Off the Beaten Path
Join me on an adventure. Where will we go today?
I like to play games on my phone, but I sometimes get sucked into hours of play, partially thanks to my ADD and addictive personality. Rewarded Play has a high rating of 4.2 stars out of 5 on the Google Play Store. It is only available on Android phones. You can earn points in different ways. Taking surveys means you will be inundated with emails selling products and services tailor-made to your survey answers. This is my own experience. After about a week of surveys, I declined and focused on playing the daily 4 minutes per game to earn minor points.
As you can see, I have accumulated many points in a few weeks. I set a timer for 5 minutes when I open a game. Once the timer goes off, I finish the level and close the game. It keeps me from spending too much time on my phone, earns me the daily minimum, and provides a few entertaining moments in the midst of the chaos of my life. If you enjoy playing games, why not earn gift cards as well? Some of my favorite games are the solitaire card games. A cute fish greats me, wanting to be feed. The graphics are adorable. I also enjoy the merge games where three eggs become a dragon that works to get my coins for the game. But my favorites are the combined number games. There are several versions of this game. Right now, I am running 12 games that I try to do 5 minutes a day. Yes, I am only making about $5 an hour but it fills time while I am waiting for clothes to dry and checking my emails.
The downside is that you must change the games every 40 to 60 days to keep getting rewarded. Each game also has built-in ads which is a great time to check emails or get a drink of water. Some levels are difficult to beat without purchasing help. I have found if you just keep failing to pass a level, eventually, the level is easier or they give you help. Even if you do not pass that level, you still accumulate your 4 minutes and 200 to 250 points toward the gift cards. If I get a level I can't pass, my grandkids can sometimes do it.
