Hey Mamas! I don’t know about you, but as a mom of 3 I am always looking for a way to save money or make money. With Christmas around the corner, any additional income is totally welcome, especially if it’s fun.
Lucktastic is a free mobile app for Android users that allows you to play scratch cards, enter big-money contests, and win cash prizes, gift cards, or other fun prizes right from your phone! Did you catch that it’s free?
Even though Lucktastic sounds too good to be true. The good news it is not a scam. You do not even have to enter any financial information.
Now Lucktastic is not a get rich quick thing unless you happen to win one of the top prizes. But you can play on your phone to get entries to win gift cards from Walmart or Amazon all for free!
How does Lucktastic make money if it’s a free app?
While using the app you will have the opportunity to view some ads before being able to get to the scratch-off card. I didn’t find it much of a big deal in exchange for the opportunity to earn gift cards to stores I already shop at or even big money prizes or a weekend getaway.
How Lucktastic Works & How You Can Win
First, you download the app which is free on the Google Play store. Then, you will be prompted to enter your zip code. Next, it gives you instructions on how to play and possibly win.
It’s easy to try your luck and see if you can win!
- You click on a scratch-off card.
- You use your finger to “scratch” (more like swipe) the scratch-off and reveal the prize boxes.
- Match 3 of the winning symbols. They are different depending on the card.
- Reveal the Bonus box. This is what you win even if you don’t get all 3 winning symbols.
- After playing you will be asked to log in. You can choose through Facebook, Gmail, or a few other options.
- Continue collecting tokens by going through more scratch cards.
How much was I able to make with Lucktastic?
After 3 hours and about 20 scratch cards later I made $1.25, got 59 contest entry tickets for giveaways, and got halfway to a $5 Dunkin Donuts gift card. (For moms, free coffee is very important! We even have a guide to coffee shops in Miami all based on suggestions from moms like you!)
Now, don’t make the mistake I made and use all your money on giveaways unless you want to.
To cash out or put your tokens towards a gift card you simply click your profile in the top left corner. There you will be given the option of redeeming for cash or gift cards.
There you will also be given the choice of getting more tokens. You can take surveys (depends on the survey but about 10 tokens per survey), watch videos (earn 5 tokens for each video), try their partners (download their partner’s apps and earn tokens based on the app) or download the partner app of the day (and earn tokens based on the app).
Is Lucktastic a get rich quick app where you make thousands into one day? Not really, unless you are super lucky and land one of their big prizes! However, if you are on your phone anyways why not spend a few minutes daily trying your luck? You may earn a little spending money or possibly winning something big.
To me, it’s worth a shot! It’s kind of like a scratch-off that you would purchase at a gas station, except it’s free and you can play every day!
