X-Credits still in "scam mode" here. I watch the Ad but no rewards.
On the other hand I'm sure GL's still earning from advertisers everytime I play an Ad.

The free for watching ads NS 5min. isnt activated yet, 24 hrs this way, anyone get this button working?

...same for me on Windows (see my previous) - The 'PLAY AD!' button remains greyed out. - Doesn't work.

On Android it worked once (was able to claim the 5-min. Nitro Starters)  then it stopped working - The 'PLAY AD!' button is green, ads play but I don't receive the goodies.

On iOS, there are a set of ads that run in a newer format. Those only give rewards if you can actually try to play the game in the ad. If they only demo the game and don’t allow you to play it, then you don’t get a reward. There are also some ads that don’t use the new format. Those still give rewards.

This is true for anything that runs ads for free stuff. To get the rewards, you just have to be relentless and keep running the ads over and over again until you get one that gives rewards. After a while you’ll recognize which ones work and the ones that don’t.

You just have to decide if the rewards are worth the tedium off running ads over and over again.

@oldman - yeah, I already tried.that on Android (play ad mini-games) - no joy. 

On Windows it's a dif. issue, as the 'PLAY AD!' button remains greyed out I'm unable to play the adverts for the Free 5-min. Nitro Starters.

☹️ Sorry, looks like different platforms have different problems, but it's bad everywhere.

 Some might argue, you are better off than me. At least you know the ads are completely broken and don't have to watch any. I have to watch hundreds for just a few scraps... uhmm... rewards. 😜
