Playing Solitaire for money is incredibly easy with the Pocket7Games app. Most people already know how to play Solitaire, and because you’re always matched to a player of a similar skill level, you don’t just end up playing against the top 1% of players. Best of all, you can turn free Tickets into cash. To help you win real cash with Solitaire!, I’ve put together a list of ten tips and strategies that can help you win your next Solitaire! game on the Pocket7Games app.
- Use the tap
When you tap a card in Solitaire!, it’s automatically placed in an position. Especially in the beginning stages of a game, tapping the cards you want to play can save you precious time. Later on, you might have a better idea of where to place a card than the automatic placement, but using the automatic placement taps in your first minute is a great way to get ahead of your opponent.
2. Stop the game when you’re out of options
This tip is especially important for beginning players. In the Pocket7Games app, Solitaire! is a game where you win based on skill and time. Often, the player who has exhausted all the available options and ends the game first, wins. Only rarely do you find a way to keep playing when you’ve initially assessed all your options. Play the best you can, but don’t wait too long to stop the game.
3. Don’t rush
At the same time, make sure you take the time you need to see solutions that aren’t immediately apparent. In other words, you’ll need some time to see if there is a way to shift things around and rack up points after all. Rushing won’t help you win a game or get you to one of the cash prizes in Solitaire!
4. Use all the free draws
If you’ve run out of options early, make sure you use the free draws that are available. Making your way through these cards won’t take that long and might just get you the card you’ve been missing so you can continue playing and increase your score. You get three free draws through the deck, and using them all doesn’t cost you anything, but can add quite a few points to your score.
5. Don’t skimp on buying an extra draw
That being said, don’t stop the game simply because you don’t want to spend the points on an extra draw. Placing one of those cards in the draw will make up for the points you spent, and often create a cascade of new possibilities. My rule of thumb is to buy another draw if I know there’s a combination in there, or if two positions have switched on the playing field.
I’m not here to tell you how to play, but when you’re starting a game of Solitaire! for money, make sure you set aside the time it takes to win. You don’t want to miss out on cash prizes by getting distracted.
7. Use the ‘undo’ button
It’s there for a reason, and it has saved my game more often than I care to admit. I use the undo button when I’ve placed a card from the draw that I already had available in the playing area.
8. Free up space in the playing area
That ties neatly into this next tip: focus on getting your playing area open. Make space for your Kings, because all other space, combinations, and freed-up cards come from those.
9. Prioritize cards that are not in the draw
Also related: always prioritize cards in the playing area. If you’ve drawn a card that’s also available in the playing area, you should play the latter. In the late game, those cards blocked by other cards are much harder to get than the cards included in the draw.
10. Keep your stacks balanced
The final tip: keep your stacks balanced. It often happens that you can start building a top stack after you’ve placed your first Ace. But getting one stack much further along than others can block your progress in the draw and other cards you unlock. It’s best to make sure your stacks grow more or less simultaneously, since you need cards from one stack to free up cards from another.
