Chances are, you probably play some sort of game on your phone in your down time. Maybe you’re a Solitaire kind of person. Maybe you have more fun with a classic bubble-shooter type of game.
Either way, your gaming skills could earn you some serious prizes this holiday season.
Not only could you win up to $83 per win playing Solitaire Cash or Bubble Cash, but between Dec. 17 and 27, you can enter a raffle where you could win major prizes — including tickets to the Super Bowl and front-row, VIP tickets to Katy Perry.
Playing Solitaire for Money: How to Win up to $83/Game
Solitaire Cash is a free iPhone app that lets you play for money. You could get paid up to $83 per win. You might be thinking: There’s got to be a catch. This is definitely one of those spammy apps, right?
Wrong. There really isn’t a catch. Sure, you can pay to play some higher-stakes games (starting at 30 cents), but there’s no pressure.
Here’s an overview of how it works: You’re dealt a deck and compete against at least five other players. Everyone gets the same deck. This is totally skills-based, so no luck is required. The top three players who solve the deck fastest can win real money — anywhere from $1 to $83.
The app is free to download, and it’s a game you already know and love. Plus there’s no risk, so it’s worth a shot, right? Over on the App Store, it has over a million downloads and more than 15,000 ratings, averaging 4.7 stars (out of 5).
Blasting Bubbles for Money: How to Win up to $83/Game
Similar to Solitaire Cash, Bubble Cash is an iPone app that’s free to download and is completely skill-based. The app is free to download and play, although the cash tournaments aren’t free. However, there is a regularly scheduled “Freeroll” tournament, where users can compete for cash using only the gems that they’ve earned in the game.
Here’s an overview of how the game works: In tournaments, you compete against other players within your skill level, who all receive the same layout. Just match three bubbles of the same color, then use your finger to aim and blast them away to clear the board. The top three players in each tournament win real money — anywhere from $1 to $83.
It’s totally skill-based, so there’s no luck involved. To get started, just download the free app and start playing your first game immediately.
How to Win Even More Prizes
As if winning cash weren’t enough, from Dec. 17 – 27, you can enter each game’s raffles to win even more prizes. First prize for Solitaire Cash is a “Football Mania” package that includes tickets to the Super Bowl, three nights in a five-star hotel closest to the stadium, an all-inclusive pregame bar and buffet and transportation to and from the game.
Second prize is a “Top Artist Experience:” first-row VIP tickets to watch Katy Perry in Las Vegas — including flights, three nights in the five-star Resorts World hotel, pre-show drinks and red carpet photo opps.
Third prize is the “Vegas Experience,” which includes front-row tickets to Billy Joel in Las Vegas, including flights, a five-star hotel stay, pre-show drinks and a high-end dinner.
