HAVE GOT 130000 POINTS. NO PRIZES WORTHWHILE EVER AVAILABLE......NO ANSWER TO QUESTIONS. TOLD TONIGHT QUESTION SERVICE NOT AVAILABLE TOTAL WASTE OF TIME
I've doing Bananalotto every day along with the Daily Draw, another similar web site since about 2000. I did win a £10 prize in the very early days, & 2 or 3 1 dollar prizes from DDraw which I couldn't cash, instead I opted for them to go to charity, but that was all, & never won anything since. I now have about 170,000 Ban points. I have been looking at what I can redeem my points for for over a year. Amazon or Paypal vouchers was the only thing which took my fancy. These "Prizes" are always "Unavailable". I did email Bananlotto three times & they did answer every time, saying they become available every month. I think that must be the main competition...just to spot when they become available, if ever........I've never seem them become available. So, after all this time, I have decided not to waste my time any more. I'm pulling the plug on both. It's just a habit I will have to break....can you buy "Patches" for that?
I don't know what the chances of winning with Banalotto are. However I do know that the 'bananapoints' are a total waste of time! After accumulating over 55,000 points it was disappointing to learn that there is no realistic way of exchanging them for anything of value. My membership was cancelled today.
I have collected over 50 thousand points, I can't redeem them because there is nothing more than bits of rubbish to collect, I contacted Banalotto, gues what, No Reply
Despite winning £10 in December last year, I am still awaiting my cheque. I have made contact on numerous occasions hoping the cheque would eventually be sent. Does anyone else share this experience and how do you go about reporting this to the relevant authorities?
ALTHOUGH THE LOTTO IS FREE, THE PRIZE GAMES BEING OFFERED FOR YOUR POINTS ARE AVAILABLE FOR FREE JUST BY SEARCHING THE INTERNET
Having played Bananalotto for a few years, gathered many thousand points, had no luck on the tombola, had no luck winning anything I decided to use the points to win things. I won a DVD which took 90 days to arrive but was quite pleased with it. I then decided to go for a digital alarm clock taking 20,000 points, description: "With this nice and elegant desk top you will always be on time! Desktop or travel alarm clock and digital photo frame. Clear, bright 1.5" photo panel with manual image selection." It didn't work - the instructions were in French, there was no mention of a battery so I tried to open it with 4 tiny screws on the clock side - couldn't get in without breaking the plastic. The photo side was just a tiny square insert with a clear plastic cover - not digital as described,but I kind of expected that. I contacted Banalotto and their answer was that it was nothing to do with them as it was sent from amazon. I haven't bothered persuing this as I doubt if I would get anywhere. Has anyone else won this clock as I would like to know if they have had the same problem?
Bananalotto.co.uk is an interesting site because on the surface it really seems as if you are getting something for nothing, but on closer inspection, that is not the case. I have been with them for over a year, and at first I thought to myself, hey, this is so easy, I must be a big winner within a very short space of time, but no....I still await that win! I built up my points to nearly 13,000 through doing 10 grids every day religiously, having put Bananalotto into my toolbar favourites so I would not miss out one single day, and yes, it takes only a few minutes to click on six numbers over 10 grids every day, and then a banner each after every grid so it is not difficult! You win points, and you build up these in your account but the clever bit is that you can redeem your points for lots of different quite interesting things. If you would like a banana pen, or a fridge magnet, or some desktop wallpaper or a calendar or maybe a book with some recipes in it or a DVD, then save up your points and redeem them. I decided to redeem mine for a £5 voucher, but you need 25,000 points to do this and I worked out at my present rate that it would take me over a year to do this, so it was not worth it, and my husband mentioned that I should try for some easier things. D'you know when you are frantically searching the place for a pen and you can't find one, well bananalotto pens are the answer....so I thought! I redeemed my points for only 3000 per pen, in July and I am still awaiting my flood of bananalotto pens to arrive in the post. It is not the strike, I think, but rather the speed at which they work at...I was told my goods would be sent out within 90 days but so far, not a bean, but to be fair the 90 days are not quite up, so I will report back if I get them! I hope so, otherwise all my hard work will be for nothing. I do feel, also, that there should be some greater chances to win, for example a £10 cheque, or some cash, but I hardly ever see many winners names on there who have won any larger amounts of money than a cheque for £10 - no millionaires like on the lottery site, so you could say its harder to win bananalotto than it is to win the national lottery, and they say the odds of winning that are 14 million to one - so how hard does it make it to win on bananalotto then??? One's mind boggles!!
I joined this website after reading the many positive reviews of it on here. I've only been a member for about a week now and so this review comes from a newbie perspective!
