      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      If you are looking for a competition site then visit www.ukfreelottery.com. This is a free syndicate site that will buy five tickets for you each draw (On both Wednesday and Saturday). You are entered into a syndicate with about 20 other people and if you win the money is divided between you. Every ten pound win you make will go toward charity. All you have to do is sign up, which is quick and easy. Then you log into the members page and all you need to do is quickly go to a sponsors site, put you user name in the provided box and you have a ticket bought. You also get £2 pounds and 40p per referral (up to five, but the minimum withdrawal is £10) Worth doing though considering it costs nothing.

        Disadvantages

        I realise that many people see this as a con, but surely not as much of a con as having to queue up with all the mugs in the newsagents and hand over a whole quid for nothing more than a piece of paper. If you enter the lottery in the conventional way, you will pay at least £1 and win £0. If you play via FreeUKLottery, you will pay £0 and win £0. If anything is a con, I think it’s the first option. I admire the proprietors, MyGuide, for coming up with such a devastatingly effective method of getting traffic to their group of sites. To enter FreeUKLottery, you have to visit other sites in the group and find the “Playpoint” – the idea being that they can then command hefty sums from advertisers by showing them the large number of visiting punters. If someone is dedicated to FreeUKLottery, they will visit the sites twice a week – guaranteed. This is so fiendishly simple that I can’t possibly criticise MyGuide for it – they have to spend £10 per week on lottery tickets – and get huge numbers of hits plus vast advertising revenues in return. Brilliant! The only mildly connish aspect of this scheme is its participation in the ‘Your Cheque” affiliate programme, also run by MyGuide. They offer webmasters 2p per click on their banner – but the banner has been on my site for about a month and is still “pending approval” i.e. I don’t get any money. I wouldn’t mind if they reviewed my site and didn’t approve it – but to let me have the banner for so long and not fork out for the clicks is a bit off. From a player’s point of view, FreeUKLottery is no more of a con than the lottery itself. The fact that it is a huge syndicate makes no difference – we all know there is no chance of winning whether you join this or buy your own ticket. It’s just a bit of fun really, and at least it’s free.

        Is this site really worth it? I doubt it. The story is this. Yes - you get free lottery tickets - but only as part of a syndicate. You get one lines just for visiting, then you can get three more for clicking on links which take you to other parts of the myguide web site - so this is just a way to get you to look round. Enter your user name at "Play points" and you are returned to the selection page to get another line. You get a bonus after visiting 3 times to give you 5 lines overall. Now the catch - do some maths. 1) You are in a syndicate. How big? Could be huge - it doesn't say. 2) £10 wins go to charity - probably because you'd be able to tell that the syndicate was so big when you got 0.001p credited! 3) And 50% of all winnings are retained by myguide. Now, correct me if I am wrong, but I thought 50% was about the amount paid out by the lottery anyway in prizes, so the net overall cost to the site owners is....ZERO! Ok - so it costs you nothing too. And heck, they even give you £2 to sign up. Trouble is you can only withdraw winnings at £10. You could of course find 20 friends to join from your recommendation as you get 40p each time. In would guess that this is the best way to get your tenner! So - the site is not really a con, as it doesn't cost you anything - but it is misleading in making you think you could make any real money from it. Think about spending your time there - it will most most likely be wasted. Full marks to mygroup though for a very clever set up that gets them free traffic. Very clever indeed...

          Yes you really do get 520 chances to win on the National Lottery a year, yes it really is FREE. So whats the catch? Well there isn't one really. Basically when you register and get £2 in your account free. You get 5 tickets brought on your behalf every Saturday and Wednesday, to get these tickets you need to visit the site before the draw and enter your username, this gets you 1 ticket, you then have to click on the links and visit 3 more sites and enter your username for 3 more tickets. Finally click on the bonus to get your 5th ticket. I know it sounds like hassle, but it really only takes a couple of minutes. If you get 3 numbers on any line the winnings are rewarded to charity. If you get 4 numbers or more half of the winnings are yours, even if you get the jackpot! You can draw out of your account if you have over £10. Unfortunately 4 balls have never come up yet, but if you keep playing it's only a matter of time. 4 balls on the National Lottery could mean half of anything from £20 to £100 plus, so it's worth playing. If 6 numbers came up there would be a lot of winners, so don't start dreaming of winning millions. I think this site is an excellent idea, you see your winning balls BEFORE the draw, so there is a definate chance of winning, it can't possibly be fixed. As a bonus there is a scheme for referring friends too.

          Okay, before I start I should be open and say that I work for a website that offers "lottery tickets" too (and no I'm not going to advertise and say which one) When you first see the site it appears too good to be true, freeuklottery.com will buy "10 lottery tickets on your behalf". There must be a catch I thought …. and there is. freeuklottery only buy 10 lottery tickets IN TOTAL each week, yes that’s right the 10 tickets purchased on your behalf are being shared with everyone else who enters too. I’m not going to go through the details of what this means about how much you would actually win because its fairly obvious that’s its not going to be a lot, not even if they win the jackpot. Anyway there are more sites offering free lottery chances than you can shake a very large stick at so I recommend you check some of those out instead.

          I think this is an interesting web site - www.freeuklottery.com - You get 10 free tries at the lottery each week and they give you £2 to join. The only trouble is you have to have at least £10 in your account with them before you can draw any money out - in other words, unless you win some lolly on this lottery site, you never get the £2 they award you with! Still, never mind, I enjoy this site and it is an extra 'thrill' to see if I win with the numbers given to me. Of course, if you do win the money has to be shared with others - perhaps I ought to be keeping this quiet!!!

