So near yet so far i need 27/3/66
Hi, i have now completed the Android App. Thanks to all those who gave me feedback. Its currently available via the below link until Hazel puts a permanent link up.
In the mean time i’ll try to get out an iPhone one also if users are happy with this one.
Yay! It’s mine. Thank you, (:
Congrats, I’ve paid out your prize 🙂
SOOO CLOSE.. except mines 27/05/92 😩
I did not realise that it cost you money to send all of the emails out. I have your sites on bookmark so I no longer need the reminder email. I hope this saves you some money x
Thank you Lynda xx
Yay, thank you for my win yesterday, a great Easter treat 🙂
You’re welcome, well done 🙂
Not mine today, keep trying
I’ve installed the app and set a notification on my android, I’ll see how it goes…
Thanks. If you could let me know if the app itself is ok to use. Hopefully the reminder is working now. If not please let me know.
Thanks. I agree the ads are excessive. Its supposed to be one ad per session. I’ll fix it foe the update.
Regarding the annoying video ads, I forgot to switch them to no video/sound. I’ll do that today.
Don’t be put off for a month -:) I’ll be updating the app tomorrow. So if you could try it again and this also test the updating of the app.
Thanks for your feedback, its appreciated.
No probs. I usually check around midday so I’ll wait until Monday to check via the app. We all need a lie in on Sundays so I wouldn’t expect the changes to have been made by midday! Thanks for your swift reply.
You’re not wrong, I had my Sunday easter lie in 🙂 I updated the adverts, they should only be images, plus only one per session, so when it asks to update please do. Hope its better.
Hi Ravi, the app works perfectly! The reminder worked, and there were only 2 ads – one immediately on opening the app and one when I went to comps page. Both were silent though and easy click out of. You’ve done a great job, I’m sure Hazel will thrilled!
Thanks! Should only be one advert per session though. So will fix it. Also, as Jan as suggested, the icon in the notification isn’t really visible as its so small, so will change it to just the penguin.
Hopefully it will be OK for Hazel add a link to it by the end of the week.
Thanks for all your feedback, its much appreciated!
Hi Ravi, just to let you know that I’m still getting 2 ads (in the same places as yesterday). It doesn’t really bother me, but it may bother others.
One thing though, the X to close the ads is very close to the reminder icon so is awkward to access. Is it possible to move the icon, maybe to the bottom right so that the page still looks symmetrical?
Yeo. Will move it. Have to put it bottom left or under the email icon though, as the web page has a icon at the bottom right sometime to go to the top of the page.
No the reminder works without logging in. You shouldn’t have to log in again once logged in. This would only happen if you clear the app data via your phone setting.
I hope its not caused by the updating the app. I’ll look into it.
To be honest, if the web page is faster your better off using that, its just on some phone the browser in the app is quicker than the phone one, so it depends on whats easier/faster for you.
Thanks for the feedback.
Hi everyone, I’m just adding a comment so everyone knows Ravi’s comment is genuine. It would really help FBL out if anyone is able to do this. Thanks 🙂
Only a few days out!
Nine years out exactly 🙁
2 years off exactly!! 1992 🙁
I’ve won!!! Thank you
please delete me from the email reminder.
You’re not subscribed as far as I can tell?
just get’s better and better this website – well done 🙂
You can delete me from the email reminder too! x
I have a suggestion for the website…get rid of the thumbs down sign…Luckyphone only have the thank you or reply and there are very rarely any negative comments and this will be more beneficial for anyone suffering from mental health issues, IMO and keep it fun x
I check everyday too and even if I do forget to check, wen I open browser its there lol so you can take me off the Email to save money too 🙂
You’re a star Amanda, thank you 🙂
Hi, I don’t need the reminder either. I’m not always able to check, but I do check when I’m able to.
Thanks Ben 🙂
Hi there. First of all thanks for a great site and opportunity. I just wanted to check if the daily email reminders have stopped as I have not received any since Friday? I used Gmail and also check spam daily and they have not gone in there. Thank you.
Hi Wendy, thanks for the nice feedback. There was a notice in the last few weeks’ emails asking people to confirm they want to continue receiving reminders, as it costs a fortune to send them out and more than half were being ignored. It sounds like you still want them so I’ll opt you back in manually. Thanks.
hi can you take me off it to please i check when i can ive got it saved as bookmark x
Thanks Sophie x
I didn’t realise that it cost you money to send the emails. I have my own system for remembering to check so I no longer need the reminder email. I hope this saves you some money x
Aww bless you liverpoolgirl, that’s really thoughtful of you – I have to buy them sort of in bulk, so that’s why I needed to cut down. They’re worth the cost if it helps people to check the site, but around 2,500 emails were being ignored! 😮 xx
I don’t remember the email either and i don’t need the reminder either as i check everyday anyway ☺ x
Thanks vey much. I do not remember reading that in an email but thanks for adding me back in, much appreciated.
how do i get in the survey draw?
