If you’ve been following my blog thus far, you’ve probably noticed a bit of a pattern in these apps I’ve shared with you in this past month. They’re all simple tasks you can add to your routine that require very little effort.
You can literally be taking a dump and earn money. They’re simple tasks and quick to do and you can make a habit out of it, a profitable habit at that.
I’m all about building habits because habits-- well what are habits?
They’re just things you do without even thinking or trying. It's the lazy way to develop habits. You can develop good habits and bad habits, but both come from a source of laziness
One of the best ways to minimize effort and maximize results as well as embrace the Lazy Mindset is to build a habit because then you’re doing something without any effort at all.
It’s completely mindless and effortless when it’s done under the premise of a lazy habit. You just sort of “roll” with it - pun intended.
You may be in the habit of checking your social media on your phone. Good, add checking these apps that I’ve recommended including this one to that habit so you can earn money while doing that. It’s not about “trying” to “do” something. It’s about integrating it into your life, putting it into your routine so that it gets done without any worry or effort.
Without further ado, let’s dive right into the review...
Very Dice is gambling/luck game where you can win REAL prizes.
Gameplay is simple.
You roll 2 six-sided dice and win tickets based on the amount you roll. The higher the number, the more tickets you win.These tickets can be exchanged for various prizes. BOOM! That’s it. Oh and it’s free. Signup is free and rolls are easily obtainable for free.
Now, I’m not normally into “luck based” games or mechanics when it comes to earning my money online. I want something *guaranteed* I don’t want to waste my time hoping, wishing, scrubbing a lucky coin and crossing my fingers all in a leap of faith to gain compensation for my time.
I’m not a fan of prize draws or chances in my income.
I’m not saying I‘m risk averse I mean hell i invest in stocks and crypto,, but risks have to be smart and calculated not just completely randomly dictated by the outcome of say-- a roll of die.
Fortunately, I am happy to report that there is a bit of strategy as well as patience involved and the winnings are not complete RNG. Prizes can be “earned” instead of “won”. While luck does play a bit of factor (I mean you are in fact rolling dice), it’s not enough to turn me away and say “Well fuck that I’d rather just play the lottery or go the casino.”
I’m going to dive into that strategy as well as give an in-depth review of the app overall.
The prizes include everything from electronics to furniture and even clothes and makeup, if you’re into that sort of thing, but my favorite category of prizes, which they actually added recently, is the gift cards. Oh yeah!
All the gift cards are electronic and delivered to your inbox within a few days. I’ve received my cash outs within 3 days. I typically cash out for an Amazon gift card, as I do with most of these micro money sites, since I can accrue multiple gift cards from multiple sources all in one balance.
I did “cash out” my tickets once for a physical prize (this was before they actually offered gift cards on a frequent basis) to get a copy of Cards Against Humanity and it arrived within a week, which isn’t too bad.
This all sounds good on paper but is it worth your time?
Short answer is yes. Long answer, well, let’s look at how to make the most of it. Shall we?
MAKE IT PART OF THE DAILY ROUTINE
The easiest way to earn rolls is to login each day. You get a random number of rolls between 1 and 10, every 24 hours
That’s 1-10 cents per day just for opening the app. Not too shabby.
This apps worth downloading, if anything, just for the daily login bonus.
Each hour, videos become available for you to watch underneath the “Action Feed”. Open your Action Feed then from there go to “View Sponsored” and “Watch”
You’re probably checking your phone *at least* that often to keep up to date on social media and text your friends and lovers -- just make it part of your routine, build the habit to also open up Very Dice and watch a few videos to earn rolls.
Each video you watch earns you 1 roll.
Assuming you aim for the Doubles Jackpot Streak Bonus (detailed later), you average about 10 tickets per roll.
The cash out ratio converts to 1,000 points per dollar (it costs 25,000 points for the $25 gift card, for example)
So you’re looking at roughly 1 cent per video watched, which fluctuates slightly depending a bit on your luck, but overall you can expect each video to be a whopping one cent each.
Of course, these numbers are bound to change and they may increase the tickets required to cash out in the future. I can guarantee that the earning rate will never actually *go up*; it will always go down. That’s sort of how these sites work. Buckle up adn get used to it, if you’re entering the realm of lazy beermoney.
