Boost Mobile will let you play games on your iPhone to lower your phone bill


Love mobile gaming? Well, Boost customers can now play games and watch ads from their iPhone or Android to lower their bill. This motive through Boost Mobile, Dish Network’s prepaid wireless brand, is working to make free wireless service a reality.

In the BoostOne app, customers can play games and watch ad videos to earn blockchain-backed “Boostcoins.” Customers can redeem their credits for discounts and free wireless service. However, the process of earning these coins will take time as one “Boostcoin” equals one cent.

The game you can play is called Spin & Win, similar to Wheel of Fortune, where players can earn between five cents to $5 in one spin. It’s not clear yet if there’s a limit to how many games or ads you can consume in a period of time.

The company expects “Boostcoins” to be redeemable for additional items in the future like free phones and third-party products, as well as become exchangeable with others. This offering is available for both iPhone and Android users.

9to5Mac’s Take

Who wouldn’t love to play games or watch advertisements to lower their bill? This is an interesting concept that most other carriers haven’t and probably won’t follow. Cricket has had a similar campaign called “Ad it Up” for Android users to consume content and earn bill credits.

Overall, this new effort a great way for Boost Mobile customers to save some money in tough times. Hopefully this makes an impact for customers who are looking to save.
