Since I haven’t finished writing the post about the best AR games for iPhone that I promised everyone on the Facebook page, I decided to publish an “apology post” with some quick tips to score some free games online.
There are tested methods that will give you the opportunity to play online games for free. In some cases you might find yourself playing for cash prizes, too.
Unless specified, however, all the games I speak about are “games” – so no money is involved in and out.
The Mother of all Tips: Join a Reddit Channel!
You’d be surprised by the amount of things you don’t know about Reddit.
Being a veeeeery old-time Redditor myself, I know a bunch about this amazing service and I use it DAILY to find great offers, promotions, and even invitations to get on and test new games.
Have you ever wondered how developers test their games?
Have a look at this channel. This is where you need to be if you want to be invited to play free online games before they reach the mass.
Open Your Own Sub-Reddit
While this might take you a bit of time, opening your own Reddit is your best shot if you want to play for free in the long-term.
Start by being active in the channel above and socialise with other users. Help them with their questions, test as many free games as you can, and always provide constructive feedback.
This will help you build authority on the platform and, once authority is built, create your own sub-reddit and add your channel to your message and let people join you.
This way, you will have full control over the channel’s content and major software devs will contact you to be the first one to play their games for free.
Play Social Games
As Ace of Brains – a gaming site I love and where I also published something back in the days – cleverly puts it, there’s no humanly explicable reason behind paying to play social games.
If you are in it for the fun, let their promotion do the hard work for you and give you all you need to enjoy hours of free entertainment.
You can play poker for days with the WSOP free chips Mega Bonus, practice blackjack with $100,000 in free credits or even try playing it here, one of the coolest free-to-play games you can find on PS4, Xbox, or PC.
Ask Yourself: Is There a No Deposit Bonus?
Many online casino sites give away no deposit bonuses as restaurants give away appetisers.
This month, for example, EnergyCasino has a funky 15 free spins no deposit bonus to play slots that ain’t too bad.
You sign up, they send you some emails with advertising, and in exchange you get to play real money games even if you don’t deposit.
Even if it’s true that when there’s no product, the product is you – this is a pretty good deal. I didn’t win anything when I used my spins last week, but the room now promised me to give me even more free spins – meaning I’ll get a few more chances to make it.
I made a note to update you on my progresses.
Use Your Phone
Come on, we all use the phone to play. You don’t need to have an uber-expensive console in front of you to have fun.
Go to the AppStore, head to the free games section and get wild. Download everything you can (or your phone can store) and let the fun begin.
