Thanks for taking the time out to check out a Gold Miner Mania app review.
This one is completely honest and is being written by someone who exposes games for what they are.
So trust me, when you read this post on this game, you will be thanking yourself.
The reason why is because what we have here is a game, which claims you can win lots of rewards playing this mining themed game.
However, as you can tell by the introduction to this post, there is so much more to this game, which I would like to share with you.
With so many of these games, they have so many installs but hardly any information on the rewards.
This is why I encourage you to read this post right till the end.
In the end, I will also share with you some paying games I use myself, so make sure to stick around.
Now with that said, let us get right into it!
Gold Miner Mania Review Summary
- Owner: Super Star Gaming Studio
- What Are They?: Mining Game
- My Worth It Rating: 2/5
What Is Gold Miner Mania?
Gold Miner Mania seems to be the new phenomenon on the app store, with the game currently getting a lot of attention for one big reason.
That being the game is claiming users can win not just one iPhone but multiple. Just like shown below.
Now the idea of playing a game and being able to receive one brand new phone is hard to believe.
But when the claim is that you can get multiple phones that are likely to cost thousands in total that is where I start to make my mind up on what kind of game it is.
This is all before you even get a chance to play the actual game, as they say, all this in the number of ads that are surfacing right now just like the one shown above.
Right now the game is being pushed hard, to the point where while playing other games on my phone I saw different versions and scenes made by the developer.
The people behind this game are called Super Star Game Studio. This is the first game they have made, but with it being an instant success I don’t think this will be the last we hear or see of them.
How To Play Gold Miner Mania?
When you press play, you put into the game where you will see a miner with a mining fork, which spins from side to side.
Now to start with you should see a PayPal puzzle piece in the ground, like shown below:
So what you need to do tap on the screen when the fork is pointing in the way of where the item is.
That will allow you to collect it and whatever you win gets added to your current totals.
In the above example, after picking up the puzzle piece the $50 was then added to my virtual cash balance.
After making a few pickups, the game becomes very straightforward and you will be able to quickly wizz through the levels.
Also worth mention is that its not just puzzle pieces you can get
There are also rocks that give you coins and upgrades to your mining fork to be collected.
How Do They Pay?
You’re going to find very early on that Gold Miner Mania want you to feel special.
This is why an opening level of $50 followed by $73 in the next level is given to you.
But if you have a balance of $123 like I did after doing two levels, you are going to want to know if you can cash out.
Well, the answer is you can’t until you reach $200, however, if you manage to you can redeem for PayPal money.
Now to not get your hopes up, it is worth noting there are two likely outcomes here.
Firstly you aren’t even expected to make enough.
I know I have $123, you may have that amount showing and more, but as you play, the developers are far less generous.
Secondly and I will touch upon this more in the next section they don’t actually have to pay you.
When I spoke about the developers at the start you will remember how I said this company has no background with games.
There is also no information on the owners too.
So because of that, it would be foolish to bank on some randomers to pay you tons of money.
What You Need To Know About
1. You Must Read The EULA
Now for most users who play these games and see the adverts, they likely have it in their minds, that they will be getting rich from playing a game.
After all, there are numerous adverts not only displaying $100 notes but also portraying the idea that someone can repeatedly earn iPhones without any strenuous effort.
However what I noticed and I always encourage people to do this when trying out new games is to check all the terms and conditions.
These are so easily dismissed by users, however, when you don’t read them you risk wasting a lot of time.
That is because, in the EULA, it could state that any items cant be withdrawn, but no one would know because it’s not been read.
Now in this case for Gold Miner Mania, there is a EULA where all the terms of the game are present this includes everything to do with the virtual items.
This is relevant to any users who want to earn money with the game, as the currencies are all virtual.
Below you will see a snippet from the terms that basically states that its at their discretion what happens to rewards and any requests you put in.
At the bottom, I have highlighted something important and that is that they are basically under no obligation to pay anyone out.
It’s the unfortunate sad truth of the matter, and when players press the green play button, they are agreeing to all the terms stated.
2. The Weirdest Notifications
It is nice to pick a game and have a break from a busy day at work.
However what isn’t great is weird notifications that are aimed to distract you and pull you back into the game.
Now I know its only business and they want to keep players screen time as high as possible.
But when you get notifications like the one below, it is quite annoying.
So even if you are playing Gold Miner Mania for fun, it may be worth looking into disabling them depending on whether they bother you.
Now I am not going to say that Gold Miner Mania is a scam, that is because they are and it is weird to say legit.
I know it’s a tough one since they are still kind of misleading their users into playing their mining game.
However, the thing is the owners have been very clever which is why they have clearly stated in the terms that they don’t have to pay anyone out.
The idea of these games from the owner’s point of view is to cash in and make money, from those who want to earn it too.
But as you can see there is only one winner that being the developer.
So with everything I have covered in this review including their EULA, that contrary to their advert where everyone is seemingly getting rewarded the reality is you will be extremely lucky to even receive a single dime from them.
If you value your time and only have the intention of playing for money, then I encourage you to check out these other paying games and the 11 best apps. You will fare much better, and won’t be left frustrated like you would playing a game like this one.
I hope this Gold Miner Mania as both given you some answers but also saved you some time.
A few years ago I was in a position where I put my time into a similar game, however, I quickly realised the developers were toying with me.
So I understand what its like to be messed around with games such as the one we have talked about above.
Now if you do have any questions that I haven’t answered already by all means feel free to leave them below 🙂
