If you are looking for a fun way to earn extra cash online, there’s an app called JustPlay that claims you can earn a decent amount simply by playing mobile games. It’s definitely an intriguing claim, but before you download the app, I would suggest you learn more about the app first.
For instance, is the app legit or is it a scam? It’s important to find out if the app will really pay you or not. So, let me address this right away. Yes, JustPlay is indeed a legit app since it will really pay you. But is it worth using though?
That’s a whole different question and to answer that, we have to factor in a few things. This JustPlay app review will give you an inside look and show exactly what you can expect so you can determine if it is really worth using or not.
So, let’s go ahead and find out if JustPlay is really worth it.
What is JustPlay and what does it offer?
JustPlay is a fairly new Get-Paid-To (GPT) app that will reward you for playing their featured mobile games. It’s a lot similar to Playsmart, which is another app that offers the same kind of opportunity. It hasn’t been around for a long time but it has a decent number of members that have already been earning.
Now, to figure out if it is worth it or not, we have to first understand how it works. And to do that, we need to take a closer look at the earning opportunities it offers.
I have, therefore, made a video that gives you an inside look and shows exactly how you can earn from JustPlay. You can also read all the details below the video.
Option 1 – Playing featured games
The only way to earn from this app is by playing their featured games. When you log in to the app, you will immediately see all the featured games you can play.
And may I say, they do have a decent number of games you can play. So you won’t easily run out of games to play.
Now, to start earning, choose a game you want to play and press it. It will then take you to the app page of the game. You have to download the game first. Then, once it is downloaded, you have to go back to the JustPlay app and access the game from there.
That’s the most important step. Because if you open the game directly without going through the JustPlay app, it won’t be able to track your progress, and you won’t receive any reward.
As for how you will receive rewards, it will mostly depend on the game you are playing. Some games will reward you with a certain number of coins at random times. But to claim the coins, you have to watch a video ad.
In other games, you will earn a certain number of coins every time you complete a level. But again, before you can claim the coins, you have to watch a video ad again. This is the only annoying part of this app, in my opinion. You have to keep closing video ads.
The one thing you need to keep in mind is, every day, there’s a maximum number of coins you can earn. It will be displayed the first time you log in every day. Once you’ve earned the maximum, you can still keep playing featured games, but the coins you will receive will be drastically reduced.
So, I would suggest you just stop playing when that happens because it would just be a poor way to spend your time.
As you can probably guess, that’s how these apps earn money aside from the ads. They get paid to recommend certain mobile games, and these game developers will pay them a certain amount when they are able to get a certain number of new users.
The number of coins you can earn from every game will usually range from around 10 to 200 coins. Some games will pay you more, while some will pay less.
Option 2 – Paid offers
You can also earn by completing paid offers. If you’ve been a member of GPT sites before, then this will be very familiar.
The idea is that you perform these short tasks called paid offers to earn rewards. These tasks will usually ask you to do something like answer a survey or quiz, watch a video, go to a social media page, and more.
To start working on an offer, just press the offer you are interested in, and you will see the complete instructions you need to follow. Make sure you take note of the instructions because if you miss even one step, you will not be able to complete the offer, and you won’t earn the reward.
You will typically earn around 100 to 200 coins from each offer. However, there really aren’t a lot of offers you can do on a daily basis. So, don’t expect to earn a lot from this opportunity.
How do you get paid?
The way JustPlay designed its payment system is actually quite unique. And let me explain why.
As you can see in the photo above, you can only cash out at certain times. When you log in to the app, you will immediately see a countdown timer in the upper left-hand corner. When that timer hits zero, you can cash out.
JustPlay offers payment via PayPal if you’ve earned at least $2. However, you won’t exactly know how many coins are required to redeem a $2 PayPal withdrawal because there is no exact exchange rate for coins to cash.
You will only know if the coins you’ve earned will be enough to make a PayPal withdrawal because the app will tell you how much your total coins are worth. If you don’t want to withdraw your earnings via PayPal, you can choose to redeem an Amazon or Google Play gift card instead. But to do so, you will need to earn at least $5.
