About The Quizzes

What categories of quiz are there?

There are numerous categories of quiz. Some of them are on general topics, like food and drink, geography or history, while others focus on more specialist topics like a particular football club or TV series. The content of each quiz is clearly marked.

How many questions are in each quiz?

It varies. Some quizzes may only contain 20 questions while others may have up to 100 questions. The amount of questions in each quiz is clearly indicated.

How long does a quiz take to complete?

That depends on the number of questions in the quiz and how long it takes you to answer them. As a rule of thumb, allow yourself roughly 5 minutes per 20 questions.

How does the scoring work?

Each question is allocated a maximum of 10,000 points. From the moment the question appears on your screen, the points start to count down. When you click on an answer you win the number of points left at that time, assuming you get the answer correct. If you get the answer wrong you are awarded no points for that question. Your score for each question is tallied up to give you an overall score for that quiz.

What happens if I run out of time on a question?

If you time out on a question you will be awarded zero points for that question and the quiz will automatically move on to the next question. After three time-outs your game will be ended.

How long does a quiz remain open?

Each quiz has a different duration. Some will be open for as little as a day, others for a week and some for a month. The amount of time remaining before a quiz closes is clearly indicated.

Where do the questions come from?

Quizando has a team of researchers working on questions all the time. We have a database of tens of thousands of questions and add to them every single day.

Can I get the same question twice?

Yes this is possible. A 20-question quiz, for example, will be randomly picking questions from a database. So it is feasible to be asked the same question twice if you play any quiz more than once. Equally some questions cover more than one subject so there is always a chance you may get that question in a completely different quiz.

Is there a limit to how many individual quizzes I can play?

There are no limits to the number of quizzes you can play on Quizando.

Is there a limit to the amount of times I can play any one quiz?

Yes, there is a limit to the number of times you can play a single quiz This is to ensure fairness. The number of times you can play a quiz is clearly marked on the Quiz Detail Page. However, remember, only your best score will count towards the final leaderboard.

Can I play on my mobile?

Yes, Quizando can be played on any device that is connected to the Internet. However, it is important to ensure you have a strong internet connection. If you lose connection during the middle of a quiz, the chances are your game will time out. It is also important to ensure the quiz is optimized for your device. Quizando works perfectly on all modern devices but may have display issues on very small screen or older mobiles.

How is a question formulated?

Each question has four possible answers, with only one answer being correct. Some questions have pictures associated with them. If you get a question wrong, the correct answer will be subsequently displayed.

Can I suggest a quiz?

Of course, especially if it is an interesting topic we have not yet covered. We are always happy to hear your ideas and will put our researchers straight onto it if we feel it is a good idea.

Technical Questions

Does Quizando work on all devices?

Our website is designed to work on the vast majority of PCs, laptops, tablets and mobile phones using browsers like Chrome, Firefox and Safari. However, Quizando, like all websites, will obviously work smoother on more modern devices.

Do I need a specific screen size to play Quizando?

Not at all. Quizando is a responsive website and will resize itself automatically to any screen size. However, it is up to you to ensure your screen size is sufficient to ensure you can see questions and answers at the same time while playing.

What sort of Internet connection do I need to run the game?

The faster the better! Although the game doesn’t require a specific level of service, the better your Internet connection the smoother the game will run. We don't suggest you play a game unless you are certain your connection is strong and reliable.

Can I play Quizando while doing other things on my device?

That’s entirely up to you but we would always suggest you close any applications or programs you may have running in the background that you don’t need.

Winnings

How does the prize pool work?

Every time you pay an entry fee to take part in a quiz, a percentage of that fee is placed straight into the prize pool. That pool is the total amount of money available for dividing up amongst the winners at the end of a particular quiz.

Is there a guaranteed prize for each quiz?

Yes. Because each quiz essentially starts off with a prize pool of zero, Quizando puts in a minimum prize, every game played for real money adds to this pool.

How does the prize split work?

Each quiz has a unique prize split. It may be a winner-takes-all competition or it might be an equal split between the top three contestants and so on. The prize split for each game is clearly marked.

How do I collect my prize?

The ranking on the leaderboard one hour after the end of the quiz will be taken as final. This is to ensure that anybody who started the quiz just before entries closed is given enough time to finish their game. Once the leaderboard has been confirmed as final, the winnings will be automatically moved to the winners’ Quizando accounts.

What happens if there is a tie?

We have taken every precaution to ensure ties are highly unlikely. However, if, for example, two players are tied at the top of the leaderboard then the prize money allocated to first and second place will be combined and divided equally between the two players.

About Tokens

Can I buy tokens?

No. Quizando tokens are only awarded on a promotional basis.

How many tokens does it cost to play a game?

Each token has a perceived value of €0.50. So, if the entry fee for a game is €1 it will take two tokens to play, if the entry fee is €2 then it will take four tokens to play and so on.

Do the tokens add to the prize fund?

No. When you play a game using tokens no funds are added to the prize pool.

Can I still win if I play with a bonus token?

Absolutely. Whether you play with real money or bonus tokens, your final position on the leaderboard is equally valid.

Can I cash in or withdraw my tokens?

No. Tokens are for use purely within the site and in no way constitute any form of currency.
