A new make money opportunity or a new way to lose your money?
Ok, so it’s not that new, but it’s new to Little Earner. Although I’ve heard of Paid to Play Games before, it wasn’t something I really took an interest in. However, I was doing some research for a new post and came across it again, so I dug a little deeper. It’s not going to make you a lot of money, but when you work at home you need some time to relax during the day. Why not relax by playing games online? Oh, and while you’re at it, why not get paid for it? It’s the best of both worlds: get paid when you’re working and get paid when you’re playin’!
It’s an attractive prospect isn’t it? But, as the unfortunate case with some things, there are prospects that just don’t live up to expectations, so here’s an honest review of how good paid to play games really are:
How does it work?
To secure new members, some gaming sites will offer gift cards or cash to members that sign up and play their games or try out brand new games. It’s not a huge amount, but it can be worth doing if you were planning having a little gaming break anyway.
Most of the time you’ll be testing out beta versions of the games and it can take a bit of getting used to. There will be bugs in the game, so you may get a little frustrated. Nevertheless, it’s just as easy to get addicted to a game you’re testing, so be warned, you might end up spending a little more time than planned testing out these games.
Aside from the aforementioned addictive gameplay problem, it’s difficult to find a reliable site that pays to play. I was directed to a supposedly good site, but it was shutdown before I could sign up – it turned out that although their pay to play offers were good, their games weren’t so good and they didn’t sell many!
Many of the sites are unreliable scams that end up charging you instead of paying you.Most of the sites I tried to find were not very useful at all in helping me to discover a way to make money online paying games.
However, there are agencies you can sign up to, if you search ‘Paid to play games’ in Google you’ll be given a wide selection of games to choose from.
So, should you investigate paid to play any further?
Although there are undoubtedly opportunities that exist for you to get paid to play online, there are many, many unreliable sites that will end up charging you money rather than making you money.
If you’re still interested, by all means research it and you could very well make a killing off it. But if you do so, make sure you research your chosen site carefully and don’t provide them with any credit card details (I’ve heard reports of these sites asking for credit card details and then charging you £30/$45 a month)
