Given the success of the Free Postcode Lottery website it's perhaps no surprise to see similar prize sites popping up. The latest to surface is called Lucky Phone which gives you the chance to win cash prizes every day. It's free to play and all you have to do is register your details and check the site daily.
Registering with Lucky Phone is simple. You enter your a few details and are then required to verify your email account. Only once your account is activated are you prompted for a phone number. Your number is then verified with an automated call - don't worry it's free - you must take this call as it includes a four number code.
Now you don't need to enter a phone number to play Lucky Phone. When you register you'll be allocated a 9 digit number to play in the Lucky Dip prize draw. Note that this is currently one of two prize draws that are available at Lucky Phone. The main draw which offers a £10 prize is for those players who have entered their telephone number. The Lucky Dip draw currently only has a £5 prize.
Like Free Postcode Lottery you will need to visit the site daily to see if you've won. Lucky Phone will show the last 9 digits of the winners number drawn at random. If they are your numbers then you need to be the first to claim. Only one winner is guaranteed! If someone else has the same 9 digits in their phone number then they collect loyalty points instead.
The site aims to eventually generate enough money from adverts so that it can fund the daily prizes. If the prize game increases in popularity then you'd anticipate that the prize money will increase. Lucky Phone does say that they won't sell your details or use your telephone number for anything else other than the prize draw.
What's The Catch?
So is there a catch? Well as is the case with FPL probably not! However we do wonder whether people will be as keen to share their phone numbers to enter a prize draw as they have been to share a postcode? Also can another free game of this ilk attract the same kind of player numbers so as to make the prizes competitive compared to FPL? FPL themselves tried another game called Birthday Bingo which didn't quite work out.
