FreeLotto’s $2 million jackpot winner tells his story

FreeLotto’s recent $2 million jackpot winner, José Reis who lives in France, offers the following advice to all lottery players:

“Be relentless and never lose hope.”

Mr. Reis began playing FreeLotto in 2008 and would check his emails every day.

Over time, he stopped reading his FreeLotto emails every day and would only check every now and then. But he kept playing.

Then came the big day when his numbers matched the jackpot. And his official email from FreeLotto congratulating him on his win sat in his inbox, unopened.

The email sat for a few days until the subject caught his attention. He won?

He opened his email and his first reaction was that it was a scam. Two million dollars!

He read it carefully over and over. The language was pretty clear. He was a winner.

The email did not say he was eligible to win. The email didn’t ask him to purchase anything first. The email did not require him to provide a credit card or pay a fee upfront. None of that. The email just said he won.

So he emailed the FreeLotto office in New York City, not exactly sure what to expect back.

“We were wondering why he hadn’t contacted us sooner,” said a FreeLotto prize official.

A phone call was set up and the details were confirmed. Arrangements were made for a FreeLotto representative to go to his house and set up a photo shoot.

The realization that he was $2 million richer was now sinking in.

Mr. Reis needed to sign documents and understand and take care of his tax obligations.

Then came the publicity photo shoot, followed by a video interview.

Indeed, his dreams were coming true.

Mr. Reis said he plans to use the money for his children’s education, finish up some remodeling projects around his home, and to travel.

He also will be donating a portion of his winnings to National Amnesty, one of the FreeLotto supported charity programs.

His final advice to other FreeLotto players: “Check your emails!”

You may not be an immediate winner, but you have to play to have a chance of winning $11 million. If you enjoy scratch-off games and playing state lotteries, you’ll love FreeLotto. The odds are similar to state-run lotteries, except you can play for free.

Latest $2 Million FreeLotto Winner Announced

Congratulations to José Reis from France! Mr. Reis is FreeLotto’s most recent multi-million dollar jackpot winner.

He joins an exclusive club of people made instantly rich by FreeLotto.

“C’est vraiment fantastique!” he exclaimed when informed he had won and could now make some of his wishes come true.

Mr. Reis didn’t purchase his ticket from any convenience store or have to come into our office to claim his prize. Instead, he played for free right from his own home. And we traveled to France to give him his money. How great is that?

And he didn’t have to give a credit card or pay anything first to claim his jackpot. Of course, he will have to pay his French government a nice sum for taxes, but that’s out of our control and comes from being nouveau riche.

We also shot a video which we’ll be posting shortly.

We’ll post a more details about the winner over the next few days.

If you want to win a few million dollars, play FreeLotto right now. It’s free and the odds are similar to your favorite state lotteries. And who knows, we could be bringing a big check to your house soon!

Is FreeLotto a Scam?

Google “FreeLotto and scam” and you’ll find plenty of results challenging the legitimacy of the service and detailing customer complaints.

It certainly does seem too good to be true. After all, playing a game of chance where you can win real money for free does seem like it should come with a catch.

Well, there is no catch. It is a legitimate service and company, and after reading this you’ll understand how it all works – and makes sense.

Prevent yourself from becoming a victim of a scam: FreeLotto will never ask you for money before sending you your winnings. If someone does, he or she is a scam artist. Hang up the phone and don’t reply to emails or texts. If you think you are a FreeLotto winner, check out this page and click the first FAQ

U.S.-Based Company

FreeLotto.com is owned by PlasmaNet Inc., a U.S.-based company with headquarters in midtown Manhattan. It has millions of members, generates revenue, pays taxes and is governed by all the applicable federal and state laws, statutes and regulations related to this industry.

FreeLotto.com offers its members an opportunity to play a game of chance for free and has been doing so for more than 15 years.

 

Principles Behind Every Sweepstakes

The basic principles behind FreeLotto’s games are the same as every other sweepstakes, and works just like those run by countries, states, multinational companies and local religious organizations.

It is a game of chance where the odds increase with the size of the winnings.

As is true for any legitimate sweepstakes, do you have a chance to win? Absolutely. Are the odds long? Absolutely. But there are people who win – just ask one of our 21 millionaires!

