Hello there again my fellow sea changers. I hope you are well. Today we continue our journey into the world of gaming apps with a look at an extremely popular one called Mistplay. This app provides access to those who not only wish to play games on their smartphones, but make a little cash from it as well. Can you make money with Mistplay? I am sure you can. Let's however see if it is worth it… .
As with most of these apps, you will make some money with time and patience. They are legitimate operations and do pay out you have played long enough to warrant it. My concern as always however is the time it takes to make the cash and whether you would be better off spending this time elsewhere. So, for this review, I will:
- Download the app
- Play a few games and complete any relevant tasks
- Time it all
- See how much $$ I can earn for the time spent…
What is Mistplay
Mistplay is a “get paid to” app that pays you to download and play online games via a smartphone or tablet. The app itself provides links to hundreds of games which are downloaded independently from the relevant app store. Points are then earned based on:
- The games chosen and how long they are played.
- Playing games to reach certain levels or other achievements.
- Making in game app purchases.
- Watching in game advertising.
There does not appear to be any limit on earnings dependent upon how long you wish to play.
How do you earn?: By playing online games on a smartphone
How much can you earn?: There is no limit dependent upon how long you wish to play.
How do you get paid?: Prepaid credit cards or gift cards from well-known vendors and websites.
How much you need to make before cashing out: 1800 units will earn you a $5 prepaid Visa card or gift card.
Platform: iOS, Android.
Cost to Download: Free – games are downloaded separately with many containing ‘in app’ purchases.
Login with: FaceBook, Google
Then I found a way to make money online with my very own website.
I used the time I wasted trying to make money with these games and built two websites that make real cash!!
Joining for FREE was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
So, I downloaded the app and then accessed two games via their links within the Googel App Store (I use an android device). These games were:
- Points are earned based on the amount of time played and levels reached.
- Ads popped up every couple of hands.
- I did not run out of chips although if I had, more could be purchased in game.
Outcome: 15 minutes played – level 3 reached (the minimum required) – 63 points earned
Online adventure game
- Points are earned via building villages and pillaging others – the bigger the village and the more pillaging you do, the more points you earn.
- A slot machine type screen is used to earn coins to build a village – if not enough are won, further coins can be purchased in game to advance your village.
- Ads are played every now and then within the game.
- Further buildings and fighting skills can be purchased in game.
Outcome: 15 minutes played – level 2 buildings completed (I ran out of spins which reset overnight) – 1 village pillaged (burnt it down real nice!!) – 20 points earned
To be honest, the games were quite fun and I could easily have got lost in playing them if not for my time frames on getting this post written. Both games required a Google account at access and I did not make any in game purchases.
What were my outcomes?
Let's be short and sweet here:
Total time spent ‘working' on my games: 30 minutes
Total points earned: 82.
Note: Points can also be earned via:
- Join – 200 points
- Refer a friend – 100 points for every friend you invite to the app
- Share on social media – 5 points per platform
- Subscribe to the newsletter – 15 points
How can I get paid?
With Mistplay, there are two payment options as per below:
- Giftcards: Amazon, iTunes and other localised cards (department stores etc.) – redeemable amounts range from 300 to 360 points per dollar. These conversions change depending on the total amount that you are claiming starting with a minimum amount of $5 for 1800 points.
- Cash: Redeemable via prepaid Visa and MasterCard – $1 = 300 – 360 points – minimum amount of $5 for 1800 points
Can you make money with Mistplay?
Well yes, I earned 82 points for 30 minute's work so let's assume that if I kept playing in the same fashion as above that it would take me roughly 2 and a half hours of play to make my first $5. Maybe I could refer some friends, share on social media and reach some higher levels within my games to bring it all down to around 2 hours to hit my first 1800 point target as well.
So, in terms of making ‘good' money then at roughly $2.50 an hour (starting), I would have to say that the question for you is whether you think that is a worthwhile return for your time. As with many of these types of apps I think if you were willing to put a lot of time into the game playing side of things then you may be able to make some from it…
Do I recommend it?
Look, I have to say that it looks to me that things in this area of online money making capers are as I have always found them to be – that you will need to put in some decent hours to get a not-so-decent return on your time. Although you are playing games so it could be a good extra earner whilst you sit on the bus on the way to work for example. That said, if you can find games that earn $10 -$15 an hour from home without transport and uniform costs, then it could be worth it for some.
It is definitely not a scam and I think if you wanted to do it full time then you could almost make some good money from it. I would personally however suggest that you look into some other ways to earn an income online that can make you far more money for the same amount of work.
And there it is – my honest opinion on whether you can make money with Mistplay. I hope it has been helpful and as usual, please do not hesitate to comment below if you have any questions, need some advice or have any experiences to share.
