The popularity of social and sweepstakes online platforms has skyrocketed in the US in the last couple of years. One platform that has made waves recently is called Fliff, and it’s a social sportsbook.
Simply put, this mobile app lets you bet on real-life events using in-game coins. In other words, you can enjoy all the benefits of real sports betting sites without using real money to place wagers. The good news is that you can still win real prizes.
In the following review, Gambla.com will show you how Fliff works and point out its major advantages and disadvantages. Moreover, we’ll discuss available sports, betting options, licenses, customer service, and more. Finally, we’ll answer some of the most frequent questions that interested players have before joining Fliff. Read on.
The designers and developers behind Fliff went the extra mile to make the platform fully immersive, interactive, and functional. The app is currently only available for mobile devices, meaning Fliff doesn’t feature a browser-based web application that you can access via desktop and mobile browsers. In short, if you want to enjoy using Fliff, you must download the app. We’ll cover that in the mobile app section of this review.
Fliff’s user-friendly and intuitive app makes navigating and placing bets easy. You can access the platform’s main features, such as the sportsbook, player rewards, your wallet, cashier, and invites, from the main menu. You can also view the live scores, the upcoming events, and the popular bets from other players.
The app has a sleek and modern design that matches the theme of social sports betting. The colors are bright and vibrant, and the graphics are clear and appealing.
Moreover, the app is fast and reliable, with no noticeable lag or glitches. The loading time is quick, and the transactions are secure and encrypted.
Fliff is only available as a mobile app, which you can download on Google Play and App Store, depending on the type of mobile device you have. If you’re an Android user, remember that you need to have at least Android 7.0 in order to install Fliff.
Apple users need iOS 11.0 or later for iPhone, iPod touch, or Mac to install the application.
This is the major disadvantage of Fliff: it’s unavailable to anyone who doesn’t have a newer phone or tablet. In the case of other sweepstakes platforms, casinos, and sports betting sites, those who cannot access the mobile app version can rely on the browser-based app, which doesn’t exist for Fliff — at least not at the moment.
The payment methods at Fliff are limited, as you can only use credit and debit cards to make deposits and withdrawals from the platform. All three major card brands are accepted — Mastercard, Visa, and American Express. Therefore, if you have a bank account and a card, you will be able to make quick and secure transactions.
Unfortunately, everyone who relies on e-wallets, cryptos, and other payment methods will not be able to make purchases at Fliff — at least not for the time being.
Fliff currently offers ticket-based customer support, which means you must fill out a form and open a ticket with your question to get a response from an available support representative. Support works 24/7, but the response time might vary depending on the overall number of submitted tickets.
The Gambla team tested customer support and received quick responses every time — within minutes.
Fliff isn’t a standard sports betting site, so it doesn’t require to be licensed by the gambling regulatory body. Since it is based on the sweepstakes model, only sweepstakes laws apply.
All states except Washington made sweepstakes legal, which means you can access Fliff in 49 states.
However, since Fliff lets you earn cash prizes, the law may differ in some states. The following is the list of states where you can use Fliff Coins but not Fliff Cash. In other words, you can use the in-game currency, which you cannot redeem for real prizes.
Finally, Fliff is available to anyone of legal age to participate in sweepstakes competitions, which is 18. This differs from real money sportsbooks, where the minimum age limit is 21.
Fliff features a sign-up bonus, similar to any other real sportsbook, which will double the amount of Fliff Cash on your first purchase up to $100 worth of Fliff Cash. You’re essentially getting free bet money to kickstart your experience on this sweepstakes platform. Make sure to get familiar with the terms related to this and other rewards at Fliff before opening an account.
The main way to get rewards is by redeeming your Fliff Cash at $1 for 1 Fliff Cash unit. To do that, you must visit the wallet section and select the Redeem Fliff Cash option. You’ll see the amount you’re eligible for redeeming (withdrawing), which is the money won from placing your bets. In other words, your Fliff Cash comes with 1x rollover requirements.
The minimum you can redeem is $50, and the maximum is $1,000 a week or $5,000 per month. Professional bettors used to betting and withdrawing thousands of dollars a month could perceive this as extremely unfavorable, meaning Fliff is a much better option for casual bettors. This limit is $500 if you’re in Rhode Island.
Also, remember that you’ll probably have to provide additional verification documents if you’re redeeming more than $599, according to the Fliff T&C section. Withdrawing funds is only available once every five days.