WHAT IS BANANALOTTO?
Bananalotto is an online free game giving web users a chance to win up to £100,000 every day, as well as many other prizes, simply by completing daily online lottery grids. It makes it's money from the various advertising banners it displays on its website.
EASY TO USE?
From a newbies point of view, I'm finding it very easy to use. As with most websites like this, you have to register before being able to play.
The website has tabs with the following headings:
"play", "prizes", "winners"," tell a friend" and "Bananagames". These are all fairly self explanatory and make it easy to navigate around the website. Play is the main tab you'll use as this is where you'll click to access the daily lottery grids. There are 10 grids a day to complete and you can chose random numbers or pick your own. Being able to pick random numbers is particularly useful because it can get very boring picking 10 sets of numbers every day. Prizes are also clearly listed so that you know exactly what you're playing for.
POINTS AND PRIZES
The main prize on offer is £100,000 every day. To win this you have to match 5 winning numbers plus a bonus number on the 10th grid played. 6 winning numbers on game grids 1 to 9 will get you £1,000 and 6 winning numbers on the 10th game grid will bag you £10,000. It's pretty unlikely that you'll bag the top prizes but the same could be said for any lottery really and this one costs nothing to play so you have nothing to lose. 5 winning numbers on game grids 1 to 9 will win you £10, or doubled to £20 if you manage to get 5 numbers on the 10th grid.
4 or less numbers will win you points which can be redeemed for prizes. These prizes range from Banana Lotto pens and key rings to DVD's. You'll have to be patient and build up points daily because even low end prizes such as magnets will set you back 3500 points!
ADVANTAGES AND DISAVANTAGES
You have to have a lot of patience to build up enough points to redeem prizes. It means visiting and playing the 10 grids every day. This effort seems like poor compensation for a DVD or cookbook, and even these prizes require you to reach over 1,000 points which isn't easy.
There's a really annoying system of having to click on advertising banners in order to submit your numbers. You have to do this for all 10 lottery grids. As a newbie I found this system confusing and I found myself searching for a "submit" button or something. To make it worse, the banners aren't even useful or particularly interesting. It just seems to be the same 4 banners continuously and it's irritating having to keep clicking them and then closing them down straight after.
Bananlotto's biggest advantage is that it is free to play. Also, having 10 lottery grids to play each day makes you feel like you've got a really good chance of winning, or at least building up points quicker. I also play a free online lottery called Daily Pounds which only lets you enter 2 lottery grids a day making it harder to build up points.
http://www.dailypounds.com/index.php - Daily Pounds is another free lottery website and an alternative to Bananalotto. I play them both and enjoy them both for different reasons!
I came across bananalotto.co.uk via an email link, and thought it was just another pointless scam. I was kind of wrong. What made me have a look was the fact that it said you didn't have to pay anything at all, and indeed, you don't. It is a rather simple way to amass points, potentially win some money, and maybe get a prize once in a while.
The website is colourful and cheery, but is essentially an advertising tool that relies on links being clicked on loads of times for it to gain its money. To sign up you only have to give minimal details, and then you follow a link sent to you via email and start playing.
The main part of the site is the lottery style grid, where you have 10 games to choose 6 numbers, which then get entered for the draw. If your numbers match those that are drawn, then you win points or even some cash. To date, I haven't won any cash, but have been on there a little over a month and am well on my way to the first prize in terms of points amassed.
The scoring system gives you points if you get up to 4 numbers right, and then the chance to win a cash sum with anything higher. Of course, I have matched 4 quite a few times, but never 5! Realistically, expect to get points and if you get any cash, regard it as a bonus. Theoretically, you can win up to £100,000 if you get 5 correct numbers and the bonus ball on the 10th grid, but I wonder if this has ever happened....
When you're choosing your numbers, you get the option to pick them yourself or go for a random selection. Once you have chosen you then have to click on a link to a site, the homepage for which will open up in a new window. A small box then appears and you click on it to take you back to the game. These sites are harmless, such as the e-bay website or a well known mobile network company. It's not a link to some dodgy site or anything.
So, I guess ultimately, it's a minute or two out of my time each day to play what is like a daily lottery, with 10 FREE plays! Sure, it's unlikely I'll win anything other than points, and it'll likely take me a while to amass anything near enough for a decent prize (get about 100 or less points per day, and a DVD is about 14,000 points!!) but it's fun and it's something I look forward to checking each morning to find out how I've done. I recommend giving it a go. For those of you who just haven't the time, it's understandable, as the chances of getting a cash sum or loads of points on a regular basis are remote.
