    Dunno what this is, never heard of it (Some kind of mobile quiz app) ... but was just reading this on the Metro

    I've been playing this a while, the missus put me onto it. It's completely free to download, originally was iOS only but now works on android. Not sure if it works on tablets or just mobiles as you need a mobile number to register but it only takes a few mins to setup and you can win money (paid via paypal). It used to be US shows only (live at 8pm and 2am) where anyone could enter but they started doing UK-only shows which are 3pm and 9pm due to so many people playing the US ones.

    They changed it a while ago and I don't think the UK players can play the US ones unless its a special one like the one with Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson last night. They also do a sunday draw around 3pm. The daily UK draws at 3 and 9 are usually for 550 and the sunday draw is usually around 5000 but seems to vary a lot. One week it was 2000, one it was 10000. The money rolls over so if no-one wins the the 3pm UK one, it rolls over to 1100 at 9pm and keeps rolling over until someone has won. The money is split between all the winners. Yesterday's special with the rock was for $300,000. It was won by 83 people and they all won $3614.45 each (I know because I took a screenshot to show the missus ).

    The game is 12 questions, each question has 3 possible answers and you have to know (or guess) the correct answer to move onto the next question. If you get all of them right you win or split the prize. The shows only last about 10-15 minutes.

    If you refer a friend, you get an extra life which can be used during a game. you can only use one per game so if you get a question wrong, you can use the extra life to stay in the game and keep playing. Obviously I won't complain if anyone puts my username that I use on here down as a referral

    Is it worth playing?, have you come close to winning anything?

    I was interested to read about this and I love quizzes, but unfortunately both my iphone and my ipad are too elderly to cope with the app!
    Oh well, off to try to win a new phone before this one really does die...
    Love all, trust a few. Do wrong to none.

It costs nothing to enter and you can win free money from it twice a day. The game lasts about 15 minutes max so you don't have to dedicate a lot of time to it. Even if you don't know an answer you have a 1 in 3 chance of guessing correctly so there's always a chance you can guess your way to winning. The furthest I got was question 8 and 3 of them were guesses.

    There is a British version of this which I love to play! The app is called Cash Show. They have live games at 12.30 and 9. I've got a few pound on the kitty , not good enough to win more than pence a game but really fun!

    It's so hard! I'm usually pretty good at quizzing but been playing this for a week and best I've got is 8 questions right.
    RubyS0H0 (they are zeros) if anyone fancies using my referral code so I get an extra life (though obviously original poster deserves more for asking first)
    Good luck everyone!

    I've been playing for about a week now. Not got any further than Q7 but it's very addictive. I love it
    Don't fear change. You may lose something good, but you may also gain something great.

    Thank you to the lovely person who gave me an extra life over the weekend. I still didn't win but it was great to be given another go!

    I found out about this yesterday and played first couple of games - got to about Q6 what I like is that it's brings the family together my son got a computer game question right that I wouldn't have known. Searching last night also found Cash Show but not played it yet I'd be interested to know if there are any other such apps - love trivia. my referral name is hillkath if anyone what's to use and give me a free life

    (edit) Just realised there's an invitation code for Cash Show aswell XFA65H if anyone uses it I get a free life


    Good luck everyone!!
