It’s a straightforward app with a little to no learning curve and completely free-for-play to citizens living within the United States.
Naturally, the big thousand dollar grand prizes of cash are available but winning them is very, very rare.
The grand prize of each scratcher range from 25 tokens to $10,000 actual cash dollars. Some scratch cards with small token prize are almost always guaranteed wins which means you will receive 75 coins a day for free playing them.
How to Download Lucktastic
Lucktastic is an app available to download for iPhone and Android.
First, download the app here.
Second, enter your US ZIP code to confirm you’re an American resident with location sharing on.
This will allow the app to function properly and show you targeted ads. Lucktastic will show you a quick demo tutorial on how to play. Afterward, you are free to explore the app.
All scratch off cards refreshes and renew at 5 a.m. EST each and every morning.
Is Lucktastic a Scam?
No, it is a free-to-play mobile game that requires zero upfront costs. Their parent company “Jump Ramp Games” started back in 2014 and employes 11-40 people. They have an A rating on BBB.
Lucktastic runs on ad-revenues by other companies and Lucktatstic shares the revenue via prizes to their users.
Online, Lucktastic has been able to verify cash winners in the past making it not likely a “scam.”
With that said, don’t click on any unknown third-party ads or hand over any personal information, you should be good.
The app currently holds a 4.2 rating in the Google Playstore with thousands of reviewers.
However, Lucktastic is not quick nor guaranteed money. Some users have been playing Lucktastic for years and never won a few dollars a month. The app is based on pure luck and does take patience with no guarantees at riches. It is rare to find a winning scratch card even from year-long Lucktastic user veterans. The odds are very slim – much like regular lotto jackpots.
How Is It Played?
Lucktastic is a game based on pure luck. Many scratchers come close to winning but the vast majority of the time do not win but a few tokens.
For example, Lucktastic reward scratch cards reward consecutive day sign-ins.
In order to access the $5,000 prize scratch off card, all US players must play 5 days consecutively. Ditto for the US $10,000 scratch card for ten-day logins by users.
How To Redeem Winnings
When you gathered enough cash and/or tokens to redeem for your winnings, tap the four-leaf clover at the top of your screen and select “Redeem Cash.”
The minimum cash out is $2.00 and 30,000 tokens get you a $5 Amazon gift card.
Tokens are much more common to win. You can also use tokens to buy raffle entries to win prizes by exploring the top right corner of the Lucktastic app.
FYI – for users experiencing trouble redeeming cash, Lucktastic holds a limit of gift cards that may run low during rush hour or the holiday season as stated on their website.
Odds of Winning
Rare winning an actual cash scratch card. Some users have been playing for years without winning a cash scratch card. Tokens are common and almost always guarantee however.
Lucktastic representatives claimed to have given away $3 million to 220,000 individual winners since they started in 2014. The largest cash prize scratch card can win anyone $10,000 instantly.
It is important to understand odds. It is highly unlikely to win high ranking cash prizes. However, every scratch card gives a consolation prize of 4 tokens up to 100 tokens as a bonus.
Unfortunately, we can’t all be Larry, the guy who won $1MM jackpot in Lucktastic last year.
Gift card redemption is on a first come first serve, limited supply. Lucktastic warned during holidays gift cards often run out so redemption may not be instant.
There are a lot of ads – there’s always video ads before
This is an arena where your mileage may vary depending on your phone capability and connection.
We noted a longer wait times for in-app ads and scratch cards to load. On my personal device, I noticed a similar wait time as well as battery life drain. Our phones are both models released in 2016 so older phones may experience similar issues than newer phones.
Because Lucktastic is an ad-based app, the third-party partnerships are not a reflection of Lucktastic and do not have to follow all the rules.
Don’t fall for fake notifications or give any third-party ad payment and personal information.
Our Experiment Results
Lucktastic is definitely a “your mileage may vary” game since it is based completely on individual luck.
I had both me and my partner play for an entire week using only scratch cards made available for free (without download or clicking ads.)
After playing for 1 week, I have gathered a total of 23,000 tokens by doing most available scratch cards allowed per day. My partner gathered 16,000 tokens but earned $1.75 in cash.
Bonus to the tokens, you can win cash in Lucktastic but it is rare. I earned $1.25 in cash. The minimum cash withdrawal is $2.00. Tokens are separate from cash winnings.
The average token amount between us is 20,000 which is the typical amount a regular Lucktastic user can expect in the first week.
My partner and I did not take in-app surveys or download recommended games for extra tokens. We mostly only played free scratch cards. *I did download an advertised app – a virtual coloring book app) because I wanted to color :)*
At our current rate, Lucktastic players can estimate redeeming a gift card valued between $5 to $10 within a month of consistent playing. (Rough estimates.)
We are a pet loving family so we are redeeming a $10 Petco gift card. It’s as good as cash in our household!
For the casual fun and excitement of playing Lucktastic, we discovered it can help offset the cost of our dog!
Now that’s merry for money!
For a casual player who enjoys pure luck based fun, why not play?
Is it the best way to make money with your time? Nope.
You may have to check back for gift cards if they are out of stock. The app does have many ads (for almost every scratch card) compare to other similar games, but Lucktastic also has a higher coin value to payout amount which makes winning money quicker.
Lucktastic is completely free and you can kill the time while adding some pure excitement for those that enjoy scratch card games (l know I am.) You never know your luck and there is nothing to
It’s a fun way to keep idle hands busy multi-tasking and win some money rewards playing virtual scratchcards.
