How you personally view gaming will determine whether or not these opportunities are for you. I enjoy trying new games and have been a game and app tester for a few years now. How often you play will determine how much you earn with most games, unless of course you win! If you play games regularly, why not earn some money too? Most of us have played games at one point or another. It doesn’t take exceptional skill to play the average game and there are always instructions and “cheat sheets” that give hints on best strategies to win.
Several of the games listed do have age requirements: most often users should be at least 18 years of age to participate. I assume that is because there are ‘Adult’ features to some games, like buying and exchanging property, gambling, etc,. Besides, I believe it is a good idea that when people I don’t know say a thing isn’t for kids, that I take their word for it. All games these days tend to allow for in-app purchases and have caused issues for the parents whose kids were the buyers!
There are a lot of online casino games that are not listed here, but if you enjoy gambling, you can search Google for casino games that pay. I have listed a few here, but there are thousands of page results for casino games on Google. Of course you don’t need degrees or much experience to earn playing games, though each game does require skill to surpass each level.
Concluding Thoughts: There is no skill needed to earn by playing games. Be sure to examine age requirements of each website. This is just another fun, do it when you feel like it method, to earn money online. If you know of any games where users can earn money feel free to post them in the comments section.
