have put off doing a Hyper Plinko review.
I’m not sure why, as I have been reminded of it daily, thanks to numerous reviews of the game.
I thought it was about time that checked them out once and for all to see if the claims are valid.
Not only have I tried out Plinko games in the past, but I have also reviewed others by the developers.
So I had an idea what to expect; however, to know for sure, I thought I would download the game and test it out for myself.
That means if your hereafter hearing about them paying out $1200 or if just want to know if they are legit, you are in the right place.
Hyper Plinko Review Summary
- Owner: Shape Keeper
- What Are They?: Plinko Game
- Verdict: Scam
- Recommended: No
What Is Hyper Plinko?
The latest of Shape Keepers games to surface is Hyper Plinko. This is a game where users get money by dropping balls down a table.
Now the concept of dropping balls down a table is not only that of the original Plinko game, of course, but it is also a game that has been done many times before.
However, they have put them two to the side, advertising this one heavily at the moment through various ads.
With all the advertising the developers have been doing, you won’t be surprised to learn that Hyper Plinko already has 1 million installs. That is releasing on the 1st of September.
How Does It Work?
Hyper Plinko works just like the other games I mentioned above.
You have a variety of different blocks. Some are yellow, which gives you coins. The other ones are green, and these give you dollars.
There a few things going on, so I am going to explain all the features now.
Now before I move on, what is recommended within the app is that you log in using your Facebook.
This will ensure that any earnings are backed up and will allow you to cash out, that’s if you can get to the threshold.
When you first start the game, you are given 30 balls, which you will send down the board by tapping on the screen.
Now unlike common versions of the game like you see on TV, most of the pegs will give you some reward just for hitting them.
Whether that be coins or dollars.
Once these balls get to the bottom of the board, there are four rings. If the balls go through any of them, you will get whatever is shown above.
If we take the photo above, for e.g., if one lands in the 2nd to left ring, then you will get 500 coins.
Spin The Slots
At the bottom above the rings, there is a small floating ring.
If a ball passes through, it unlocks the slot at the top, and it will start spinning.
From the spin, you can win various prizes, including fruits, more balls, and even money.
Here is the reward list:
As you can see, to hit big with money, you will have to be very lucky since its an under 1% hit rate.
How To Make Money With Hyper Plinko?
As I alluded to earlier, you have pegs that reward differently on top of the rings at the bottom that also pay.
So every time you send balls down, you should theoretically pick up some money, even if its a little.
If you hit a green block with a dollar on it, you will get a $0.01 for each hit.
Instead, if you hit yellow blocks with stars on them, you will be given a few coins.
Now initially, it is very easy you will pick up dollars without doing too much. This is as long as your watching videos.
For me, I reached a total of $18.18 after just a few days of playing it on and off.
As you can see from the image:
How Do They Pay?
Keeping with predecessor games that I have checked out by Shape Keeper, the same ways of cashing out are present.
Starting with the green dollars, you can convert them into PayPal cash once you have $100.
The conversion is easy as one green dollar equates to $1.
The second option is through coins. These are easy to pick up however require a huge amount of them for them to be worth anything.
You need at the very least 4 million coins for a $1 Amazon voucher.
It is possible to get cash from these, but you must get to 15,000,000 coins for a $3 payout.
Now lastly, you have the fruits, and this is paid out the most with $1000 up for grabs.
However, you must collect 25 kinds of fruits.
It sounds easy; however, I can only imagine some of these aren’t even discoverable.
The advertising of adverts can play a key role in telling you whether the developers are being straight with you or just trying to bait you in.
Now, unfortunately, for too many apps, the adverts they make are misleading.
But ultimately, I have found to be the case that any app that says you can earn a good amount of cash is too good to be true.
This even goes for those who set somewhat reasonable expectations.
Onto Hyper Plinko’s advert and its another one that claims you can win big, and when I say big, I am talking $1200+.
The advert shows a man whos just won a lot of money through playing a game.