Here’s a list of recent winners.

In fact the odds of winning FreeLotto are similar to any sweepstakes with similar size prizes and numbers to match. The math works out the same.

 

What About Those Online Complaints?

There are 2 primary responses to those complaints.

But first, please understand that we take every legitimate complaint seriously and try to resolve each one fairly. So if you have a real complaint, contact us.

Now to the primary responses.

1. Unscrupulous Con Artists

Unfortunately, part of living in a free society includes having to deal with frauds, scammers, and con artists, as anyone knows who has dealt with:

  • The Nigerian Letter/Email scam where the scammers send you an email and offer you a share in a large sum of money if you transfer a small amount to them first
  • Telemarketing Fraud where a caller tries to trick you into giving up your bank information for a free gift
  • Identity Theft where scammers use your identity to rack up credit card debit
  • Ponzi Schemes where an organization pays returns to its investors from new capital paid to the operators by new investors, rather than from profit earned by the organization

Scammers also pretend to represent FreeLotto and attempt to defraud people who then believe FreeLotto is to blame.

Are a good percentage of online complaints about FreeLotto the result of scammers? Yes. And we try to warn everyone about it as much as possible. In fact if you do Google “FreeLotto Scam,” you’ll see our warning tops the results page.

FreeLotto’s Scam Warning Page

We even built a website called freelottoscam.com to help raise awareness of the scammers.

But clearly not all complaints are about scammers.

2. Legitimate Customer Complaints

Unfortunately, not every customer is a happy customer at any company in any industry.

As hard as we try, sometimes it’s not enough. Sometimes there’s a misunderstanding. And sometimes, some people just aren’t satisfied.

And that’s common for any organization.

Let’s look at pissedconsumer.com.

Search FreeLotto and you’ll find us there with a 2.2 rating and around 170 complaints.

FreeLotto page

Now search for the major U.S. department store Macy’s. Its rating is a 2.1 with more than 670 complaints.

Macy’s page

How about the gold standard of customer satisfaction Apple? Its rating is a 2.2 with 160 complaints and counting.

Apple’s page

You get the point.

Having angry customers does not mean the company is running a scam. It means the company is running a business with lots of customers.

The question is percentage.

We literally have tens of millions of players.

If FreeLotto were a scam, would we really be able to fool so many people for so long? No.

So, in the end, if you enjoy playing sweepstakes, play FreeLotto. Have fun. And who knows, you could become rich! After all, we’ve awarded over $100 million in cash and prizes, and we’re not finished yet!


Typhoon Survivor Wins Jackpot

A survivor of Typhoon Ketsana who has chosen not to release her name to the public was one of the three winners of the P30 million lotto jackpot in the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes on December 19, 2012. Typhoon Ketsana struck the Philippines in September of 2009 and was recorded as the most devastating storm to ever hit Manila. The storm resulted in 747 deaths and damages of $1.09 billion in the northern and central areas of Luzon.

The winner and her family members have been living in an evacuation center in Pampanga since their home was destroyed in 2009. She plans to use her winnings to buy a house and lot, donate a portion to her Church, and save some of it for her only son’s future.

The numbers she played were 14-22-17-10-06-26, the same ones she’s been playing for several years.


Afghanistan War Veteran Wins $10,000.00 Prize from FreeLotto

Sgt. Maj. Ruby Murray of Spring Lake, North Carolina, signed up for a FreeLotto F.A.S.T. account on July 28, 2004 and, in her words, “kinda forgot [she] was still playing.” FreeLotto is an online lottery-style sweepstakes where users play for the chance to win over $11,000,000.00 in daily prizes. Ruby won ninety-eight 3rd and 4th place prizes, worth $1 and $5 respectively, the majority of which she donated to charities, including the Disabled American Veterans, through FreeLotto’s Click2Give Charity program in the years leading up to her grand prize win.

About four years ago, Ruby decided to change her numbers and continued playing the games with those same picks – 3, 16, 17, 23, 25 and 28. On September 9, 2012, Ruby won the jackpot prize in the $10,000 Fast Cash drawing – her 99th cash win from FreeLotto.com.

