Cashman Blast Review: Can You Cash Out?

Some of the links may be from a sponsor. Advertising Disclosure

The Cashman Blast app has more than 1,000,000 downloads and a decent 4/5 rating on the Google Play Store.

It’s an app that rewards you to play “challenging match three” puzzle games.

I have talked about these apps before, and 99.9% of the time, they are not worth your time.  The main reason is that you won’t earn any money, and even if you think they do, these apps will make you think you’re getting close when in reality, you’re miles away.

Is the Cashman Blast app any different?

Let’s find out.

Earning Money Playing Games

To earn money with the app, you will have to match colored blocks and collect enough dollars and coins to cash out.

The premise is simple in that you will just click on the same colored blocks to complete the puzzle, as seen above.  The more blocks you can get rid of at once, the more coins you can earn.  Every so many blocks can do something, too.  For example, six blocks can create a squirt gun effect whereas nine blocks eliminated can create a fan of sorts.  All of these interactions can do more to your puzzle.  Put simply, you will want to get rid of as many blocks as possible in one click.  It’s very easy to understand.

And, like most puzzle games, as you progress, the levels will get harder, but you have the chance to earn more.  Whenever you log into the app, you will be able to see which app you can play at the moment.

Whenever you finish a level, you can spin the wheel, in which you can win a variety of prizes, from free cash to coins; however, before you spin, the app will usually make you watch a 30 to 60- second ad.  This is typical with these apps.

The app in itself seems to be fun, but there are a lot of ads and the games seem to be pretty easy.  Plus, as you go on, it seems like you can earn a TON of money, however, as you probably already imagined, there is a caveat.

Cashing Out

When you first download the app, you will earn a ton of money.  I’m talking $20 to $25 in less than a minute.  This can sound awesome because most apps only pay you a few cents here and there, nowhere near this.

However, when you go to cash out, you will see that they have one of the highest thresholds in the industry at $150.

As you can imagine, you’re going to play this game for hours, only to find out that you will get so close but never get there.  It’s a ploy to get you to play the game for hours in hopes you can earn something.  Remember, if it’s too good to be true, IT IS.

Aside from cashing out with your cash, you can also use your points to use to redeem gift cards.  This, like the cash, can take some time as well, seeing a $2 Amazon gift card can cost 1000K in points.  That’s a lot.

Read the Reviews

I’m only one person, I know, but if you read the many reviews online, you will see people saying the same thing.

I could continue to post reviews, but I wanted to just take the top two because they all share the same complaint.  The cash comes in fast at first and then the rewards slowly trickle away.  This is very standard for these types of apps.

Final Thoughts

1/10In the end, Cashman Blast will not pay you much at all, even if you get lucky to cash out.  Even if you do, it’s maybe a $2 Amazon gift card.  But, guess what?  It’s going to take you FOREVER to get here.

If you want to make money, skip this 100%, but if you want to play games and watch a ton of ads, then consider it.  If you want a puzzle game for fun, this isn’t it, unfortunately.

That’s going to do it for now.
