Here's how to make money playing video games with your phone using 3 different methods.

Let me know what you think, ask me a question, or suggest something I cover in the future in the comments below!

1. Pay-to-Download Apps

There are free apps out there like FeaturePoints, Cash Pirate, and GiftPanda that pay you to download and try apps. Many of these apps are popular games like Clash of Clans, Mobile Strike, etc.

FeaturePoints (Full review here)

With FeaturePoints, you have a ton of choices for cashing out other than PayPal including Bitcoin, gift cards, credits towards games, etc.

They also seem to pay the fastest of any app on this list when you’re ready to cash out. Usually, they pay you within a few hours.

Some other ways to make money from FeaturePoints beside playing games include watching videos, shopping online, referring others, and taking surveys. The minimum you need to cash out is just $1 as well.

For 50 free points, use code E7KRRE.


If you have an Android device and want to make money playing games, give CashPirate a try. You can also make money from referrals (10% of friends’ earnings), surveys, product trials, videos, etc. The minimum you need to cash out is $2.50.

Use code: VGEJHW


If you like CashPirate, you’ll probably like GiftPanda as well. This app is made by the same company and allows you to not only make money from playing games, but also from surveys, referrals (10% extra cashback on friends’ earnings) and shopping online.

2. Bet on One-On-One Matches

With the One Up app for iOS, you can bet against another player in a one-on-one match of video games like Madden, Fifa, NHL, or NBA 2K.

The winner of the match gets all the money except for the 10% fee that One Up takes for providing the platform.

You can use this app for the games mentioned above on the Xbox One and PS4 gaming consoles.

3. Screen Record Mobile Gameplay

Another thing that people do to make money playing video games on their phones is by recording gameplay videos and making a YouTube channel.

Here's an example of a YouTuber that posted their Clash of Clans gameplay from their Android device:

To record your gameplay, you can use a free app like AZ Screen Recorder for Android or Record It! for iOS.

You can also live stream directly on YouTube with your phone by following these steps on the YouTube app for Android:
