Game Scoring & Rules

Last Update July 1 2018


Trivia games are scored based on accuracy and speed answering the trivia questions. Scoring is based first on accuracy and second on timing. Average correct answer time serves as the tiebreaker when players get the same number of questions correct.


Example 1: In a tournament with 10 questions, a score of 10 questions correct with an average correct answer time of 7 seconds is better than a score of 9 questions correct with an average correct answer time of 3 seconds.


Example 2: In a tournament with 10 questions, a score of 10 questions correct with an average correct answer time of 5 seconds is better than a score of 10 questions correct with an average correct answer time of 7 seconds.

You must be 18 years of age or over as well as a resident of AND physically located in the USA or Canada to make a deposit or play in any CashTrivia contest with an entry fee or prize. If you are physically located in Alabama, Arizona, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, Nevada, Texas or Washington, you cannot deposit or play for real money. For further information regarding eligibility, please consult our official Terms of Use.

Each player on CashTrivia is allowed one account and "multi-accounting" is expressly prohibited. If CashTrivia determines that you have opened, maintained, used or controlled more than one account, any or all of your accounts may be terminated or suspended and any prizes you've won may be revoked or withheld.

There are a variety of behaviors that are detrimental to CashTrivia and other players on the Service. Engaging in those behaviors may result in suspension of some or all functions associated with your account. Suspended players are expected to respect the disciplinary actions imposed on their accounts and all communication regarding restoration of your account should take place via the support@purplegator.net email account.

CashTrivia may require users to change their user names in cases where the name is offensive or promotes a commercial venture. The requirement to change will be determined at CashTrivia’s sole discretion, and if requests are ignored, CashTrivia may unilaterally change a player’s user name.

All open contests that are completed on CashTrivia have a predetermined prize pool and number of entrants. Contests labeled as "Guaranteed" will always run and pay out regardless if the contest starts as unfilled. Some structured contests, however, require a specified number of participants. If that number of participants is not reached before the start of the contest, the contest will not take place and your entrance fee will be refunded. For example, a head-to-head challenge cannot take place without two willing competitors.

Some contests have limits on the maximum number of entries that a single user may submit. If applicable, these limits will be specified in the description of each contest. These limits may vary from contest to contest.

Use of any scripts are prohibited on CashTrivia.

You can withdraw your money at any time, subject to anti-fraud checks on playing patterns and deposits prior to processing. For all withdrawals we require a valid mailing address, birthday and social security number in order to file the appropriate tax forms at year end. To withdraw, simply click the Withdraw link on your account dropdown or in your My Account section. Enter the amount you wish to withdraw, along with payee information. PayPal requests will be processed within 48 hours, while check withdrawals take 7-10 days to process. We conduct anti-fraud checks on playing patterns and deposits prior to processing a withdrawal.


In cases where you have received a bonus or other benefits as a result of your deposit and have not yet played through the deposit (entering contests whose total entry fees equal the value of the deposit), CashTrivia reserves the right to refuse the withdrawal and/or close your account.

You may deposit money into your CashTrivia account using Paypal or a credit card. If you're having any problems depositing money then get in touch and we'll deal with the issue as soon possible. There may be limits on the amount you may deposit in certain circumstances.


In accordance with state requirements, CashTrivia restricts deposits in any calendar month for residents of certain states unless the user has requested and received approval for an increase. For Massachusetts residents the deposit limit level is $1,000 per calendar month. For Tennessee residents and people located in Tennessee, the deposit limit level is $2,500 per calendar month.

We try to settle contests and run payments as quickly as possible, but must ensure we do so accurately. Most contests are settled immediately after a contest is completed, however there may be times where settlement is not immediate and may occur shortly after the contest is completed.

On rare occasions, a contest may be scored incorrectly. In these cases the settlement process (including payment) may be reversed and games resettled correctly.

While we try to ensure that CashTrivia is functioning smoothly at all times, like any online service we may periodically experience periods of outage or slow performance. These can sometimes result in an inability to access the Service or problems entering new contests. If you're unable to access the Service, please report the problems by emailing us at support@purplegator.net. If there are sustained periods where players are unable to access Service functionality, we may provide instructions on how to cancel your entries over email prior to game time.

CashTrivia also reserves that right to cancel contests at our discretion, without any restrictions. This would typically be done only in cases where we believe that due to problems on the Service or events impacting the sporting events, there would be a widespread impact on the integrity of contests.
