      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Dailydraw.com is basically a lottery in which you pick six numbers (1 to 64). You can pick these yourself or click on random choice and it will pick six for you (good if you are feeling lazy). Then you have to click on a banner to submit your numbers. These are usually adverts such as loans and offers that don't interest you ( well they don't interest me!) Still it's free and this is the reason it's free as the site gets their money from these advertisers so I mustn't grumble! I must admit I usually close them straight away as they don't interest me. There then follows an extra game. This time you only have to choose five numbers (1 to 49) again you have to click on a banner in order for your numbers to be submitted. This is simple and easy and only takes a minute of your time. Not bad if you end up winning a million pounds! You get a second play as well but there needs to be an hour between your first play and second play. This is easy enough as you get and email with the link so no need to sign in again. You can cancel this reminder if you want to though (there is a link to cancel it in the actual email) Registration is easy from what I remember as I have been playing for 2 years now I think. You have to submit an address. Make sure this is right because if you win you want to make sure you get the cheque! There is also a heading titled my plays. Hhere you can see the most recent numbers you have picked and the winning numbers. You don't need to visit the website to find out if you have won either. The lovely people at dailydraw send you an email the next day with the results and the numbers you have picked. Well now for the most important bit, the prizes! Is it worth playing? I think it is as i have won £10 twice now and as they say you have to be in it to win it! Some lucky sod did win the million pounds and I bet he got a shock when he got the email telling him this!! The prizes: 1 number = this is new. If you match one number you get various offers. However, these usually have a catch so I have never bothered using these! 2 numbers = CD WOW voucher (£1) 3 numbers = 4th prize 4 numbers = £5 5 numbers = £500 6 numbers = £1 million! Now I must say they must have changed the prizes a little as when I matched 4 numbers (twice) I got £10 each time. So this means they may change these now and then as I was still under the impression that 4 numbers still got you £10. The prize for the Extra game is different. There is a jackpot and everyday there is more money added to it if no one wins. To win you must match all 5 numbers. Up until reading a few reviews on CD WOW I never bothered using them as I never went on the site. Luckilly I saved them as so far I have used two of them. I have a few more still to use! So all in all its worth a look if you have never visited the site before. You never know your luck! Even if you play now and then!!