An enjoyable way to potentially win points or cash.
bananalotto.co.uk -Are you feeling lucky today?
I wobbled across this UK based internet lotto site around three months ago knowing that it is very renowned .The site claims' A daily chance to play for £1 million and other prizes'.
Registration is very simple as it only asks you to fill up few details pertaining to your profile and demographic details. I find the site very interactive and colourful with very easy to use menu.
The procedure of playing game is very straightforward-Each day you can play 10 grids with each grid having six numbers to pick from.If you are too lazy to select numbers or do not trust your instinct you have the option to go for a random selection.
It would be unfair if you dream about £1 million alone without giving anything back to the site.Do not frown I was referring to the banner ads which you need to click once you pick your lucky number and the process has to be repeated for all grids.
What is next ? You get a mail next day confirming your winning points depending on the match. Of course you get something for matching even one digit in any grid.
My own experience has a bitter one as I have never won a single pie from this.My day dreaming of earning some quick quid has been meeting a dire fate everyday till now.However I have got some comfort by grabbing a banana pen and a CD voucher which is not as enchanting as quick money.I
I will be probably chasing my £1 million pipe dream for few more months and then call it a day.....
You can explore your chances for few months but my suggestion is not to get addicted as you have better options to earn money.
I have been a member of Bananalotto now for around 2 months and I'm around 3,000 or so points towards my first reward.
The site is free to join, you can register & then play 10 lottery grids per day. You choose 6 numbers out of 49 and then have to click on one of the adverts provided to confirm your grid. Once the advert is loaded you can select a box on a pop-up which will send you back to carry on with your selecting the numbers for your next grid.
The prizes for the grids are as follows:
1 Number 10 Points
2 Numbers 25 Points
3 Numbers 40 Points
4 Numbers 150 Points
5 Numbers (Grid 1-9) £10 Cash
5 Numbers (Grid 10) £20 Cash
5 Numbers in right or wrong order + bonus number on 10th grid £100,000 Cash
6 Numbers (Grid 1-9) £1,000 Cash
6 Numbers (Grid 10) £10,000 Cash
You can save up your points for prizes (no postage & packaging to pay). The smallest prize is for around 12,000 tokens at present and is a book on the humble potato. The most expensive item is 48,000 points and appears to be an MP3 or MP4 player although there isn't much information available about this. There is normally a set amount of stock such as 10 available and it will tell you how many there are left in stock at present so if you are saving for something you can keep an eye on the stock levels at all times.
You can refer up to ten friends (by giving their e-mail address) and will get paid 100 tokens for each person that joins using the link provided in the e-mail that they will receive from Bananalotto.
There are often offers on the site to help you earn a few extra points such as five points for clicking through to a website or signing up to something (free of charge of course).
I'm a very happy user of the website I think it's quite an entertaining few minutes to spend each day choosing your favourite numbers or some random numbers even and then maybe even looking at the advert that pops up.
If you are interested in joining up please do not hesitate to contact me via private message with your e-mail address so that I may refer you to the site (and earn myself a few little points in the process!).
I am rating this site 5/5 as it's free and you can save up your points to earn rewards so I don't think you can lose with this one at all! It might take a while but it's only about 2-3 minutes a day to use the 10 grids.
I signed up to bananalotto probably about eight months ago. It is a fun website that is eay to use and only takes about a couple of minutes a day to complete. Every day you get the chance to complete ten lotto grids for free with the chance of winning £100,000 each day although as you would suspect that is not very likely. However, if you do persist with the site, every so often you will amass enough points to be able to select a small prize!
How the site works is that first you need to register. Once you have done so, you can log on each day and play the ten grids. To do this for each grid you need to select six numbers - you can either choose your own or you can make a random selection. Once you have selected your numbers, you then need to click on an advert which seems to be the way that you are paying for your grid. In fact it is because of the advertisers that the site is able to afford to pay out the prizes. As soon as you have opened this advert you can return to the main page, select another six numbers, click on another advert and so on. You can keep doing this until you have completed ten grids.
You then wait until the following day to get an email which will tell you how successful you have been in each of your grids and how many points you have earned. Every day a daily draw takes place that selects the six winning numbers and these are displayed on your email. The way the points work is as follows:
If you have
1 winning number on a grid = 10 points
2 winning numbers = 25 points
3 winning numbers = 40 points
4 winning numbers = 150 points
5 winning numbers will earn you £10 although if this is on the tenth grid it is doubled to £20.
