TOP Game Apps that Pay You Real Money in 2021

game apps Both Google Play and the App Store are jam-packed with mobile apps that offer cash rewards for playing games.

It’s a very profitable business for app developers as the possibility of earning money while having fun attracts millions of ad viewers all over the world.

Here at My Room is My Office, I have reviewed hundreds of such mobile applications with the mission to warn users about their safety and legitimacy.

In the past few years, I came across an incredible number of apps that don’t live up to people’s expectations, causing extreme anger and frustration. The reason is that most of them are designed with only the developer’s profits in mind.

In this post, you will find a complete list of the most popular game apps separated into 3 categories:

  1. Get paid per minute of gameplay.
  2. Get paid to install games and hit goals.
  3. Earn virtual tokens and cash in the game.

Not only that, but I will also reveal the likelihood of receiving payments based on my experience and hundreds of user reviews on Google Play.

So, we will classify each app into three categories:

  • Unlikely to pay: Unrealistic payouts, lots of complaints on Google Play/App Store.
  • Hit-and-miss: There are lots of positive and negative feedback regarding payment.
  • Likely to pay: Realistic payouts and most users seem to get paid with no issues.

IMPORTANT: It’s important to note that you can only earn credits for games that you have never played before. So, it’s useless installing and playing the same games through any of the reward apps on this list.

 

Get Paid Per Minute of Gameplay

 

Apps in this category will offer you a list of sponsored games you can install and play on your phone.

By granting access to your device’s usage tracking, the company will monitor your playtime and give you coins per minute.

Once you collect a specific number of coins, you can cash out via PayPal and/or gift cards depending on the app.

The rate of pay depends on your country, but most apps will pay you very little money.

It’s important to understand that there is a cap on the number of coins that you can earn per game. Besides, the more you play, the fewer coins you will earn until the rate of pay drop to zero.

At this point, there is no other choice but to install a new game from the list to keep earning.

The list starts with one of the most popular apps in this category:

 

mistplay reviewMistPlay 

  • Developer: MistPlay Inc.
  • Minimum Payout: $0.50
  • Payment methods: Amazon, Google Play, Visa Prepaid
  • Eligibility: US, Canada, the UK, Singapore, and some European countries
  • Likely to pay
  • Read the full Mistplay review here.

With over 10 million installs on Google Play, Misplay is one of the most popular loyalty app for gamers.

It will give you points called units you can redeem for Amazon Gift eCards, Google Play gift cards, and prepaid virtual Visa.

Mistplay stands out from other similar apps simply because they do pay out. One user said he earns $10 every couple of weeks and always receives the payment within 48 hours.

 

PlaySpot 

playspot

  • Developer: SBA GmbH
  • Minimum Payout: $20
  • Payment methods: PayPal, Amazon, Google Play, and bank transfers
  • Eligibility: Worldwide
  • Likely to pay
  • Read the full PlaySpot review here

Playspot is another extremely popular app that pays you to discover and play cool games. However, different than Mistplay and other apps on this list, you will earn coins every time you pass a level. The app also provides other ways to earn coins such as app offers and videos.

By completing offers, you can collect a bulk amount of coins and cash out faster. However, the high minimum payout of $20 means that you will have to be patient.

From what I can see, most people redeem coins for PayPal and eGift cards, but not everyone has the same luck.

 

FunTap

funtap app review

  • Developer: FunTap.io
  • Minimum Payout: $20
  • Payment methods: PayPal, Amazon, Google Play, and bank transfers
  • Eligibility: Worldwide
  • Hit-and-miss
  • Read the full PlaySpot review here

FunTap is almost identical to PlaySpot, and as you can see, even their logos are similar. You will also earn coins by completing levels, and the minimum payout is $20.

The major difference between these two apps is that FunTap receives a lot more complaints. Some people claim the app contains malware, but if that was the case, I believe Google would have banned it a long time ago.

After reading lots of reviews, I can see that many users struggle to collect 20,000 coins. So, I would choose PlaySpot over FunTap.

 

Coin Pop

coin pop

Coin Pop is a reward app operated by the German company called JustDice, which owns the next couple of apps in this category. They all work similarly, which is why certain things you will read about the next apps may look repetitive. Nevertheless, I tried to include additional information, but everything you read about one app apply to the other as well.

