Swagbucks Games Beta is Live!

The wait is over and the Beta for Swagbucks Games is now live! You’ll know if you’ve been invited by heading over to your Swagbucks Inbox – you’ll see a message from us indicating that you’ve been selected to be a part of the Games Beta and giving you the link to access Games. That link will NOT work for people who haven’t been invited. Please don’t feel neglected or rejected if you’re not one of our initial testers – we’ll be taking Games live to the entire community over the course of the next few weeks.
Now let’s briefly discuss how Swag Bucks Games will work. There are going to be two ways to be rewarded for playing games:
1. Play games for free. That’s right: just playing games will randomly earn you Swag Bucks – anywhere from 1 to 5, and you can earn multiple times per day.
However, the BIG opportunities to earn will come from:
2. Buying into tournaments. Each game has multiple tournament options where you risk a small amount of Swag Bucks for the chance to earn a large amount.
Tournaments are always played at your own pace. You can enter them whenever you like! There are two different types of tournaments:
- Limited Player Tournaments where the number of total entrants is capped. As each new player enters, the number of available entries goes down by one. As soon as all the spaces are filled, the tournament closes; a winner is chosen; the tournament starts over.
In this model, you always know what the final payouts to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers will be, and you can only enter one time per tournament.
- Limited Time Tournaments where the number of entrants is unlimited and the tournament purse can grow huge, meaning your earning potential goes up without your having to lay out any additional Swag Bucks. In this model you can enter the tournament as many times as you like.
TO SUM UP: If you just want to casually play, it costs you nothing, but you won’t win every time. If you enter tournaments, it will cost you a few Swag Bucks, but you have the chance to win a much larger amount than if you just play randomly.
Enjoy the Beta, and for those who are part of it, thanks for helping us make the product the best it can be for all Swaggernauts!