If you are ever so fortunate to get all six winning numbers on a grid you will receive 1000 euros or if it is on the tenth grid £10,000. There is a very generous £100,000 available if you get five winning numbers and the bonus on the tenth grid.
Unfortunately I have never got more than four winning numbers on a grid so have not yet earned a cash prize but I do live in hope. I have however continued to amass points and about just over three months ago I had enough points to redeem for a DVD.
Prizes are listed in the bananashop and there are a couple of small prizes of a magnet for 3500 and a pen for 5000. However, the better prizes start at about 12000 and there is always agood selection of DVDs which change regularly. These are not the most recent DVDs but they are not that old either.
They do say that it can take up to 90 days for a prize to reach you and this does seem an excessively long time. Unfortunately this is the amount of time that it took my DVD to arrive - in fact I think it took 92 days and I had just sent an outraged email when it arrived. I honestly cannot understand why it should take so long to receive a prize but they do turn up in the end.
I also contacted their customer services about a month before and I did think they were very unhelpful in their response.
This is my only gripe with the site though and generally I like my daily flutter with my numbers and the fact that each day I have the potential to win a cash prize. The site is very easy to use and if there is anything that you don't understand there is a comprehensive FAQ section. The winners are shown and everything seems very open.
You can also make a few extra points from referring new members to the site. If you are interested and wouldn't mind me gaining an extra 100 points please leave me a message and I will happily refer you. However you do have to be over the age of 16.
Generally though this is a fun site with the potential to earn prizes with only the minimum of effort and the good thing is, is that if you keep with it, you will definitely win something in the long run. I definitely recommend it!
Everyone has heard of the lottery, and the lottery is something that is available in almost every country. The traditional way to play it is to go to the shop and buy a ticket, but with BananaLotto, you can do it from the comfort of your own home. You can get a ticket, which is free by the way, and wait for the lottery to start, which is daily. That is what is great about this site, is seems so simple, and to honest, it is really simple, and so easy. If you have 3 numbers on your ticket, you wont win anything, but if you get 4, 5, 6 or 7 numbers on your ticket, then you are guarenteed a cash prize, from range from as little as £5, all the way up to the amazing £1 million, which is pretty good when you think that your ticket was for free.
If you do get a coupe of numbers, then you dont get any cash, but you will get a discount at some brilliant online stores. I have played this lottery a couple of times, and I have never won any money yet, but I did recieve a 20% discount at CDWow. The overall layout of the website is brilliant and is the main thing that attracted me to the website. I was recommended to this site from a friend, and now I am recommending it to you.
So there's loads of reviews on here for Bananalotto, why am I doing another one. Well, it's because Bananalotto has had a makeover, and quite a significant one at that.
I've been playing it on and off for a long time now and never won anything more than a buch of free weekends at Fitness First and a pile of discount vouchers off a CD from CD-Wow that I never used as it was usually cheaper from Play.com.
For those of you that have played Kingolotto then the new format will appear incredibly similar, so much so that I think the two may become one at some point soon. As it is they appear to be situated on the same server and they have links to each other.
Once you've registered for free then the idea now is that you have 10 grids each day. Each grid is made up of 49 numbers, and you need to select 6 (5 + a bonus number). After completing a grid you need to click on one of the ads which will open in the same window and a new small window will pop up confirming your entry. You then click on the link in the small window to close that and return to your original window to play your 2nd grid. Once you've gone through your 10 grids then you wait till the next day to find out your results. You need to play your games by 11pm GMT and the results will be there by the next morning.
The prizes are ok but you get significantly more if you win a prize on the 10th grid.
1 number - 10 points
2 numbers - 25 points
3 numbers - 40 points
4 numbers - 150 points.
These points are added together each day and added to your account. There are a few novelty prizes for under 10000 but once you get about 12000 points you can start thinking of getting a DVD, theres a small selection at the moment but they are decent films, eg 300, Happy Feet. You can get about 100 points a day on average so you can certainly get a couple of free DVD's a year or save for a 1gb IPod shuffle at 80000 points.
There is also a monthly tombola you can enter for 250 points per ticket. There will also be special draws where you can win a prize just for playing your grids each day.
Obviously there is also the cash prizes which are:
5 numbers (grid 1-9) - £10
5 numbers (grid 10) - £20
6 numbers (grid 1-9) - £1,000 (6 numbers in any order)
6 numbers (grid 10) - £10,000 (6 numbers in any order)
6 numbers (grid 10) - £100,000 (5 numbers in any order + the correct bonus ball)
As of now there haven't been any winners but the game has only been going 3 weeks.
All in all its a good improvement and the points are a really good way to win things even if you don't win cash.