        Disadvantages

        What more could you ask for? Two chances a day to win cash prizes of up to £1,000,000. The Daily Draw reallly puts shame on the National Lottery. Why play the Lotto when you have two FREE lines for a lottery draw per day with the daily draw. I play everyday and despite having only won a 2 for 1 theme park entry voucher, there is nothing more exciting than checking on those numbers every morning in the hope that you will be confronted by the message; Congratulations. How to play is very simple, you simply choose 6 numbers from the grid of 64 and then click on a banner. You don't have to take part in anything where the banner sends you. Then wait an hour and submit your second line of numbers. Then get up really early (if you want) and go check to see if you have won! The prizes are as follows: 3 Numbers: Special Vouchers 4 Numbers: £10 5 Numbers: £1,000 6 Numbers: £1 Million If I was you I would give up spending money on the National Lottery and scratchcards and get signed upp with the daily draw!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          The daily draw is a free online lottery for UK residents. The prizes on offer range from £25 to £1,000,000. You can play twice a day. The website is easy to understand with bright colours and quite self explanatory. To register you have to: Enter your name, e-mail address and address, and a few preferences about the type of adverts you want to display. After you have registered to play you play by the following steps: 1) Log in. 2) Select either 6 numbers yourself, select to play 6 random numbers or select to play random numbers. 3) Click on a advert. 4) The advert is then opened in a different screen. 5) Wait untill the next day to see if you have won. If you match 6 numbers you get £1,000,000, if you match 5 numbers you get £1,000, if you match 4 numbers you get £10. If you match 3 numbers you get arrange of 2 for the price of one offers. Once you have completed the lottery game you then are giving a scratch card. With this scratch card you can win prizes of between £5 and £50. To play the scratch card you have to 1) Select a advert to view 2) The advert is opened in 1 window and the scratch cad in another. 3) Select 4 squares out of the 16 available. 4) If 4 symbols are revealed you have won a prize of between 5 and 15 pounds. After the scratch card you are giving the opportunity to refer a friend. If you refer a friend and your friend wins the jackpot you win £25,000. There is also the accumulator draw that is a prize draw to witch you accumulate entries by matching 6 numbers in a month on the main draw. The prize varies from month to month. Regular prizes are of the sort of win a sports-car for the weekend. I like the daily draw. The only problem is after a year as a member I still have not won anything, so I don't know if they pay or not. The daily draw sents a few junk e-mail's but not many. The daily draw also has
          just had its first 1 million pounds winner.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            This site lets you enter a daily draw to win a £1 MILLION. They also offer lower prizes of £5000 and £25. As the domain suggests, it's a daily draw. Well they draw on week days but you can enter it daily. How it works is simple. You pick 6 number just like the National Lottery. However your chances of winning a million here is less, since there are now 64 numbes to choose from rather than 49. A few presses on my calculator gives 74,974,368 different possible combinations, unlike the National Lottery's 13,983,816. This makes it about 5 times less likely to get all 6 numbers right. However the good thing about thedailydraw.com is that it is completely free. So you would expect that it would be more difficult to win if it was free to enter. There are some catches. You must be 16 or over for any chance of playing to win a million. You must also be a UK resident, and of course you need to sign up. This involves giving your name, age, and address/contact details (in case you ever win). Surprisingly there has been NO junk mail, or any mail that has been unwanted. I think there was an option when signing up to not receive it. The only mail I get from them is the winning numbers, and my selected numbers. I would also get an email if I won...but that's IF. Any how, it's been quite simple. Everyday I log on, press select last numbers, and that's it. It takes about 1 minute a day. One thing you must do to play is after selecting you numbers you need to click on an advert that they have which are usually relevant to you as when signing up you select your interests. Clicking on one of these probably gives them money, which goes towards the prizes. After this your numbers are validated and all you need to do is wait for the draw which is done at midnight, under "strict supervision" bla bla bla...well that's what they say. There have been quite a few £5000 winners, so it is possible! If you match all 6 - you
            have a million pounds. 5 - £5000, 4 - £25. All is free, so I thought try it out. Let's keep our fingers crossed. Since writing my original opinion on Ciao, there have been a few changes, that is, increasing your chances of winning a prize. Now you can play twice a day, as long as you wait an hour between each day, you can have two chances of having a go at winning. You could try choosing exactly the same numbers, so that if you were to match up 6 numbers, you'd win TWO MILLION POUNDS!!, but you're probably better off selecting a different combination, which increases your chance of winning something!!. thedailydraw.com has also made it easier to play, so that you don't need to log in with a username and password each time. Simply click on a link, and add it to your favourites, and you'll be taken to the number pick page straight away. There has also been an extra game to play, a scratchcard. I'm a bit cautious about the authenticity of this game. Firstly, you can win prizes from £5 to £5000, which you find out by revealing a "scratch" panel. Then you have to scratch off 4 fireballs from 16 panels, where 4 are fireballs and the remaining 12 are blank. Now, as a mathematician, you'd have to do some maths to see what the chancse are of winning: 4/16 x 3/15 x 2/14 x 1/13 = 1/1820. That is you have 1 in 1820 chance of getting all four fireballs. This is assuming that the chance of getting a win is equal, i.e. that winning cards a decided first hand and not altered during play. Since it is a flash applet, I'm sure it would be very easy to write a short algorithm to slim the chances for you of winning. For my first play I think I had a chance of winning £200, and my first 3 picks found me a 3 fireballs, but on my fourth was just a blank. All my other plays have just been £5 prizes and I rarely pick a fireball now. In my personal opinion, the scratchcard cannot be policed as easily and I
            think it's all fixed. But in the end, it's free, and all you lose is a few minutes of your time.