Just like Mistplay, the more you play a specific game, the fewer coins you will earn. You can always check how long you must play the game in order to receive coins in “My Apps”.

Unfortunately, many users don’t have a positive experience with Coin Pop regarding payments. Many of them complai about missing payments. 

Keep in mind that if you try to use Coin Pop on another device, you may lose your coins.

 

Cash Alarm

Cash Alarm works exactly the same as Coin Pop. Simply choose a game from the list and play it for a while to earn coins. You can find many genres such as strategy, puzzle, casual, and action.

Many people manage to cash out multiple times and earn a decent amount of money. On the other hand, lots of users complain about unexpected errors and missing coins. It’s hit-and-miss!

 

AppstationAppStation

AppStation is another JustDice app that claims you can earn money for every second you play their sponsored games. Depending on your country, you will have a decent number of games to choose from, which is updated daily. 

As the app is operated by a German company, you will receive your payment in Euros. Some people have made over $100 just by playing games through AppStation, but it’s a lot more difficult to accumulate coins nowadays.

Just like Cash Alarm and Coin pop, AppStation users also complain about errors and missing credits.

 

FitPlay

fitplay review

FitPlay is one of the most popular apps from JustDice, but it’s no different. I discovered recently that the company is asking for your photo ID before you can request the payment.

Some people are not comfortable with this requirement because they fear for their safety and privacy. I think those are valid concerns.

I tried to visit the official FitPlay website and my antivirus blocked it saying that it was not secure. So, the company should address such important issues or more people will turn away.

 

app flameApp Flame

App Flame is another reward app that may or may not pay you depending 100% on luck. Although the app description says “guaranteed Payouts”, the Terms and Conditions state the opposite.

You can make money with App Flame, but don’t expect it will be a hassle-free journey.

 

money rawrMoney RAWR

The only difference between Money RAWR and the other JustDice apps is the cute dragon logo. It provides the same opportunities and you may experience the same issues when trying to collect coins or cash out.

 

cash'em all app reviewCash’em All

Cash’em All is another app that can make it hard for you to redeem your coins for cash rewards. Lots of people have complained that they couldn’t cash out because of errors. Also, some of them report that the company doesn’t reply to their emails.

On the other hand, I have also seen many positive reviews from people who received the money.

 

The Lucky Miner

the lucky miner

The Lucky Miner used to be called “Lucky Miner” and had been installed over 1 million times on Google Play.

A few months ago, the company decided to relaunch the app as “The Lucky Miner”, which is why there are only 100,000 installs now.

The Lucky Miner has the same mechanics, rewards, and issues are their counterparts. Install the app for free and collect gold coins per minute of gameplay.

It seems like a simple way to make money, right? Well, until you get an error and all your coins are gone! But maybe you are one of the lucky ones who may cash out.

 

Happy Swinehappy swine app review

I believe the only difference between Happy Swine from the other JustDice apps is that it has a lucky wheel. When you install the app for the first time, they will let you spin 10 times for free and earn coins. If you want to get more spins, you must watch a video first.

Another important thing to mention about the JustDice apps is that you can also earn coins by inviting friends. You just need to use the invite button through the app, select your friends, and send the message with your link.

You will get 250 coins per referral plus 25% of all your referral’s earnings.

 

Appsterappster

Appster is one of the least popular apps from JustDice, but the algorithm is the same. If you live in the UK and the US, you will probably find more games to install and earn a higher coin/minute rate.

When I reviewed Appster a while ago, I was shocked by the number of negative reviews on Google Play. You can give it a try, but there is always a risk of losing coins and getting errors when trying to cash out.

 

Get Paid to Install Games & Hit Goals

 

These are mobile versions of the traditional GPT (get-paid-to) sites since they offer multiple ways to earn tokens.

Unlike the previous category, you won’t get paid per minute of gameplay. Instead, the opportunity is presented to you as app offers. 

You must install the app and take specific actions on the game or achieve milestones. If it’s a mobile game, you may have to play it until you reach a certain level or score.

You can only be rewarded if you have never installed the game on your phone, and you meet all the requirements.

