Key features:

Love the competition

I have always loved Tetris and this game is quite similar. The differences are there’s isn’t gravity to cause the pieces to fall and you can’t change the directions of the shapes to fit. You have to use what you’re given and make them fit.

I’ve seen a lot of reviews accusing the game makers of using bots or delaying the decision on who wins so that it’s the other person instead of you. I haven’t experienced this issue. I usually play for free but did put $5.00 in it to see what that was like. It was no different than if I had played for free. You win some and you lose some. The game takes a large percentage whether you’re playing with Z money or real money so my thoughts are if you don’t like that, don’t play it.

I enjoy the game and love piecing things together. I’ll continue to play!

Ton of bugs/glitches

This game is fun and addicting and Skillz is really quite on to something convincing a bunch of people to throw their money away on a game they only have a small chance of making money on (like casino slots!)

In any case, I’m only giving it two stars because this app still has a ton of bugs despite my efforts to re-install and update multiple times. For instance, it makes me run through a 30 second app ‘tutorial’ on how to add friends between every game. Occasionally you’ll win a game but it’ll say you aborted so you automatically lose. Lastly, on occasion, the game suddenly ‘slows’ mid-play in a way where I’m incapable of moving pieces with any sort of speed. And this is a speed game after all.

What makes this worse is that I’ve reported these bugs, screenshot-ed the errors, and while they’ve thanked me for reporting, they’ve never offered to reimburse me the money i paid to play ‘slowed’ or ‘aborted’ games... not even with ‘bonus cash’, which isn’t money i can withdraw anyways. That’s downright terrible customer and I’m moving on.

A lot of fun but waging money doesn’t make sense. You will lose money more than make money

Waging money is the only way to move up on tiers. Tiers are a level you are playing to increase ranking. Increased ranking will allow you to build up your bank further so you can collect faster. Playing for fun will get you no where. Tether does give you free “money” credit along the way for achievements, but in the end you will lose more money than make money. I am a rather good player and I thought I was doing pretty good but I swear I felt like I was just spinning in my wheels getting no where. It literally feels like you are stepping one step forward and then two steps back. The “juice” that tether collects off of every tournament whether you win or lose is too high and it’s too difficult to catch up

I have to say the games are fun overall but as far as making money....... you are better off playing the lottery

That’s just my opinion

We are sorry you feel that the wagers are unfair, we will pass on your feedback to Skillz. You can also play for virtual currency without playing for real cash prizes! Thanks for posting a review :)
