There’s a lot of promises for free Robux out there. And there’s a whole lot of scams. The internet abounds with supposed ‘Robux Generators’, hacks, and phony promo codes promising millions of quick Robux.
And with the game getting grey around the temples at almost 15 years since the initial release, Roblox players are forced to wade through an overabundance of outdated guides and misinformation disguising actual ways to get free Robux.
Seriously, there are guides being published in 2020 about the Affiliate/Referral program that hasn’t been around for years. Luckily for you, we know what we’re talking about. Read on to learn real and legitimate ways to earn Robux without ever spending a dime.
Get free Robux by developing games
The first and most powerful way of earning Robux is to help build its massive community — and have fun with it too. Roblox isn’t a game in and of itself. It’s a publishing platform for the user-generated games built within the Roblox Studio Engine. The Roblox Studio, with its simple voxel-based construction, is an excellent place for people to learn the ropes of game design and get their hands dirty with some practical game development experience.
Not to mention the best way to earn serious amounts of Robux — or, if you’re especially ambitious, piles and piles of real world money through the Developer Exchange program that lets you convert Robux into actual cash.
Indeed, there are massive games on the platform way, way past the free Robux stage. Games like Adopt Me! which attracts tens of millions of active players each month, earning DreamCraft, the developers, literal millions of dollars. Seriously, they employ well-paid, salaried game developers to work full-time on Adopt Me!
At first, that may sound like an unattainable goal. As the current Roblox leader with tons of manpower driving its development, Adopt Me! is, of course, a special case. But that doesn’t mean you can’t pocket more than enough Robux through Roblox Studio to fund a lavish Roblox player experience by yourself. There are thousands of games earning their creators tons of free Robux on a regular basis.
First, you’ll need to spend some time learning the basics of Roblox game development. It’s not difficult; Roblox has a massive amount of content and learning resources for aspiring developers. From game design to monetization, marketing, and device-optimization — absolutely everything you could possibly need is available in the form of written guides, video tutorials, and even pre-made game kits.
As a developer, you’ll earn the lion’s share of Robux on any and all purchases made within your game. You can choose to charge up-front for access to the game, create game passes to unlock privileges, sell items for player convenience in an in-game store, or do a combination of all of these.
Get free Robux by selling game passes
A great way to make money through your game is to sell game passes that unlock special features for players inside your world — similar to premium membership or downloadable content in other, more familiar games.
These passes are limited to a one time purchase per player and can include anything, from lifting area restrictions, permanent boosts, unique abilities, and other special privileges.
Think critically about the kinds of passes that make sense for your game. Is it an MMORPG? Perhaps include some form of area-restriction, reserving entrance to swaths of explorable land behind a game pass. Or, if it’s a Battle Royale, maybe offer monthly cosmetic perks or exclusive reward tracks. Examine the games of the genre — and other genres for that matter — and the sorts of exclusive perks you could sell for one-time purchases.
The next step is to create an image, configure the pass, and upload it to the game. Remember: the game pass should provide players a tangible benefit that makes it worth the Robux. In a way, the game pass should sell itself — but nonetheless, make sure you promote it in-game! You can implement regular purchase prompts, NPC vendors, digital fliers. Get creative; Games like Adopt Me! even use literal in-game billboards to promote new products and events.

Get free Robux by selling developer Products
As opposed to game passes, Developer Products can be purchased as many times as desired and can create a steady source of Robux income for the developers. These can be anything the player uses — ammo, equipment, consumables, collectibles.
Think about the resources important to your game, and consider how making them available for purchase might affect gameplay. While you certainly have a right to be compensated for developing your game and making it available, games that skew heavily towards pay-to-win often sour the playerbase and result in lower long term Robux income.
Simply use what you’ve learned from the Roblox Developer’s Hub to create the items you’ve conceived. Test them out, do experiments, and remember to keep tabs on the economy of your game.
You may have to tweak prices every now and then or use other forms of economic intervention to ensure there is always a demand for what you’re selling. You can use NPC vendors to distribute these items to players in-game or sell directly through the store featured on the game’s front page.

Get free Robux by earning Google Play Credit
If game design isn’t your thing, and you’d rather spend time enjoying your favorite Roblox games, the other way to legitimately earn free Robux is by redeeming Play Store credit.
Remember: there is no such thing as free lunch. You will probably spend time filling out marketing surveys, downloading apps, or playing other games, but will earn Play Store credit that can be used to purchase Robux. It’s not glorious, but it is a concrete way to accrue that precious Robux without pulling out your wallet.
Where to earn Play Store credit:
Below are a few of the better-known places to earn Play Store credit. However, always be judicious about giving out your personal information. Whenever looking at a new site, be sure to read reviews and vet its credentials as best you can to avoid anything shady.
Watch Out for Scams
There are no Robux generators. Robux is a currency produced only by Roblox that operates like cash in your wallet, except impossible to counterfeit. Sites, YouTubers, apps that promise free Robux for nothing in return are always scams — often after your personal information or account logins. Our guide on ‘Adopt Me! scams‘ covers some cheap tactics extrapolated by scammers across the Roblox multiverse.