The win couldn’t have come at a better time. Ruby had returned home from serving a year in Afghanistan in March 2012. Soon after, her father passed away. In addition to the pain of losing her father, Ruby also learned that his life insurance had lapsed, leaving her with the funeral costs. In the midst of this crisis, Ruby received a package from FreeLotto stating that she had won the $10,000 jackpot prize.

Initially, Ruby thought it couldn’t be real. She couldn’t believe that she had actually won. In spite of her skepticism, she certified the package, had it notarized and sent it back to the FreeLotto office. When Ruby received a phone call from FreeLotto, she learned that she did indeed win the money that she so desperately needed.

Ruby’s fortune in a time of need allowed her to pay for her father’s funeral proceedings. “God had worked out a miracle,” Ruby said, “when God gives you a financial blessing, it comes in multitudes.” Ruby intends to stay on as a FreeLotto member and believes she will win again. “There’s so much I want to do for homeless people in this country,” Ruby said. Her dreams of opening a homeless shelter are closer to becoming realized with her lucky break from FreeLotto.

Lucky Swedish Winner Walks Away With $100,000.00 Prize

FreeLotto.com Awards 2nd $100,000.00 Jackpot in Sweden This Year

Anders Svensson, 57, from Kristdala, Sweden has recently won $100,000.00 from FreeLotto.com. He discovered the website in February of 2011 and quickly became a F.A.S.T. subscriber electing to have his self-selected numbers automatically played in six daily drawings, seven days a week.

When Svensson received his first prize installment of his $100,000.00 jackpot win, he told the FreeLotto Prize Team, “I don’t consider myself a lucky guy…15 months after I started I got lucky.” He may not have considered himself lucky but Svensson actually won small cash prizes ten times before he hit the jackpot. He donated the $1.00 prizes to a handful of different charities that participate in FreeLotto’s Click2Give program including: ACTION for Child Protection, Cancer Treatment Research Foundation, National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and Child Welfare Fund International.

Though he hasn’t yet decided how he will spend the prize money, Svensson and his three kids, 19 year old triplets, are very excited. “This win isn’t going to change anything, really, but me and my children can now spoil ourselves a little more,” Svensson said.

Earlier this year another player from Sweden, Johan Wallen, also claimed a $100,000.00 jackpot prize from FreeLotto.


Friday the 13th Turns Out Lucky for Retired Navy Submarine Sailor

Harold Million FreeLotto FastCash winnerHarold Miller, 65, has been playing the same set of numbers since 2010, a compilation of his family’s birthdays. On Friday, April 13th, Miller matched 6 out of 6 and won a $10,000.00 cash jackpot on FreeLotto.com, an online lottery style sweepstakes.

Miller has been a long time daily player of the free game. For nearly a month after he won, he continued to play the game daily but did not bother checking the winning numbers from the previous day’s drawings. On May 9th, Miller sat down at his computer and remembered that it had been a while since he last checked the winning numbers, so he visited the FreeLotto results page. Lucky for Miller he did because he had less than a week left to claim his prize.
“Not in my wildest imagination did I believe that I would win,” Miller told the Prize Team, “I had to look at it twice!” Miller immediately picked up the phone to call his wife and together they shared the good news with their fourteen children, eight of whom are adopted. The whole family is very excited.

The Millers have incurred some debt moving their family from the Philippines and both have had to continue working part time at Nellis Air Force base since retiring. “A real relief,” is how Harold Miller described the win. It will enable him to pay off some debt and afford a second car for the family.


Expecting Parents Win $100,000.00 Jackpot Online

Johan Wallen $100,000.00 FreeLotto WinnerJohan Wallen and his wife have a big month ahead with the delivery of their second child and first prize check.
Johan Wallen and his wife will receive two blessings in May. The first is the birth of their second child due May 11th. The second is a prize check from FreeLotto.com, an online lotto style sweepstakes where Wallen recently won a $100,000.00 jackpot prize. May looks to be a very exciting month for the Wallen family.

