You may have come across multiple platforms where you play some games and earn cash or gift cards over the years. A common question that may occur to your mind is, are these games legit? Which amongst these games are the best, and how much money can you make from them, and how? What if we told you that it is possible to get paid while playing online video games. Many people find this sketchy, but it is as true as it gets. Initially, when I heard about most of these games, even I was skeptical, but before drafting this list, I have personally tried over three dozen such games, and four of these sounded terrific to us. So, even though these may sound too good to be true, they pay, and they are safe to play. Let us get started and take a look at these gaming applications one by one.


One of the oldest gaming platforms that can help you earn good money is Parimatch, comments Robert, an expert with MyPlumbersChoice This brand has been around for approximately three decades and has a trusted following of over two million players globally. It originated in Ukraine, and over the years, it gained popularity in other parts of the country.

Parimatch presents to you a plethora of fantasy games, such as cricket, hockey, football, tennis, basketball, and even e-sports, such as CS: GO and DOTA 2. If you wish to try out other games, such as baccarat, poker, roulette, blackjack, or Indian games, for instance, Teen Patti, even these can be found. There are multiple variations available for the game. If you want to try some virtual sports, you can enjoy the virtual basketball league or instant football, or horse racing. They also have a mobile app available for both iOS and Android users.

Parimatch allows an easy deposit facility, and you can find several deposit modes for easy accessibility. Typically, your withdrawal amount will take a day or two once you place the request. However, we have even seen cases wherein the withdrawal gets credited into your bank account in an hour. You will have to authenticate your profile by submitting the requisite documents. However, the entire process is swift and hassle-free, and the users can do it without any issue. So, register, and you can start earning right from the moment you pay your first deposit. Parimatch is incredibly famous for its world-class security, hassle-free withdrawals and deposits, and superb customer support. They have multiple deposit methods, such as Bitcoin, UPI, Bank Transfer, Mastercard, Visa, and others. In it, you can play directly with your friends and family or other online players.  


Next in line, we have an obvious entrant in the list, that is, the Swagbucks. This game can be played on, iOS, and Android and has a good payout of ~2 to 3 USD every hour. One of the best things about Swagbucks is that you do not have to bear any cost for most of their games, and their payout methods are also simple. In Swagbucks, you can either get cash via PayPal or get your Gift cards, which will be sent to you via email.

Swagbucks is the number one platform online that helps you make good money by watching videos, taking surveys, and playing games for cash. They have an excellent well-built, and well-reviewed platform. When you enter the game’s hub, you will see that many games give you cash, while others give you a cashback.

Further, you must know that if you play renowned games, such as Bejeweled 2 and Trivial Pursuit through Swagbucks, you will not receive any money. In this case, Swagbucks will instead provide you with a reasonable rebate in exchange for the cash that you shell out inside the game.

Alternatively, there is a second category too, wherein Swagbucks will pay you. In such specific games, you will get paid in gift cards or cash. A few of these games are incredibly popular, such as Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire and Forge of Empires. Why does SB pay you for these games? In SB, there are games that you playtest for the developers, and for them, SB will pay you money equal to ~2 USD hourly in points, comments Shaun, a TrueBlueFisherMen representative. You can redeem this money only when you make about 5 USD. This money can be redeemed as a PayPal transfer or as a Gift card. One of the key reasons for the popularity of Swagbucks is that on it, you can find a plethora of non-game activities too. So, when you collect points to reach your payout threshold, you can even take a break from gaming and take surveys or watch videos to earn some more.


The MyPoints is a website with an interface that is quite similar to Swagbucks. On MyPoints, you get rewards for different activities, such as playing games, watching videos, and taking online surveys. You can earn anywhere from 2 to 4 USD every hour on this platform, and the games can be played on and the mobile apps on Android and iOS platforms. Similar to SB, even in MyPoints, you do not have to bear any cost to play. The primary focus of MyPoints is helping you earn when you shop. So, the platform will reward you with as much as forty-percent in points when you purchase at the partnered store or site. You can even find coupons on the website, which you can use for saving more as you shop.

For earning some rewards while you enjoy, you can try out some of the MyPoints surveys. You can even take up some of the poll questions on their site. These actions will enable you to build up some points without shelling out money.

You can redeem the accumulated rewards for money by sending it to your PayPal account, or you can redeem them for several retailer gift cards. Alternatively, these points can also be converted into United MileagePlus miles. This can help you save big on your next flight booking.


Another free mobile application that will reward you for trying out new games and applications is the Boodle app. You can use the application to earn some coins every time you try a new app or game on their platform. Further, there is also an option to earn coins via other activities, such as completing the special offers, answering questions, referring friends, and discovering the deals on their platform. These coins can be used to get gift cards from retailers, such as Amazon, Nike, Chipotle, and others. Sadly the application is available only for Android users.

So, these are the four best platforms that you can try to earn money while you have some fun playing games online.
