Word Relax is a popular new word game for the iOS and Android platforms that combines the classic crossword gameplay with the chance to actually win money that can be cashed out via check or PayPal. You play through the main mode (and other various modes), collect money, and then cash out when you hit the $20 mark.
Read on for some tips on how to win real-life money in Word Relax!
As you play through from level to level, you’ll slowly rack up money for each level that you beat. It doesn’t matter how long it takes you to finish or how many mistakes you made; you still collect the money.
You have a lot of different aids that you can use to make it easier if you are having trouble figuring out an answer. You can shuffle the board, get a hint with the lightbulb, or use the magic hint in order to fill in multiple letters on the board at once.
Each use of the standard hint (one letter at a time) costs 100 coins. You can watch ad videos for 200 coins apiece, or you can win coins in each stage that you finish. You can earn coins in any stage that you finish, but only the main game gives you dollars and cents.
Being that the main game is the only one that gives you real money, it’s also the only one that costs energy for you to use. When you play a level, it takes one energy, and you can carry a maximum of 20 energy at a time.
Any time that you run out of energy, you can tap the energy counter to watch an ad video in exchange for more energy. Each video that you watch gives you 2 energy, so for that full 20-energy refill, you would have to watch a total of 10 ad videos.
The Daily Challenge and the Quotes Path are two extra level types, and while both are fun, none of them have a chance of earning you real life money. They do earn you coins, as a reward for finishing, though, so you can use them to rack up hints for the main levels.
So play the main levels as much as you can, and use the ad videos to fill them up. If you want to play the daily challenge and quotes path, go for it, but they won’t earn you any money.
Like all games of this type, the money slows down as you get farther and farther into the level. So it will take a long time to get to the payment threshold. If it seems like the game has gotten to the point of it being impossible, you can always delete the app and reinstall it.
Sure, it will be tedious to go back through the levels again, but you also have some chance of winning a huge amount of money right at the beginning, letting you get to the threshold faster.
