Money Turn App Review (My Honest Take)

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

The Money Turn app has more than 1,000,000 downloads and states that you can earn gift cards while you play games.  Once you start playing, they track your time while playing and then reward you for the time you spent.

There are a lot of these apps on the market, and sadly, most don’t pay much.  I’m talking a dollar, maybe two, per hour.  These apps will never be worth your time.  The games are mostly boring and they will drive you bonkers when you’re trying to earn some money.

While I don’t want to scare you away, I just want to speak the truth.  That’s why I created this website after all.

In today’s review, I want to talk about the very popular Money Turn app.

Can you make money playing games?

Is it legit?

Let’s find out!

What is Money Turn?

Money Turn is one of the many GPT-like websites on the Google Play Store.  And, while the app focuses mainly on playing games, they do have other money-making opportunities, such as paid offers and even referring your friends.  It is a legitimate app, however, as I have noted so many times, it doesn’t mean it’s going to be worth your time.

Below, I want to talk about how you can earn money as well as how long it will take you to cash out on average.

To get started, you will need to connect your Google or Facebook account.  You can create a profile directly on the app if you so choose and you will need to let them track your playtime so that you can earn coins while playing the games.

You only need 18+ to join and it’s open worldwide; however, where you live will greatly dictate how many offers you will see.  Your results will vary.

Earning Money

The main way to earn money from the app is to play games.  When you log into the app for the first time, you will be able to see the games you can play at the moment.

However, when I logged in, I only saw one game, which was Coin Masters.

As you can see in the screenshot, I would get 982 coins per minute, however, as I have seen with so many of these apps, you will see this minute rate drop drastically as you play the game.  They do this thinking you’re going to reach your payout fast, but in reality, it will take you a long time.

When you earn the coins, you need to make sure that you open the app from the Money Turn app, not separately.  If you fail to do so, it won’t track you and you can’t get rewarded.  This can be said about any of these apps.

The downfall to this app is that they don’t have a lot of games like the competitors such as Mistplay and Swagbucks.

So, even if you sign up, you will soon see that there won’t be many options.

Depositing Coins

The unique thing about the app is that you can deposit the coins you have already earned and earn interest, similar to that of a bank.


Every time you earn money, you can earn “investor points” and these are needed to increase your investor level.  This level is what’s going to determine your interest rate when you deposit your coins.  The higher your level, the more you can earn on your coins.

It’s an okay way to earn money passively, but it won’t earn you much.

Getting Paid

Like most of these apps, you will have to wait until you meet a threshold before you cash out.

In this case, you will need at least 4,999 coins to cash out for $0.50 via PayPal.  However, if you want other options, it can start at $5.  These options include TGI Friday’s, Google Play and Xbox, to name a few.

After you cash out, it can take up to five days to receive your payout.

Final Thoughts

2/10Money Turn doesn’t offer you much.  In fact, it’s probably one of the worst “get paid to play” apps, solely because they have no options.  It seems to be a big complaint.

Even if they have a ton of options, the hourly rate is so poor.  I’m thinking you will make $1 to $2 per hour at most.  Unless you really want to play that game, you will be bored trying to earn a dollar here and there.  Trust me, there are much better ways to earn money.

That’s going to do it for now.
