Makes you login everyday at certain times for useless bonus items
The game uses their gem currency to make things seem a lot less expensive than they are. For example: most dragons cost about 1500 gems, and they never put the cost of gems next to the dragon’s cost. So people end up spending 50.00 US dollars, because of the difference between gems and US dollars. 1500 gems = 50.00 US dollars
Everything in this game is on a timer
Many events around Easter, Christmas, etc, that urge you to spend money as soon as possible.
Gems are a “rare” in game currency. The most expensive gem package is 100 US dollars. The app hopes that you end up spending a whole lot of money on gems, because most items cost gems.
Currently there is a “offer” for gems you can do. You can complete multiple scams and intrusive quizzes just for a couple of gems. They use the quizzes to ask you personal information for their advertisements. The quizzes often ask about details about your job, state of living, and even your medical care. Most of the “quizzes” also ask about previous cancer experiences, in hopes to profit off that as well.
Every action you do has a timer for its completion, if you don’t login at the right time for the timer you might lose the things you were trying to do.
You have to repeatedly spend hours and hours just waiting, to get useless “rare” dragons.
Can send small Gem gifts, but the gifts are small enough that any guilt is negligible.
New dragons are always coming out, making it impossible to truly complete your collection.
