Pop Spins is yet another one of those online games where you play different slot machines and (supposedly) earn money as a result.
But, is Pop Spins a legit way for you to make money online or is it a scam? I reveal my findings in this review.
You will find that Pop Spins is a fun and super easy way for you to start making virtual money online, but listen, that’s all you will make – virtual money.
If you’re considering joining, then I implore you to read the Terms and Conditions before you get started – or simply take my word for it.
Let me state it again.
The money you earn is virtual money (like monopoly money) so basically useless.
If you’re looking for a way to earn REAL money online, then you can check out the step-by-step training that helps me earn over $10,000+ per month working from home.
What is Pop Spins?
Pop Spins is an online game that allows you to earn virtual money by playing virtual slot machines online.
It’s a pretty easy concept in that all you have to do is to accrue “spins” in order to make virtual money.
Who uses Pop Spins?
The main users of Pop Spin are people who like to play slot games and make money at the same time.
You can join the website from any country in the world, however they do instruct you to read their terms and conditions first before joining, so something to consider doing when signing up.
How To Create A Pop Spins Account
It is really easy to create a Pop Spins account. Simply, go to their sign up page and enter in a username, email address, and password and click on the green “Create Account”button.
Once you’ve done that, you will need to verify your email address and you’re done.
You are only allowed one account on the site. If you cheat and create multiple accounts the site will delete your account and ban you from using the site.
How Does Pop Spins Work?
It’s a fairly simply concept and is based on the premise of collecting as many spins from completing certain tasks on the website in order to accrue as many spins as possible.
Your ability to earn in this game is solely based on the number of spins you can accumulate.
It is a game of chance and I’m not sure how the algorithm is set up in terms of how much money you earn per spin, but from experience, it’s NOT a lot.
You are given 50 spins, much like another program I reviewed called VeryDice, after you verify your email address and once you’ve played them, you will have a number of other ways in which you can earn more spins including inviting people to Pop Spins, entering coupon codes, completing offers, clicking on websites, playing lotto defusing bombs, and the list goes on.
The first spin I made, gave me 5 more spins with a friendly message to invite friends and increase my level to gain even more spins.
However, every subsequent spin following the first earned me $0.01 per spin, pretty lame, however I was able to rack up $1 in a matter of minutes by simply hitting the spin button several times.
They also have a countdown timer in the bottom right corner that tells you how long you’ve been on the platform, and also how many more minutes before you are illegible to claim your new set of free spins.
The second hour, I was able to claim my free spins which turned out to only be 5 free spins, and since I already had 26 left from the first time, I had a total of 31 spins at my disposal.
On one spin I was able to earn $0.25 and another $0.05 so the algorithm is pretty random as you would expect with a slot machine, and I assume is designed to reward you just enough to have you wanting more.
The entire game seems to be based upon getting people to stay on the platform, rewarding you for disabling Adblockers, viewing pop up and pop under ads, completing offers, clicking on website ads and inviting others to the platform to do the same.
Based on that understanding, I can only conclude that the owners of the website are making money from the offers you complete, the websites you click on and pop up ads you view.
With such a high pay out threshold of $100, you will naturally want to earn more spins and complete more offers in order to get more spins to make more money, however, some offers require that you submit your credit card details in order to complete a free trial.
And while, they do not charge your your credit card immediately, they will charge it if you haven’t canceled your subscription after the trial ends.
Problem is, sometimes the company makes it difficult to cancel a credit card, which invariably means you will get charged, and in some cases monthly, until you are able to cancel the subscription.
It’s just not worth the hassle in my opinion.
How Do You Make Money With Pop Spins?
Making money with Pop Spins requires absolutely no skill whatsoever, as it only requires that you click on a button in the website which results in you earning money.
You have NO control over how much money you earn in a single spin, as this is all down to chance, which I might add is generated by Pop Spins own slot machines algorithm.
Based on the money I made when playing Pop Spins, I would have to acquire over 5000 spins in order to come close to earning $100.
As mentioned earlier, Pop Spins offer you various ways of accruing more spins including playing games, inviting others and completing offers, however, there appears to be a heavy leaning toward getting people to complete offers, given most offers will give you 100+ spins for each offer completed. Some offers can be as high as 650 spins.
How Are You Paid?
In order to request payment you will have to have at least $100 in your account.
Once you reach the minimum payment threshold you can request payment, which I’m told can take several days to process.
When I go to the Withdrawal section in my account, there is no provision to enter your Paypal ID or any other payment method ID for that matter as shown in the picture below.
Granted I only have $1.61 in my account, but it doesn’t give me any confidence that when I earn $100, the payment fields are going to magically appear.
When I read their FAQ section I see the following.
When you reach the minimum payment threshold you will be able to use the winnings on website features.
I’m not sure what this means exactly, but it may mean that they don’t actually pay you money at all, but rather some sort of access to features on a website.
Then when I look at their Terms of Conditions page – I read the following.
None of credits, balances or other rewards on the Website grant you rights to real monetary value withdrawals and should be viewed as a virtual way to track your progress. User balances do not place the Website under an obligation and can be changed or nullified by the Website at any time and without prior notice.
While browsing the Internet I found a number of screenshots from people who have supposedly been paid by Pop Spins, which kind of doesn’t make sense, since they don’t actually pay you in real money – right?
And upon looking closer, I discovered that the amount $100 had a coma in place of a period as shown in the picture below, which suggests the image is fake.
What are people saying about Pop Spins?
Others have noticed that the website has excessive use of annoying ads that some time pops over your current screen or pops under your current screen. Either way, they are both annoying.
Some have said that it’s impossible to withdraw your earnings from the website, because there is no where to put your Paypal ID or any other ID for that matter to receive payment.
Some have said that, once you get close to the payment threshold the site will start to deduct your earnings from you.
The terms and agreement clearly state that this is a non-paying site even though they offer you payment options. You’ll need to read the terms and agreement carefully before joining this site and wasting your time.
What I Like about Pop Spins
- After learning more about this website, I don’t like much about it at all.
What I Don’t Like about Pop Spins
- Shady marketing tactics to get people to join, thinking that they will get paid for playing slot machine games online. Let’s face it – no one reads Terms and Conditions these days, and I guess they have used that to their advantage.
- I didn’t like the aggressive pop up and pop under ads on the site.
- I didn’t like that they try to get you to disable your adblocker on your site. Based on their FAQ page, I assume they get paid more for being able to display more ads to people.
- I didn’t like the fact that you don’t actually get paid from playing the game all.
- I was going to also mention that I didn’t like the high $100 threshold, until I realized that it was of no value anyway.
- They entice you to complete certain offers that ask for your credit card details. In some cases, if you’re unable to cancel a free trial offer in time, you will be billed for the free trial product and in some cases monthly until you’re able to get in touch with the company to cancel the subscription.
Do I Recommend Pop Spins?
I DO NOT recommend this website as a way to make money online. Furthermore, I do not recommend it as a way of entertainment or fun either, given all you’re doing is clicking on a button in the middle of your page.
The company uses shady tactics to get people to join, using the fact that most people don’t read the Terms and Conditions page when signing up to online opportunities.
Often, when reading the Terms and Conditions, companies use so much legal jargon, that even if you did read it, you wouldn’t understand what it meant.
All of the money you earn on the website is virtual money and there is no provision for you to link it up to a Paypal account or via any other payment method.
The company uses features in the game to reward you to disable your adblockers, so they can get paid by their advertisers and in some cases leaving your PC vulnerable to viruses, trojans and malware.
If you’re looking for a legit way to earn money online then I recommend you read this review.
