Freelottofest is an online website that allows players to participate in a select number of lottery competitions completely free.
This website was set up by “Harry Dazzle”. Harry Dazzle is described as a true and loyal lottery fan who played the lotteries every week for 25 years with hopes of winning the jackpot someday. Then, one day fortune came his way when he won the jackpot. Harry Dazzle spent the next few years enjoying his new-won money while contemplating the entire time if winning a lottery should have been as hard as having a 25 years long commitment. With this in mind, Harry brought to virtual life the Freelottofest website to make it easier for players to play for millions every day.

Lotteries and Software
Freelottofest has a USP that sets it apart from many online lottery websites. Members and lottery fans who have subscribed will not have to spend time purchasing tickets, choosing numbers and waiting for draws for a small probability of winning any money. At this website, members are offered the opportunities to play for millions of dollars every day of the week. Apart from this they also receive two different chances to wager on winning the biggest jackpot every day. And above all, a player does not have to spend any money to participate in the lotto competitions. It is absolutely FREE.
The first step to playing free lottery competitions is to register at the Freelottofest website. Like any other website, the registering process here is crucial and mistakes on any of the registered information (such as contact number, e-mail address etc.) could lead to rejecting the claim of any prize money won. And this will solely be the responsibility of the player. Post registration, the players move on to choosing the numbers. The competitions offered in the website asks the players to choose few numbers from within a range. Once the players choose the combination of numbers according to their liking, the entries are submitted to the website. Now, the players can sit back, relax and wait for their prize money. Based on the type of membership the players have subscribed for they will be alerted if they have won anything. The WinFest subscribers will get a personal e-mail alerting them of their wins and letting them know to collect their prize money. The list of winners is also made available for players to check if they prefer manual confirmation.
How does a website offering no charge games work?
- WinFest Subscriptions: WinFest is an automated membership package open to players from different parts of the world. This process is completely automated. Similarly, the process of checking the results and claiming prizes is also automated. The subscribers pay a small fee to be able to remain members of this package.
- Revenue from advertisements: The brand is run by the income from advertisements that is done through the website. This could be noted as one of the negative points about the website. It has a lot of advertisements. But for what the brand is offering, it makes sense that it would depend on advertisements. One of the best things about the website is that it states straightforwardly to its members that it runs on ads and explains why. This shows a good brand value.
- Revenue from surveys: The website describes this to be revenue that pays the bills. The members of the website are sometimes asked to take part in surveys when they visit the website. These are surveys that are conducted by external brands and Freelottofest receives payment for conducting allowing brands to conduct surveys of their website. All of the monies generated in these three methods go to into the pool of competition prizes.
The structure within which Freelottofest works does not allow it to offer the traditional lotteries that are player globally. Rather, this website offers player free competitions that they can participate in every day. These are a total of seven games offered and they are named game 1, game 2 and so on until game 7. Players have the chance of winning $1000 in game one up to $5,000,000 in game 10. All the details of these games are explained on the website.

There's no app published, but the website is responsive to match mobile smartphone screens. Both platforms have simple design, which makes the responsive layout easy to implement. The website is functional as there's little depth to the gameplay offered. Simple, yet effective, considering the lotto options.
Playing is completely free. you can read about the business logic (?!) just above.

Is FreeLottoFest legit or fraud?
The Freelottofest website is owned by a company registered in Cyprus. The head office for the company is also here. Operations are handled in different countries. The Freelottofest website is safe for google browsing, has a registered domain and uses HTTPS (SSL) connection. Freelottofest has not been alerted for any scams so far. However, it is important to note that it can easily be mixed up with “freelotto.com” which sounds very similar. The freelotto website has been alerted for scams and speculated to be a farce website.
The business model doesn't make any sense, the jackpot is unreal. There are mixed reviews and legitimacy signal by users, but their trustworthiness is in doubt. I can't say this is a legit operator with no fraudulent intentions.
Freelottofest is a website that has challenged the usual structure in which lottery websites operate. It challenged it to the extent it is unreal and leaning towards the fantasy world. But despite this, it has found success and has been doing a good job keeping some members and players happy – based on some questionable signals on review sites and social media.
