What is Greenlight Family Trivia? How do I join and play the game?


What is Greenlight Family Trivia?

Greenlight Family Trivia is a live gameshow (typically on Sunday at 8pm ET) where players join from desktop or mobile and answer multiple choice questions about the world of money to compete for the grand prize Jackpot. 

How do I play?

You do not have to be a current Greenlight customer to play. Anyone 13+ is eligible to sign up to play! To get access to the game, you'll need to sign up for trivia reminders, which will be sent 1 hr and 5 mins prior to the game's start and link you into our live broadcast. 

Can I sign up for reminders to play?

You sure can! Fill out the form on this page to be reminded. 

How do I win?

The players that earn the most points at the end of the game win! To win points, you must answer questions correctly. The faster you submit a correct answer, the most points you will earn. If there is only one winner, they'll take home the full eligible jackpot for the night. If there are multiple winners, they will split the night's jackpot. 

A typical game has the following game structure:
- 12 multiple-choice questions per game
- 15 seconds to answer each question
- Each question worth up to 20 points
- As time ticks on, a correct answer to a question is worth fewer and fewer points. For example: If half of the 15 seconds have elapsed, you'll only be rewarded with 10 of the 20 points for a correct answer. 
- There are multiple prize tiers in our game that each have an eligible prize based on the player's point-value rank at the end of the game. This may vary by game but is always explained at the beginning!
