Imagine participating in a live game show for the chance of winning attractive cash prizes – all from the convenience of a free app on your phone!
With the new App genre that combines live-streaming and trivia quizzes, such a possibility is now a reality.
How it works:
Though it hasn’t taken off locally yet, this App genre is currently all the rage overseas.
US-based HQ Trivia first introduced the genre with its release in the Apple Store in September last year.
At 3.00pm and 9.00pm (US time) every day, there is a live trivia contest which anyone can tune in to play.
There is a live host who asks from 10 – 12 MCQ questions, each one harder than the next. Players have to answer them in 10 seconds.
Players who get all the questions correct share the total cash prize for that game with all the others who also got it right!
In the US, the total cash prize is usually several thousand, and the hundreds of winners of the game typically can get $10-20 each per win. Not bad for 10 minutes spent playing a game.
There have been exceptions of players winning more per win, even up to $6000! It all depends on if the 12 questions are particularly hard and fewer people get all the questions right.
Payment in the US and China iterations of the game are usually through Paypal.
And it’s coming to Singapore! Soon…at least. (hint hint continue following the Singapore Go page for more info in the upcoming days :))