Now that one cent may sound like nothing, nada, chicken shit.
But in terms of “GPT” sites, getting paid one cent per “click” is actually really decent. Most of these sites are paying fractions of a fraction of a penny per click.
I recommend saving up & accumulating a large amount of rolls (5k+) in order to...
- Win a Double Streak bonus
- Avoid playing the minigames
- Minimize the amount of time rolling dice
Rolls don't expire and it’s not worth using up your rolls if you can’t make a bonus. It’s just a waste of rolls. Your roll/ad view is worth far less than 1 cent if you do. So c’mon now, get with the program. Save ‘dem rolls!
Roll up a joint instead of rolling your dice. Well, I mean until you have a SHIT TON of rolls. Thousands.
You basically get a bonus amount of tickets for landing all six double pairs within a 24 hour period. The clock resets when you either run out of time or fulfill a streak.
If you do run out time, you are absolute SOL and lose all your doubles. Congratulations, idiot! Like Groundhog Day, back to the beginning and try again. Get it right this time.
You’re not going to be able to accumulate enough rolls within just 24 hours, which is why you save like a squirrel hibernating for the winter - gather your nuts and use them all at once when you actually can.
This number is dependent on how lazy you are and how often you want to play the rollie pollie ollie game and also how often you want to cash out.
It’s important to note: You CAN adjust the multiplier when working towards your streak. For example, you could have a 2x multiplier on 1 and 2, 4x multiplier on 3 and 4, etc.
The bonus will be calculated after you successfully rolled all six pairs of double, no matter which multiplier you used for each.
It’s not really practical to aim to use a certain multiplier on a certain pair because well, you’re rolling freaking dice and can’t really predict what will land. Adjusting the multiplier should only be used *in case of emergency* when you happen to go a very UN-lucky streak.
I’m pretty lazy (as well as patient) so I wait until I have enough rolls to Auto Roll on the 50x dice multiplier. If I happen to be running low on rolls and still don’t have a strong progress towards my streak, I’ll adjust the multiplier to a lower stat. This assures I’m not running out of rolls and can still hit my streak bonus.
The streak bonus is the most important thing you want to keep. There’s honestly no incentive in using a higher multiplier than 2x, other than the fact that it takes less time to roll when you do actually play. I don't like to waste time more than I have to, so I'll opt for that.
10,000+ = start at 50x multiplier (pink)
5,000= switch to 20x multiplier (dark green)
2,500 = switch to 10x multiplier (purple)
1,000 = switch to 5 x multiplier (yellow)
500 = switch to 4 x multiplier (red)
300 = switch to 3 x multiplier (light green)
200 = switch to 2x multiplier (blue)
50 = switch to 1x multiplier (white)
The absolute MINIMUM rolls that I personally recommend accumulating is about 400. This will let you auto roll on the 2x multiplier, earn your streak bonus, and avoid playing those pesky minigames.
That’s my opinion, of course-- you may like these minigames. I don’t. I find them repetitive and annoying, but if you like doing the same task over and over again, maybe that’s right up your ally.
Now you *could* get away with around 200 rolls accumulated to have enough win a streak on the 1x multiplier, but that would require playing a mini game every single time you roll a double.
The advantage is that you can probably cash out sooner if you go for a fidget spinner or something cheap.
But c’mon, you could pick those types of prizes from the dollar store or something. This isn’t Chuck E. Cheese. It’s time to win some real prizes worth your time, not silly little toys.
Go for the gift cards. You’ll have to wait a little longer, but it’ll at least be something worthwhile and not something that’ll end up in the trash within a few months.
And like I said those minigames are a bitch and make this app a hell of a lot less passive. Sometimes you roll doubles you already rolled and have to play a mini game. Not fun.
Just give me the double points and I’ll be on my merry way. Thank you.
Mini games, while they offer a chance to win bonus tickets, are quite frankly just a waste of time. Like I said, you can totally skip over mini-games AND STILL WIN BONUS TICKETS if you are using a higher multiplier (2x or more).
