Slots for Happy App Review – Scam Or Legit?

Slots for Happy app iconWelcome to my Slots for Happy app review.

There are a lot of apps out there that simulate gambling. You are probably asking, “Why are there apps like that?” I guess it’s because going to casinos cost actual money. And not a lot of people have that kind of money that they can waste at a casino. If you have never been to a casino before, good for you. You are not missing much.

I am actually amazed that a lot of developers have managed to recreate a bit of those experiences on your phone. Usually, card games are the ones you see a lot of on the app stores. But there are some that simulate the experience of playing on bigger machines, such as a slot machine.

Since these games only simulate the experience of playing in a casino, they do not require you to put out any of your money. Those games also do not, in any capacity, give out any actual money if you win. That’s the point of a simulation. But there are some apps out there that somehow tries to do the latter.

That’s where the Slots for Happy app comes in. If you have seen a slot machine, whether in real life or in movies, you kind of know what the deal is. You pull a lever and wait for the machine to spin. If you matched three similar icons, you win. The prizes depend on what the rules are. But it usually functions that way.

So when I saw that you can win money and prizes from this app, I was immediately skeptical. This is not the first time that I have reviewed a slot machine app. I wrote a review of Slot Rush a while back. There was a familiarity to the genre already there. Still, I had to find out what it was like.


Slots for Happy App Review

Here are some quick details about the app:

  • Full Name: Slots For Happy
  • Developer: AlwaysWin
  • Availability: No longer listed
  • User Reviews: Not available

What Is Slots for Happy?

Slots for Happy is an app that simulates a slot machine. You click on a button in order to spin. If you match three icons, you will win rewards that you can redeem for prizes. The prizes you might win through this app include PayPal credits, gift cards for various online stores, and physical prizes like a phone or gaming console.


How Slots for Happy Works

The Slots for Happy app was previously available through Early Access on the Google Play Store for Android users. The developer of this app, AlwaysWin, is also no longer listed on the Play Store as of the time of this writing. Most of the other apps developed by AlwaysWin are also slot machine games. You can still find places that host the APK of the app online. But it’s not really recommended.

Even though the app is no longer available, I will still be treating it like a normal review.

Playing the Game

When you load up the app for the first time, you will be required to accept the Privacy Policy of the app. That’s not really an unusual thing for a game to do. They do, in some way, handle a bit of the data you provide within their app. And you need to be sure that your data is handled properly.

Once you actually start the game, a pop-up will show for a special event where you have to collect $1000 worth of PayPal credits within 24 hours. As you can see, the game is kind of laying it pretty thick that you can win something from playing the game. Still, $1000 within 24 hours seems like it’s going to be difficult to do. Unless you spend most of your day playing the game. Which is probably what the developers want you to do.

The game starts you off with ten spins. That’s how many you can spin at any given time. You press the button that says “Spin” in order to start. The button will gray out. That basically means you can’t spin again until all three reels have stopped spinning.

You get a free spin every two minutes. So you’re probably not going to use up all of the ten spins you have. But ten is the limit. So when 200 minutes have passed, the game will no longer give you any free until you’ve used up one of those spins.

Gameplay for the Slots for Happy app

Unlike in Slot Rush where you can match multiple icons at the same time, Slots for Happy only lets you match three icons. I actually like it more than the former. Slot Rush was too overwhelming for me. There was too much happening at any given time.

The objective of the game is to match three icons. That’s it. There’s nothing else you have to do. You just have to keep spinning and spinning in order to win something.

It felt kind of weird to be winning so many times in the first few spins in the game. Am I just lucky? Or does the game just want you to get addicted from those initial wins? The second one is a lot more believable for me. I rarely have any luck playing with actual slot machines. So this game was immediately giving off some bad vibes.

Matchy Matchy

You can match a lot of different icons that net different types of rewards. There are so many things you can earn in this game. It’s actually a problem with a lot of these kinds of apps. There’s too many things to keep track of. But there are two main virtual currency that they usually default to. Coins and PayPal credits. You can’t go wrong with those two

You have to match three PayPal icons to win a random amount of PayPal credits. But in order to claim your winnings, you have to watch an ad. After that, it will get added to your balance.

The same applies to coins.  Match three of the coin stacks and you win coins. You still have to watch an ad to claim it. You obviously will get larger amounts of coins than PayPal credits.