Here is the screenshot:
However, while at first, it does look like it was earned playing with Hyper Plinko, I am not so sure.
That is because the exact same reaction was used and edited for another of Shape Keepers games.
Here is the other advert I found:
The legitimacy of the game was already under question, especially with the high amount.
But the fact that they have just copied and pasted the ad essentially shows you how false it is.
I’ve caught out these developers on this occasion but don’t think they are the only ones, as nearly all cash games are the same.
Whether that be the way they’re run, the claims, or even the advert.
What I Am Not A Fan Off
1. Time Consuming
Just trying to test the game for this Hyper Plinko review was a long experience as you are encouraged to watch ads.
I don’t necessarily mean that ads are just thrown in your face, willy nilly.
But it is with the balls since it takes ages for a new set to be available.
You are given only thirty of them. Once you’ve used them, you must wait for 10 minutes.
After that time, you would imagine that you would have a new set of 30, but unfortunately, your only given one.
So unless you have the patience, you will have to watch an advert to get a new set of them that you can send down the board.
To cap you even further, you can only watch a maximum of 30 videos a day.
2. Too Similar To Other Plinko Games
Going into this Hyper Plinko review, I already had an inkling of what to expect.
After all, I have tried and played each of the other games made by this developer, and none of them looked like they paid out.
Even worse is the fact that they all have the same structure to them.
In fact, if you played all four games I mentioned earlier in the post, you would probably notice that you reach certain amounts at the same time.
That is because these games aren’t ones that you win with.
Instead, how much you get is pre-determined.
So for e.g., a spin gives you $5, you were probably meant to get it.
Games like Hyper Plinko will give money to you no problem as in the grand scheme of things; it doesn’t matter.
As they will make sure you don’t actually receive any of the money.
I know its extreme, but if a game had a threshold of $100,000, you could earn $99,999 and not be entitled to a single dollar.
It’s the unfair nature that these free cash games operate in.
3. Majority Won’t Hit $100
Now, this is always a problem with the high cash out games. Not only is it too high to start with, but it also gives games like Hyper Plinko an opportunity to exploit you.
And let me explain what I mean, so at the start, you send these balls down.
You get balls here and there, and before you know it, you have maybe $50 or more.
It probably was easy to get to this point, and already your thinking of cashing out.
However, as you continue to play, you might still pick up a few more dollars but not to the same frequency when you first installed the game.
Now here’s the problem, you and along with many other users have reached $80/$90.
You’re close to cashing out, so because of that, the developers give you fewer opportunities to pick up cash.
Whether that is limiting the green dollars or completely stopping them altogether.
But it’s at this point people start to find making even a single cent impossible.
There is no coincidence to this as its simply to stop you reaching the threshold for a payout.
Interestingly the coins are different; you could eventually get to the millions required.
But with the number of ads you will have to watch to get to that point just for a dollar, your time was better off spent elsewhere.
Hyper Plinko does look fun to play from the advert; however, once you have the game on your phone, it feels like you have downloaded the wrong game.
That is because while you get the buzz of accumulating cent after cent, you are encountered with many ads, of which you are forced to watch.
So even if you just wanted to play for fun, you would likely spend more time watching then tapping the screen.
Now while that would put me off and I’m sure many of you, the aspect that worries me is the fact that its the same as the rest of Shape Keepers games.
This is because, like the previous games done by the maker’s, users are yet again noticing patterns with irregular money from $80-90 onwards.
With the same issue occurring with Hyper Plinko, it’s not looking likely that anyone will get paid from them.
So my advice is to avoid this game if your looking to earn, you will find better ways out there, just to name a few you could start a website or even just fill out some surveys.
Unlike playing games like this one, your time is going into something that will make you money as opposed to these, where you never know if your effort will pay off.
Now I do hope this Hyper Plinko review was the answer to your questions.
If you have any questions, make sure to leave them down below, and I will try my best to get back to you 🙂
