Welcome to my Mining Time app review.
In an ideal world, being paid to simply put your finger on a screen and repeat that action would be great.
It would be the easiest way to make money, and you wouldn’t even need to work for it.
Well, today’s post is about a game that claims to make this possible.
I have seen and heard that users can get rewarded lots of money by mining rocks in Mining Time.
I am a skeptic, especially with games like this, which make it look too easy.
However, if you have spent a little time with this game and just looking to find out if your efforts will go rewarded, this is the post for you.
Mining Time Review Summary

What Is Mining Time?
Mining Time is a game where users mine at a rock to earn money.
It is almost too simple, as users only need to tap on the screen to see their in-game currency shoot up.
Not only that, it’s a concept I have seen recently with Tree For Money and also a little while back with Idle Planning.
The latter of the two has had a lot of bad feedback of late, and the review I wrote on it reflects that as hoards of people have gone to it to have their say.
Plus, to tell their story of not being paid and waiting weeks with no reply.
Why that game is related to this one is because how it works is exactly the same.
Both require you just to make repeated taps on your phone, and aside from that, there isn’t anything else to it.
Mining For Virtual Money
So getting started with Mining Time couldn’t be easier.
Once you load up the game, you will be shown exactly what you see in the advert.
There is a giant rock with a hammer in front of it. Just above it, there is a progress bar.
As you may have figured out, you need to hit this rock with the hammer by tapping with your fingers until the progress bar is complete.
When you destroy your first rock, you get a $5 bonus, which you can collect.
You will see it added next to the coin balance at the top.
This is another currency that can be earned while playing Mining Time, which has rewards associated with it.
Work through a few of these levels, and already you should see somewhat is classed good money coming in.
I must have played for 5 minutes, and as you can see from the image, I had $23.22.
How To Get PayPal Cards On Mining Time?
These PayPal cards are what they claim to pay users via.
You need to press collect after each time you mine a rock, so it’s added to your account.
If you head on over to the redeem section, it says you need a minimum of $200 to cash out.
Copied Ads And A Boring Concept
I have been shown this game a few times over the past month. However, it was only recently last week that I decided to review it finally.
Since the turn of the year, I have set out to check out even more of these so-called money-earning apps, and I have come across a similar number.
From almost identical gameplay on some of them to ads that are being used for advertising the same games.
Now what I want to show you is the advert for Mining Time:
Right above in that advert, it features some guy with a table full of money, basically becoming frustrated because apparently, people aren’t accepting his free money.
That advert you are seeing, and that guy is from an advert for Neon Pop Numbers.
Her is a screenshot from that one:
As you can tell, it’s exactly the same; the only difference is the thumbnail for the app being changed around.
So obviously, what’s going on in these companies are making videos and then just using them for every app.
What’s scary is the fact that the developers come up in the store with different names.
Which makes you think who is really in charge? And is it one person or multiple companies?
But what I’m getting at here is based on that evidence, can you trust and even believe any of these adverts.
One last thing before I move on is that guy says you can get a free $20 bonus just by downloading the game in both of those adverts.
In the last point, as I covered, the thresholds are each at $200, and no one can withdraw until they reach it.
So it’s just another lie these developers make to get you to install their games.
What You Need To Know About
1. Ad Every Other Level
When you smash your first rock, you get a bonus credited without you needing to do anything else.
If you then mine the next rock, this time you need to watch an ad.
So unlike games, where every press you make results in an advertisement you need to watch, in this case, they are shown on every other basis.
But it is something you will want to bear in mind as these videos are pushed to you, and you will need to watch a fair share before getting anywhere near the threshold.
2. Game Has No Objective
People are downloading Mining Time for one reason, and that reason only, to make money.
However, if you are going to make a game for people to earn, they could of at least put some effort into it.
It’s so simple that it’s really boring.
Which is not good because a game is supposed to challenge you.
At the start, it’s fine because you’re new to it.
However, just tapping the screen and mining rocks will ironically just become tiring,
I have reviewed tons of games, and it always seems to be the case that the easy ones do really well.
This one has already amassed 1 million hits, and I have seen better games get much less than that.
With that said, it does make a lot of sense since people want to put in as little work as possible to make money.
But even though it looks effortless to get some extra cash with, it ultimately is a waste of your time has your chances of getting paid are meager.
It’s just like Tree For Money, a game that is too similar, and I reviewed not too long ago.
All you had to do was tap and build trees. People reached the required thresholds and got nothing for their time.
This is why to save you time, I advise against even downloading this game, to begin with.
Not only do they not pay out, but you’re putting your trust in people who you have no information on to give you hundreds of dollars.
