Welcome to my Bounty Puzzle Review.
Its one of a range of puzzle games that I have been introduced to of late, and this one is a game I have just got around to checking out more.
What drove me towards this game was its bold claims.
We all know that most apps either pay peanuts or hardly pay at all.
But from seeing some advertising from Bounty Puzzle, I learned that you could make easy dollars from doing puzzles.
It seemed effortless from the advert, so what better way to find out then to download the game and do some puzzles for me.
What I found was not surprising, so make sure you read this Bounty Puzzle review to its summit, so you know exactly what’s going on here.

What Is Bounty Puzzle?
Bounty Puzzle is a game that revolves around a user fitting different cloured shapes into a grid.
Now from the advert that I was presented, I was shown this screenshot.
A user was attempting to put in different pieces and fill in all the gaps.
Along the way, this person was racking up a dollar for each piece he put in.
Now just from using my common sense, I knew it was off as if you are going to get paid.
You aren’t going to be rewarded for putting pieces in but more for completing the whole level.
But as you can see by that image, he racked up just under $5, which for a few minutes of your time isn’t bad.
Now while I am only just getting round to this Bounty Puzzle review now, its a game that has been out for some time.
It was launched on Christmas Day in 2019 and over that time has over 1 million downloads.
What Are People Saying About Bounty Puzzle?
What shocked me from the get-go is the relatively low score Bounty Puzzle has.
You see, with these games, they often have misleading scores, which means it becomes common for them to have nearly perfect ratings.
But instead of having at least four stars, this one is currently on 3.8.
A lot of this is due to the astounding amount of 1-star reviews that have been left.
The reason why this is so uncommon to have bad reviews is that while most users don’t get with the game, they tend to leave good ratings.
This leaves you with a game where you have no clue of how good they are since the reviews are so misleading.
But from scrolling through the many feedback left on Bounty Puzzle, I came across these two users.
The first user stated this:
This was followed by a second user leaving this comment.
Now that you have some idea of the reviews left by users let’s have a look at how the game works.
How Does Bounty Puzzle Work?
From installing Bounty Puzzle to getting into your first puzzle, it is a very short process.
Before you get into the puzzle, you will be shown a tree that goes upwards.
This shows you the many levels you will have to go through, which does set up a challenge for you.
For you to move on to one level, you must complete the previous one first.
Now for the first level, it was all pretty straightforward, just as you would expect it to be.
I was given three pieces and needed to allocate them all in the space so that they fitted.
I am pretty confident anybody could do this, but on the other hand, it is obvious it will start to get harder over time.
My reward for completing this level was $0.16, as you can in the image below.
Nothing to boast about, but considering the difficulty of the level, I will take it.
Now before I got onto the next level, I was shown this.
I get a bonus of $0.80 for completing the next 20 levels, which offers an incentive.
But as with all the games I have tried in the past, I wasn’t confident that I would get any cent for my efforts.
Now, as you go through the levels, you will get a mixture of cents, tokens, and coins.
Three currencies can be used for different things within the app.
Tokens and cents can all be used towards payouts, while coins help you complete levels.
How To Make Money With Bounty Puzzle?
Just from playing the game, you will pick up cash, whether that is from completing the levels or from bonuses.
But along with just playing the game, there are additional ways to earn, and that is through scratchers in the Lucky Day tab.
As you see by the image below, the top prize is what you can get.
And if you match them, you get whatever is on offer.
There does seem to be nice cash prizes, but whether they are winnable, I am not sure.
From doing a few of these, I found two of the same but was never expecting to get all three.
Maybe it is all luck, who knows with these apps.
How Do They Pay?
The two payout options consist of PayPal and Amazon gift cards.
But both need different currencies to be redeemed.
PayPal requires you to have earned at least £10 or £20 cash.
A £2 Amazon gift card requires 6.5 million tokens in total.
Depending on your country, you may be offered different payouts at other prices.
In the redemption notes that are found in the payout section, it states that it can take up to 7 days for it to go through.
However, based on the feedback I read earlier, this doesn’t sound guaranteed.
What You Need To Know About
1. Random Ads
As you play, the game Bounty Puzzle puts in front of you ads randomly.
Just by playing you will encounter them when you least expect them.
Which is something I found quite annoying, especially since you are shown one for almost everything you click on.
Now ads will be present in games like this one, its how the developers make money.
However, if they could reduce the frequency of them, it would make the game more playable.
2. Don’t Payout
One of the recurrent complaints was users not getting paid.
To my surprise, there are plenty of people making it to $10.
However, these users of the game are being shown error messages saying that it isn’t possible for them to cash out.
A lot of them are leaving feedback that the game is ‘cheating’ them, and I would say they have a case.
If I was promised a payout once I had reached a certain amount, I would expect to be paid.
But what is the case too much of the time, is none of them pay you, even if you follow the rules.
If you like jigsaw puzzles, this game could be for you; Bounty Puzzle provides a challenge for there users by giving them jigsaws that go up in difficulty as you move up the levels.
The only reason why I would recommend this game is if you just want to play the game, there isn’t too much wrong with it, and as I said, it is enjoyable.
But the aspect of people not getting paid and the abundance of 1-star reviews that were all of a similar theme did worry me.
It does look like hardly anyone is getting rewarded for there time, and considering how easy Bounty Puzzle made it look in their ad, it shows there true colors.
In an ideal world, these apps would make promote their games in a way that is realistic instead of making the claims they did.
Not only do they go over the top, but no one gets paid.
I do hope you got all the answers you wanted in this Bounty Puzzle review.
