Cyber game manufacturers are capitalizing on the popular and addictive nature of phone games to help users not only have fun but also master their finances. The three games highlighted here are dominating the personal finance landscape, each with a different approach to helping users save.

Givling allows users to play trivia games to win a shot at $50,000 towards paying off their student loans. No student loans? Givling will also help winners with mortgage payments or retirement funds. Blast users are given an FDIC insured savings account with an impressive 2% interest rate and can win money towards their new account by playing mainstream games such as Words With Friends. Lastly, Long Game also gives users a savings account and awards them cryptocurrency for victories on their online platform challenges. Long Game accounts only earn a 0.1% interest rate but offer larger rewards for winning points in their cyber games.

While the Optimist Daily team warns against wasting too much time messing around on our smartphones, if you’re already relieving stress by playing, might as well make it worth your while!  Read the source article from Forbes to learn more about using phone apps to win at the game of personal finances.
