Word Star is a new competitive crossword puzzle type of game for the iOS & Android platforms. You actually get to compete for real money in this game against other players; you and the other player about the same amount of money, and whoever wins gets to keep it all. Of course, there are free versions, but most people want the paid version.
It is possible, however, to get bonus cash, and the easiest way to do that is by using promo codes. Promo codes can be entered at any time in order to get bonus cash, which can’t be withdrawn, but can be wagered, and any of the winnings that come from your bonus cash wagers can be withdrawn.
Read on for a list of promo codes, how to use them, and how to find more of them in Word Star!
To get to the code redemption menu, enter your Skillz username and password at startup if you already have one. If you don’t, then finish the tutorial, set up an account with a username and password. Then, go to the shop area.
After you do that, tap on the store. A quick way to get there is to tap on your dollar counter. Once you are there, below the selections of cash options, tap on the button that says promo code.
Once you do that, enter the promo code, click the word “done“, and the code will apply instantly, with the benefits coming as soon as you make your first cash purchase.
In Word Star, promo codes work much differently than they do in most other games. Typically, a promo code for a game will be given out by the developer, as a way of rewarding players or getting new players.
In cases like that, the developers will often post codes to their Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram feeds. Usually players will trade them on Reddit or Discord, or they will post codes that they have seen elsewhere, have used, and that they want to share.
Occasionally you will see these codes posted in the review section of the App Store and Google Play stores, under the download area for the game. This is especially true for games that are very popular, because the more popular a game is, the more reviews that it’s going to have.
Players may also put codes on YouTube and Twitch as a cross promotion between the developers and the streamer or content creator who runs the channel. Developers often use the channel’s subscribers as a way to boost downloads for a game.
Reddit is another popular place that players put codes, in the Subreddit for the game. This is because the largest discussion forum for any particular game is the Subreddit for said game, so this is going to be where all of the player discussion (or at least most of it) takes place, making it a likely source for promo codes.
These codes work quite a bit differently in Word Star, though. For one thing, they actually involve real-life money. Because of this, they apply when you make a purchase using real money, not right away.
A promo code in this game is actually more like an invite code. Every player has their own promo code that they can then give to other players. When a player uses that promo code, they get free money with their next purchase.
Your best sources at finding promo codes that other players have given out are going to be social media and YouTube, as well as other common sources of interaction such as TikTok. Twitch is another useful and popular source of content for this game and similar games, because players love to watch other players earn real-life money, just to see if there is a possibility that they themselves can do it.
To find your promo code to invite other players with (but that you cannot use by yourself), go to the menu and tap on the “redeem free cash“ button. Tap one of the share links.
In the URL, there will be a five digit code. That five digit code is the promo code. If you want to share it with other players, copy it and post it in Reddit, in our comment section, or wherever you want to.
The great thing about this system of promo codes is that these codes will literally never expire, just as long as you bind your account. If you play the game using a guest account, and then you delete the game without binding your account, then the promo code will go away, and the next time you download this or any other Skillz game, you will be assigned a new promo code.