As long as you have a birthdate in your profile you’re automatically entered every day 🙂
Hi, would it be possible to reintroduce the link to the survey date, and the link from the survey draw to the comps? Thank you x
Hi liverpoolgirl, I had other feedback that the pages were too ‘busy’ and it was hard to see the draw results because of the other links around it. Does the menu not show up for you? The blue menu should have direct links to the draws and comps in one click. Please let me know x
You’re automatically entered into it, you just need to click onto the link and check it the same way as you check the the Birthdate draw x
Yes, the menu does show, but it was so much easier having the link directly below. Just my preference. x
I found having the link easier too. I find myself clicking the wrong things in the menu x
Ok, I’ve put them back, thanks for the feedback guys x
Thank you so much x
my year but not my day and month
Thank you so much for my win last Thursday – very surprised! Speedy payment too! 🙂
You’re welcome Emily 🙂
Just back from holiday where the wifi was provided by TalkTalk who blocked access to freebirthdaylottery, classifying it as GAMBLING!! So I had to check the site (when I could get a signal) on my mobile phone. That was so slow and difficult to do that I’m relieved to be back home using my own BT wifi again. I hope someone can put TalkTalk straight that FBL is NOT gambling, just a lovely fun website.
I check every day no problem and I am with Talk Talk. Must be down to your own settings.
That’s a good point Speedmaster, TalkTalk include a parental control thing as part of their package don’t they – I think you either have to disable it or add certain sites to a whitelist.
Hi, yes – it was the parental control but, as it was a holiday cottage, I wasn’t the account holder so couldn’t change the settings.
Hi Aileen, sorry to hear you had such trouble accessing the site while you were away! Hope you had a lovely holiday. Don’t get me started on TalkTalk, lol, used to be a customer and all I will say is never again!! Good to have you back properly! 🙂
Why was my post took down? Others have posted their links. Maybe not all in one go but I thought by doing it in one post, it would be better than loads ofor different posts…..surely ?!!!
twice that date has come out fairly recent and 1 day out for mines 16th, boohoo
new to the site so excuse me if this has been covered. site looks great by the way. i looked at the previous winners page and it seems as though no one claims. is that because everyone is automatically entered but everyone doesn’t check the site? if so then couldn’t you change it so that you have to click to play every day and then choose the winners from the people that have actually entered?
Hi Blake, glad you like the site. There are some lotteries where you click to play, but changing my site to that would be a complete overhaul of the whole format, although I do see where you’re coming from. If you read my comment further down, you can see how I have plans in relation to the lack of claims.
It’s a shame so many are not claiming, only 5 claims on each draw this year. I think it’s about time the dormant players were cleared out to give the real players a chance. Even Free Postcode Lottery closes your account if you’ve not signed in often enough.
Maybe time for you to implement something like this Hazel, just an idea.
A good idea Amanda, why register and then don’t check ? A couple of minutes a day is all it takes !!
Three days out! ;-(
March tomorrow already…soon be Christmas at this rate haha
Lol I know, it’s flying by isn’t it!
What time are the draws? They have usually changed by now same as the logo challenge. There is nothing on the FAQ page.
Susan, I’m sorry, they are supposed to be at 11am but the auto-update failed and I got held up. I’ve fixed this now.
Didn’t mean to rush you, I thought it was just my laptop playing tricks on me! Thanks.
No worries at all, thanks Susan 🙂
Oooo same day month 11 yrs out oooooo so close
6 days after my birthdate. It’s getting closer! x
I just joined up but I put the wrong year for my birthday. What should I do
Thanks for signing up. You can change your birthdate in your profile.
I won £100 on here a few weeks ago! 🙂
Ahh, not me this time, But i checked out Pouch and its really cool. http://www.joinpouch.com
12 years after me 😞
Wrong month only!
Ooh so close – just 30 days out!
Wow ! well done !
I’m 13th sept and curiosity got to me to see how many others share the date. “kaisa” is 1 year old… Against the rules!!! I hope it’s a genuine mistake and not someone who’s entered their son/daughter 😮
Hi Jan, Kaisa’s birthdate is the same date as they registered for the site which is the default setting. The draw only takes into account valid birthdates i.e. anyone over the age of 16, so it won’t unfairly affect the rest of the players.
Thanks for clarifying 😊
I check and I don’t think my birthday is in the draw. How do I confirm it to get it in the draw?
Your birthday is down as 09/12/1998 as confirmed here.
1 day and 1 year out, lol. Good luck all xx
oh no 1 day out, im 16th
Two years out!!! Exact date, wrong year!
Lol me too 66 not 68 shucks!
22 days before my youngest sister was born, yesterday my 2 brothers.. only 1 more sister to go lol
Just 3 weeks out. This is the first time I have seen 1943 as aw inning birthday!
Unlucky Sara! It’s only the second time 1943’s been drawn since the site launched. There have been 15 winners born in the 1940s so far though 🙂
for anyone not already joined 😊 gl http://doblotto.com/r/450e92
I tend to stay away from sites that have not been endorsed by the site owner unless I discover them myself, then I don’t post my links without getting permission. Why not show a little courtesy and ask Hazel if you can post your link here? She works very hard at this.
Nearly there only out by 3 – 2 – 1 , buy I’ll keep on checking, good luck everybody.
I don’t care how much the pot is on these FREE sites, I’ll still keep checking daily, it’s fun to see if I’ve won or not and entering the comps is what add to the fun, so I’ve always checked daily since joining and I’ll still be here when I’m 70 !! 😂😂😀
