Invariably one will come across questionable applications and occasionally finding a certain wallet can be impossible due to the uncanny nature of SEO mechanics. However, some important applications have come about in the Bitcoin Android space, and we’re not talking about wallets or price watchers though. We’re simply talking about the games and apps!
1. Oh Crop!
This is a game much like Plants vs. Zombies in which the player must defeat evil plants. Every week, the top 15 players in Oh Crop! are rewarded for their savvy in bitcoins. Additionally, players can earn free BTC in a faucet like scenario where they view a video advertisement and receive a disbursement.
2. Coin Flapper
Coin Flapper is the ideal situation for the recovering Flappy Birds addict, as the free version limits the amount one can play and rewards the time spent with a freely earned Bitcoin balance.
3. Bitcoin Aliens
The most straightforward way to obtain free bitcoins, Bitcoin Aliens is a faucet masquerading as a game. The app will pay you to watch advertisements as it will pay you to slaughter aliens efficiently.
4. The Blockchain Game
Chief among them is the Blockchain Game. You sign up with a two-step sign-up process which involves giving over your e-mail address and then your Bitcoin address.
5. Pop Bubbles
This game takes more of a slot machine approach, and it is completely possible to get a 0.00 prize. The game also offers paid upgrades, such as adding more time to each session. This would make it less popular with the faucet surfers and free Bitcoiners of the world, but nonetheless, it overall seems to have less advertising interruptions.
6. Read Books Online
Readers may remember CCN’s coverage of PaidBooks, a site run by the friendly folks behind Bitcoin Aliens. It has the same functionality as a regular faucet, but instead pays users for reading classic books. It is one of the more interesting and engaging methods of giving away free money, as it gives the user the opportunity to engage in more ways than simply getting around a CAPTCHA and pressing a couple of buttons.
7. Roll and Ball
This new game is more straightforward than most: in the two versions of the game, you can either get 10% or 40% of the advertising. The 10% option is immediate, whereas the 40% option is based on “future” advertising profits. The concept of the actual game is simply enough: roll a ball around a table using your phone until you have collected all the coins on the table.
8. Play Dice
Most dice websites allow the user to have a free balance to play with, albeit a very small amount. Examples of sites that do this are PrimeDice and 999Dice. Whether you’ll be able to play the actual games depends on your jurisdiction, though you can often withdraw the money you’ve earned for free regardless of where you live. It is possible to research dice strategies and take the free amount and turn it into a substantial amount of money if you’re willing to invest the time. The author once took a 0.000005 faucet payout and turned it into .1 BTC, which was over $30 at the time.