              Disadvantages

              With the National Lottery having lost it's glamour and having to go for a facelift, they are wondering how they can attract the members of the public back. When you have games online like The Dailydraw.com and Bananalotto, it is easy to understand why people are staying away. Basically once you have signed on you choose your numbers and then click on the one of thelinks to the right. This takes you to the site that was advertised, an extra window will pop up from the daily draw asking you to wait ( I think this is to make sure that you have gone to the site) Once it has confirmed your entry into the draw you close this window and you have a choice, if the site that you are in looks intereting, have a look, if not you just close your explorer. It is as simple as that. Once you have played it a few times you will note the same advertisers on there and so all i do is wait for my confirmation and the exit straight out. That is it, no outlay of £1 and it takes a matter of minutes. You may be thinking: " What is the catch?". Well there isn't any all you are doing is having numbers entered into the their lottery just for looking at a site which you can quickly close down. So what about the prizes: Well they may not be as good as the National Lottery but 4 numbers right is £25.00, 5 numbers is £5,000 and 6 numbers is £1 million. I have recently just chosen four numbers correctly and like most i was sceptic that the cheque would never come but to my surprise it did and all within 30 days. Another added bonus with this is that for each number that you match this gets added as an 'Accumulator' point. What is this? you may ask, well basically each month there is a draw where you can win a weekend and live like a millionaire (You know the holiday, the car, the food etc) or you can simply take the money. To enter each monthly draw you have to get six 'Accumulator' points to earn 1 entry into the draw. Take note that after
              the month has ended, your 'Accumulator' points go back to 0 and you have to start over again each month. If you thought this was good enough, one hour after you have entered your first set of numbers you have a second (and last)chance to pick numbers for that day, which helps to double your daily chances. All entries are confirmed to you via e-mail and the draw results are also confirmed to you, each e-mail has a link to the draw page so that you do not have to keep signing on. The actual site is quite easy to manoeuvre around and you can update your profile when you want, check how many 'Accumulator' points you have for that month and also check the past draw numbers. So that's about it!! What are you waiting for, why spend that £1 when the lotto can be free!!!

                Disadvantages

                Well in terms of probability you really are more likely to get hit by a meteorite than win the national lottery and thus you are even LESS likely to win on this website. WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO? Well simply its a very quick and easy process. After signing up (very quick, the usual name, address, email information), you are given a sign in name(your email address) and a password. Then all you have to do is three steps: 1. Sign in with your name and password 2. Pick six numbers between 1 and 69 by clicking on the numbers 3. Click on one of (normally) 3 sponsers This then takes you to that sponser's site, by opening up a new window, which takes about 30 seconds. Another window will open confirming your numbers and telling you that the next draw will be drawn at 4pm. You have to wait for this window to have appeared with your confirmation before you can close both windows. In total this takes no more than about 1 and a half minutes. SO WHATS THE CATCH? Absolutely nothing. All you have to do is wait for the window to open to confirm your numbers, You are under no obligation to buy or even remain on the sponsers website. OK NO CATCH, BUT HOW DO I WIN? If I knew I wouldn't be writing this. I have played it regularly now for a couple of months and I haven't won anything. I normally get one or two numbers, but unfortunately you need 4 numbers to win £25, 5 numbers is around a £1000 and 6 numbers is the £1,000,000 jackpot. They have recently started the 'accumulator', in which any number you match is counted up and every time you get 6 numbers in a month you get put into the prize draw (prize = live like a millionaire for a weekend). I am also aware that, if join through Mypoints.com, that you get given bonus points, but as I am not a member of this site, I don't know the details. Needless to say I still havent got more than two numbers, but for all of you that do try -
                GOOD LUCK!

                  Disadvantages

                  Having just seen the banner of thedailydraw.com I decided to have a look. There are quite a few lotto sites like bananalotto.com, jackpot.com so even managing to keep up to date with them is a bit of a task. But, I guess the temptation of a chance to win a million is to great to resist so off I went to have a luck. The site loads quite fast unlike jackpot.com so already another advantage the site looks promising. For those of you who don’t know jackpt.com is a site where you can play games and win a million including ding the lotto. Anyway back to thedailydraw.com, the site layout is clear and very simple and easy to follow. You do have to register with the site and become a member which is straightforward, the good thing about this site is that when you have registered the following week you’re inbox will not be full with junk. So, everytime you enter the daily draw you log in chose your numbers and wait for the draw. How to play is very simple and easy, won’t take you that long either here are the steps: Step 1-Register or log in Step 2-Pick your 6 numbers Step 3-Submitt one of the banners Step 4-Just imagine as it says on the site Like bananalotto.com the prize money of this site is generated by members clicking onto the banners so with the revenue generated you should get your prize money if you win. What I like about this site is that everything is very easy, it’s easy to pick your numbers and you have the chance to pick the numbers out of 64 not 49. If you have a couple of minutes spare then this is a good way to spend it. You an even make thedailydraw.com site your homepage or even refer it to friends. I haven’t won anything but I might stick with this site for a bit. Faster to load than jackpot.com but for me it’s to similar to bananalotto.com. I can remember the bananalotto.com advertisement campaigns which still stick in my min
                  d, thedailydraw.com have the same format as their rivals. They should merge together and have more winners so there could be more winners. So far bananalotto.com is in the front since I have won 50p on their site. But, this is a very good site too….

