I love playing trivia games

On Tuesday and Thursdays their game is really easy to win because it’s about celebrity’s,tv shows,movies,and music

Pros:

It’s really fun to play and it’s not that hard to win

Cons:

They don’t give out that much money

QLive DOES NOT pay, I emailed them about this and they said I live outside the UK. Yes I travel between the US and UK for work all the time. This is normal. I then requested my data and found out that they felt like they had to go stalk my twitter page to find out more information about me. Luckily I am a private person, but this is very concerning for a company to do. They should not be trusted. Now on their US version of the game they are offering 3 lives for good reviews on Product Hunt, this is illegal. Hopefully this game gets taken off the app store. Very sketchy.

Pros:

Fun to play with friends

Cons:

They lie and ban players

I'd collected about $150 in prizing and had around $700 coming in a couple of days from leaderboard prizes. I was cynically banned without evidence and have received no communication from these charlatans at all.

Pros:

Easy to win

Cons:

Bans players without evidence or reason when they have won or are about to win sizeable prizes.

Thanks for sharing your experience. I am glad others are speaking out about this. They are very good at ignoring their players when it comes to claiming prize money.

I know of a few people who were not paid their leaderboard winnings and I was not paid my trivia winnings

CEO, The Q
Lewis was a known cheater and violator of our TOS. It’s unfortunate users try to “game” the system and ruin the experience for those that play fairly. We have invested a lot of time and built tools to automate bot and other malicious behavior detection among users of our platform and those tools are available to all of our SDK and global partners!
CEO, The Q
These types of users exist in discord groups and other channels across the web and It’s unfortunate they troll the way they do but that’s just the internet. This listing is also related to our B2B offering not the consumer app which serves as a demo of our full product capabilities and each app integration will have its own game rules and use of our technology. To those of you all interested in the cheater community that exists in live gaming here is our stance on it and we actively try to combat it. https://link.medium.com/PuXlndf5EX One of our game modes cannot be beat by bots as the answers are generated in real time by the audience and question writing and wording is one of the ways to defend against it for core trivia. If interested in the toolset we have built to assist in identifying malicious users feel free to reach out. Within the SDKs capabilities it also offers the option to give our prizes outside of cash such as in app currency or coupons we believe those types of implementations will also discourage cheaters.

Play this to waste your time, I guess.

Pros:

None

Cons:

They don’t pay out. Won on leaderboard twice and never received prizes. Been waiting almost two months for cash out in trivia winnings.

I enjoy playing the live games and the chance to win money.

Pros:

Fun to play

Cons:

Less glitches would be nice.

I like trivia

They will ignore your cashout requests and all attempts at contact until they eventually say you were "banned for breaking their TOS." I was told that and my account wasn't even banned. It's their canned reply to someone asking about their money. There are tons of reports of it all over the Internet. Avoid this game unless you want to play trivia for nothing.

Pros:

Jmo hosting drunk is funny

Cons:

The Q does not pay their winners.

The Q looked like it was poised to take a step forward when they introduced a new game mode in April. Instead they copied a now defunct app but made the game mode worse, and replaced their regular trivia with it instead. While they have increased "total prize pool" from $4,000 to $4,750 a week they have distributed it in a bizarre way. The subscribers only game has been halved and there are now 4 top heavy shows a week of $1,000 but with extremely easy questions. The app features the highest minimum cashout of any trivia app at $25, and it will take you a while to get there since prizes for $1,000 games tends to be ~$1 while their $100 games might net you $0.25. Make sure you don't win too much though because there are widespread reports of The Q suddenly ceasing payments under the guise of a "ban". Don't attempt to get any help in-app, you won't get a response although they have a message feature for it.

Pros:

Easy trivia

Cons:

Does not pay players, technical issues are common, prize distribution and degree of difficulty has made it barely worth playing

The q has a history of banning winners that have not broken the terms of service. Also they bought reviews. Before they did this, they had a 2 star rating.

Pros:

nothing

Cons:

They do not pay their winners and they bought fake App Store reviews

Ask yourself seriously if you want to work with a company that is as deeply untrustworthy as this one. In their existing app, once you fight the tiny prizes to actually reach their cashout minimum they will just shadowban you, not pay, and ignore all your support requests. You will not get any effective engagement from this company as they have a complete and utter disregard for their actual users.

Pros:

Trivia is fun

Cons:

Doesn't pay out
