Searching for a quick and simple way to make money online? Without having to create a website or other complicated strategies?
Well, I found a cool opportunity that you’ll love…
It’s important to remember that these types of opportunities are to make some fast cash but it’s not a long-term solution.
Not passive, and not life-changing income, but a little cushion padding for your finances.
There’s also not much room for growth (we’ll talk about how you can make a real online business later on in this article).
How would you like to make money and earn prizes by playing games on your computer?
I know you probably have seen these kind of advertisements pop-up all over the place, but I can honestly say that some of these work!
Can You Really Make Cash and Earn Prizes Playing Facebook Games?
I recently stumbled across a new internet advertisement that peaked my interest.
Having wasted hours of my youth during Summer college breaks, my friends and I would spend days and nights hanging out playing games like Grand Theft Auto, Tekken, and Madden NFL.
Boy, if I could have made money playing video games back then…
How cool would that have been?
Sometimes I mentally kick my past self for not thinking of this earlier!
Oh wait…I did (make money playing games, not kicking my past self).
My best friend and I would play Tekken for $1 dollar per fight and…
Well, unfortunately, after 300+ fights at 4 o’clock in the morning… I only made $21 dollars.
Of course, that was just friends having fun.
I could have made a whole a lot more cash, if I found this opportunity back in the day (which probably would have been spent on even more games!).
But now I have discovered that it really is possible to make money playing games, and it’s really easy too.
I’ll show you how to get started in a second.
How to Make Money Playing Facebook Video Games?
The advertisement that I saw clearly states “Make Money Playing Facebook Games”.
But, as I began to investigate this program, there appears to be plenty of companies that would be glad to pay people to test out their games and help them find issues that need to be fixed.
I should make it clear that you’re job is to test the game, and take note of any bugs and other issues.
You’re providing a legitimate service.
See, the video game industry is massive.
And most of the time, game developers want to release the absolute best product possible to their fans (and it takes a long time to make a working game!).
There are different product phases the game has to go through before it’s released.
First, the developers test the product, thoroughly.
Then they hire professional game testers, then they (sometimes) open BETA access, and the developers continue to work on fixing the issues that the players report.
Playing Games for Cash is Fun But…
Creating Passive Income Online Is So Much Better >>
So that means the game has to be tested over and over, while the little kinks are found and smoothed out.
This process can take a long time, but it’s the best way to develop a good game.
This is definitely a cool idea for anyone who likes games and has an eye for details!
Yes, there are a lot of scams in this niche.
Personally, I think it’s a cool idea… but it’s not a long-term solution.
Sure, it’s possible to make a few bucks here and there, but it’s consistent, and it’s not passive.
Making Money as a Video Game Tester is Not Good for The Long-Term
What is passive income? I’m sure that you have heard that term.
But do you really know what it means?
Passive income is anything that brings in income without active work.
I’m not saying that it’s possible to create a passive income flow without hard work!
What I mean is that with passive income, once the system is created, it does not require your immediate attention to generate cash.
You don’t have to be there for it to work.
If you try to create businesses that sticks to a passive income model than you are making a really smart choice for your financial future!
Do the work now. Reap the rewards for the rest of your life.
The internet is the perfect tool for passive income businesses because there are so many different ways that you can make money online that can continue making money for you for years!
One of the best ways is to create a website.
I know! You might think that’s too difficult and complicated…
Well, that’s not true.
Creating a website nowadays is so easy anyone can do it.
In fact, I made a simple email series that anyone can follow to build a site and create the foundation for a profitable future.
Here’s the best part:
The best part is that this email series is completely free and risk free.

Andrew Crooks says
I agree, forget playing video games and instead build your own video game or at least something that will eventually pay you passive income.
I like your ideas and would like to get started. What’s the best way to begin?
I think the best resource for new online entrepreneurs like yourself is the Wealthy Affiliate training program.
Simple lessons, step by step instructions, and great community support.
Thanks for sharing informative blog post here on making money with games. There is a good way to earn much more money I would like to thanks you for your passion and efforts.
I used your recommended program Wealthy Affiliate years ago to great my first online business. Solid program!
Thanks for the feedback Steve, much appreciated.
This seems like a considerably old post, but there are some somewhat recent responses so i’ll post too. See, i’ve been looking for a way to make money, any possible way, desperately. I have a lot of medical problems, but i’m young and my parents basically threw me out into a small country town without a way to get anywhere or the right background to get a job out here, especially with the problems i have. Would this be a decent way to make money for me? Do you have any other legitimate suggestions that might actually help me in the long-term instead of the short term? Or know of any people who can help me for free? I’m young, broke, secluded and injured.
I’m sorry to hear of your situation. There are people who make money playing video games, but this is years of experience playing games like Call of Duty and perfecting your skills till you get people that pay to watch you play.
Any online business is going to take the initial time and some money to get going. So if you don’t have a little bit, that’s going to be an issue. You can certainly learn to put up a review site based on affiliate marketing and do great.
We’ve got a Free Starter Membership to help get you started and you can truly make a free site, post content, learn some of the basics, but it would be a huge challenge to extend your knowlege and business alone.
I run this online business for under $4 dollars per day and it makes full time income, but it took the initial time and hard work. I wrote a post about the most effective and cost efficient way to make money online as well as how long it takes.
Read this post to see if this would be a good method for you. This is the best long term solution to create daily income and long term passive wealth.
Thanks for so informative post. I have tried to make money online playing such games as 777spinslot but sometimes it’s so difficult…I’ll try your idea, thanks.
You’re welcome, happy to help. If you’ve got the desire to work online, building a niche based affiliate website is possibly the best way to go about due to the low cost and risk to start, run, and maintain.
If you can go into this type of project as if you were going to college, you’ll do much better. You want to approach this as a learning process that allows you to start making online income. As you continue to build and learn, you continue to build you income levels. Once you have your business up and running is when you really start making money online.
I recently wrote a post about how long it takes to make money online and I think this will help anyone who’s new to this understand the process better.
I tried making money online by testing video games and it’s not what people think. It’s actually a job and not a lot of fun. The pay’s pretty crappy. I would like to know more about making money online and this wealthy affiliate program.
Thanks for sharing your experience with testing video games. To answer your questions, you can find all the information on Wealthy Affiliate and what it takes to create your own online business right here.
Let me know if you have any follow up questions.

I never realised just how big this industry really was.
Thanks for bringing this to my attention, I know so many people that would jump at the chance to ‘play and earn’.
Thanks for the information.
We’ll see how this game advertisement works out. It’s just an interesting concept if you know gamers or are a gamer.
