Working – Independent faucets listed here are paying out. Faucetbox is dispensing fine (although will be closing soon). Xapo also dispensing fine. 
Problematic – Many faucets have been hit by the recent cull by Google, and many are shutting down or reducing payouts considerably. Faucetbox has announced it’s shutting down in early 2017.
Removed – AlienFaucet reset everyone’s account, so we stopped promoting them. Bitcoin-Cloud doesn’t payout. BitPTC doesn’t payout. Bitcoin2048 doesn’t payout.
Dead – CoinHD, BitcoinZebra, all Microwallet, Coinbox & BitChest based faucets

 

How bitcoin faucets work to give you free bitcoin
If you are bitcoin newcomer, one of the ways that you can get your first small amounts bitcoin for free is by participating in bitcoin faucets. These assume you have a bitcoin wallet address already. You can view ads, complete tasks or fill in captchas, gaining very small amounts of bitcoin as you go across faucets that build up their own balance for you, or pool their amounts into web wallets. Once you have passed the minimum payout threshold for the faucet you are using, you get a payout to your wallet either automatically, or with a manual withdrawal request.
