Is a 10p "free" scratchcard for 10p is free ?

I have recently done the Sky Lotto. Twice I have had two numbers, to win the free 10p scratchcard, but I was charged 10p on my SkyBet account for the privilege ! Obviously 10p is nothing for me, but multiply that up for all the clients, and it goes towards the promotion costing them a lot less.

Started playing the free lotto 7 weeks ago, every day for 4 weeks I would win 10-20p in free scratch cards and any winnings eg: 3, 5, 8, 10p I would take and not gamble any of my own money but the last 3 weeks I have not won a penny so obviously it is fixed.
