Lucktastic Fraud Awareness

Hey Lucktastic fans,

We’ve noticed a growing number of Lucktastic scammers and imposters.

The most recent scam attempts we’ve seen are fake Facebook pages reaching out to Lucktastic players. Sometimes these pages look exactly like ours and pretend to be a Lucktastic “Claim Agent” (Examples: Bob At-Lucktastic, Lucktastic Agent-Alex, James At-Lucktastic). Just so you know: we do NOT have claim agent pages… Our one and only facebook page is this one: We will NEVER contact you from another page; that means we do not have claim agent pages, CEO pages, executive pages, or manager pages.

The following are examples of SCAM PAGES:

Some recent Facebook scams we’ve seen have even taken the images of real people. They have contacted players stating they won the $1,000,000.00 contest and will have to pay $299 in order to claim their winnings.

There are a couple things wrong with this picture folks. Firstly, we will NEVER ask you to pay to claim any prize won from playing Lucktastic. Secondly, our $1,000,000 contest winner will be drawn on December 31st, 2016. If anyone has contacted you stating you’ve won $1,000,000.00 from Lucktastic prior to that, it is simply false.

If you’ve been contacted by a scammer or anyone you believe to be fraudulent, please report it to us immediately. The more details you provide, the more we will know about new scam attempts, and the better equipped we will be in raising awareness and protecting our players!

Is it really Lucktastic or is it a SCAM?

Hey Lucktastic fans,

We do our best to ensure playing Lucktastic is an enjoyable and safe experience for everyone. Recently, we’ve noticed that there are a growing number of scammers using our name and pretending to be us. It’s important for you to recognize and report these fraudulent attempts as soon as possible. This will help us protect you and all future Lucktastic players.

The easiest way to spot a Lucktastic scam or a Lucktastic impersonator is by what they ask of you; we will NEVER require you to provide a payment of any kind in order to play Lucktastic or claim a prize you’ve won. Lucktastic is free, and this simply goes against everything we do!

Another good way to spot a Lucktastic scammer is by noting how you were contacted. Unless the communication was received from one of our confirmed channels, it is not us. Confirmation, support, and correspondence emails will always be received from:

Should you chose to ever communicate with us on a social channel, here are our verified social pages:

The more we know about potential scammers, the better equipped we will be to deal with them and maintain an enjoyable, safe, and FREE way to earn real prizes and rewards from your mobile device!

Meeting Lorinda N., Lucktastic’s $25,000.00 Contest Winner!

Hey there,

Darren from Lucktastic here, and I wanted to share my experience meeting our very first $25,000 contest winner. Since $25,000 was our biggest cash payout, we flew out to meet her and present the check in-person!

Bright and early on a Monday morning, my coworker Rowena and I headed to NYC’s LaGuardia airport. Two flights and a short drive later, we found ourselves outside of Lorinda’s home in Burlingame, Kansas. Our mission? To deliver her $25,000 contest winner check!

Now this could be the native New Yorker in me, but being greeted by a complete stranger’s huge smile and giant hug can seem like a foreign concept — Lorinda greeted us with both! She warmly welcomed us into her home, where we set up for her interview amidst a full house of family members.

The one thing I will never forget? Her reaction once we handed her the check. The sheer emotion, the tears of joy, her family’s faces; I could tell we had just changed Lorinda’s life…

After the interview, we stayed and chatted with them for a bit. Although there was no shortage of family, her husband couldn’t be there when we arrived. So naturally, we decided to prank call him; saying we never showed up… After a couple of minutes the prank became too painful for my taste, and I cracked. I shouted over the phone “She’s joking! We’re here! At your house! With her winnings!” He was absolutely blown away.

And with that, we drove off into the sunset (literally) to award another Lucktastic big cash winner. You may have seen him around: Nebraska’s Ted D., $5,000 scratch card winner!

This is why we do what we do; we make lives better — for FREE!

Happy scratching everyone! I simply cannot wait to meet Lucktastic’s very first $1,000,000 contest winner.

Meeting Mary C, our first $10,000 Scratch Card Winner

I recently had the privilege of traveling to Greenville, NC to present Mary C, our first $10,000 scratch card winner, her winning check. Since Mary was our largest winner to date, we wanted to personally congratulate her and film our infamous Lucktastic LuckCam in person.

Accompanied by my coworker Janice, we headed out bright and early on a Wednesday morning to catch our flight down to Charlotte. From Charlotte, we made a quick transfer to Greenville, a small town in eastern North Carolina. Once we landed, we only had a short drive to Mary’s home. As we pulled down Mary’s street, we weren’t completely sure which house was hers. But we were quickly greeted by Mary, who had been waiting for us by the window.

One of the absolute best parts of our job is getting to see the faces of our winners when we present them with their check. Mary was absolutely beaming and so thrilled to welcome us into her home and film the LuckCam. She was truly overjoyed and told us of her plans to use the money to start her own woodworking business. She even showed us some of the unique pieces she plans on making.

All in all, it was a perfect day (that even having to sprint across the Charlotte airport to catch my connecting flight back to New York couldn’t put a damper on).

How to Take a Selfie

Hey Folks,

We have winners and reward redeemers EVERYDAY on Lucktastic. No wonder we get so many winner selfies!

We’d love to be able to use all the selfies we receive. Unfortunately, we get a lot of selfies that are poor quality, in bad lighting, or simply do not follow directions, and sadly we cannot use them.

Below are some tips on how to take the best selfie and guarantee your winning pic will be featured across our social pages in the future:

  1. Make sure the camera is in focus and not blurry. You don’t need to have a HD camera phone to take a great pic. Just hold the camera steady and make sure it is focused on your face before snapping your selfie.  selfieBlog

  2. Good lighting is key. Natural lighting is the best, but any well lit room will do the trick. Just make sure there is no reflection behind you (think a mirror or window).  selfieBlog_02

  3. Hold the camera directly in front of you and make sure to get the prize in the shot. It sounds pretty simple, but this will guarantee we can feature both you and the prize at the best angle.  selfieBlog_03

  4. Smile! You just won an awesome reward or prize. Show the world how excited you are.

  5. Have fun and get creative.

As long as it’s in good lighting and focused, we’ll do our best to get you out there, like some of these awesome winners!

Thank You from Lucktastic
