How to make CASH in your spare time playing games as a kid

How can kids money playing games?

Just to clarify, you don’t have to be a kid to earn money playing these games. Anyone can do it and I’d highly recommend it. It’s just that kids can struggle so much to earn any kind of money that they can call their own, so this is absolutely ideal for them.

In this post I’m going to talk about two apps. They are Appstation and Cash Alarm.

These apps are perfect if you want to make money playing games!

These are two separate apps, but I’m going to hazard a guess that they are made by the same company because they are almost identical. The main difference between the two is the games that they offer.

How do I download the apps?

First, let’s talk about how they work. You download the app (either or both) and register with them. During the set-up process they will take you to your settings to allow the apps to monitor your phone usage. They have to do this so that they can monitor how long you are spending playing their games.

Once you’ve done this you will see a list of games that are available for download. I’m not sure if you will earn money if you already have the game installed because I’ve not tried this, but I have uninstalled and then reinstalled a game through the Appstation app and received credits for playing it.

Once you’ve done that you can access the game either through the app or from your phone screen and you’ll get coins for playing for certain lengths of times.

The coins vary per game, and via time length. So, I play a lot of Pirate Kings. It started off saying I need to play for a minute to earn 364 coins. Now it tells me to play for 1849 seconds to earn 1064 coins. These times don’t have to be continuous to earn either and you won’t find you have to sit there for half an hour straight playing the same game or else lose the coins you’ve earned. The app just adds up all of the time spent on the game, even it it’s not all in one sitting.

Am I just going to have to play a load of crappy games for pennies?

No! You aren’t. The games on offer are great games, some of which you probably already play. You’re not going to get rich playing games, that’s for sure, but if playing games on your phone is something you already do then you might as well get some money while doing it.

I’ve had these apps installed for about six days and so far I’ve made about £6. That’s £6 for a week of doing something that I already do anyway.

At the time of writing Appstation offer the following games:

  • Bingo Bash
  • Slotomania Slots
  • Word Trip
  • Family Farm Seaside
  • Star Trek: Fleet Command
  • Cookie Jam
  • POP! Slots (You can leave this on auto spin without even looking at your phone for a while)
  • Big Farm: Mobile Harvest
  • Solitare TriPeaks
  • Pirate Kings
  • Kings of Avalon: Dragon Warfare

Cash Alarm have on offer:

  • Slotmania Slots
  • Words With Friends 2
  • Guns of Glory
  • Cookie Jam blast
  • Merge Dragons
  • Matchington Mansion
  • Kings of Avalon: Dragon Warfare

How do I get my money?

On Appstation you can get paid out via paypal from as little as 50p. Cash Alarms minimum is £1.

You can take payment via Paypal, Amazon vouchers, Steam vouchers, iTunes vouchers, Pizza Express Vouchers, Starbucks vouchers, TK Maxx Vouchers and Zalando Vouchers.

How do I sign up?

Below are links to both of these apps. They are affiliate links and you will be signing up under me. It’s completely free to sign up and by signing up with an affiliate link you will not only start of with 5555 coins (nearly 50p) you will also get 25% of all coins that I earn, forever.
