PayPal Launches “Moola Mania” Sweepstakes and Game

Moola ManiaAs a one-time eBay obsessor, I’ve been using PayPal for quite a long time. However, that usage has seemingly increased as of late — even in the face of competition from Apple, Venmo, Square Cash, and others. While I can’t quite explain what’s been leading me to click that PayPal button more often these days, I can say that their recent Moola Mania sweepstakes is sure to continue the trend.

PayPal’s Moola Mania combines elements of Starbucks’ “Starbucks for Life” promotion, the game Plinko from The Price is Right (later hijacked by NBC’s The Wall), and all those classic 8-bit video games of the 80s. After gaining a play credit — which I’ll explain in a minute — you can select where to drop your coin from before it bounces off various pegs on its way to the bottom. Should your coin land in the center of the screen when all is said in done, you’ll be rewarded with the instant win prize of $5. Otherwise, you’ll receive a token that corresponds to one of four prize values: $10, $100, $1,000, or $10,000. In order to win these prizes, you’ll need to collect all three of the tokens that make up that category.

So how do you get plays for Moola Mania? The main way is to complete purchases using PayPal. As the game’s rules note, these purchases must display as “completed” in your account to qualify. If this applies to you, PayPal will then e-mail you a code to redeem on the Moola Mania site. Alternatively, you can get one free play by visiting PayPal.com/MoolaMania/CR and login to request a free code. After you receive that code, you can head to PayPal.com/MoolaMania/OAMOE to play.

Sadly, I have yet to win a prize from Moola Mania as I’ve only received two codes so far, but I do enjoy the concept. That said, I kind of wish they’d let you play the game just for fun outside of the content just because of how fun it is (although I suppose they don’t want you getting too good at it, right?). So, if you want to try the Moola Mania out for yourself and perhaps win some money along the way, go ahead and start today. The game runs until March 15th.