          Deary deary me, why are people actually still falling for this con? If you are one of the people who continue to be taken in by this then I urge you to go and have a look again at the rules. Have a good look and see if you can find out how many are in each 'syndicate'. The truth is that one set of tickets is put on to be shared among EVERY single person that visits the site. I run a small local website and get at least 1000 unique hits every week - I can only imagine that this 'lottery' site gets at least ten times that amount (a very conservative estimate). So lets consider what you can win. Four numbers usually pays around £60, so if we share that among the 10,000 syndicate members they would each get 0.6 pence. Yes that's right - not even a penny. Oops sorry, I forgot that the site organisers take half of all winnings - so for four numbers you may not even get a third of a penny. They have never had four numbers yet!!! They say you get a free gift of £2 for joining, but you can't claim any money until you have at least a tenner in your account. Would you ever see the £2. I will leave you to work out the rest of the numbers for yourself, after pointing out that with an average jackpot of £8 million you could become a millionnaire through this site, but only as long as they win the jackpot 2500 times. They say that it is free, but in my opinion my time is more precious than the very very slim chance of winning a few pennies that they offer. It would probably take the same time to write a decent review on Dooyoo, and at least you know you will make money from that. If you don't believe any of this then why not send them an e-mail and ask them how many are in 'a syndicate', they wouldn't tell me - betcha they won't tell you either!!

            Unlike other lottery syndicates offered on the web, freeuklottery offer a chance at the Wednesday lottery - well, 5 chances actually! The numbers do change (my partner enters on a different day to me so we're not in the same syndicate) so at least it's not the same 5 tickets for every person who enters each Sunday-to-Wednesday and Thursday-to-Saturday, but I don't know how many people are in each syndicate. But who can grumble, it's a free chance at some big money - even if you have to share it with someone else, it's still more than you would have had if you didn't enter.

            Disadvantages

            When I came across freeuklottery I thought it sounded brilliant. I could enter 5 tickets for the lottery without paying the £5.00 it would normally cost. When I first entered three numbers came up and so I thought I may have won a bit. I then read that you have to get four numbers or more as the £10 is given to charity. Quite good, but I only know people who have got three numbers, never more. If four numbers do come up you usually win between £60-100. That means if there are 100 people you would get one pound. There must be loads more than this as they have banners on several web sites. You will probably therefore end up getting next to nothing unless all six come up but how likely is that!

            Well, who'd turn down the opportunity to have a go at winning some money without actually handing any over? Not a bad idea if the chances of you winning are reasonable. Well, I wouldn't say you had a good chance of winning any with this free lottery but you certainly have to be in it to win it. If you don't try you certainly won't win. The site in question is very easy to use and well presented so it's simple. Just fill in a quick form with your details and go ahead, try to win some money! You can win small amounts £10ish and larger amounts so it's worth having a quick go even if it's just for fun. You can't lose anything!

            Free lottery tickets, that’s good enough for me. Ok so it’s pretty minimal but who cares, you get free entry into the lottery! Registration is simple enough, with a pretty minimal amount of personal details required. After which you are entitle to 5 free entries into each lottery draw – Excellent. I play as often as I can – obviously it’s free, I’m giving up less than a minute of my time for a chance to win some dosh without actually paying a penny – excellent. Basically the sites gives you five lines of numbers, to enter you simply click the link. I would have expected to be taken to some advertising or some sponsors banners but no, a nice easy on the eye page where you just enter your ID. Once again excellent. The only drawback is the fact that if three numbers come up, you don’t receive the £10 instead it goes to charity. But then again that’s not so bad, because you’re helping charity and you still have a chance of winning some dosh. The is an excellent, easy-to-use site that is a free chance to win some lottery cash. It only takes a minute, so why not give it a go – yeah by the way if you do become a millionaire remember who told you what the site was like.

              The free uk lottery is in my opinion is one of the best lottery sites on the web. After filling out quite a simple registration form your account will automatily be credited with £2. You then get five free tickets every Wednesday and Saturday for the national lottery draw. I play almost every week if 3 numbers come up you do not win anything but your £10 is donated to charity, i've had 3 number come up about 4 times since i've been playing so that is £40 that's been donated to charity. Most lottery sites require you to click on banners but the Free UK lottery site is different, when you click on the link you are taken to a page within the free guide.co.uk pages all you have to do is put your user name in the box provided then you repeat the process until you have entered your five sets of numbers. This is an excellent site the lottery is easy to enter, and who knows you might become a millionnaire.

                I have just visited this site, or rather this single page of click throughs to the American Imustlotto site, what a poor site. There's more to the free lotteries than just sticking a few links on the page, is this just a way of them gaining revenue from referrals ? The site is described as a guide to free lotteries yet there is no info on any of the sites available, only Imustlotto links. I play Freelotto on a daily basis and was expecting reviews and links to this and other sites yet was very disappointed by the poor content and design of this site, definately one to avoid.

                Disadvantages

                After filling in a fairly lengthy registration form, your account is credited with a 'free' £2 (hardly the millions that we're all hoping for but everyone has to start somewhere). You can then enter an online syndicate which you can enter free each week - but (you guessed it folks, there's always a catch) each time you click on a line to say that you want to enter, you get taken to one of their sponsors websites. Something of a long shot - even if you do win a million, you'll probably have to share it with at least 500 other people. Something to do if you're a) very bored b) an obsessive gambler. It's probably easier to just splash out for your own ticket!

                I went to this site on recommendation from a friend, and was sorely disappointed. There are just loads of banners for "I Must Lotto", in a poorly designed layout. When you click one of these you are taken to another poorly designed page, but lured by $5000, you carry on. However, when you delve into the terms and conditions you see that "We reserve the right not to pay prizes to players residing outside the 50-state US.". Basically, this site smells of trying to get people to click their banner ads, with little or no chance of anything in return. Stay back. PS - I don't think this site even deserves the minimum one star, pity i can't give it zero, or negative numbers!