 

Rewarded Play rewarded play app review

With Reward Play, you can collect points for reaching levels, making in-app purchases, and playing for a specific period. Once you reach, 45,000 points, you can request vouchers for your favorite stores such as Amazon, Walmart, Target, and more.

Different than most game apps on this list, Rewards Play has an excellent reputation, as you can see in the review section of Google Play. Most users report receiving the eGift Card with no issues, which makes Reward Play a rare find.

 

AppNana

Appnana app review

  • Developer: Mapiz, Inc
  • Minimum Payout: $10/£10
  • Payment methods: Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, and other eGift Cards
  • Eligibility: Worldwide
  • Hit-and-miss
  • Read the full AppNana review here

AppNana was launched in 2017 and has paid over $10 million for its members. You will earn Nana Points for installing and playing games for a few minutes. Also, they may require you to reach a specific level or score before you get credited.

Appnana pays very little money, and you may have to wait for months to cash out. Another downside is that lots of people are missing points and payments. 

 

CashAppcashapp

CashApp is one of the most reliable GPT apps available on Google play.  You will earn credits after playing and reaching specific targets in the game.

The mobile games are mixed with other app offers inside any of the three Offer walls: Fantastic, Awesome, and Wow).

As of writing, I found the game Rise Of Kingdoms: Last Crusade offering 9,472 credits ($9,47), which is an excellent incentive.

With CashApp, you can also earn credits for taking surveys, completing different offers, watching videos, and inviting friends.

Once you accumulate 5,000 credits, you can cash out $5 through PayPal and spend anywhere you want.

 

Bituro

bituro

  • Developer: Bituro LLC
  • Minimum Payout: $1
  • Payment method: PayPal, Bitcoin, and eGift Cards
  • Eligibility: Worldwide
  • Hit-and-miss
  • Read the full Bituro review here

The Bituro app gives you points for completing game offers from third-party platforms that you can find in the “task” section. To get rewarded, you must download the app and follow all the instructions.

Bituro also has a “Play” section where you can win a prize if you guess right tomorrow’s Bitcoin price.

Once you collect 1000 points, you can cash out $1 via Bitcoin, and PayPal. Gift Cards are also available at higher payout thresholds.

Unfortunately, lots of people complain about missing points after completing offers and other tasks.

 

appKarma 

appKarma review

appKarma is a very popular reward app available for Android and iOS devices. There is a huge selection of app offers, which gives you points for installing and playing games until you reach a specific score our level.

What I like about appKarma is that they offer Karma Play Bonuses after you complete an app offer.

It also provides additional ways to boost your earnings through scratch cards and badges.

 

FeaturePointsfeaturePoints review

FeaturePoints has built a solid reputation until 2019 thanks to a large number of offers and generous referral commissions.

Today, you can still find lots of games inside one of the Offer Walls and earn points just like any other app in this category. Unfortunately, FeaturePoints seems to reward only a few lucky users, as I can see from reviews on Google Play.

 

Make Money Fast

make money fast app

Make Money Fast raises a red flag by its name, but it’s not one of those “get-rich-quick” schemes. It’s just another reward app similar to any other in this category.

With Make Money Fast, you can install game apps and earn points for playing and hitting goals. The cash incentives are usually very low, but some apps pay a few dollars’ worth of points.

What I dislike about this app is that users must provide their fingerprints to unlock the tasks. I don’t think biometric authentication is necessary for this type of app.

If that wasn’t bad enough, lots of people complain they don’t receive the payment.

 

PointsPrizespointsPrizes

PointsPrizes has partnered with many Offer Walls where you can complete game offers in return for points. You can redeem your points for a variety of gift cards, PayPal, and even Bitcoins.

There are many other opportunities to earn points such as surveys, offers, and videos.

What I don’t like about PrizePoints is the high payout threshold of $20 (3,000 points). Another downside is the large number of people complaining that they didn’t receive points after completing offers and surveys.

 

Earn Virtual Tokens or Cash in The Game

 

These mobile games will give you virtual cash or tokens that you can supposedly be traded in for cash rewards.

