Words to Win is one of the many apps that offers you real money when you play fun puzzle-like games such as crossword puzzles. I have reviewed so many of these apps before, and mostly, they will never be worth your time. I think this one is going to join the list, too.
In today’s review, I wanted to talk about the very popular Words to Win app. It has more than 500,000+ downloads and an okay 4.3/5 rating. It has a lot of downloads, but it doesn’t have great reviews.
Whether you have heard about it or want to make money playing games on your phone, let’s see if the Words to Win app is worth your time. As in all of my reviews, I’m always 100% honest, only recommending what I feel is worth your time.
How Words to Win Works
Words to Win is a puzzle game that’s operated by Rewardify Inc and is available for both Android and Apple devices. The app states that you can win real cash prizes when you complete various crossword-like puzzles. You can also enter sweepstakes as you level up.
If you ever have played any crossword puzzle such as the screenshot you see above, then you probably know how it works. You slide the letters to make a word and then fill in the crossword puzzle to complete it.
To start playing, you will have to download the app and then start completing the puzzle (such as the one above) to level up. You will earn points and complete levels whenever you place letters in the right place. As you level up, the puzzles can get harder, but if you get stuck, you can always shuffle the new letters to get a hint.
Once you complete a level, you usually earn about $0.05 in gold coins, which is the app’s in-house currency. Completing a level also lets you enter sweepstakes.
When you sign up, no account is necessary at first, and it’s open to users worldwide. Keep in mind, however, that users in countries such as the U.S., Australia, Canada and U.K, will have better payout options.
Aside from playing the game, you can also log in daily and complete levels to receive scratch-off tickets as well as additional opportunities to win tokens or real cash prizes. Whenever you earn a token, you can use them to purchase an additional sweepstakes entry. As for the cash prizes, you can add them to your deposit to cash out later.
Throughout the app, you can spin the wheel where you can win up to $10 in prizes, and you can also watch videos to earn even more. You can also enter the $50 sweepstakes daily by using your tokens to purchase tickets for various contests. If you won this contest, the money is added to your wallet.
Once you reach at least $7 in gold coins, you can cash out, which is much lower in comparison to competitors I have talked about in the past.
As you can see, you can choose from two options, either PayPal or Amazon. This is fine since 99% of people using these apps want these two rewards.
However, what you will find out is that you will never get to this point.
Let me explain…
Is it legit?
No, and let me explain why.
This is one of the many apps that lures you into playing the game, making it look like you’re going to get to that $7 cash out. HOWEVER, when you get close to the $7 balance, the game will slow down to a trickle, where you will no longer see your balance increase. Instead, you will just watch a ton of ads and you won’t make money in doing so.
Take a look at this review, for instance:
What happens is that you will watch a ton of ads, make them money and the app will never have to pay out. Great for them, right? This is just a pure sign of greed.
Honestly, I don’t even get how this app has a 4+ rating on the Google Play Store when the most liked reviews all have one star.
I’m just one review, but you will find that many online say the same thing.
- word puzzles can be fun
- excessive ads, often forcing interaction or app downloads.
- deceptive cash-out system, many users are stuck at $6.55 and unable to reach the $7 minimum.
- time-consuming with no guaranteed payout.
- app may crash or freeze frequently.
- gameplay can be repetitive and boring.
In the end, Words to Win is just another sham. Sure, there are a ton of levels to play, but there are a ton of ads to watch. You won’t make any money, and if it feels like you will be, you will never hit that $7 cash out. If you don’t want to believe me or the hundreds of other reviews, then you will be wasting your time doing a lot of ad watching.
Honestly, apps like this make me very mad and I don’t know why Google allows them on the store. I don’t know how these places function, either. They pocket all of the money from you watching ads and give you nothing in return.
That’s going to do it for now.
As always, if you want to vent, you’re more than welcome to do so below.