Fliff has a social aspect to it, meaning it’s a social sportsbook where you can compete against your friends totally for free. In other words, you can use Fliff Coins to create leaderboards and even face some of your friends head-to-head. You can even set different options for your competition and try to accumulate wins to top the leaderboard. You can also see how you compare to many other users on Fliff.
Simply put, Fliff isn’t your standard DFS platform, but it does let you compete with friends and test your sports betting skills and sports knowledge by staking coins for free. It’s as exciting as it sounds and is definitely an enjoyable experience when played with friends.
Since standard DFS is not available via Fliff (yet), there are no prize pools. In other words, you can stake and win Fliff Coins and Fliff Cash and redeem the latter for real cash. However, creating any prize pools at the moment is impossible.
Fliff is primarily designed for US sports lovers, meaning you’ll find a wide range of sports events that are popular in the country. You can choose from popular sports such as football, basketball, baseball, soccer, hockey, tennis, golf, and more. All major leagues are covered, including the NBA, NFL, NHL, MLS, and MLB, in addition to other less popular competitions from the US and around the globe. You can also bet on sports such as MMA, esports, boxing, tennis, WNBA, and more than a dozen soccer leagues.
The Gambla team couldn’t find some popular niche sports, such as darts. Hopefully, these will be introduced soon, given Fliff is still a relatively new project.
You can bet on various types of markets, but the three basic ones available for almost every sport at the Fliff platform are moneyline, point spread, and totals. If you click on the “markets” option below every match, you’ll find many choices with plenty of interesting props. However, we didn’t find a satisfying number of player props, and there were no futures, which are usually popular options with real-money sportsbooks. Then again, you can find plenty of game props and make parlays and same-game parlays.
This might be a slight downside to using Fliff, especially if you’re an experienced sports bettor. But there’s still room for Fliff to introduce other betting markets.
Fliff Cash and Fliff Coins are two types of virtual currencies used in Fliff.
Fliff Cash is an entry into the promotional sweepstakes that players can use to win real cash prizes. One unit of Fliff Cash equals $1, so you can think of it as a replacement for real money. However, you cannot purchase Fliff Cash directly. The platform will offer it free of charge, but the primary way to obtain it is as a bonus for purchasing Fliff Coins.
Fliff Coins are used to play for fun and compete against other players in the Fliff community. They provide the opportunity to win more Fliff Coins, earn XP (experience points), and move up the leaderboards while earning badges and loyalty rewards. Think of them as monopoly money, as they don’t have any real value.
You can obtain Fliff Coins regularly on the platform free of charge or buy Fliff Coin packs for real money and get Fliff Cash as a bonus.
Once again, you cannot exchange Fliff Coins for Fliff Cash or anything of real value. However, you can toggle between using Fliff Coins or Fliff Cash to make bets. If you want to place bets with the goal of earning real rewards, you will have to use Fliff Cash.
Yes, Fliff is legal in all states except for Washington.
You can redeem Fliff Cash for real-money prizes at 1 Fliff Cash unit = $1. The minimum you can redeem at once is $50.
Fliff Coins are a fake currency used for making bets at Fliff. They are different from Fliff Cash, as you cannot exchange them for real prizes.
Fliff mainly makes money by selling Fliff Coins packs to users.
Fliff Coins are fun money and cannot be withdrawn for real prizes. Apart from betting on sports, you can use them to buy experience points and rank better on the platform. You can redeem Fliff Cash for real prizes.
Fliff is a refreshing alternative to traditional online sports betting sites. It offers a fun and exciting way to win cash prizes based on sports events without risking any money. It also has excellent customer service, a valid license, and a generous rewards program.
It’s an entirely legal platform in all states except Washington and features excellent bonuses and rollover requirements. Moreover, the app is easy to use and perfect for people who don’t have plenty of experience with sports betting.
That said, Fliff does come with some drawbacks. First, it’s only available as a mobile app, meaning there’s no browser-based platform for desktop players. If you have an Android or iOS device that’s not too old, you belong to the category of people who can actually use Fliff. Creating a web app should be the primary project for the Fliff team.
Second, the platform lacks niche sports and some popular betting markets, including team futures. However, we sincerely hope they will introduce these, given that the app is still relatively new and expanding.
Overall, Fliff is worth it, as you risk virtually nothing and get to have almost the same experience as any real sports bettor or DFS player.