Their payment system is relatively straightforward, but it’s kind of hard to determine exactly how much you’ve earned by just looking at the number of coins you’ve accumulated. But I do like the fact that they pay via PayPal since that is one of the most convenient payment methods, in my opinion.
However, that you can only cash out at certain times is a bit suspicious, and it almost seems like they do not want to make it easy for you to get your money. I have never seen a strange system like this before (and I have tested hundreds of sites and apps), and this is a huge disadvantage of JustPlay, in my opinion.
Also, that they do not show an exact exchange ratio for points to cash right away is very strange and an unethical trick, in my opinion.
Apps like this should always be very transparent about the payout methods and make it easy to get paid. If they do not do this, I would suggest just using other apps instead.
If you are interested in more sites/apps that pay via PayPal, I recommend you instead check out the top sites that pay via PayPal.
How much money can you make?
The amount you can earn from this app will mostly depend on how much time you are willing to invest in it. But let me tell you right now, you won’t get rich from it.
The typical amount you can earn from this app daily will be around $1 to $2. That is if you really maximize all the opportunities it offers.
That amount is actually pretty decent for an app like this. Other apps won’t even allow you to earn half of that every day. So, in terms of earning potential in comparison to other apps that offer the same opportunity, JustPlay is surprisingly better.
But overall, the earning potential of the app will still not be that great. It will still take a lot of time and effort for you to earn a decent amount. And then there is the hassle of trying to time it so you can even get your money.
Can you use it on a desktop?
Seeing as you will need to play mobile games to earn, the answer to the question posted will be no, you can’t. You will really need a mobile device to earn from JustPlay.
As for their app, it will only work with an Android device. So, if you are an iOS user, then this app is not for you. The app is relatively easy to use as well. So you won’t have a hard time getting used to it.
However, as explained earlier, you will encounter a lot of video ads, which can get quite annoying in the long run. There’s no way around this, so if you are really interested in this app, you just have to power through the video ads.
Who can join JustPlay?
While you might think that JustPlay is available globally because most apps like this are, you will be disappointed. JustPlay is only available in certain countries. And unfortunately, they don’t really tell you which countries it is available in.
The only way to find out if it is available in your country is to search for it on Google Play. If it will appear in your search result, then it is available in your country. If it doesn’t, then you are out of luck – or maybe you are actually lucky since you will then not be wasting your time using it?.
If it is available, though, you just have to install the app on your device. You don’t even have to register. When you open the app, you can immediately start earning without even signing up.
The only problem with this kind of system is that you can’t transfer your account to a different device. It will be bound to the device you installed it to. And if you uninstall the app, you will lose all of the coins you’ve earned, and you will have to start from scratch again.
Can you get support?
A problem with this app is that it doesn’t have a support section. So, if you have any questions about the app or you encounter technical difficulties, you don’t have any help page you can check out.
But you can send an email to their support team (firstname.lastname@example.org). So you will still be able to receive assistance if you need it.
Overall, I would say they have a decent support system in place for their members since you can still communicate with their support team conveniently.
JustPlay is a GPT app that will reward you for playing their featured mobile games. It has a couple of good features, but it also has some limitations you need to know.
Let me finish this review by summarizing the app’s pros and cons to give you an overview of what it offers. That way, you can decide if this is a good fit for you or not.
- Offers a fun way of earning
- Pays via PayPal
- Limited earning opportunities offered
- Low rewards
- Once you install the app, you can’t uninstall it without losing all the coins you’ve earned
- Inconvenient payout system
In my opinion, JustPlay is not really worth it. You can’t say that the app has great earning potential, and you will have to invest a lot of time and effort in order to earn a significant amount. And in addition to this, they have one of the most inconvenient payout systems I have seen.
But if you like playing mobile games and you are looking to earn extra cash at the same time, this can be an option.
Now, if you are looking for a faster way to earn extra cash, I would instead suggest you check out the top survey and GPT sites in your country. The sites and apps on this list all have good earning potential. You won’t have to invest a lot of time to earn a decent amount.
Plus, you will definitely find a site or app you can join regardless of where you live.
