I’m growing tired of these bloody bad apps that continue to promise free money for playing merging games, however, someone has to expose them for what they really are.
If you’re an avid app user, then you’re no doubt familiar with apps claiming to give you free money.
Now the legit ones are few and far between, while the scams are everywhere.
I have exposed many in the last couple of years, I have literally lost count how many scammy apps are out there.
Needless to say, at least 90% of them don’t pay out.
This is what I’m here for, to research these apps to see if they actually work.
Then give my final opinion, which is exactly what I’m going to do in this Fishtopia review.
First and Foremost, What is Fishtopia?
Fishtopia is an app on the Playstore that claims you can earn free money for merging fish.
It currently has an astounding 100k downloads, and unfortunately since it’s still in early access, no one can provide any reviews.
Therefore no one can say whether they’re getting paid with Fishtopia or not.
This is a red flag as it shows that the owners want to keep their agenda hidden, which is, well, to not pay their members.
How to Play Fishtopia
Fishtopia is all about merging fish to create bigger and better fish.
When you merge one fish with another, you will create a newer fish with a higher level.
A random treasure box will open with each merge that can be opened for more rewards.
You will also generate a certain amount of coins per second playing the game.
The higher your level, the more coins you can generate per second. It also has an offline mode feature, meaning you can earn coins on autopilot when offline.
With each new milestone you will earn around $1 – $10.
To credit these into your account you will need to click “claim” along with a stream of requirements.
And of course requirements include watching loads of ads, making the developers more and more money.
How Does the Developers Make Money?
The developers make money from people watching ads.
That’s how the majority of these apps get paid, unless they have in-app purchases.
Otherwise their sole revenue is from advertising, which is usually never enough to pay to its members.
Especially when they claim to pay hundreds of dollars for a couple hours of gameplay.
This is a huge red flag because it’s just not possible, not when they only earn a few bucks per 1000 ad views.
How Much Do You Need to Withdraw?
They claim that you can withdraw your cash when you hit the minimum withdrawal amount of $300.
If you’ve read any of my other reviews, you’d know that any high minimum payout is a huge red flag.
It means they’re hoping most people quit before they can get their money.
And if they don’t, they slow down earnings drastically as they get closer and closer.
For those that do reach minimum payout, they will give you a cash out option.
From here all you need to do is provide your PayPal email address and wait for the money to go into your account.
The Biggest Red Flag of All
99% of the time they will expose their real intentions because they’re legally obligated to tell the truth, or face legal trouble.
Therefore there will be a clause in the terms and conditions that says earnings are not guaranteed, virtual money only, no guarantees of earning real money, or something along those lines.
After taking a look at their end-user license agreement (EULA), it didn’t take long to dig up the truth.
Basically what they’re saying is that they have complete rights to eliminate any money in your account as they see fit, even if you reach the minimum payout of $300.
The bottom highlight means you have no right to receive the currency shown in your account.
Again, flat-out saying that they have no intention of paying you and you can’t do anything about it because you agreed to this when you hit that “play” button.
Is Fishtopia Legit?
After reading this review I hope I have opened your eyes to what these scumbags are up to.
These people have no morals and will get away with it as long as they’re allowed to.
They are literally everywhere on the Playstore, and can completely get away with it as long as they have their ducks in a row.
Meaning, as long as they’re complying with the law in their terms of service.
It’s wrong that they can completely lie and waste peoples time like this, but now you’ve gone through this review, you can avoid these scams in the future.
So to answer the question whether Fishtopia is legit or not, that would have to be a big fat no.
It’s 100% a scam and should be avoided like the plague.
What Can You Do Instead?
There are so many opportunities in 2022, more so than ever before.
Gone are the days of working a regular 9 – 5 job and doing well.
As we’ve found out in the last couple of years, anything can happen and you can’t rely on anyone for your income.
I have personally found blogging to be the only thing that worked for me since 2016, continues to work in 2022, and beyond.
Because digital content is the future, whether it be in the form of writing, video, pictures, etc.
There will always be a market for your niche, and Google isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
So what do I do?
I create blogs just like this one for a living.
However, you don’t need many blogs, you only need one big blog to make a full-time income.
This step-by-step training program taught me how to create a blog from scratch, and now I’m living my dream of working form home.
And I hope you can achieve the same 🙂
