How To Win HQ Trivia $$$, From People Who Have Actually Done It
The new quiz app is sweeping the globe... and giving away serious cash prizes!
Long-gone are the days of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and Jeopardy! TV gameshows of the 1990s and 2000s. There's a new iPhone question-based game that's giving away cash prizes to players lucky enough to make it to the end.
HQ Trivia is a live trivia game show that any iPhone user can download.
Users then have access to the app's twice daily (on weekdays) 15-minute gameshows in which they have to answer a dozen rapid-fire multiple-choice trivia questions.
Players who answer all questions correctly within 10 seconds and make it to the end split the pool of cash with all the other winners. Cash prize pool amounts have been in the thousands of dollars lately.
Players who invite friends with a referral code earn "extra lives" that allow them to stay in the game even if they answer a question incorrectly.
So how do you actually win HQ Trivia? Quite a few previous winners have their own strategies that have paid off — literally.
1. Play every single game.
Games occur every weekday at 3 p.m. and 9 p.m. EST. The more times you play, the better your odds are of making it to the end, and the more you will get a feel for the type of questions asked.
2. Play with friends, family members, or colleagues.
The more heads you have in the game, the more likely someone in the room will know the answer to each question. Keep in mind that you will most likely have to split the winnings with everyone on your team, however.
3. Swipe the comments to the right.
Not only will you be distracted by reading the live comments feed, but it has also caused the app to crash for several players. Out of sight, out of mind.
4. Sign up other users.
Use the referral code given to you to sign up friends, family, Twitter followers — anyone! The more people you refer with your code, the more "extra lives" you will earn. These will keep you in the game even if you miss a question here or there.
