Blast is an app that pays gamers to test and play new games, or go deeper in games they love. There are no surveys or small jobs to complete, but each time a gamer tries one of the game “missions” in the app they typically receive a dollar. For example, Blast users can try the game Words with Friends, where the mission is “Increase your vocabulary by playing 100 words and earn a dollar.” Gamers can easily earn a few dollars a week and they also receive XP (Experience Points) that puts the gamer in the running to win a leaderboard that might pay $100. For people who spend a lot of time playing games, Blast is a fun way to track your accomplishments and save money over the long term.
