What is meant by “games of skill”?
In this case, a game where the element of skill, is greater than the element of chance. Remember in school, when there was nothing to do, and you played some browser-based games on the computer, just to pass the time? Or maybe you have tried the same kind of games on your smartphone while waiting for something? Regardless, there are certain types of so called “Skill Games”, that can be played online. Some websites lets you wager real money on this. The process usually looks like this:
– You select a game of your choosing, and the amount of money to bet
– You play the round, and points are matched against another human opponent
– The player with greatest score is rewarded with the prize money
Of course, there is a risk of loosing money as well, but I will try to describe to you here, the strategy which I used to earn about 1000 dollars in a couple of weeks. Then it is up to you to choose if you want to give it a shot, or decide this is not something for you.
How to choose skill gaming website
There are several companies offering this service, which have different benefits and disadvantages. When deciding, some of the aspects that should be considered are games, popularity and rake. Different sites offer alternative games, as well as tournament types. Rake is the percentage of money from a contest that goes to the websites owner, which varies, but is an important factor in order to get paid to play games. Popularity indicates that other people enjoy the site, and makes for faster matches with competition.
How to win
Here is the approach I took to get paid to play games like this. Since there are several different games, which fall into different categories, look through them and try finding the one you are best at. This doesn’t mean the game you think is most fun to play, but that which you have the greatest talent for. Most sites allow for practice rounds, without having to bet money. We are all different, some have quicker reactions, while some do better at strategic thinking. This is why it’s important to find a game that suits your own qualities. Once you made this choice, practice the game a lot, without betting money. The more you practice this way, the better chances you have of winning later on. Use every resource you can find to help learning, search for youtube videos on the game with tips, read forum posts from more experienced players. When you feel comfortable with the skill level achieved through this practice, then it’s time to try real money challenges. If it proves too difficult, go back to practice free rounds again until your score increases further.
