BENGALURU: TicTok Games has launched India’s first trivia gaming app that gives users a chance to win big-ticket prizes including Honda City car, Harley Davidson motorcycle, iPhone 7 and many more goodies. Users living anywhere in India (except Assam and Orissa) can download the TicTok App on Android or iOS platform and register using their email id, Google Plus or Facebook account.
The company says that gamers can play the quizzes and win as many prizes as possible by paying a nominal subscription fee of Rs. 500 (about $7) per month. The platform also allows a three-day trial period initially where the users can familiarize themselves with the intuitive interface and make the most of every minute of their paid monthly subscription.
Each quiz offers a particular prize displayed on the screen, lasts for 15 minutes and includes five-six trivia questions. Right after the quiz period expires, the gamer giving all correct answers in the minimum possible time is declared as the winner. Users get to reach higher levels and play for bigger and bigger rewards by continuing to give correct answers for various quizzes at each level. These ‘Levels’ can be redeemed anytime by paying a nominal price, typically 3% of the MRP of any product, to claim the reward.
This platform is the brainchild of Chanchal Kurele, Paavan Nanda and Saumya Singh.
Paavan Nanda, Founding Partner of TicTok Games, commented by saying, “We are excited to launch TicTok as India’s first mobile gaming app that gives users a chance to win prizes from the real world just by playing games in the virtual world. India is poised to become one of the leading markets in the gaming sector. Our main idea behind launching TicTok Games is to provide a platform that offers a combination of entertainment and knowledge while helping them realize their dreams. It will appeal to the youth as well as the rest of the population alike. We are targeting to achieve 150,000-200,000 app installs in the first month.”
In addition to Honda City, iPhone 7 etc., some of the other prizes that users will stand to win include Bose Speakers, Philips headsets and speaker systems, Bluetooth speakers, Fitbit, Amazon Kindle Reader, iPad, PlayStation, Xbox, power banks, mobile phones from Samsung, Motorola, Micromax and other brands, as well as deal vouchers for Beer Café, Big Bazaar, Myntra, Shoppers Stop, UCB, MakeMyTrip etc. TicTok will also offer surprise prizes from time to time.