You have probably seen adverts suggesting you can earn thousands of dollars and even become rich by playing the game. Here is a screenshot of one of these misleading ads:

Coin+ advertising
Coin+ advertising

Most of the games in this third category have been advertised as great opportunities to earn easy money. Don’t fall for the hype because you may not get paid!

A common issue people usually face is that their cash balance stops growing before they reach the minimum payout threshold.

What a frustrating experience for millions of people who just wanted time playing a game full of ads!

Before installing any of these games, know that none of them guarantees winnings and that virtual cash doesn’t have currency value.

Check the apps below and if you still want to use any of them, focus on the ones that are more likely to pay.

 

Lucky Time

lucky time app review

This popular sweepstakes app provides unlimited scratchers and other free games such as Lucky Wheel, Lotto, and Lucky Knife.

It gives you virtual dollars and coins that can be redeemed for PayPal or Amazon gift cards.

Unlike most scratchcard apps, Lucky Time will transfer the money to your account once you reach $10. It’s one of the few apps of its kind that actually pay!

Lots of people have received the payment multiple times. However, many of them report errors after the third or fourth attempt. Nothing is perfect!

 

Winkel Play Daily app reviewWinkel Play Daily 

Winkel Play Daily is one of the few apps that actually pay for playing free scratch cards. It also allows you to play the lottery and take part in sweepstakes for a chance to win cash and coins.

There are two payout options. You can either withdraw the money to PayPal once your cash balance reaches $10, or you can exchange 6,600,000 coins for a $5 Reward link voucher.

The problem with Winkel Play Daily is that it doesn’t seem to reward everyone. Some users complain about getting stuck before they reach $10, which means they cannot request the payment.

 

Givvy 

givvy app review

  • Developer: Givvy Ltd
  • Minimum Payout: $0.10 (Revolut), $0.29 (PayPal)
  • Payment methods: PayPal and Revolut
  • Eligibility: Worldwide
  • Likely to Pay
  • Read the full Givvy review here

Givvy is a legit reward app developed by a company based in Bulgaria. It works a bit differently than other apps in this list. You can play the Tic-Tac-Toe with other members and get points if you are the winner. There is also the memory game, the calendar game, and the calculator.

You can also win points for completing surveys and inviting friends. Each survey pays only 300 points, which is a measly $0.02.

The main downside of Givvy is that these activities pay very little money. To give you an idea, lots of members report getting $0.29 after 1 month or so! Well, at least it pays!

 

bitcoin blastBitcoin Blast

Bitcoin Blast is one of the few games that pay everyone. If you like the popular Candy Crush, why not earn BTC while playing a similar game?

All you have to do is match at least 3 coins of the same color. As you blast them away, you will get bling points that can be exchanged for Bitcoin.

Unfortunately, you cannot continue the game after you reach 1000 points in one day. That’s equivalent to just $0.01!

The good news is that you can withdraw this small amount instantly to your Coinbase account.

 

Crypto Connect 3 crypto connect 3 app review

  • Developer: Phoneum
  • Minimum Payout: Redeem everything you earn after you complete 100 levels
  • Payment methods: PHT cryptocurrency
  • Eligibility: Worldwide
  • Likely to Pay
  • Read the full Crypto Connect 3 review

Crypto Connect 3 is a legit game that transfer PHT to your Phoneum wallet once you complete all 100 levels. The amount of money you will earn depends on the current price of PHT and your overall performance.

The downside of Crypto Connect 3 is that there are only 100 levels. If you want to earn more PHT, you need to restart from level 1 by purchasing the premium membership for $5.

 

super plinko app reviewSuper Plinko

Super Plinko is an addictive Android game where you have to drop the balls and make them fall into the slots to earn cash or tokens. Green Balls will give you virtual cash, whereas the yellow ones will give you tokens.

You can withdraw the money via PayPal once you reach $100 or 2 million tokens. The problem is that green balls become scarce and even drop in value from $0.01 to $0.001. So, they make it nearly impossible to cash out.

 

merge emoji app reviewMerge Emoji

Merge Emoji is one of those “Early Access” games that entices players with the opportunity to win hundreds of dollars via PayPal.

The developer makes players believe they can withdraw all the money they collect within the first 3 days. It also offers the opportunity to win an iPhone when people collect all 100 puzzles. Sadly, people will just waste a lot of time watching ads with no compensation.