This will simply give you an amount of bonus tickets equal to double of that roll then multiplied by the dice multiplier . For example if you rolled two sixes, you would get 24 tickets (which is then put in calculation towards the multiplier, so a 2x multiplier would land you 48 tickets for that roll)
Double is good enough, because most times I earned around the amount anyway playing the mini games
Sometimes it is necessary though to play these minigames so that you *can* fulfill your Double Streak Bonus and maximize your earnings. You may not have enough rolls to use the multiplier and have to settle for 1x instead.
Mini games are a bit of a bonus round, after rolling doubles under the 1x multiplier, allowing you to earn additional tickets from your roll. You can earn over
Mini-games will ONLY pop up if you are playing with the 1x multiplier (default option) on and roll a double.
There are 2 types of mini games possible: BasketBall and Space Shooter. I wish they'd combine both and have a Michael Jordan cameo
You get to choose which one to play, but The Space Shooter is only available if you roll a double on a pair of 6s.
Regardless, I recommend playing the Basketball anyway, if you’re looking for efficiency, since it’s not only easier but also a lot faster.
It’s quite an easy gimmick, fling your finger to throw the ball and land it in the net. As a Pokemon Go master, this is a skill I’m quite adept in and have no problem racking those extra points and scoring bonus tickets. I manage to grab *slightly more* than double. So say I roll a double five, then I would score around 12-13 in the basketball round.
I shoot with about 90-95% accuracy, which is pretty high. Now I’m not the best, but I’m pretty good. What I’m saying is that if you’re no in your A-game you may not even earn the amount equal to what you’d get had you just skipped the minigame and rolled with a multiplier instead.
Average players need not apply. It just isn’t worth the hassle.
You can “skip” the basketball round, but that means you get NO BONUS whatsoever, so I suppose play the game even if you suck at it because 1 bonus ticket is better than zero.
If you’re skipping the minigames, then you should have just accumulated more rolls and used the multiplier. It’s understandable though if you just got caught up in a bad luck streak though.
The countdown timer in the mini game is based on the number you roll, so a pair of double 4s gives you more time than a pair of 2s, for example.
The Space Shooter game just doesn’t seem worth the time it takes to win tickets.
Although if we’re looking at fun factor, the Space Shooter wins in that category. It’s a very generic shoot ‘em up game though - still better them a generic toss game in terms of fun factor.
The bigger dice you take out, the more tickets you win. Crash and it’s game over. You only get one life and basically have to make it to the end with a nearly perfect score to get anywhere close what you would’ve have won in the basketball round. This takes a couple minutes shooting things as opposed to just a few seconds throwing balls.
You can choose your winning multiplier, and anything above the 1x multiplier will just double your tickets instead of having you fool around with a carnival game. This is the route I encourage you to do, unless your bored and want to play a game, but there’s better games out there anyway.c Go play Pokemon Go if you wanna toss the basket ball and go play Raiden or Upgrade the Game if you want a good shoot ‘em up.
Don’t download Very Dice for the gameplay of the dice game itself or the bonus minigames, now, honestly.
YESS!!! AUTO BOTS ROLL OUT!
I like to automate tasks that take a lot of effort to streamline my lazy lifestyle. I don’t want to keep clicking. Fortunately, you can turn on “auto-roll” and have ti keep rolling until you run out or a minigame pops up.
While passive, I recommend keeping a bit of an eye on it just so you know when/if you completed your streak and can stop rolling when you do.
The down side here if you read the fine print it says: “For a Limited Time Only”
All I can say is use it while you can, dudes and dudettes.
If by the time you read this review, it’s not free, it’s probably not worth more than free. I mean unless it’s real cheap.
I may take a look at it and review it when they start charging and update this blog if I feel like it., but in case I decide to put that off, which will likely happen, I mean c’mon I’m the ProcrastiN8r, I will include this bit iof analysis. We can probably already estimate the type of price tag their gonna slam down on that auto-roller based on what they already charge for rolls in general
See if you go into the Action Feed, you’ll see an option entitled “Get Instant”. This is where the IAP is located, the overly priced IAP.
Now I know we live in a world of Instant Satisfaction but simmer on down, unless Instant Empty Wallet is what you want.
Remember we broke down how you’re earning roughly 1 cent for each roll.
You’re paying $100 for $45 worth of rolls. And that’s the BEST deal.
I can only imagine what these guys will charge for an auto roller. Unless it’s something you can unlock permanently for a one time fee that you can pay with your tickets, then I’d say avoid it.