                    Yes its a good idea to have a free daily lottery style draw on the net. You could win 1 million! thats how they sell the spam mail to you. The site is so slow its unreal. Cant they just get a decent host for the site? so many times it times out on me as i pick my balls..oohh err vicar. Not only is the site slow but the spam you start recieving from day one is really annoying. I signed up last week and have already recieved 5 emails trying to sell me stuff. I idea of winning 1 million is good, the application of picking my balls each day on the slowest website around and handling the spam is not worth it to me.

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      I only started playing the “Daily Draw” late last week. I have always been skeptical of these types of lotteries that offer huge payouts and during my many years of Internet surfing have seen many of these. Therefore I was not really expecting this one to be any different. However I was happy to be proven wrong. One thing that pleases me about this lottery is its emphasis on eliminating Junk Mail. Most similar such lotteries undoubtedly are the root cause for a mass amount of Junk Mail. With the Daily Draw the e-mails that you will receive are based on the information you choose to tell them about yourself and your interests, in the registration process. Because you choose which information to give them, you are in control of the messages you receive. You will not be inundated with irrelevant junk e-mails because they use the information you share with them, about your interests and preferences, to deliver to you only relevant messages. Therefore the less you select the less Junk Mail you will receive. The Daily Draw is FREE and gives you a daily chance to win £1 million and all from the comfort of your own home. If you match 6 numbers out of 6 you win £1 million. 5 number of out 6 will get you £5,000 and 4 number out of 6 will pay out £25. Playing is very easy and fast: Step 1 Register Step 2 Choose 6 numbers from the grid. You can also click on “Random Choice” to receive a random selection of numbers or you can play the same numbers as last time (if you have played before). Step 3 You then submit your numbers by clicking on one of the ad banners. Then wait for your entry to be processed. Your selection will then be confirmed. The results will be e-mailed to you later every day. Step 4 PRAY THAT TODAY IS THE DAY The daily jackpot of £1 million, for matching all six numbers, is guaranteed on the Lloyds Insurance Market in London. Ernst &
                      Young (A very reputable Accountancy Firm) physically oversee the daily draw process. Overall I am pleased with the setup of the Daily Draw and I await, in earnest, for my first win without the SPAM. Website: www.thedailydraw.com

                        Disadvantages

                        Those of you who are familiar with Bananalotto will know how this works. The mechanics of this lottery are very similar to the national game but it is free to enter, is drawn daily rather than weekly and is entirely web based. There are 64 numbers to chose from instead of the traditional 50, and you have to select six numbers. To win the jackpot of £1,00,000 you need to match all six numbers, so the odds of winning are even more distant than the national game. The prizes look something like this… 4 numbers from 6 £25 5 numbers from 6 £5000 6 numbers from 6 £1000,000 I have been playing on and off for two months. I have won once, a £25 prize last week, from which the cheque arrived today. There is testimony from six players who have won the £5000 in recent months featured on the site. No one has yet won the jackpot. On the whole, the odds are now more favourable than Bananalotto who have recently ditched their minor prizes given for three numbers. Bananalotto (See my review for them) and The Daily Draw are similar enough to warrant a direct comparison. The Daily Draw site is slower to load and the Flash based programming seems a little temperamental. It also requires more effort from the user as it will not recognise you when loading and will always require the manual input of your user name and password. Once logged in you are taken to the number selection screen and here you are given similar options as those found at Bananalotto. You can select a new set of numbers manually, elect for a random selection, retain a set of ‘Favourite’ numbers or repeat the same numbers as in the previous draw. Once you have your numbers you click on one of three ad banners on the right hand side of the screen. It is this advertising revenue that finances the game and it is the same method employed at Bananalotto. Unfortunately there is an unacceptable amount of bandwidth taken up by the THREE screens that load simultan
                        eously following selection. Not only do you get the advertisers website but you are also diverted to the Daily Draw home page and a results page! Results, win or lose, are sent to each participant via e-mail. There is also an accumulator prize which is run each month and your chances of winning are improved each time you enter for the daily draw. The prizes will be something like a luxury weekend away or a new computer etc. The ‘Refer a friend’ scheme here allows you to pick up £25,000 if your friend wins the jackpot. The site is owned by those that brought you ‘Mypoints’, a reward scheme that pays out in high street vouchers (See my review for them). For those of you signed up with Mypoints you will be interested to know that there are an extra 50 points given to you simply for signing up with the Daily Draw. In addition, you gain 25 points each month if you have entered the Daily Draw at least eight times. It is just about worth my time and effort at the moment, so long as they continue to throw a guaranteed 25 Mypoints at me each month. I have the site stored in my ‘Favourites’ drop-down list and I tend to run it in a second window while I visit other sites. It takes about three minutes each day to enter depending on the speed of your connection. While it is slower and fussier than Bananalotto it offers more realistic rewards and a better chance of winning.

