Welcome to my Idle Playground Review!
That was a game that I came across through an ad.
In this advert, there was a message saying congratulations you have earned $1,250 by playing Idle Playground.
Not to me, of course, but to the person playing the game in the advert.
They were getting notifications that they were receiving money through PayPal, which, as you will see later, looked really fake.
One thing I have learned is that with these apps, they like to push the boundaries.
So when most apps or legit ones anyway pay you a few dollars for using their app, some apps will say you can make thousands.
There is no doubt that this is a lie; however, while you will never make that amount, there is a chance that some might still pay even if its a little.
You won’t get thousands, but if someone can make a few dollars or so it using an app like this one, it might be worth investing some time into it.
Within this review, I will be taking you through every aspect you need to know about Idle Playground.
Since the game is new, there are many users skeptical, and this included me, so if you want to find out what’s actually going on here, then you are in the right place.

What Is Idle Playground?
Idle Playground is a sports game that supposedly offers a way for users to win big rewards.
How big these rewards are, you will find out in due course.
Now in the description, it states ‘experience the life of an athlete.’
And while yes, it is athletic themed with you adding in sprinters to run around a track.
As the name of the game states, you will be mostly idle.
Idle games are hit and miss with me, as some are either tedious or fun to play; it mostly depends on how much effort the developers put into the game.
For instance, 2048 Ball Merge, a game I reviewed a few days, is a slow game but enjoyable, but on the other hand, games like Merge Number Plus and even Puppy Town for me anyway were quite dull.
With this game, however, it was hard to ignore them as despite launching back in October 2019, they have been promoted a lot recently.
Compared to games like Plinko Master and Word Picnic, they don’t quite have a huge amount of installs, but with 100k installs and counting, I expect this one to get more popular.
Especially with there deceiving adverts of making so much money.
How Does The Idle Playground Game Work?
When you launch the game, you will see a standard athletic track.
You will see one athlete running round in circles.
Once they get to the finishing line, you will earn a few points.
What these points they can be used to do the following things;
- Buy more athletes
- Increase the speed
- Increase the number of coins per athlete.
- Increase the number of fans in the stadium
Now, as you may be gathering, this is a game where you sit back and upgrade.
The more you upgrade, the more you earn as you will have many athletes going around, generating more cash.
However, with that said, you can only upgrade to level 100 maximum.
Another aspect to talk about is as you complete levels; you can experience other sports instead.
From the list below, you have skating, bicycle, skiing, boating, and more.
Just like athletics, you will have them going round in a grid just in the chosen sport.
So if you unlock skating, they will be skating on ice in circles instead of running on an athletics track.
Just like in the image below.
Each one is harder as the cost to upgrade increases faster.
Making Money With Idle Playground
As you start making more coins, you will see the ability to level up in the top right.
Clicking on this will give you a cash bonus plus move you to the next level.
As you can see from the screenshot for moving up from level 1 to 2, I received $2.
But to continue in the same theme as apps, I reviewed such as Fish Blast and Lucky Plinko, as you complete more of the game, it becomes progressively harder to earn.
For instance, while I earned $2 for the second level, I only got around $1 for the 3rd level.
However, the good news is that I did continue to play until level 25, and managed to accumulate $25, so a payout may be on the cards.
The inevitable does seem to be that at some point, I will get cents.
Instead of getting between $0.50 and $2 for each level, I complete.
How To Withdraw Your Cash?
To withdraw your earnings, you must first get to $100.
That can be done only by leveling up in-game.
Leveling up is relatively easy as long as you keep upgrading.
However, what isn’t easy is cashing out as the amount of money does dropdown.
If you do make it to the point where you can request a payout, you can choose between an Amazon Gift Card or PayPal.
What I Am A Fan Off
1. Fun At The Start
Not being a fan of idle games, I fully expected this game to be dull.
But from playing the game for an hour, I enjoyed it somewhat.
That is because while it is rewarding to fill out the stadium with fans and the track with athletes, it becomes tedious waiting for upgrades.
As the more you play, the more costly one upgrade becomes.
The first sport of athletics is easy; however, as you start to go through them, it gets longer quickly.
Once I moved to skating, I got bored as if I had already completed the game.
That was because I had fully maxed out all the upgrades on the athletics.
But overall, as far as a merging game goes, this one isn’t too bad.
2. Not Overloaded With Ads
What I expected was to be shown an ad at every turn, click, and movement.
However, I was surprised to see that watching ads isn’t forced.
As I played the game, I, of course, got offered double coins and rewards for watching videos.
But at no point, while playing, did I have to sit through a 30-second ad.
If you have read any of my other app reviews, you will know how much I despise the use ads.
The ads are fine, but most companies overdo it, Big Time Cash App and Knife Dash are prime examples of apps that overkill it to the point where you can’t play the game.
What I Am Not A Fan Off
1. Start To Get Cents Instead
A familiar theme is the more money you generate at the start, the harder it gets.
From reading this Idle Playground review, you will know I made $25 with ease.
If I continued to play, I would probably continue to earn more passive income within the app.
However, this does slow down dramatically.
Instead of getting $1 for every level, you complete, which is fair, like users are reporting you to get to a stage where your lucky to get $0.08.
Just like how this person stated in her very recent review of the app.
To be fair to them, they did reply to this user’s complaint.
But the fact this game’s payout issues is the same as 100’s of other apps out there tells me that this isn’t unique to Idle Playground.
They are just adopting the same system and using the same secrets as other free cash games.
2. Don’t Fulfill There Promises
It’s such a tricky one.
We know that these companies are probably making lots of money through ads.
However, whether they can fund to give $100 to each member is another matter.
As these apps aren’t growing slowly there doing so at a rapid pace.
To the point where if one launched tomorrow, it wouldn’t be out of the realms to get 1 million installs on that same day.
That’s just because there is crazy hype for these kinds of games and opportunities that give ‘free’ money.
Now referring back to the advert that is what brought me to Idle Playground, it shows someone making a grand.
Yes, you read that, $1000+ just by playing a game.
Here is the proof if you haven’t seen it.
However, the problem with this advertising as it’s not like they’re saying you could win this.
They’re saying you will earn this amount of money.
That is as much false advertising as you will ever see.
What is a fun game is let down by the fact that the false promises of vast sums of money.
You may get away with saying that you can make $50 or maybe $100, but $1,200 is so over the mark that it’s laughable.
Since I started using cash apps many years ago in my early teens, I don’t think I have even made four figures in that period.
Let alone in a few days using just one app.
Ultimately this is a wicked lie to encourage you to install the game and play it.
I am going to bring this Idle Playground review to an end by saying they don’t payout.
That is until I find a review that says otherwise, which I am yet to come across.
While you won’t make $1,200 in a day, you can still make extra cash using my recommended income sites.
They aren’t a massive earner. But like I say, they will at least help you earn legitimately.
