Clash of Clans

How would you like to make money while attacking other villages? Clash of Clans is an addictive “strategy” game where you build your own town by collecting resources and training troops. You will fight other players for valuables, and the more valuables you get the more people will want to play your game. It’s a no-brainer that earning money by playing this game is not going to be hard at all!

Candy Crush Saga

While Candy Crush has a few variations, the main game is basically the same: match candy pieces. But the prizes in the game are different depending on how you play. If you play casually, then it’s not going to be that much of a problem. But if you want to get serious about making money, then don’t think too much and just get in there and start matching!

Flappy Bird

The objective of this simple but highly addictive game is “Don’t Touch The Green Bird”. This means as long as it’s not green (and there is a lot of green space), keep tapping your screen to get it through all the obstacles. This might seem really simple, but the difficulty in completing it makes it so addicting that millions of people are trying to get all five stars for each level!

Hay Day

Hay Day is a family-friendly farming and construction game that gives you a chance to create your own farm. You can either play for free or use your real money to purchase different items, like crops and new tools. The goal is simple: plant crops and animals; harvest them to earn money; buy equipment and expand your farm with machinery. It’s actually quite beautiful when you’re done with all the work!

Rule of Survival

Rule of Survival is a multiplayer game where you team up with other players and either fight against other teams or develop your resources to survive the apocalypse. The game is based on AR and VR which makes it quite promising. You can purchase items for real money while keeping your own money safe with PayPal or Google Play. Regardless of what you choose, you are going to make some serious money!

Wild West Guns

If you’re a fan of Roblox, then this free-to-play app should definitely interest you — it’s much more than just a Roblox clone. With this fun game, you can make money by playing, selling items, hunting animals, or building buildings. The different maps are well-designed and are guaranteed to keep the player entertained for a long time!

Tomb Raider: Underworld

Tomb Raider: Underworld is an updated version of the original game and it’s considered to be one of the best games on mobile devices. It’s never been easier to make money with mobile games than with this one, whether you’re spending real or virtual currency. You can purchase new quests and unlock new locations for real money while completing tasks for in-game currency as well.

Drift Legends

Drift Legends is a fun game that will keep you engaged and entertained for hours. This is one of the most popular driving games, and when you’re done with your daily work or chores, it’s definitely a game worth playing! What you can do once to make money in this game is that you can run high-value car events — races, tournaments, etc. — where people pay for entry. 

8 Ball Pool

8 Ball Pool is one of the oldest mobile games available on the market and it has been downloaded more than five million times on Google Play alone. This online multiplayer game allows you to be a pool shark and try to score as many points as possible. Personalizing your character and collecting different clothes, clothing sets, accessories, and shoes will require real money. Of course, there is no way that you could make all the money for yourself without advertising.

Clash Royale

Clash Royale is a free-to-play game that has really taken off in the last few years. It’s probably the most played game on Android devices right now, although not everyone knows that it’s even free! Pretty much every player gets paid other than only 1% of players, but what they do get paid is enough to make a living (if they play correctly).

Black Hole

Black Hole is a great game with plenty of ways you can make money. In fact, the game itself has more than 200 levels to conquer. You start as a lowly astronaut, but by collecting and using different items you can earn money and unlock new outfits and skins. The best part: it’s free, so you can have a try without spending a dime!