                          The DailyDraw.com is similar to Bananalotto.co.uk. It's format is akin to the lottery and promises upto one million pounds in prizes. After registering the usual details, you are shown the grid where you select your six numbers (no bonus ball!). You can allow a random selection, choose your last set of numbers and if you aren't happy with those numbers you can start again. After you've selected your numbers, you need to click on a banner. There are usually four to the right, ranging from companies like Webrewards or Ipoints, to Comet to WHSmith or obscure gambling sites. Although we all hate advertising, the range of banners should give you at least one that would interest you. I've signed up to a couple of schemes and visited several sites simply because they've appeared at this point on the site. When you click on the banner, two windows pop up. One is a small window at the very top of your screen telling you that your numbers are being logged for entry into the draw. It lets you know when this is done and you can close it. The second is the site to whom the aforementioned banner belongs. I wouldn't advise closing this TOO quickly, as I think they may have a timer on the page - if you shut the new window you might find yourself having to reenter. It hasn't happened to me personally! Prizes are: Match six numbers and you win £1,000,000 Match five numbers and you win £5,000 Match four numbers and you win ... £25! A big leap between prize amounts!! As well as the above prizes, they also have an "Accumulator" scheme. This was introduced quite a while after the site was first set up as I think they found that the lack of smaller prizes deterred users from returning to their site. The Accumulator logs your numbers over a month, and for every six matches during that month, you receive an entry into a further prize draw. There is no limit on the number of entries - you aren
                          't restricted to one set of six. IE if you match 12 numbers during that month, you get 2 entries into the prize draw. The current prize is to spend a weekend living as a millionaire - posh hotel, extra posh car (use of) and £250 spending money. You will then receive an email the next day listing the winning numbers and letting you know whether you've won. The site itself is very clean looking, pretty basic (unlike Bananalotto's fancy fussy design, with clear lines and white backgrounds. This doesn't, however, make it look amateur - far from it. As far as functionality goes, it doesn't remember your email address upon log in - not even in a popup menu form. You need to type the whole thing manually every time you log in. It's not a big deal, I know, but I find it a bit annoying. It also doesn't remember your password like Dooyoo does. You cannot set a favourite set of numbers as on Bananalotto - but if you always use the same numbers, you just click the button for re-using your last numbers. The whole site is a lot quicker than it was a couple of months ago. I often had dead image links on pages. They seem to have ironed a lot of the niggles out of the site. Links to contact the staff, edit your details, their privacy policy, prize details etc are very easy to find and pages load in under 20 seconds. It's not graphics laden which is a big help for loading time, but there are relevant images on some pages - the posh car and hotel for example, as well as winners. The winners page is self-explanatory and easy to find. It seems fairly up-to-date. It wasn't present on the site for a long while, and the lack of it deterred me from entering the draw. It's there with bells on now though :> They have a refer-a-friend scheme, as all of these sites do. They will pay you £25,000 if one of your referrals wins the million. Whoopie. You can also sign up for th
                          eir affiliate program for which you will usually earn 50p per registration - but don't quote me on that as it differs. Lastly, the official company details are in several places on the site. This sort of verifiable info is always reassuring. I tend to go through bouts of playing this type of game. The Daily Draw isn't, to me, one of the most attractive draws simply because of the lack of smaller prizes. Bananalotto offer a lot more in the way of smaller amounts for lesser matches. I play it when I remember to - but that's just me. The odds are in your favour, the more often you play. Good luck!

