Welcome to my Emoji Riddler app review.
When you think of emojis, your first thought will likely be towards the ones you use to send to others in a message.
But from what I have found in a recent game, I’ve come across that you can apparently win thousands of dollars with these.
This game I have come across is called Emoji Riddler and says you can win money by completing puzzles involving emojis.
However, just matching symbols and completing puzzles is unlikely ever going to get you the kinds of money this company claims you can get.
So if you want to know if any of this true or if just playing this game will waste your time, then do read until the end.
Emoji Riddler Review Summary

- My Worth It Rating: 3/5
What Is Emoji Riddler?
Emoji Riddler is a game where you match related emojis to each other. It’s a puzzle game made by developer Benni Harel and going off the videos promoting the game, and they are showing people how you can win small amounts really easily.
In these adverts, I have seen clips like below where people flex how much money they have made from the game.
But what is key to know and if you haven’t seen any ads for other apps is both of those images I screenshotted have been used to promote other games.
But being based around emojis, it’s something different I am surprised to have not come across earlier.
How Does Emoji Riddles Work?
Emoji Riddlers is a game where you are given several emojis, and from them, you have to match those linked to each other.
With the first level, which is pictured above, you have two rows of three emojis.
So just like it’s instructing me to do for the first one, I would make a line from the rainy clouds to the umbrella.
Each level is themed around different emojis, and the first set of levels is straightforward to work through.
If you get stuck, there is a hint button on the right-hand corner, which will help you out.
Now once you have done all the required matches, you will get a level win bonus.
This is within the region of $10 to start with. However, after 5 or so levels, this amount does slowly drop.
But that does mean that within 5 minutes, you can easily have a balance of $50, which does make you feel as if you have earned a lot already.
Of course, this is nice in itself, but it will likely have no meaning for games like Emoji Riddles never payout.
Claw Machine Mini-Game
There is also a mini-game that you can play in addition to the main levels. This is a claw machine where you can win prizes from it.
When you successfully guide the claw to picking up an emoji and dropping it in the prize section, you will win a cash bonus.
This is essentially another way for Emoji Riddler to show their users ads in return for prize money, as you must watch an ad for every attempt.
Emoji Riddler Boxes
The last aspect to talk about with the game is the Emoji Riddler boxes that you will notice while doing the levels.
In the middle of a level, you will notice at random points boxes moving across the screen.
How Do They Pay?
The minimum threshold for Emoji Riddler is $300, which is a new high for a required amount just to get paid.
Now, if they do turn out to pay people, then you can cash out for PayPal.
However, this app is making users make much more than I have seen on other apps.
Commonly you will find that it’s about $100 to $200 for most apps, and even though they never pay anyway, this one is much higher.
Do They Reward Their Users?
There is a reason why these games push the boundaries with the thresholds as they want to see how much they can get away with.
When I first started playing this game, I was able to rack up $50 within 30 minutes suspiciously, kind of like what was shown in the Emoji Riddler advert as it was that easy.
However, you are given so much early on because they have made the threshold so high.
if, for example, you needed $50 to get paid, you wouldn’t be getting $10 a level, has not only would people reach the amount within a matter of levels, but it would just be too easy.
It’s smart thinking from these companies, as they want to keep you playing these types of puzzle games as long as possible.
Hence why a user like myself could get $10 a level and then, after a while, reaches a point where you are getting $1 a level instead.
I say this because I want to warn you that you will be so easily disappointed if you go into these games with the expectation of winning money.
As these games are not designed to help their users win.
Emoji Riddler, despite being another game that says you can earn money, brings a cool game to the table as many people enjoy using emojis to text with.
You start with some great money, which the developers do a good job of making it seem as if it’s yours, but really there is no worth to it since no one will see even a dollar of it.
I have seen the same theme happen too many times, and it’s likely to be the case with this game as I highly doubt the developers can afford to give out three hundred dollars to every user who plays their game.
Not only that but if you look in the store and on the app, you will see no sign of terms of conditions, which unfortunately means they don’t actually have to payout.
I know it’s frustrating, especially for those who have put time into the game; however, the most likely outcome is that no one gets paid.
I do hope this Emoji Riddler app review helped you out, and if you have any comments you would like to leave, feel free to do so in the section below this post 🙂
