Today I will be presenting you with a Solitaire Real review.
Like with most reviews I do, I bump into new games whenever I play others.
As interestingly, whenever I test out a free cash game, I then get shown ads for others.
But anyway, this solitaire based game is one that took my attention recently, so I decided to look into it more.
This is due to the fact they are sharing screenshots of in-game where it shows how you can make $1000.
Making that amount of money would, of course, be great.
But at this point, I am just hoping to come across that pays and doesn’t mislead their users.
I know some of you have likely played the game since its release at the start of July, so here I will be going over all you need to know about Solitaire Real.

What Is Solitaire Real?
Solitaire Real is a game where you can seemingly get paid to line up decks of cards, just like the original solitaire game itself.
This type of game has found its way to me a few times of late, having recently reviewed Solitaire Tripeaks.
That game wasn’t good; however, I thought I would keep the faith to see if this one is any different.
Looking at the app store Solitaire Real seems to be owned by developers Happy Online a new developer that’s only made one other game.
So far, there 3000 reviews giving them an average rating of 4.5 stars, this along with a current total of 100k installs.
How Does Solitaire Real Work?
On the first launch, you are asked if you are a novice or a veteran when it comes to solitaire.
If you have experience with the game and have played it before, you want to go with the latter, if not, the first option will suit you better.
There isn’t a requirement for you to sign up, and just by clicking on either of the two options will take you to the main menu.
The menu of Solitaire Real will look like this:
You have the balance at the top, which will start at zero, to begin with.
Sometimes you get bonuses to get you going, such as with Lucky Party and Lucky Woody Puzzle but not in this case.
You also have the jewels, which are another currency that you can use to redeem rewards.
I will talk about those aspects a bit later on.
Playing The Game
If you look at the main buttons in front of you, you have Level 1 and Daily Challenge.
These are different modes.
By starting on the levels, you can make your way through them; however, the Daily Challenge can only be completed once a day, as you would expect.
Unlike other games, it does require some thinking; in fact, it took me about half an hour just to complete the first level.
Not because it’s hard, but more because it took me a while to get the hang of it.
The aim though is to align each of the decks. As you can see from the screenshot below, I have all four decks completed.
How To Make Money?
Along with the message for completing a level, you next get shown a box.
This box gives out $5 as a reward for completing the first level.
As you continue to play the levels, it gets progressively harder.
The first few levels take a minute or two to complete, whereas later levels take a little longer.
Now you would assume you would get paid for every level, but that is not the case.
It varies between cash and jewels; for instance, when I completed Level 2, instead of getting cash, I got 50 jewels instead of money.
There are two ways, though, to earn money, along with just playing solitaire, you can enter raffles.
Of the raffles, there is a $1 and a $100 that you can enter.
To enter and claim a free ticket, you must watch a video. Each video is an entry into a raffle.
These are held daily and every few days for the larger amount.
Whenever there is a new raffle, you will also get a notification to alert you.
Now let’s move on to the payout section of this Solitaire Real review.
How Do They Pay?
Once you have completed a few levels, you will be shown the first glimpse of a reward.
This is a $20 voucher, as you can by the screenshot below.
With the two currencies in play being both cash and jewels, you have different options to work with.
A lot of apps have this same system where they have two types of currency you can earn in-game, and this is the same with Solitaire Real.
So for the cash, you can use it to redeem one of three PayPal Amounts, you can go for $20, $50, and $100.
Jewels, however, don’t reward via cash and instead give out gift cards once converted.
You have the choice between:
- Victoria Secret
It starts at $3, which requires 12,000 jewels, but for the more expensive amounts, you are looking at 400,000 for $100.
What I Am A Fan Off
1. Fun Game That You Get Used Too
It can be tricky to figure out how to complete the levels.
At the start, I was completing the decks by lining up the cards on the below cards.
I got it quite wrong. However, after figuring it out, it gets much easier.
What I do like about the Solitaire Real game is that it does require you to get into the game.
The majority of cash games require you to do the simplest tasks, whether that be upgrading in merge games or just tapping a screen in idle.
Some of these consist of:
This one, however, does require you to zone in and concentrate. Otherwise, you will likely place the cards wrong.
2. Annoying Notifications And Ads
From playing the game, I noticed a few bugs, and I wasn’t the only one.
Now starting with the ads, which they do show a lot of, I had an issue where I was being shown double ads.
I am not sure if this is meant to happen but going off experiences with almost all other apps I have used; you are normally shown one ad.
Even if it’s one ad per 30 seconds of playing.
But what I did find is that once I had gone through a 30-second advert, I was sent straight back into another one, often the same one repeated.
It could be a bug, and I know a few users have reported this problem, but still, it is quite annoying.
Staying on the spam, they also send you quite a lot of notifications.
Apps like to do this to get you back on their game, or just to remind you of certain events going in within the games.
Sometimes it’s fine, as you may be missing out on something.
However, in this case, within 30 minutes of downloading, I had at least four notifications alerting me about raffles.
This was before I had even discovered this opportunity within the game.
Some may be okay with this, but I did have to turn them off as it was far too frequent.
3. Stock Photos?
Whenever I see a game that shows big amounts being earned that aren’t visible in-game, I make sure to look into it more.
You see this image below:
There it shows various raffles, which at first glance seem normal and did to me.
However, after looking at it a few times, I noticed how these images looked suspicious.
All of them are straight-up selfies; however, they all look the same, which is rather odd.
If you look at your Facebook friends list, you will see that no profile picture is the same as everyone takes images differently.
But in this case, it feels like someone has taken the same picture of 100 people and uploaded it up.
Now really, it’s not a massive deal as if they do give out raffle prizes legitimately, then ultimately no one cares.
This just looked really odd.
Solitaire Real is an okay game. It can be weird at first to grasp, but once you do, it’s not too bad. As the description in the store states, it presents you with a challenge and is fun.
That is the good aspect of the game, however its not all good as I spoke about.
If you want to make some money, maybe cash out that $20 they seem to make achievable, you may be chasing a long time.
This because, like every other game that makes earning so easy, it is a long grind.
Like I said above, you get to a point where you are making cents, so it will take an age to come within a distance of a payout. That’s without even talking about whether they will payout.
I would instead suggest saving your time unless you want to play solitaire; if so, try out the game.
But I would advise against playing for the sole aim to earn cash as while there is an image of a 4 figure sum being earned, and it doesn’t look like its possible to achieve.
Over the years, I have learned that its best to stick to legitimate making money apps and reward sites that have a history of paying out.
That way, whenever you put time into it, at least you know your efforts will be rewarded.
That does conclude this Solitaire Real review. If you have any questions, do let me know; if not, I will see you in the next post.

The game shows $1, $10, $100 and $1000 amounts going into the chest on the left. When
does this pay out, or does it NOT?

The boxes that are supposedly to be opened do NOT open at all after ANY level.
What’s up with this?
