If you’re like me, you love taking a shot at winning something, especially when the cost of entry is free. Number Hunch , from the company by the same name, is a cool way to try your luck with winning a small prize of $100 or more.
Number Hunch is simple to play and is a great way to pass time and maybe win a cash price.
Concept and Functionality:
The first thing you have to do is set up an account with Number Hunch, which is pretty standard. You can do so by email or by connecting Facebook to the app. Once that’s set up, you’re taken to the main screen of the app, which shows four numbers.
The object of Number Hunch is to guess the four digit number of the day. You can do so by either turning the numbers to guess specifically, or you can tap the “Hurry Hunch” button to quickly generate four random numbers.
Once your numbers are chosen, tap the “Submit” button. You’ll have to watch a short video ad after the submission, but once it’s over, you’re free to submit another number. Though the ads might be annoying, it’s important to keep in mind that it’s how Number Hunch earns revenue for prizes.
Number Hunch iPhone App
Number Hunch is a bit slim on extra features, but the point of the app is simplicity. One thing I do want to mention is that you can optionally use credits for hints such as a “not this number” hint and even a hint that reveals one of the numbers.
In order to buy these useful hints, you’ll need to spend credits. Hints range from 25 credits up to 500, and you’ll have to play the game, share via social networks, or complete tasks such as watching short video ads, in order to earn more.
Other than that, Number Hunch is very straightforward. Perhaps the best part about the app is that you can submit up to 50 “Hunches” in a 24 hour period. It really depends on how many ads you want to sit through. The cash prize go up as more “Hunches” are submitted by all players.
In fact, this app is just like a lottery except that instead of buying tickets you pay by watching 15-30 second ads. If you do win you’ll receive a PayPal iTunes gift card or Amazon gift card check in the mail.
Number Hunch is free to download from the App Store, and you won’t have to spend anything for extras. Truthfully, the only cost is your time, and it’s totally up to you as to how much you want to spend of it.
Whether you’re feeling lucky and you want to give the game a shot or you’re determined to guess the number of the day, Number Hunch is a fun and free way to try your luck.
Number Hunch requires iOS 5.1.1 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
