Unless you’re a professional athlete, the best way to make money and have fun at the same time is to check out these game apps to win real money.

But rather than vegging out on Candy Crush or scrolling through your Instagram feed for the billionth time today, why not actually put your screen time to profitable use with the game apps below?

Can you really make money playing game apps?

The answer is yes, and the reason is that apps make their creators a ton of money.

In fact, even little-known game apps can make their creators over $100,000 a day just in advertising revenue alone!

So as an incentive to get more people to use their app, many game app creators actually let their users win real money so they keep playing and winning more money!

Download all three of these free apps today to maximize your odds of winning cash for playing games!

1. This free app pays you to play mobile games.

Get Rewarded for Playing Games
Mistplay is a free new app that rewards you for downloading games from the App Store or Google Play Store through its own interface.

As you level up in the mobile games, you earn more points that you can redeem for gift cards at Amazon, VISA, PlayStation, Xbox, Apple, Starbucks, and more.

2. Play this free slots app and win up to $1,000,000.

Long Game is a free app that basically gamifies and rewards you for your savings.

Here’s how Long Game works:

(1) You deposit money into your Long Game account and earn interest on it. Note that this money belongs to you, just like it does in your bank account.Long Game does not collect any fees out of the money you put in, and you can withdraw it at any time.

(2) Long Game gives you coins depending on how much you have saved in your Long Game account.

(3) You use these coins to play slot games with prizes ranging from $100 to $1,000,000!

So while you do have to put money into the app to play, this money belongs to you, not the house!

How does Long Game make money to pay their employees as well as your winnings?

Easy. Long Game earns interest on the money you deposit, and it’s out of this interest that it pays out the winnings.

3. This free app gives you virtual scratchers.

If you’ve ever been disappointed by scratchers you’ve purchased at the liquor store, I have news for you.

You can now get virtual scratch-off tickets with a new free app and a chance to win real money.

It’s completely free to play, and every day you will see new scratchers opportunities.

3 Other Best Money-Making Apps for iPhone and Android

Although the apps below don’t necessarily have a “game” component, they are still great ways to make money from your phone!

We’ve personally made over $3,000 with the apps below!

1. Use this app to get paid to walk into stores.

Have you heard of the new app Shopkick?

It literally pays you to walk into stores!  You don’t even have to buy anything — you will get paid simply for entering stores!

Of course, you will earn more points for actually making a purchase, but even if you’re just window shopping, you can still earn points.

2. Get paid to have this app on your phone.

There’s an app that will pay you just for having it on your phone.

You heard me right. They will pay you $50 per year per device just for having your app on there!

Talk about the ultimate passive income opportunity!

3. Get cash back on stuff you buy anyway.

One way to create passive income with no money is to get paid for doing things you do anyway, like going shopping.

There’s a little-known app called Ibotta that literally gives you cash back on things you buy anyway, just for taking pictures of your shopping receipts!

To date, I have made $1,357.09 from this little app.

And yes, they pay you cash through Paypal!

Do you know anyone who has played these games and actually are allowed to get to the payout minimum? The closer you get, the less you get until you stop getting anything and they never pay out. Its all a scam. Just because they make money on advertising and waste hundreds of your hours watching the same stupid ad over and over doesn’t mean they are going to give you any of it. I’ve played many and have never been allowed to reach the payout, so I’ve never been paid a dime. They need to be shut down.

Can not get mistplay to play on my Amazon fire tablet, that’s very unfortunate, I would like to no of an app that
I can download to be able to make real money, rather it’s cash or gift cards, while playing games on
my fire tablet, 7 I believe it is, brand new, should be a way to have more than just mistplay for that. I can download
It off the internet but during setting up, it tells me to unlock the app so it can track my levels of winnings, that’s
Where it stops, so anyone have any advice on what to do or another app I could try. It’s funny the last time I did
The mistplay on my other phone and won 25 gift card from Amazon so this tablet pretty much is with Amazon but
can’t get mistplay to do it on here. Greatly appreciate any advice or feedback. Thank you.