They’ll probably make it subscription based or if it’s not subscription based, it’ll be something stupid like $100+
You’re better off putting that into Bitcoin ...jesus. Anyway these are just predictions, as the Auto-Roll feature stands in time of writing, it works, and it works well, and it’s free, so definitely use it for as long as it remains F2P.
After you earn a roll, for whatever the fuck reason, you have to click “collect” for each individual roll you earned, or I should say for each “offer” you completed (in some instances, you can earn more than one roll, like your bonus streaks and other things, which I’ll get to), but there is nothing more tedious, more mind-numbing then frantically clicking “collect” on….
Okay, but seriously why not a COLLECT ALL button? Hello? Seems like an obvious feature, there, developer.
It doesn’t even have multi-point touch enabled to allow me to collect more than one roll at once aaaaand the load time to collect is at least a couple seconds.
Dude. Fix this part of the app, it is fundamentally broken. Have you tested it, Mr. Developer? Does it seem like a user friendly experience to you?
WELL ’CAUSE IT’S FUCKING NOT!!!
*Ahem* needless to say I am quite frustrated by their choice to do this, but it’s all good.
We have an auto roll feature, but not a collect all one? WTF!
Maybe they’ll add one you’ll have to pay for in the future. Oh that would be some bullshit.
I better shut up before I give them ideas..
I typically collect about once every other week or so. I’ve even gone over a month without collecting. This is the most work the app requires from me.
They just kind of sit there in your account until you click on them to collect, though so there's no rush.
Other Offers (besides videos)
These generally are NOT worth doing in Very Dice.The pay out is low and it has a lot of the same trumps other GPT (Get-Paid-To) sites tend to have: not getting credit and having to e-mail support back and forth for a week to *maybe* actually get it. Just don’t waste your times
Plus, these are the same offers other Micro Money sites offer.
You can only complete the sponsored offers ONCE per sponsor across all GPT sites. Very Dice is very low paying for these offers and you’re better off, if you were going to do them, find another site to do so.
Pollfish Surveys are the only ones really worth doing. They take less than a minute and give you anywhere between 5 and 10 rolls. Sometimes you can get disqualified, but it boots you quick, like after one or two questions, rather than after 30 minutes of answering questions, as a lot of these survey sites tend to do.
Pollfish surveys are random. Sometimes I’ll get multiple surveys a day, other times I can go a few days, even weeks without anything. I suppose it depends on how well I fit the demographic they’re looking for
Redeem Don't Gamble.
Don't try for the sweepstakes or prize drawings. Stick to the gift cards, or even any of the physical products where you trade a set amount of tickets for a set thing.
I know it can be tempting to try and WIN IT BIG, but you're not going to. You're just not. I mean yeah, there's a chance, but you're literally just throwing money in a well wishing for a magic leprechaun to enchant you with the eternal blessing of a unicorn. There's a chance that could happen too.
- Login/open app daily
- Watch videos hourly (or a couple times per day) in the Action Feed Tab
- Collect from your Bonus Tab . One. At. A. Time. from the Bonus Tab
- Optionally complete Pollfish surveys
- Roll when you have a shit ton of rolls (400+) and use 2x multiplier or higher
- Cash out on whatever you want (but gift cards are recommended if you’re using other beermoney methods)
It’s a decent-paying beermoney app and one of the few that offers a daily login bonus. It’s worth downloading even if you only open it once per day and never watch the videos or take the polls. It becomes an easy habit to pick up and watch videos every hour and the pay out for viewing those ads is totally worth it, especially compared to similar “get paid to watch” apps. The auto roll feature makes it very passive, although it’s unclear how much longer this will be a free feature and what the cost will look like right now. Collecting rolls one at a time is terrible though and they really need a “collect all” feature. Besides videos, most other offers aren’t worth the time, with the exception of one survey provider. The prize selection is massive and there’s definitely something for everyone. You can either earn money in gift cards or “stuff” to either keep or sell. There is no cash out to PayPal or crypto, as of writing. They usually take under a week to send a cash out.
You do need to sign up via Google or Facebook, which may turn some people away.
Overall, I give Very Dice a ProcrastiN 6/8
