Hey there, friend and welcome to my Pop Gems app review!
Have you ever heard of games that claim to pay out real cash?
I mean, if they claim they’re legit, they must be, right?
Well, my experience with reviewing such money-making games on this site often proves otherwise.
Many games shout from the rooftops that they’ll make you rich, but, spoiler alert, they usually don’t.
Enter Pop Gems. A game offering a whopping $100 just for downloading!
Naturally, my curiosity piqued.
But I had to ask, “Is this just another one of those games?”
I never judge a book by its cover, so I dived deep into Pop Gems to find out what it’s really all about.

What is Pop Gems?
Pop Gems is a match-three puzzle game that promises big bucks for playing.
It’s produced by Micheetech, a rather elusive company with only two other games under its belt.
And guess what? Both of them claim to offer money-making opportunities too.
But do any of Miceetech’s games actually pay out?
There’s a catch.
The game doesn’t have any reviews on the App Store. Suspicious, right?
In fact, all you’ll see on the App Store are harmless screenshots of gem-busting fun, and a curious “early access mode” button.
This button makes it look like the developers are playing a game of hide and seek.
Making it harder for players to leave reviews.
So, if someone played and didn’t make any money.
You wouldn’t know unless you really scoured the internet.
Yet, if you’ve seen their ad.
Then you might still believe it’s legit because of the wild claims they make.
How Does Pop Gems Work?
When you open Pop Gems, a pop-up claims you can earn 100% real cash in just three steps.
I must admit, emphasizing “100%” seems like a red flag.
But, for the sake of the review, I followed the steps:
- Go to the game center and play.
- Earn cash rewards by playing.
- Cash out immediately.
Once you hit start, you’re introduced to the dashboard.
There’s a lofty cash-out minimum of $1000.
They offer a myriad of redemption platforms, including PayPal and Amazon gift cards.
And then comes the catch: to claim your earnings, you need to enter your personal details.
However, you can choose to add these later.
How to Play Pop Gems
Diving into the gameplay, Pop Gems isn’t your typical match-three game.
Instead of jumping right in, you must select the “mine” tab.
Here, you bust colorful gems in an 8×10 grid to earn rewards.
Destroying gems fills a counter, and leveling up this counter gets you cash bonuses.
But there’s another catch.
Starting from level 2, you must watch an ad to claim your reward.
This is how the devs earn their dough.
Additionally, there’s a cash counter on the side.
Fill it up, and you might unlock cash bonuses between $30 to $60.
For gameplay boosters, there are two power-ups:
A wand and a hammer, both designed to help you clear gems.
Other Features of the Game
Pop Gems isn’t just about gem mining.
They’ve packed in a games tab with mini-games.
Playing these also fills a counter to earn you cash.
If I’m being honest, the setup feels familiar.
Many money-making games I’ve reviewed lately have a similar approach.
It seems that Pop Gems is trying a bit too hard to be everything at once.
And the more you play, the clearer it becomes: the game appears to be all about the cash grab.
My Final Thoughts
Every chance they get, the developers seem to nudge you towards watching ads.
Now, I get it.
Free-to-play games need to earn revenue.
But the way Pop Gems does it – luring players with promises of big payouts – feels a tad excessive.
Well, that wraps up my review of Pop Gems.
