For readers that need a mental break and are seeking new, cash-winning games, this Puzzle Bobble-like app may be right up your alley.
What is Bubble Shooter! Tournaments?
Bubble Shooter is a free iOS-only game where players aim for high scores to win cash prizes. The goal of Bubble Shooter is to pop as many bubbles as you can to collect more points than your opponent.
Bubble Shooter! Tournament is developed by Ilyon Dynamics Ltd. and powered by Skillz, a gaming competition platform. Skillz allows apps to offer leaderboards, trophies, cash or virtual currency prizes and loyalty programs.
How Does Bubble Shooter! Tournament Work?
After you download the app and set yourself up with an avatar and username, Bubble Shooter! Tournament will pair you with players around the world at your skill level to keep the competition fun and fair.
Each multiplayer app takes up to three minutes and can cut you off early if you are out of moves.
The main goal of the game is to aim your bubble at the board to clear rows strategically. When you create a sequence of three or more bubbles of the same color, they will pop. When you finish a color, it will not appear again.
The game will reward you with “TicketZ” that can be exchanged for prizes or cash. The game incentivizes you to use real money to “up-level” with the chance to win bigger prizes.
Can You Make Money? Is Bubble Shooter Legit?
Bubble Shooter! Tournaments has an average rating of 4.3 out of 5.0 stars on the iTunes App Store, and ranks #184 in the Puzzle category.
One reviewer in October 2018 said she won more than $1,300 in prizes, yet lost them due to a downgrade of her phone. Her 5-star review noted that when she re-downloaded the app, she won $25 in 20 minutes.
While a majority of Bubble Shooter! Tournaments reviews are 5 stars, negative reviews cite cash withdrawal periods of as long as five weeks, during which they were supposedly not able to play the game, various glitches, and disappointment with app updates related to difficulty aiming the bubble.
Is Bubble Shooter Available for Everyone?
The app is available for players around the world age 18 and older.
The cash-based tournaments are available in select countries only, per the iTunes App Store. Players in countries that do not enable cash-winning tournaments can still play for virtual “Z” currency.
Players can choose languages including English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Chinese, Portuguese, Russian or Japanese.
Is Bubble Shooter Worth Your Time?
Like other fast-paced games in which the goal is simply to “clear rows,” Bubble Shooter may be an enjoyable pastime for many people. That said, its “addictive” quality may be a good or bad thing for your life, depending on your situation and perspective.
Ultimately, for people who want to kill time on their mobile devices with the chance to win some money may want to give Bubble Shooter a go.