Johan Wallen, a car mechanic in his homeland of Sweden, discovered the sweepstakes website in October of 2008 while surfing the web. Wallen quickly decided to take advantage of an optional service offered on the website called the FreeLotto Automatic Subscription Ticket (F.A.S.T.) which automatically plays the numbers he selected in 6 drawings every day for a small monthly fee.

“I’m very lucky to be a winner. I’m not a rich man,” Wallen told the prize team at FreeLotto when they called to congratulate him on his big win. When he received the win notification in his email inbox, Wallen screamed with joy and immediately called his family, friends, and coworkers to share the incredible news. Many of his friends have joined the website since then in hopes of winning a prize themselves. Wallen plans to use the $100,000.00 prize winnings to buy a boat and support his expanding family.


Small Donations Add Up Big – Sweepstakes Winners Donate Over $13,000.00 Through FreeLotto Click2Give Program

So far this year, $13,387.00 has been donated to charity by FreeLotto winners through the Click2GiveCharity program. The website, a lotto style sweepstakes, offers six free daily games where players have the chance to win money for free. Prizes awarded range from $1.00 to $10,000,000.00.

The Click2Give charity program was created in 2003, about four years after the cash sweepstakes was launched. The idea behind its genesis was that while a $1.00 or $5.00 check would have little impact on an individual’s life, together these small prizes could have a meaningful impact on the world. FreeLotto has partnered with 24 non-profit organizations including Amnesty International, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Child Welfare Fund International, Disabled American Veterans, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Meals On Wheels, National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and The Smile Train.

The game play is similar in style to a lottery, where a player selects a set of numbers in hopes of matching the winning numbers in the drawing. If a player matches three of six numbers on the $1,000,000.00 Classic FreeLotto game, they win $1.00; four of six correct earns them $5.00. Upon a win, a user is notified by email and then must confirm with their transaction serial number (TSN) which they receive after each FreeBet. Upon confirming their win, the winners receive a second email with the option to donate the prize to charity or have the winnings sent to them by postal mail. If they decide to donate, they can click on the link provided and chose a charity of their choice.

While most of the donations come from the small prizes, jackpot winners are also given the opportunity to make a donation to the Click2Give participating charities. Just last December, Knud Møller, a $2,000,000.00 winner chose to donate $10,000.00 of his prize winnings to Child Welfare Fund International, an organization that works to strengthen non-governmental child welfare agencies and organizations in nearly fifty developing countries around the world and to assist child welfare leaders in their direct and indirect service to needy children and their families. Mary Ellen Rood, President of Child Welfare Fund International said it “was such a wonderful surprise that we re-read it a number of times, trying to comprehend the generosity of such a gift.”

Since the Click2Give program launched, FreeLotto players have donated a total of $1,149,357.18.


Bulgarian Man Wins $100,000.00 in Online Lottery Style Sweepstakes

Bulgarian native Zhivko Zhelev joined FreeLotto.com on July 23, 2009. The website is the largest online lotto style sweepstakes, with over $11,000,000.00 in daily prizes available to be won. Zhelev is just one of FreeLotto’s many international winners, including Raja Khan from Lahore, Pakistan; Alejandro Llano from Mexico City, Mexico; William Herriott from Glasgow, Scotland; and Eric Prevost from Calvados, France.
While Zhelev had joined the site in July 2009, he began playing regularly, placing free “bets” on all six daily FreeLotto games, in October 2010. Games include the $1 Million Cash Classic, Win a Car, Pay Off Your Mortgage, $10,000 FastCash, $100,000 GiveAway, and SuperBucks, the $10 million jackpot game. On November 23, 2010, Zhelev matched all six numbers in the FreeLotto Pay Off Your Mortgage drawing, winning $100,000 to be paid out in 5 yearly installments of $20,000 each.
Zhelev used his first prize check to remodel his home in Bulgaria. He performed much of the labor himself, installing balusters to the front of his house. Zhelev received his 2nd prize check on the 5th of this month. The average annual salary in Bulgaria is $5,500, so this win can have a dramatic impact on Zhelev’s life and his ability to give back to his community. He told the prize team at FreeLotto that he plans to use this installment to support his son’s education at Veliko Turnovo University and to “buy clothes and food for street children in Bulgaria.” Orphaned, homeless and often exploited, “street children” are in need of great support. A representative of FreeLotto said that, “FreeLotto is proud that this winner plans to help others with his good fortune.” Zhelev says the money will also provide him the freedom to pursue his personal dream of becoming a published author of books and poetry.
Zhelev continues to be a loyal FreeLotto player and hopes to win more jackpots in the future.

