Welcome to my Bling Block app review.
Bling Block is the latest block-based game to come out of the app store, claiming to give out a variety of rewards.
Now I am used to testing games that offer one type of reward whether that be a gift card for Amazon or cash.
However, this game is gathering a lot of interest due to the fact that it looks like you can redeem a wide range of rewards.
As not only can you supposedly get in-app currency for your favorite games that you play but also PayPal money too.
This is all their word and what they say, through both in the game and the adverts, however, is any of it true, and will they give this to you if you play Bling Block.

What Is Bling Block App?
Bling Block is a block-based game similar to Tetris where you are given different sized blocks and need to get rid of them by creating lines.
There are various games just like this one including Block Fun, and while the game is fun to play most of the games that are similar to this that I have tried have not shown any sign of paying.
This game is brought to you by Jump Line Studio and has amassed over 50 thousand installs. However, there is no date of launch or info on the company as it was released in an early access mode.
How Does Bling Block Work?
How the Bling Block works is you complete lines with shapes of blocks, in order to earn virtual currency that can hopefully be exchanged for rewards.
This is how the game is advertised and what is explained through the tutorial when you first open the game.
Here is a screenshot of the game below:
As you can see you have a grid with space to put different block pieces. So the idea is therefore quite simple, you need to make a line by fitting these in.
When you make a line, it disappears, and coming your way you will get either gems or cash.
How To Make Money With Bling Block?
Now gems and cash is the two main currencies within the game, each of which carries a different weight.
Gems are the easiest to get hold of, as you are given these after most line completions.
Whereas the more sought-after cash is a little bit harder to attain, as its not given to you at the same frequency as gems.
Cash is the most desired has it is the only way to redeem a cash payout through PayPal. While with the gems you can only redeem in in-app purchases for various games.
Now what I found interesting about these currencies, is how the developer has scripted the game to give them out.
One thing I haven’t seen in a while is a game that limits the amount you make, as most developers would rather let you earn as much as you want for example $1000, $2000.
Rather than stop you from reaching a threshold, by cutting of the supply of money when you reach a certain point.
However, what I found with this game, is that the more you play the less rewarding it is.
They don’t give out cash as often and when you reach a certain point with the gems you start to experience diminishing rewards.
This doesn’t mean you won’t be able to reach any minimum thresholds in place because you will.
Its just that the developer wants to keep you around longer, and slow down the pace of your earnings to keep you playing and watching videos.
Which in turn helps them make more revenue.
So if you have come across Bling Block for a quick cash fix, you will likely not find that here, as it takes hours to reach any of the thresholds in place.
How Do They Pay?
Now talking of thresholds, you have different ones in place depending on the currency you are targeting with Bling Block.
The currency with the most rewards is the gems because they have all these games of the app store that they apparently give you in-app credit for.
To get these you must exchange your gems for them when you have reached the set amount, with the minimum being 10000.
As for the games in which it looks like they support you have some widely popular ones to choose from as you have Homescapes, Lords Mobile, Pokemon Go, and many more.
In order to redeem these, you need to put in your player ID when requesting them.
Onto the second and only other way to get paid, is the cash, which is the green notes on the top left of the screen in-game.
Clicking on these you are taken to a page where you can convert your in-game cash to PayPal currency.
Many cash-themed games nowadays are making a mockery of their users and Bling Block is a fine example of one that is currently doing that.
As I was saying earlier its been a while since I have come across a game that gives diminishing rewards, where it, therefore, stops users from even reaching the amount to get paid.
Bling Block though is doing exactly that with its 50 thousand installs, by giving them virtual money in-game, that they can’t actually cash out, due to scripts put in place to stop doing so.
They may earn a good amount soon after downloading, however, its a case of the more you play the less you get, and that is where it becomes a total waste of time.
I have come across many games just like this one, of which are just the worst because as your playing you want to stop playing, but at the same time you know that you are close to getting to the threshold so you keep going.
Its a horrible situation to be in and from my experience, I have learned its simply best to cut your losses if you have put time into it already and look elsewhere.
Now if you don’t know where else to look for paying apps and games, then don’t worry, I had this issue a while ago when I was on the search for legitimate apps.
This is why I have gone ahead and comprised a list of the best paying apps, that if you use them you will be able to earn money not only by playing games but also by completing various activities.
