Game Review: Bitcoin Blast
- Match-3 meets crypto
- Challenge of advancing levels
- The Bitcoin aspect
Bitcoin Blast is a match-3 puzzle game merged with the world of cryptocurrency. The Penny Hoarder rates it as one of the 21 Games That Pay Real Money. Here’s our review:
Gameplay and Concept: Developed by Bling Financial, Bitcoin Blast is a popular game that combines the addictive nature of match-3 puzzle games, like Candy Crush, with the opportunity to earn cryptocurrency. The gameplay is simple yet engaging, requiring players to match tiles in a line or chain to progress through levels of increasing difficulty.
User Accessibility and Experience: Bitcoin Blast is designed to be user-friendly, with a straightforward sign-up process requiring only an email address. The game is available on both iOS and Google Play Store, making it accessible to a wide range of players. However, it’s important to note that the game incorporates ads after each level, which some users might find intrusive. Despite this, the app is generally well-received for its simple and enjoyable gameplay.
Earning Potential and Transparency: While Bitcoin Blast allows players to earn Bitcoin, it’s crucial to set realistic expectations. The earning potential is quite low, with most users earning a fraction of a cent in USD per day. The developers are transparent about this, stating clearly that it’s not a quick way to earn significant amounts of Bitcoin. Cashouts are possible via Coinbase once a player reaches 1,000 Bling Points, but the exchange rate for these points to Bitcoin is extremely low.
Global Accessibility and Restrictions: Bitcoin Blast doesn’t impose geographic restrictions, meaning it’s available for users worldwide. This global accessibility is a positive aspect, allowing players from various regions to enjoy the game and earn a small amount of Bitcoin. However, to cash out, players must use Coinbase, which may require identity verification.
Bottom Line: Bitcoin Blast offers an entertaining way to earn a small amount of Bitcoin while playing a fun game. The app’s transparency regarding its low earning potential is commendable. It’s best suited for those who enjoy match-3 games and are interested in cryptocurrency.
About our TPH Ratings: The Penny Hoarder bases its game ratings on app store reviews and our team’s experiences and insights. We score 1-5 stars overall and for each of three factors: engaging gameplay, the app’s design quality and your chances to win money. Our ratings bear similarities to the app store user reviews but may differ, especially since we’re emphasizing the chance to win money more than many users might. Here’s what we mean by each factor:
- Engaging gameplay: How fun is the game, and for how long? Is it addictively fun?
- Design quality: How intuitive is the interface? Are the graphics and controls high-quality? Does the design add to your enjoyment, or does it frustrate you? Does the app ever freeze up or overload you with ads? These are all important factors in design quality.
- Chance to win money: All of the games on our list offer a legitimate chance to win money, but some are better than others. We take off points if we see multiple reports of a low chance of winning, and for payout difficulties or delays.