FreeLotto Win Saves California Woman from Eviction

Candace Penner, a 44-year-old single mother, joined FreeLotto.com on January 16, 2008. FreeLotto is an online lottery-style sweepstakes where users can play for free for the chance to win over $11,000,000.00 in daily cash prizes. Only a few months after registering, she hit the jackpot on May 19, 2008 by matching all six winning numbers in the $100,000.00 Giveaway game. The prize payments for that game are paid in 5 annual installments of $20,000.00 each. Penner is scheduled to receive her 4th installment this month.

Since Penner was laid off from her job in July of 2008 these prize winnings have been her primary source of income, literally keeping a roof over her and her son’s head. She has been careful with the prize money, paying her rent and other expenses up front for a full year after cashing each installment and then dividing the remainder to keep her going each month. Penner is no longer able to work due to a number of medical conditions and is in the process of trying to secure Social Security and Disability Benefits, so that she will have some income when her prize payments run out.

When Penner received her 3rd prize payment in 2011, she emailed the FreeLotto Prize Department to say that, “words cannot express my deepest feelings of gratitude I have for you and your company. I really didn’t know what else to do, or where to go if it wasn’t for you. FreeLotto gave me a 5 year income when I was looking at homelessness. I will never forget this.”

A representative of FreeLotto’s Prize Department said that “the awards to people like Candace are the best part of my job. I feel so lucky that we have the opportunity to award money to people and sometimes that can be life-changing. FreeLotto is proud of the ways in which we have helped our winners have a better life.”

Penner still plays FreeLotto.com nearly every day and hopes to pick the winning numbers on another jackpot in the future. Since her big win in 2008, she has won twenty-four small prizes.

Knud Møller becomes FreeLotto’s 23rd Millionaire

Knud wins playing FreeLotto

$2,000,000.00 FreeLotto Winner

Knud Møller, a 57 year old father of three from Greenland, became a $2,000,000.00 winner on October 25, 2011. Like many, Møller faced financial hardship over the past few years. When he came across FreeLotto.com ®, a website that offers players six daily games with a chance to win over $11,000,000.00, he was excited about the opportunity.

Møller played the free game initially but after two weeks decided to take advantage of the FreeLotto Automatic Subscription Ticket (F.A.S.T.) optional service that automatically plays a user’s lucky numbers for all six games every day, as well as, FreeLotto’s Prize Doubler option that doubles a player’s winnings automatically. He selected his numbers for all six games, a combination of his family’s birthdays, submitted his credit card to pay the small monthly service fee, and hoped for the best.

Over the first few months of his F.A.S.T. membership, Møller won a handful of small prizes including $5.00 which he donated to Child Welfare Fund International through FreeLotto’s Click2Give charity program. The Click2Give program enables prize winners to donate all or a portion of their prize winnings to one of 23 charities that participate in the program. FreeLotto’s Click2Give charity program was started in 2003 and to date players have donated a total of $1,139,445.18.

When Møller won the jackpot on October 25, 2011, he was totally surprised and didn’t quite believe it. The prize will be paid in annual installments of $80,000.00 over the course of twenty-five years. Møller has already decided to donate $10,000.00 to Child Welfare Fund International, saying, “I have always wanted to support welfare work for kids. It is a cause that is close to my heart.”

During the interview, Møller told the FreeLotto Prize Team, that he is “very thankful and very happy,” and said the win will make him “free from economic worries. My liberty will be much greater in relation to now – I will feel much more at ease with the daily expenses.” He plans to use the winnings to support his children, specifically their educations as well as save for a house in Nuuk, the capital city. He plans to keep his job with the Greenland government where he works as a translator because he loves it, but will take a few months off in the summertime to enjoy his win, take a trip to Denmark, and spend time on his hobbies – boating, fishing, and hiking along the fjords.