 

big time cash reviewBig Time Cash

Big Time Cash is a mobile application that allows you to play 19 games and earn tickets that can be entered into prize draws. Each prize is worth $2,000 – $3,000 .

As only one lucky user will be selected from millions of tickets, earning the prize is probably more difficult than winning the Powerball. That’s why lots of users prefer to save their tickets on the virtual bank and cash out $10 via PayPal.

WINR Games does pay, but it takes a very long time to cash out.

 

Quizdomquizdom

The Quizdom app is one of the most popular trivia games on Google Play. You will answer trivia questions divided into 16 different categories and earn virtual currency when you guess the question.

Millions of people have been playing Quizdom in hopes to reach $10 and cash out via PayPal. Unfortunately, this is one of those games that will pay you less and less until you get stuck and cannot cash out. Lots of users have been stuck at $9 for 6+ months!

 

Lucky Scratch  

Lucky Scratch is a sweepstakes app where players get free unlimited scratchers. If you match 3 symbols you will win either virtual cash or coins.

They also have other in-app games such as the lucky wheel, lucky knife, lucky prize, and lotto.

Once you accumulate enough cash or coins, you should be able to cash out via PayPal and gift cards. However, lots of people are complaining that they cannot cash out!

From what I can see on Google Play, Lucky Now used to pay a few users when it was operated by Fort Mason Games, Inc. Unfortunately, it’s gone downhill under new management!

 

Puppy Town

With over 10 Million installs under the belt, Puppy Town is the most popular merging game on Google Play.

Simply Combine identical puppies at the same level to form another breed one level above and earn cash rewards.

Then, can supposedly withdraw money to PayPal once you reach $100. The app also claims that you can earn an iPhone 11 if you collect enough puzzle pieces.

Despite the excellent ratings, no one seems to collect enough cash or puzzle pieces to collect the prizes. Lots of people are saying they completed all the 50 levels and got stuck between $89 and $98.

 

Little Jumping Bird

little jumping bird app review

Little Jumping Bird is one of the most challenging and addictive games on Google Play. In this modified version of FlappyBird, you will escape obstacles and accumulate over $10,000 during the entire journey.

The developer claims that payment is guaranteed after you complete level 20.

Well, many people expect to meet this requirement with practice and perseverance. The problem is that the designer made it almost impossible to finish the last level without purchasing lives.

Some players spent their hard-earned money and finished level 20. However, the company accused them of hacking the game, and rejected their payment requests.

I am not saying the same will happen to you, but I didn’t find anyone who received the prize. It’s just a pipe dream, so don’t waste your money! 

 

Lucky plinko app reviewLucky Plinko

Lucky Plinko is another coin dropping game where players only need to tap their phone screens to collect virtual cash.

The coins collide with the obstacles and fall into narrow compartments at the bottom. When you light all the 9 bulbs, the slot machine is activated and you have the change to get more rewards.

They advertise the game as an opportunity to win lots of money. However, it stops giving cash coins when you achieve around $95, making it impossible to cash out.

Some people have been playing Lucky Plinko for months without earning a single cent.

So, forget about making money with this game!

 

Panda Cube Smash app reviewPanda Cube Smash

Panda Cube Smash is an addictive match puzzle game where you destroy blocks by tapping 2 or more blocks of the same color.

Reach the target and complete the level before running out of moves.

Your cash balance will grow fast in the beginning, but when you least expect, you are making 1 cent every 10 levels.

At some point, you will give up before you have the chance to cash out.

 

Lucky Hooplucky hoop app review

  • Company: Nigel Fowler
  • Minimum Payout: £120
  • Payment method: PayPal, Coinbase, and more
  • Eligibility: Worldwide
  • Unlikely to pay
  • Read full Lucky Hoop review

Lucky Hoop combines basketball game, plinko and slot machine under the same roof. It’s very addictive!

Whenever you make a basket, small balls will fall through the pegboard and down into the slots. The green balls award virtual dollars that accumulate in your account.

You can only cash cash out once you reach £120 or 3 million tokens. However, the app is programmed to give you progressively smaller amount of cash, making it nearly impossible to cash out.