                            OK then - you want to win thedailydraw.com ........... ......... well, if I knew that I wouldn't be writing this!! Still, never mind. So, thedailydraw is a lottery site which is nothing particularly new. Other sites like Bananalotto have been going for a while longer - and in fact I've won about £6 total. Unfortunately I've not won anything yet with thedailydraw. The idea is simple, play every day - choose 6 numbers, click on an advert and if you match 4 you win £25, 5 numbers is £5000 and £6 is £1million. As with all lotteries the steep step in winnings from 4 to 5 numbers is massive. Why not have lower total prizes and allow people to win more for fewer numbers. I would guess it's all down to people not being encouraged by prizes of less than £1million - even if there's virtually no chance of winning. I've had 3 numbers once but other than that no luck. I heard about this site through an e-mail from mypoints.co.uk - which is another rewards site which is quite good. For playing 8 times I can earn 25 points. better than nothing. As there are only 6 numbers and not 7 - you're more likely to win thedailydraw than Bananalotto - which has also recently scrapped the 50p prize which is a shame. not that i'm worried about 50p - but it IS nice to win something every now and again. All sites using adverts like this seem to be in trouble - especially pay to surf programmes, such as Surfmiles which has recently closed. While it lasts it's quite a good program, despite having to wait until I win anything at the moment. Sites like this seem to work best when you signup to several and play them all every day - after all, why not - it's a chance of some free money at the end of the day!!

                              This website is yet another lottery website where you could win anything up to £1,000,000! And, it costs you absolutely nothing to play! Based in the UK, The prize money is:- 6 numbers = £1,000,000 5 numbers = £5,000 4 numbers = £25 The odds on this is greater than the national lottery itself. But, as they say, you've got to be in it to win it! Register with the site first to be able to play it. Each time the draw has taken place, an email will be sent to you with the numbers which have been generated, and how many of the numbers you chosen came up. I haven't got more than 1 number up yet! You can refer a friend, make it your homepage, add it to your favourites, and see who their partners are. Another game to play is 'The Accumulator'. Each day, they will count how many numbers you matched in that day's draw. If you match 6 numbers in a month, then you will automatically be entered into the prize draw. The prize is a weekend break in a hotel, the use of a dream car, and £250 spending money. Not bad, eh? Well, all in all, it's not a bad site really. It's nice and bright, but the odds are slightly high to get all 6 numbers up.

                                It is inevitable that any free online lottery site is going to be compared to the venerable old Bananalotto, simply because it's a common reference point that everyone's heard of. First, though, let's have a rundown of the features of TheDailyDraw.com. Once registered, you can play once per day. You choose six numbers between 1 and 64 and click on an advertising banner. You are taken to the advertiser's web site and your numbers are entered into a draw - simple. The prizes are (as usual) a million quid for the unlikely event of matching all six numbers (remember that the numbers range from 1 to 64 so the chances of winning are many times less than the National Lottery). There are also prizes for matching 5 numbers (5 grand) and 4 numbers (25 quid), but nothing for three numbers. Since I've not won anything yet, I can't tell you how you efficient the prize despatching team are! There are a couple of other incentives to come back and play regularly. First, for a limited time (May-July 2001), members of the MyPoints reward scheme (a useful scheme in itself, and well worth joining) receive 25 points per month if they play at least 8 times. Secondly, there's the "accumulator" where for every six numbers you match per month you get one entry into a prize draw. Currently, the prize is a luxury weekend away. So, for example, if I play 4 times and match 1 number, 2 numbers, 2 numbers and 1 number I gain one accumulator entry even though none of my individual games were winners. OK, so now the Bananalotto comparisons. Well, you'll have noticed there's no equivalent to the 50p prize. This is a big mistake. Although the 50 pences are effectively worthless, they provide that little extra incentive to play. With this game, you could play religiously for years and get nothing. Boredom would soon set in. Just like the £10 wins on the National Lottery, the Bananalotto 50p wins (a daily player would exp
                                ect one about every 8 weeks, and a fiver maybe once a year) provide a sort of sense of achievement that has you coming back for more. Thankfully, the MyPoints points provide the incentive to play for me, and I hope they continue it beyond the trial period. The other noticable difference to Bananalotto is that the site is a little less polished. For example, your username is your email address, and you have to type it in every time you play. One nice feature though, is a "slow connection" version of the site which removes much of the "eye-candy" from the pages. However, the site employs one of my pet peeves: the adverts open in a new window that grows itself to fullscreen and refuses to shrink. To me, this is like walking into someone's house without knocking - I chose the size of my browser window for a good reason, and my software should respect that! So, in summary, not bad. It's worth playing this game but not at the expense of giving up Bananalotto. Since you're unlikely to ever see a cash prize, hurry and join MyPoints as well, then at least you'll have something to show for your efforts.
