It’s fun but doesn’t always work

Ok so I try to play this everyday because it’s pretty cool and a lot of fun but it glitches really hard a lot and to make it glitch less you have to be connected to a super strong WiFi many many times I have been far along the game and it glitches and when it goes back to normal it says I clicked an answer when I never did and it’s always the wrong one so I get kicked out and lose because the game malfunctioned. I understand they are live-streaming a game show but if this could get fixed the game would be 100x better. If you have super strong WiFi and you Like trivia game ands winning money I would recommend it but if your WiFi is bad to moderate Maybe steer away or just watch because chances are it will glitch and you will lose. I have found the creators created Vine for some people who created such a huge app they should work harder on this one many people have it lag a lot and as stated in many other reviews the hosts talk way to much and drag it on and make aborting jokes plus they try to hype up $2,000 when the reality of it is on average 150 people win and the most I have seen some one win is $32 and on the $10,000 people won $5 because so many played and won they should start the games when it hits a certain number of people so the prize is better and it doesn’t lag (400,000 people)

Great and Original-The Current Generation Family Fued

I can say that I’ve been playing this game since November of this year and man is it “first of all” addictive and the schedule for this game helps as well, for weekdays the games are held 6 hours apart from each other (3PM EST and 9PM EST) and on the weekends, they have the 9PM EST game which honestly for me, makes it very convenient to tune in and play. I’ve also never seen any other app like it. There are some problems once and a while, but for the most part, they’ve ironed them out really well and continue to iron them. They try their best to give everyone a fair chance at winning or splitting the cash prize. They do a great job on adding features and mostly bug fixes to make the experience even better than previously. I also like how it’s evolved so much over just the past month. The HQ developers do in fact work on the game and they push updates regularly so now the game CAN handle the ever-growing 700k+ people that are tuning in to play so don’t worry about problems with lag much and if so, the question tab will appear either way. In my opinion, the host is extremely funny and makes light of any situation. I WOULDN’T consider him to be annoying or cringing. So YES, this is a definite recommendation from me to download this game and at least try it out once.

Very frustrated w/ cash out - please advise!

The last day of “last season” HQ operated, before it shut down, I received a notification to cashout. When I tried, it said there wasn’t enough, and it went to $0!! I was bummed because I worked hard to win that over several games! (see below.) I haven’t won at all this season yet, and would love to see Levels &/or 3 lives come back. But literally a few days ago, my previous balance finally showed again on Wed April 29, and I took a screenshot. (Today is May 2) Now it shows down by half! What the heck?!
Please advise, and can I use my husband’s email and his PayPal, as I don’t have a PayPal acct. Thanks again - comtngirl

Written end of previous season - Lots of people were eliminated for no reason after a technical error started the game late! People kept telling you in the chat. In previous games when something major like that happened, you’d restart again. Then each game at 21 Qs is really too long anyway, and only worth $1,000, but each winner got $3,000???? If you don’t at least have integrity to do the right thing, you will lose lots more people. Sometimes it’s “Pride, not necessarily the amount of the prize” that keeps people coming back, if the winning is attainable, or at least the chance to win. If I win, it’s only a few cents here and there, but that kept me coming back, as did the hard-earned levels and Lives I had attained. Consider this for the future. Thanks. comtngirl
