Will Word Relax App really pay you for playing a word game?
I’ve looked into all sorts of Apps that claim to help you make money for downloading apps, doing free scratchcards, paid surveys, paid offers and much more….
But Apps that pay to you to play games specifically is more of a new on for me.
Recently I’ve seen an upsurge in Apps that claim to pay you for playing simple word games and one of those is called Word Relax.

How Does Word Relax Work?
Simply download the App for free in Google Play and you can get started immediately.
You simply need to find words from a selection of five letters, that will fit in the word grid on your screen.
Words may be from two letters, to five letters long.
You can earn coins for completing different levels and also some cash along the way.
When, (or if) you reach $20, you can withdraw cash via PayPal, or exchange the money for an Amazon giftcard.
There are many, MANY levels and some of the words get more complex as you go.
If you get stuck, you can use coins you accumulate to pay for cheats, will I will explain more further down.
How Can Word Relax Pay You?
You will frequently need to watch Ads, in order to get more coins, or more to simply continue playing on to the same level.
Advertisers will pay Word Relax every time an Ad is viewed and the idea is, they will share some of their profits with you.
This is how you are able to play this game for free and, (theoretically) make a small amount of money.

How Much Can You Make?
It’s not really about how much you can make, as to whether you can ever cash out.
Typically with this sort of App, (where free money is involved) they start out by giving you some money, (but not enough that you can withdraw).
Eventually they will give you less and less, until it seems impossible that you will ever reach the cashout amount.
For example; after the very first level of this game, it said I’d won $5 already.
Then it went up again to $9, very quickly. They obviously want you to keep going with this.
After that…. a big drop, I got $1.50.
Next I got $1. Next I got $.50 …. So, you see, it goes down.
Not only does it go down, but the period of time that passes before you get any reward at all, gets longer over time.
You also have to watch more Ads as time goes on. At first, I watched hardly any Ads, but as I progressed I needed to watch more.
Cash Vs Coins… What’s The Difference?
You get cash via the game but that just stays in one place and you don’t need to use that.
You also have coins that you collect and you can use these coins to skip viewing Ads, if you want), or to get things like additional clues or extra time in the game.
you can also get more coins, by watching more Ads.
In addition, there is a “task list,” where you can get more coins for completing certain tasks.
For example, for using to hint cheats, you get 50 additional coins – or for sharing on social media, you get 50 additional coins, (see below image!).
Cheats And Bonuses On Word Relax:
If you get completely stuck, there are some tricks you can buy – but they will cost you money in coins.
Here are some of the cheats:
- Dartboard icon – you tap the tile to reveal latter, (cost: 200 coins).
- Magic wand icon – tap this to reveal the entire word, (cost: 300 coins).
- Hint – will give you a handy hint, (cost: 50 coins).
Obviously, it’s better to just save your coins and not have to use these cheats or hints.
I used the cheats just to see what they were about and what they did – but I didn’t actually need them up until this point in the game because, they just aren’t that hard to figure out.
So, you can probably get by without using them!
Is This Game Misleading?
Having watched a lot of Ads for games like this now, I’m not surprising that people feel they’re misleading.
The Ads often show people winning lots of money – when that’s really far from the truth.
A majority of people just never reach the cashout threshold with these games and I constantly get messages from people who have spent many months playing a game and can’t seem to manage.
These games are a bit different than what I normally look at though – I will keep going and see what happens.
How Much I Made….
By the time I gave up, (for now) I made $12.91. But the rate I was getting money was starting to very seriously slow down now.
I suspected it would soon go down much further very quickly.
All being said, I did still quite enjoy the game. The title of, “word Relllaaxxxx…” is pretty accurate, I found it quite relaxing.
What Do Other People Say?
This App currently has 4.6 stars on Google, with over 17k reviews and over 100,000 installs.
One reviewer said not to put any random non-existent words in the game, as they believe they make less money if they do.
Although, I’m very dubious as to whether this would have any impact at all.
As far as the money goes, people say it pays out initially an then it gradually disappears.
Many people that play this game just enjoy it for what it is. IF they happen to actually make money from it then that’s fine – but if not, it’s still a free game they enjoy.
Is Words Relax Legit?
I’d like to hear from some people who have actually won.
It’s one thing to take an incredibly long time, but EVENTUALLY get to the cash out threshold – and quite another for it to be impossible.
Have you made it to the $20? Please let me know.
Aside from that, i’ts quite a fun game and it’s fun to play – even without the promise of free money!
Beyond Freebies & Apps…. Want To Make More?
I became really interested in the idea of online business in 2015 and set about to make it my goal to at least build up a part-time income online.
Which thankfully I did achieve within the first year, but it took a lot longer to generate something more substantial.
I tried some of these ideas – some worked better than others.
But the one thing I’ve profited from more than anything to date, is having my own website.
How do you profit from a website? Well…. one way is from Ads when you have enough daily visitors.
Another is affiliate marketing, where you can recommend products & services and earn a commission for doing so.
Other ways still may include, creating your own products and courses, email marketing and more.
Having your own website means having your own piece of internet property, which no one can take away – & that means a lot!

