Chris launched his website Free Postcode Lottery in April 2011, on April Fools’ Day to be precise. I caught up with Chris to find out more about Free Postcode Lottery (hereon referred to as FPL), how it began and what the future holds.
If you look at the top of the homepage it gives an up to date figure of how much has been given away so far. I ran a charity promotion where I gave away to charities suggested by users but it took up a lot of time and manpower.
There’s currently a double-up option where winners can choose to donate their money to charity and I double the amount. You stand to win ?100 on the FPL daily jackpot, or potentially much more if it rolls over.. Because the novelty of the site has worn off for me, I’m always surprised by how impressed some people are when I tell them about it. Do you have many people getting in touch to say they missed their prize and can they get it anyway? The top bar of the website shows the prize pot (this one has rolled over), the winning postcode and your personal bonus, which goes up by a penny each day you visit.
You get lots of comments and dedicated fans who come back time and time again to comment on your site.
It has turned into a real community which I didn’t anticipate, and the site was even awarded 2014 Website of the Year in the Community category.

Just to make us all feel better, did you have any failed business attempts before FPL happened?
How did you learn to code, and could you give advice to adults who want to get into it from scratch? The new Eircode system launches in Ireland this summer and I want to launch FPL there at the same time. Chris H is a modern day Robin Hood without stealing from the rich (some might say that’s a shame). I’m working on a re-design and will hopefully be able to introduce a new draw to benefit charities. Then again, sometimes people can be very internet savvy and cautious but then they can also get scammed by less ethical websites via advertising.
I have to police a lot of comments but the cool thing is that, when someone asks a question publicly, someone else has already got in and answered before me. Will the Eircode create any difficulties or should it all just operate in exactly the same way? However, if it does appear, you’ll have to split the jackpot with the other winners if they claim their share within the 24 hours. All you do is supply your email address and postcode, then check back on the website every day to see if your postcode has won the daily jackpot.
I’m now giving away over ?60,000 a year, not including the smaller prizes like the Stackpot.

In the early days of FPL it was so tough to drum up interest and get enough people to sign up, so I know what it’s like and I wish them the best. I won’t go into detail but I do have systems in place to monitor against things like that. The great thing is that everything is available on the internet and you don’t have to pay for it. You can download this as nice desktop wallpaper by right click and save as into your computer.
Don't miss to check all from this kind of lovely popular desktop background by viewing the similar high definition wallpapers design below.
If you do something that people truly appreciate then they’ll want to tell other people about it. Not everyone understands that FPL just works the way free newspapers and TV stations do: thanks to advertising. I did wonder if it annoys him when people use his idea and make something of their own with it. It’s so cool to read how Chris thinks it flattering, and he remembers how hard work it is in the beginning.
