IQ - Live Trivia Game Show is the newest app craze where you can win real cash! Here's everything you need to know to play. IQ Trivia is a free live trivia game show where you can actually win real money. Whether you're brand new to IQ Trivia or you have been playing from the beginning, here's everything you need to know in order to play and win some cold hard cash!
How to play?
IQ Trivia goes live twice a day on weekdays (1:30 PM IST and 9:00 PM IST) and usually just once each day on the weekend (9 PM IST). When it's time to play, you just have to launch the IQ Trivia app and you'll be greeted by some text and music as you wait in the lobby for the game to start.
Once the game starts, the host of that game will come on your screen and start talking. Usually, they crack a few jokes, explain the rules very briefly, and then start asking you (and the hundreds of thousands other people) questions.
The question along with the three potential answers will pop up on your screen, tap on the answer you want to choose, and if you get it right you move on to the next question. If you answer all of the questions correctly you will win money!
Over the course of about 15 minutes, the host will ask 12 different questions. Of course, the first question is usually quite easy, but as you progress through each round, the trivia will become more difficult.
IQ is typically general trivia, meaning the questions will touch on a plethora of different subjects like entertainment, world news, sports, history, geography, and more. On occasion, IQ will choose a theme. For example, on New Year's Eve, they asked a lot of questions about the history of New Year's Eve traditions.
You must be quick
You have to answer the questions pretty quickly to not be eliminated from the round. You only have 10 seconds from the time the host starts reading the questions to tap the answer you want to choose. Usually, by the time the question is written out on your screen and all three answers are in front of you, you will only have about four or five seconds to tap your answer — be quick on your feet!
If you don't know an answer — take a guess! With only three options to every question, you have a 33% chance of getting it right and moving on to the next question. Just like an exam, it's never in your best interest to leave a question blank!
One strike (Wrong Answer) and you're out
As soon as you get one question wrong or don't answer within the time limit, you are out of the game. You can keep watching the rest of the game if you wish but will be unable to answer any more questions.
When you win
If you're smart or lucky enough to win IQ Trivia, congratulations, you will be awarded some cash! Each game will have a pot of money that is up for grabs, and all players who answer all twelve question correctly split the pot evenly.
Some games can get over a million active players, meaning you will almost always be splitting the pot with multiple people.
When you win, the money is put in your IQ account, and once you have Rs. 500 or more, you can transfer it to your account.