I’m on level 6351 and been on $19.99 for 500+ levels, I play for the fun of the game so don’t play expecting a payout , it won’t happen, tried the contact us and surprise surprise no reply !
If you just want to play the game turn your WiFi/4G off while playing then you don’t get the ads , no point watching ads for something that will not pay out !
I agree Dave – yes people say the amount you get just reduces more and more the higher you get :/
Same. I’m on level 6429 at $19.99. Been playing for three and a half days with $19.99. Will not let me get to $20 to cash out. No reply when I tried to contact either.
Sadie Ackley says
I am at level 147 and I have $48.20 and yes I get like 11 cents per 10 levels now but I can cash out at $50 and I am hoping that I will be able to get there! I am lowering my expectations because I think that the money will eventually go down to one cent but I only have to get to around level 300 and I will win unless it stops giving me money or it keeps on changing the amount of levels I have to go through to get any money.
Yes Sadie, I think you’re probably right unfortunately – let me know if you have any luck.
Jimette Raymond says
No you won’t. The closer I get to $50.00 the longer between payouts and my last pay off for playing 30 levels was .02-2 cents really. It’s a rip off if you’re playing for money
Marie Martin says
I have reached the $20.00 but it will not let me cash out. It gives me some nonsense that says (Cashout failed. You are not satisfied with the cashout requirement). I have received money from other games, but, I feel on this one I have been scammed. If you know how I can get the money please let me know. I have tried to contact them but no answer.
Same problem here. I got to 23.00 and got the same message! I’m not playing anymore but would like to get my 23.00!
Christal D Carlin says
I am on level 2274 and at $49.72, needing $50 to cash out. The amounts get drastically lower the further you go. Currently I need 128 puzzles to earn 1 cent. Now I can not get the game to load.
This is a fake. Once you reach $20.00 the game will shut down a never pay out so pleased do not download
I started playing this game 2 days ago and since i have no life ive probably played anout 10 hrs my game says i need $100 to cash out on paypal and if you know alot of words (easy ones) it was actually easy for me to get to $96 last nite and only on level 176! Its easy but as soon as i hit $96 i now have to do around 20 or so puzzles to get a nickle so its taking me as long to get from $96 to $9821 as it did to get from $1 to $96. I did start playing to see if i could geta quick payout but the game is pretty entertaining. I’ll let you know if i do ever get the last$1.20 for my payout. And i havent neen using any hints and none of my coins. Just keep watching the same 6 ads to earn more bolts to play more levels.
Thanks chris – let us know how you get on.
Playing RELAX WITH WORDS and was hoping you could change the blue back ground. It is very difficult to see if you have poor eyesight. It is blue on blue. Enjoy the game but might have to find another.
Yes that must be a bit annoying – let me know if you find another that you enjoy!
Scott Sears says
I have played Word Relax for months now and have reached level 9100, and have $49.93. It now takes 750 levels to make 1 cent.
If that is bad enough, now I cannot go past level 9100. I can complete the words but a new level will not start. It continues to stay on level 9100 with the same words.
If this is not a glitch and this is really what the game format is, THIS IS COMPLETELY FRAUDULENT. I CANNOT BELIEVE I SPENT SO MUCH TO TO BE SCAMMED LIKE THIS. THE GAME IS COMPETE SCAM
I posted a comment yesterday on my experience playing ‘Word Relex”. I was honest on how the game ended up being a scam if you are looking to actually cash out. It is impossible to cash out as the game just stops giving you new levels at some point.
My point was when I hit level 9100. Now I get no new levels. It just keeps going back to the same letters and stays on level 9100. this after playing for a very long time.
Why would you not allow others to see what the end game is with Word Relax. I would have loved to know this before I started playing the game. I would have not wasted my time on it. “And it was a lot of time”.
If someone is ever wanting to cash out on this game, the game simply will not allow them to do so. I am extremely disappointed and was very mislead by the company/game.
Again in terms of cash pay out of any kind, it is a total scam.
Prove me wrong… PLEASE
Thanks for sharing your experience Scott….. This seems to be the common story with this app I’m afraid.
