.
You can choose to buy single tickets - buying a single £1 lottery ticket costs 1,000 lottery points - or buy a share of any of three syndicated ticket types, which requires as little as ten points but obviously means that you would split your winnings with all others in the syndicate.
New members will receive free syndicated tickets for the next two Lotto and Euromillions draws for free when they sign up.
Collecting points is relatively easy. You could earn 2,000 points, enough for two lottery tickets, by placing your first online shopping order at Tesco through the site, for example. Other offers on the site include 24,000 points for taking out an O2 mobile broadband contract and 20,000 for joining the RAC.
Wincot Media, which owns the site, say that you don't even need to make a purchase to earn points. Recommending friends and family, completing surveys and entering competitions will also see points added to your total.
