Play for Fun, Not Fortune!
You’ll make pitiful sums at best, and it may take a long time to get paid, if at all. Play games to earn money. Yes, there are mobile apps that make such claims.
How are these apps able to pay you to play games? In many cases, you’re earning money for them by watching advertisements and filling out surveys in between games. Your earnings will most likely be a few cents per day, and payouts are usually made once you reach a certain amount, such as $5. According to app reviews, even this can take a long time.
Here’s what you need to know before you start downloading.
What are the gaming apps that pay real money?
We looked into some of the most popular apps in the “pay me to play games for free” category. The end result was a mixed bag: some pleased players and, on occasion, an equal number of complaints.
We’re not naming the apps because we don’t want to imply an endorsement.
Watching videos (commercials) and completing surveys were mentioned almost as much as playing games in the description of one of the more popular pay-for-play apps. In other words, don’t expect to play for long periods of time.
While playing various games such as slots, cards, and battles, some apps allow you to earn “units” that can be redeemed for gift cards. There may be a chat function that allows you to socialise with other players. A live game show app that gives you 10 seconds to answer a trivia question is also available. Another game offered by these app developers is virtually scratching off cards to match symbols.
Even if some players have only won small sums or have never won, many remain fans.
One app reviewer says she’s been playing it since 2008 and has never won, but she keeps playing “in the hopes that one day it will come to me as a blessing.” “And good luck to everyone,” she says, crossing her fingers.
When it comes to playing game apps for money, that is the correct attitude.

Play for fun, be careful from scammers!
Game apps that pay money may appear to be too good to be true. And they are at times. Some unscrupulous providers may delay payouts by preventing you from meeting your payout target. Some high-profile game apps have abruptly shut down, leaving users wondering what happened to their prizes.
Complaints about these pay-to-play apps frequently mention delayed or nonexistent payouts, as well as the fact that you have to play for so many hours for so little money. Before you download any new apps, do your research and read reviews.
Protect yourself by not expecting prizes and instead being pleasantly surprised when you do receive one, and by not providing personal information beyond what the apps require to monitor your playing activity. Also, look for payments sent via email, such as gift cards or PayPal, to protect your financial information.
Perhaps most importantly, ensure that monetary payouts are legal in your jurisdiction. Read the fine print of the app and look up your state’s laws online.