There also other tokens you can win that can be redeemed for other prizes. The ones I saw are diamonds, golden tickets, bells and black cards. Then there are gift boxes.  You can get puzzle pieces from it. Ugh. Puzzle pieces. Not this again.

Unlike other apps where you have to earn specific puzzle pieces for specific items, the Slots for Happy app has generic puzzle pieces. But there are probably certain amounts you have to collect before you can exchange them for the prize that you want. If you look at the screenshot above, it shows the kind of prizes you can get for exchanging puzzle pieces. You can get a PS5, an iPhone, a MacBook or even a vacuum cleaner.

If you match three Extra Spin icons, you will obviously get an extra spin. When you match three Bonus icons, you will get five chances to earn PayPal credits and coins. You have a 100% chance of earning either currency. So if you managed to get that, congratulations!

Is Slots for Happy Legit? Does It Pay?

Since the app is no longer available to download, and the developers are no longer releasing any apps, it’s pretty much obvious that you can’t actually get any of your earnings. Shocking, I know. But the winnings were never guaranteed in the first place.

Still, let’s talk about all of the things you could’ve gotten from the game.

The main thing you could’ve gotten were PayPal credits. A classic in a lot of these money earning apps. In the case of the Slots for Happy app, you can only get two amounts. A $1000 amount, that is somehow only available for 24 hours, and a $1500 amount.

Since the $1000 amount gets shown every time you win PayPal credits from the slots, it will release a pop-up once you’ve reached that amount. There is also a second requirement needed in order for you to cash out. You have to watch a total of 20 advertisements. All of the ads you have watched whenever you had to claim your winnings from the slots are counted. You’ve probably cleared that one already too.

The app will ask you to type the email address that you use for your PayPal account. And once you’ve redeemed that $1000 amount, it doesn’t actually send it out immediately. The app will put the transaction under review. It will also suggest that you watch 60 advertisements in one day in order to claim your reward.

If you’re wondering if that works, it does not. Because once you’ve watched 60 advertisements, it will now require you to watch a total of 300 advertisements within three days. The 60 you’ve watched may or may not be counted towards the 300 required. So you’re basically just stuck in limbo.

Also, you can get gift cards from the other stuff you’ve won from the slot machine. As you can see, you can choose from six different brands. Visa, Amazon, Steam, Google Play, PlayStation and Xbox. Pretty respectable and well-known brand names. Not really sure how they’ve managed to get their permission to use their names in this app. They probably didn’t ask them.

The minimum amount you can redeem from exchanging those items is $1000. That’s a pretty large amount as gift cards go. But if that’s the amount the app wants to use, sure. In order to redeem that amount, you have to collect a 100 of whatever tokens they have, 900 thousand in case you go the coins route. You can sort of reach 900 thousand coins if you play regularly. But, holy shit. That is still a lot to collect. And you’re probably going to be stuck watching hundreds of ads if you try to cash out.

I did not manage to check out the rewards page for the puzzle piece system. Though, if I had to assume, they probably require you to collects hundreds of puzzle pieces. [sigh] Why do developers keep putting this cursed system into their apps? Stop doing this, please.

They somehow managed to get away with it for a few months until AlwaysWin decided to get out of the game business entirely. At least you don’t have to worry about watching so many ads anymore.


Pros and Cons


  • Decent graphics
  • Decent gameplay


  • Payout process is bad
  • You don’t actually get any of the prizes


Well, it’s a good thing this app doesn’t exist anymore. At least other people wouldn’t get scammed from playing this game. But there are still so many scam money earning apps out there. So I can’t really be sure about that.

I will have to say that the slot machine gameplay was pretty enjoyable. They could have design some aspects of the UI/UX a bit better. But I kind of enjoyed playing the game. It did not last that long, though.

Apps like Slots for Happy are still a big problem on the app store. And I don’t really know why there is not a lot of pushback happening to combat scam apps. There are so many people who could fall prey with any of these apps. Because who wouldn’t want to try out an app if it meant you could $1000 with relative ease?

I guess these apps do still fit the simulated gambling bill. They do simulate the experience of playing on a slot machine. They also managed to be disappointing. Weird to joke about it. But it’s true.

I just hope that you are a lot more careful on what kind of apps to try install on your phone. The sound of $1000 may be enticing but you can never be too sure.

And that’s it for my review of the Slots for Happy app. I hope you enjoyed this review. If you did, please share it with your friends and loved ones.
