I love making money online, and I make money playing games with Ysense, as well as completing surveys and referring others. While it is a small amount of money it is something that I can do in my spare time drinking a cup of coffee, or even better, get my kids to play the games for me.

What Is Ysense?
Ysense is an online platform where you can make money through playing games and completing surveys and offers. You can also earn commission through referring others.

How To Make Money Playing Games On Ysense
The first thing I need to explain is that you will never get rich playing games on Ysense, or any other platform. We’ve all seen the ads online that show people making hundreds of dollars online from playing games for a few minutes. This is never going to happen, you will make very small amounts playing games on any platform and a lot of the platforms you find will be scams and you will never be paid anything.
Ysense is legit, I’ve been with them since 2015 and I make a consistent monthly income of about $100 a month. Keep in mind that this is through completing surveys, playing games, and referrals. About half my Ysense income is referral income and since I have a blog and social media platforms you can’t expect to make the same amount of referral income.
Playing games is my smallest income from Ysense, but it does add up over time and even better I do nothing for it, because I give my phone to my kids to play the games. I make much more from completing surveys on Ysense.
Here’s what you need to do to earn through playing games:
Make Sure You Play The Games In The Right Place
I can’t stress this enough. There are games in two places on Ysense. Games are in the offer section (discover section on the app) and in the Playtime Rewards section on the Ysense app. Make sure you only ever play the games in the Playtime Rewards section on the Ysense app. Playing games in the wrong place will waste your time.
So make sure to download the Ysense app, then click on Discover and then click on Playtime Rewards which is on the top right. There you will find a list of games to download and play.
When you click on a game it will take you to the Playstore to download the game. The first time you do this you will get a notification that will ask for permission to track your activity. I can’t remember exactly what the notification says but it is along those lines. You must give permission, this is how they track your game playing to reward you.
Once you have downloaded a game you can play it and it will reward you for playing.
Pay For Time Vs Pay Per Level
Go for the games that pay per minute and not per level. I’ve found that I do not get paid for all levels plus the pay per level usually has a time limit on it so you need to play those levels within a certain time frame to get paid out. I’ve found that the pay per minute games always pay me out.
Take note that there are only a few games available to download at a time. Once you have downloaded those games more games become available in Playtime Rewards. There have been times that there are only pay per level games available so then I download those games and let them run for a few minutes before uninstalling them. Once I’ve done that new games are available so you can do that until you get pay per minute games.
The More You Play The Longer It Takes To Earn
When you download a game it might pay $0.01, but once you have played for that minute you then have to play for 2 minutes for $0.01 and so on. This means the more that you play the less that you earn for your time.
Some games pay out $0.03 per minute and others more. I’ve had one game that payed out $0.09 per minute. However, most games are $0.01 per minute/ level.
The Games Have A Earning Cap
You have a limit on how much you can earn per game, so keep an eye on this and uninstall the game if you have reached the cap. If you want to see how much you have earned for a game, how long you need to play to earn on the game, and what the earning cap is for a game click on Your Apps in the Playtime Rewards section.
What I do is have a folder on my phone for games that pay and I put all the games I’ve installed in that folder. I showed my kids where the folder is and they know that they can play those games on my phone.
Every now and then I check the Ysense app to see what games have reach their cap and uninstall those and then install a few more so that I’m always earning when my kids play games.
Do You Need To Be Online To Earn Playing Games?
The answer is sometimes. Some of the games require an internet connection to be played, however, some can be played offline. If you play a game while not connected to the internet you will still be rewarded for that play time as soon as you are online again.
