Welcome to my Prize Fiesta app review.
I thought this game would be an interesting one to review because they claim to send you prizes.
They claim that if you win any rewards, they will mail them straight to you.
Over the months of reviewing dozens of games, I have learned that app developers like to say whatever it takes to make people download their game.
So if that means straight-up lying about any possibility of winning anything, then most companies do seem to do that.
However, with Prize Fiesta, there is a chance they could be legit, and in this post, I will share with you whether they are genuine or if they are a can.
By the end, you will know whether it’s possible to get rewards sent to your door and if so, is it likely that you can pick the game up and receive them.
Prize Fiesta App Review Summary

What Is Prize Fiesta?
Prize Fiesta is a puzzle game that holds sweepstakes where users can win rewards.
When users play the game, they can be eligible to get rewards through in-game sweepstakes.
However, it does look like one of those games where you have to be lucky to win from first impressions.
Some users have played from the moment it was released and have not won anything.
But saying that, it does look like some people are receiving some rewards.
Prize Fiesta was released back in 2017 and has over 1 million installs.
How Does Prize Fiesta Work?
The game itself is your standard match three symbols together puzzle game.
So the aim of each level is to swipe your finger to make three of one symbol.
This can be horizontal, vertical, and diagonally.
You are given several moves per stage, so you need to use them wisely to complete the level.
Each level includes three stages.
To go on to the next level, you must finish all of them.
Now, as you play the game, you earn piggy dollars that are added to your piggy bank.
This is shown in the screenshot below:
These can be used to enter sweepstakes.
Other currencies to allude to include:
- Trophies: You can earn trophies when you get a victory. These will apparently help you earn bonuses. When you collect these, you will be added to the contest where you can earn virtual money.
- Mushrooms: Mushrooms are collected as you play. When you reach 90 in the pot, you can collect them. You can also lose these while offline, as for every six minutes, you are deducted one mushroom.
What I Didn’t Like About Prize Fiesta
In total, I found three aspects of Prize Fiesta that I wasn’t a big fan of.
So in this section, I am going to go over each of the three.
1. Reaching $750 To See Rewards
To unlock the prize cavern, users must get to $750.
Personally, I thought this was rather steep since that is the amount needed just to see what’s on offer.
To get to that amount, you do need to put hours into the game.
If you are new, you will do so without knowing what the end reward will be.
2. Misleading You Into Thinking Your Making Money
From the moment you start playing Prize Fiesta, they ingrain this idea that you will be making money.
However, what you earn is used to enter sweepstakes and not to cash out.
Now while the game is engaging and many people find it fun, the unneeded pop-ups saying ‘you are making money’ is just very misleading.
As I explained earlier, as you complete levels, you win mushrooms, which convert into piggy dollars.
However, when this money is added to the bank (your account), it isn’t worth anything.
In the terms, it is stated that any money you make with Prize Fiesta is not withdrawable and cannot be converted.
So when they say you’re making money, in reality, you aren’t.
While the in-game messages are something I don’t like. I am also not a fan of the currency used.
Seeing dollars in your balance makes it look like you have earned something.
They could have gone for something more unique such as coins.
3. Sweepstakes = No Guarantee
Whenever I see sweepstake games like this one, I lose immediate interest in it since luck depends on whether you win.
If you are like me and want to use your time to good use, then this game isn’t for you.
There isn’t a way to withdraw money or cash out prizes.
Instead, you have to hope that your name is picked out of a hat to win.
For this reason, I am seeing several people who have played the game for years and won nothing since no rewards are guaranteed to you.
Now, as I said, I lose interest because grinding games like this are made pointless. After all, you aren’t being rewarded for your time.
Let’s say you played for 3 years and eventually won a smartwatch. For e.g., It still wouldn’t be worth it.
Of course, you get lucky and win within your first few weeks playing it, but the bottom line is if you’re looking to get cool rewards, this isn’t really the app for you.
It’s essentially just a game to play to have fun with. If you win, then that’s a bonus.
While confusing to grasp at the start Prize Fiesta is a fun game to play in your spare time.
Albeit the odds are minimal, it is possible to win rewards, and there is proof out there that shows people are getting items sent to them.
That aspect is cool, but as I just talked about in the above section, there are reasons why I don’t recommend them:
- You’re not converting your money for time.
- It involves in-app purchases. However, it says that the game isn’t gambling.
Essentially, if you are playing the game because you love puzzles, that is completely fine, and I encourage you to do so.
However, looking at the prize aspect and also what I spoke about earlier with users playing for years, then downloading the game for these rewards is not the best use of your time.
I have found that it’s best to play these types of puzzle games for the game itself, and if you do win then, that’s a bonus.
I hope this Prize Fiesta app review gave you a better idea of what the app is about.
